    Slow Down an M37

If the parade stoped, I Just pushed in the clutch. When the parade resumed, I just let out the clutch. I never had give it any gas...

    What do you build?

    I’d like to know more about your alt brackets for 900 series. I would like to add a 12 volt alternator to my Commins NCH250. Are you planning on selling these brackets?

    I’ve been using these Battery Tenders for years. I had my M37 for twenty years and replaced the batteries once. This truck sat most of the time but the batteries were always ready to start the truck. I have a 24v Battery Tender installed in my M934. It also has a 12 v tender for the 12 v system...

    If this truck runs and stops, why not drive it home? Seems like it would cost a lot less even with a few motel rooms along the way…

    Bertha is apparently jealous of the attention I'm giving the M37.(Torque bar separation)

    A friend of mine drilled and taped a hole in the center of rod that surrounds the rubber. He cut some "washers" out of 1/4" plate that covered the end of the bushing and bolted it on. If the rubber fails, the washer holds it all together. I've been thinking about doing mine this way. Edit: I may...

    Can't get the engine to idle

    When I bought my 934 it had sat in a lot for eight years. There was no water in the fuel but the truck ran bad. It could hardly pull itself up a mild grade. We dove it 1,000 miles home putting fuel additives in at every fill. By the time we got home it was flying up those hills. I would suggest...
