    M816 hoist winch cable replacement

    I have a main hoist cable to replace on my M816 wrecker. I am using a three part line if it makes a difference. I have TM 9-2320-260-20-3-4 and it explains the change out well. I would like to have a new cable on hand when I take the old cable off so I can put it back together the same day...

    I recently got a MEP005A 30 kw genset from Ft Meade and have gotten quite the education on these units. I didn't preview the one I bought in October and found the engine locked tight. Further investigation tells that loads of gensets are sent from Letterkenny to other GL sites to be sold. Many...

    M146 Camper

    The M146 uses the same standard 2 1/2" :-D king pin as most all civvy semi's use and should hook up to any M818 tractor or deuce tractor.

    Recovered two M105's with one deuce

    The cats are surely civilian. They have been working as contractors guarding the motor pool from off base mice that may harm the trucks. :roll: The two guard cats caught by the camera were making their rounds inspecting the new vehicles for the possibility of any stowaway government mice...
