    Steel Soldiers MV of the month 2020 - May VOTE HERE

    I have been thinking about making a branching in my dump hydraulics, to manipulate legs to raise the bed from the frame etc, but these tools are cool as well. Have to figure that out.

    Steel Soldiers MV of the month 2020 - May VOTE HERE

    Great music with it, from what is it? That truck is almost as strange (ugly) as the "FAT DAF" truck. Love it. Then again, I am a sucker for Canadian stuff

    I Bought a 100 Year Old Army Trailer Today

    I like how they start with the time frame context before talking about utility. For showing some history, not a bad video at all.

    Is it safer to wear seatbelts, or not?

    The older I get, the more know thats not true. Now I am getting old (or at least pensioned) I just know I know nothing. And I am secure in that knowledge.

    I Bought a 100 Year Old Army Trailer Today

    Now there is an easy restore project for a sunny afternoon. Good wash and more or less ready it seems. Are you thinking about contacting the WWI museum or any other WWI history museum or organization to get some info on use during the war?

    That's really old history, could actually be towed by horses.

    Is it safer to wear seatbelts, or not?

    That's a good observation. I was watching the Ice Road Truckers, and you see these people jumping and being jostled around the cab on those bad roads. I think they are driving without seat belts as well and was wondering about that. Being thrown through the cab is not actually the best form of...

    First, MTVR and your brother and al other LEOs and first line support people here, certainly in this times: :not worthy:. Forget about the words in the smiley, just see the bow: thanks to all of you for the very hard and difficult work you do under emotionally circumstances. In Europe, we...

    Is it safer to wear seatbelts, or not?

    Does a MWO applied to all trucks of that type makes it as of that moment, legally at least, an OEM issue? I would say that it is something similar to a factory recall for private cars.

    Technical Manual (TM) MWO 9-2320-200-35-1 Modifying Working Order effective date 1 October 1988 and completion date is 30 November 1992. Modification of 2 1/2-Ton and 5-Ton vehicles. . My M51A2 got the seat belts while in the POMS depot in the Netherlands, in 1991.

    Is it safer to wear seatbelts, or not?

    Hit a concrete bridge part once in 1985, with 50 mph, something like an off-center frontal accident, on the driver side. Thought I could stretch out the hood and continue until I saw the front driver side. Front wheel was more or less folded against the cabin. I did not had anything apart from a...

    My awesome new PLATINUM motor oil!!!! Now my engine is making the bad noises.

    What surprises me is that an engine with that kind of damage runs at all, and with so little "damage noise". If a sleeve disintegrates like that, doesn't that mean that one cylinder is more or less wobbling free through the block, and the diesel mixture exploding directly into your block?
