    Tried to fire up the 5 ton after a few years

    Yes. I didn't realize they put gas engines in something that "modern".

    Crazy Canadians. Why does that have a gasser in it? Ever watch Zip ties and Bias plies on youtube. You kinda remind me of that guy.

    Is it just me or does it look like the rear is lowered to match the front? Also it looks like the tires are low tread.

    How long is too long to let sit!

    I try to take mine out and run it at least every month. Sometimes it stretches to two months. I try to run it kind of hard once up to temperature. Not ragging on it but not just putting around. Also keep the kill knob pulled out when parked, that way if your fuel shut off in the injector pump...

    m35a2 startup procedure question

    I had watched a video a while back of someone starting an m35a2. In the video the shutdown handle was in the out position. He cranked the engine with the handle still out for a second, then pushed the handle it and started the engine. Is there a reason to crank the engine with the handle out or...

    Dead Deuce

    That made me think of something. Since you push started it you didn't have the exciter voltage necessary to turn the generator on in the first place. If you had jumpstarted it the generator would have started charging. Oh well once batteries have been discharged that bad it's best to replace...

    Good looking 5 ton in Avengers: End Game

    Are there any more angles of that truck in the movie? I would like to see the paint scheme on it. This is mine I picked up about a year ago. There were 2 of them like this the other had an FPR number instead of FPS. I used to know which movie they were in but I don't recall right now.

    M35A2 - Diesel in oil, need advice/help

    Just so I understand the problem. The truck was leaking oil due to diesel leaking into the crankcase? Where was the oil/diesel coming from? How high was the oil level?

    GL-1 Gear Oil Alternative

    The reason I use gl-1 over gl-5 in my spicer transmission is because the manufacturer does not recommend the ep additives present in gl-5. These transmissions have had gl-5 in them for twenty years without any issues. That to me is proof enough that gl-5 is safe to use. Assuming yellow safe of...
