    I checked the lo9-2320-209-12 (listed on my trucks dash) it is very in depth with grease points but after hours of checking and rechecking I never found the diff, transfer case, or transmission information aside from volumes. As for grease points I found the ujoints tend to suck if in the wrong...

    That is very true Mullaney. Most people in rebuild setups learn there trade and know it well but... That tends to be all they know. I have learned more working on my ownvehicles than be a part time shop assistant. (Aside from how nice power tools are) old me would have used a ratchet to brake...

    Makes sense about the replacement aspect. Like a buddy of mine working as a local fleet mechanic. He says if a part goes bad rather than service it he just replaces it. Where other mecbanics might service and rebuild. Just depends on the situation. Luckily from what I could tell (was hard as...

    Thank you for the info. Yeah I just looked at it like any of the standard trucks I have worked on and found them. The fill for the transfer case was in an oddball location in my opinion but used a light to verify what it was before using. The from diff was milky so i flushed it with fresh gear...

    I have all tms I could find downloaded related to operation tm9-2320-209-10, lube lo9-2320-209-12, maint. Tm9-2320-209-20, and parts tm9-2320-209-20p A lot of this stuff I am either having a hard time finding (the diff information) or must have missed/not remembered like brake psi. It really is...

    I see. I hadn't thought about that fact. Apparently even regular hydaulic brakes have a ton of psi but it doesn't seem like it when doing pedal based bleeding... Thanks for the info.

    My original issue was the fuel shutoff. I will look into this just in case but after ficing the fuel shut off she runs good. Just drive her 7 or 8 miles home yesterday from the mill she was at. Thanks for your reply. With all the "field" fixes I have heard of I think any issue could arise.

    That guide is awesome. Was actually just looking for that info. I can understand wanting to get away from hardline kits. I was wondering if I could use nylon airbrake line on the brake circuit. Considering dot 5 is non corrisive and non reactive. The pressure shouldn't be above that ove the air...

    Oh yeah. Brake lines. Wiring through out. Bearings. Seals. Some might have to take a back seat for a while though cause wood needs to be gotten...

    Home safe and sound. Tried crimping brake line but couldn't get it tight enough. Did all my gear oil. Front diff was milk very rear has metal in it. Felt like someone dropped a bolt into it. Drove fine. Sounded good. Stopped fine with the ebrake/park brake.

    Once i ger it home I will remove that chunk of line. Order more dot5 because I can't get it on island... And some fittings and replace the line.

    Lol god no. Small island small towns and my house has a straight shot through with no stop signs. Unfortunately the mill it is on is about 7 miles out of town in the industrial subdivision so one stop sign to enter highway. Will have lead and tail cars with flashers and max speed will be 35...

    The rear is where the leak is. Looking at the line I don't think it would handle being crimped but I can try. I don't have any plugs for the T section that line comes out of. I am sadly aware of the atopping power of that brake. Luckily I would only have two stops both of with are low speed and...

    Did the fuel filters today. They where nasty. Looked like cork on the filters dissolved into sludge. Primed each filter with some marvel and fresh deisel. Then after the extra air was purged from each filter she fired up and ran nice again. Ran for 10-15 minutes to warm her up and see if any...

    So changed the oil today and started her up. Got busy with some jobs. Here is a video of startup. After the vid we added more brake fluid and started her up again. She died after a minute or so though and wouldn't start again. Drained fuel filters and seemed to be mostly water coming out. Tried...

    Just another update. Finally got the other pump so i can do the full lube service and... Now it is raining like crazy... May just have to crawl around in the mud. Don't have any plywood... Nor would I want to buy a piece just for that. Got my fuel gauge in so everything is here. Hoping to get...

    Ok thanks. I read through most all of the TMs a while back but i did skip some spots I didn't feel applied to me. Water fording probably being one of those as I don't recall it. Around here if you get to water you already went through a ton of trees and then down steep banks... There wasn't a...
