    M35A3 dual fuel tank setup

    Hello, Just finished mounting 395/85R20s and an electric fuel pump on the M35A3. Which left me without a reasonable way of putting the spare in the original location. But... plenty of room to hang a 2nd fuel tank. Anyone done this? I can see taking the return line down the driver's side...

    best location to tap accessory switched power in M35A3

    Howdy, Just hooked up an electric fuel pump on an M35A3 and am looking for the right place to hook the trigger wire for the relay.

    MEP-802/3 noco charger placement

    Hi All, Somewhere on here I came across a thread where someone mounted a noco gen2m inside their MEP-802/3. Of course the great google isn't being of much assistance on this matter. So, before I reinvent the wheel, I thought I'd ask a couple/few questions: Where have other seen fit to mount...

    hunting for Allison 1545 front pump

    Hello All, I recently acquired an M35A3. The transmission went out for a rebuild because of the typical 4th/reverse scenario. All is done - with the exception of tracking down a new front pump. Anybody have any leads on one? I've tried Defeo and Drapco so far with no luck. Thank you, SJ

    802A cooling

    Howdy, While looking at my 802a running the other day, I noticed 2 things: the temp gauge was non-functional (needle at 7 o'clock position) and the coolant bottle was low. Famous last words: the temp gauge "was working last time I fired it up". I checked the radiator (full) and added a bit...

    robustness of 802A alternator

    Howdy Folks, While figuring out how and where to station my MEP-802A at my house, I began wondering about the 24v alternator. How robust is it? Would it be able to charge 2x 200AH AGM batteries in 24v series reasonably? Is the alternator going to be 'kind' to the AGM battery or will it...
