    What state was the truck originally registered & titled in? Is this an out-of-state purchase, if so, was it from a state that would register it but not issue a title due to its age?

    Wheres all the folks using antifreeze in their tires ?????

    I used to but found that by doing so with steel wheels it really accelerated corrosion & rust inside…. And I live in a dry climate. I stopped doing it, switched to Goodyears on everything & don’t notice any difference any more.

    I recently picked up a couple of these at a local auction. The davits & hoist pieces are stored next to the carrier and secured with straight pins & R-clips. Hope this helps.

    Anyone know what the MRAP wheel part number is for aluminums for gov planet?

    20-inch wheels won’t fit on 920/916 front wheels as the valve stem doesn’t have enough clearance. It will require grinding the front drum down for the valve stem to clear. @simp5782 listed the wide flotation 22.5” wheels he runs on his in his 920 thread, otherwise 24.5” wheels generally fit...

    ISO fuel tank pickup tube size for m923A2

    Not right off hand, but a member here was selling replacements a while back… Mine had the solder joint break & the pickup tube was lying on the bottom of the tank. I took both to a local Parker-authorized hose shop & they brazed both for strength. Haven’t had any problems on the pickup side...

    WMO users in Ohio?

    The turbos will definitely help; your big issue will be visible smoke…running WMO will generate some. IIRC Utah allows around 20% opacity for exhaust, particularly up in the Wasatch Front with its inversion layers. Adjust the percentage of WMO added to your diesel for the desired exhaust...

    Pintle hitches on tanks and APCs

    Israelis use pintle hitches on their tanks to tow mobile bridges to cross obstacles, among other things. In Desert Storm a few tanks towed MICLIC mine-clearing trailers, the MICLIC system was pretty new at the time.
