    suitable battery replacement for M1088

    I have an M923 and have been using the biggest batter W-mart sells for the Dodge diesels. Sorry don't remember the group number and can't go look now. But they are around 120 and have a full 3 year replacement warranty. When I first got the truck, went with new Interstate 6TL's, about 240...

    M939 Air pressure switch

    Question, my low air pressure light is not coming on, parking brake light is staying on and no alarm sounding even on start up. Gauges read 120 after air up. Thoughts please. This is a 1984 M923 I did wiggle wires to the alarm with no difference and no loose ground.

    PNW Info Thread!

    I agree, but we can't let logic get in the way of making rulings over the ruled class. What about the Kenworths and Peterbilts? If logic meant anything to this discussion we would not be having it. What I am hoping, in the way they wrote the rule last time, it lumped military vehicles under...

    PNW Info Thread!

    Did have that meeting with Rep. Orcutt, last week. This is not high on their list, but he would support this. He said that he had a brief conversation with DOL and their concern is the crash worthiness of our vehicles, not meeting crumple standards. I asked how many crash incidents with the...

    I don't think the Humvee issue is a problem with this. This bill had bipartisan support, but it was a busy session and my guess is that they didn't get much cheer leading from our side. Since we know about it this time that should make a difference. One of the issues that I have had with...

    Sorry, don't know who it went to, but I heard about it after it died in committee. You might que up your Rep. that this is coming again. I will be talking with Rep. Ed Orcutt on this issue 19 DEC. He has seen my vehicles in multiple parades and knows what we do with them. This time we will...

    Do you need a runner or are you ready to do some work on it? Also am having a meeting with a State Rep on this issue of MV licensing on 19 DEC. There was a bill ran in the last legislative session, that seemed to be oriented towards Humvees. It had bipartisan support but did not come out of...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Ahab, did you catch a couple weeks ago a, special on the moon landing? Apparently 2 - 3 weeks before lift off, someone asked about a flag. No one had thought of that and placing a flag on the moon was against some International laws on sovereignty. The President was said to have told the...

    Pics of members rides in their parades

    We had about 14 vehicles in the parade yesterday. More pictures later. This was the first parade for the newly formed Lewis County WA chapter of the Young Marines. The Gamewardens of Vietnam were happy to help them out with a ride on their M931 that they tow the boat with.

    Didn't they use the flutter free flag on the moon? Or sound stage. :) But great idea.

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    So don't you value your vehicle for historical purposes? While not living in that state, everyone I own is an historical vehicle. It is sort of odd that for the minor amount of vehicles out there, they would exclude any of them from being purposed for business.
