    Why didn't they just use 24v glow plugs?

    doesn't it just seem simpler to have 24v glow plugs to meet the NATO 24v starting requirement instead of the problematic resistor setup? or.. was it a cost cutting measure? no 24v plugs at the time? I've already bypassed the resistor and moved supply to 12v..why shouldn't I just get 24v plugs...

    Trans issue (m1010)

    So, the M1010 that I sold my mom has developed a horrendous whine, even at idle... and she says it 'doesn't feel right' when coasting, and it actually died as she was driving it... Like she was giving it gas and it was going nowhere, but it was in drive and the engine didn't race like it was...

    I'm considering domiciling in Texas, and using my M934 as an RV. Being that TX requires a Class B to drive anything over 26k,but not a CDL if it's noncommercial, I'm curious if any of you guys have gotten a class A or B license because you have a 5 ton, or if you've taken your class A or B DL...

    I finally started working on my M934 interior..

    .... and I wanna cry. Basically needs an entirely new interior and new seals. I was gonna get a connex and mount it but chose against that due to insulation costs... Now it's looking like a cheaper option. The wall is bowed in some places (water swelling wood) and rotten in others. That...

    What's your best 'that was dumb' moment involving your 5 ton?

    Just curious. We've all had them, and I wanna hear what everyone else has done. I'll be humble and start... I picked up my 5 ton, and on the way back, I decided I should try the emergency shutoff, just in case... So when I went to park the truck and grab some food, I pulled the emergency...

    Calling all wheel/tire gods!

    I gotta admit, the options on wheels and tires are downright confusing... I've read a bunch of threads, and these tires go with these rims but not those rims and those rims can be used with that tire but only on that version and not this version, and this tire is great on this rim but don't use...

    Yay! Charging issues!

    Okay, I have a fun one. Ever since I purchased my m1031, at high RPM, the Gen 1 and Gen 2 lights like to dance. They kind of alternate glowing on and off, but never full on. I figured that they were on their way out, or I had a bad ground. As I do with all new vehicles, I clean off any grounds...
