    Smoking engine

    Like most Diesel engines, it needs to be run, and run hard. This helps to "reseat" the rings on the pistons. If a Diesel is allowed to set for long periods of time the rings loosen up which will cause the engine to burn oil until the rings reseat themselves. So take your Deuce out for a good...

    Shifting techniques of experienced Deuce Drivers

    So your saying you were a "professional" truck driver , right ? Well I worked at IHC in Tukwilla WA. Then after they went bankrupt at other truck shops until working at the transit department. I'm an "ASE Certified Master Mechanic' or was until I retired. I was also a Sargeant in the U.S. Marine...

    Shifting techniques of experienced Deuce Drivers

    Did you go to the website I posted ? This is "EATON's" site. The manufacturer of the transmission. They say use the clutch ! Go to the site, look at the video's posted and then come back here and tell me why I'm wrong to say "use the clutch" . The "stories" or "MYTHS" about all the truckers...

    Shifting techniques of experienced Deuce Drivers

    Evidently you never took EATON/Fuller's advice on how to use their transmissions. No one said you needed to "double clutch" the Deuce transmission. Just use the clutch to shift.

    Shifting techniques of experienced Deuce Drivers

    If you have ever rebuilt these transmissions like I have, you would notice they are "not" your normal transmission. They have "3" shafts in them that are "timed" together for a reason. This allows the smooth shifting they are known for. But for all there upgrades the manufacturer still says you...

    Shifting techniques of experienced Deuce Drivers

    I've stayed out of this fray until now. "Cattlerepairman" and "Crf450x" are correct. A good tight transmission should "never" be driven by "floating the gears" . That is of course if you want to keep a tight transmission. If your goal is to get a good and "sloopy" transmission than go ahead and...

    Power steering conversion?

    So it was a 5 ton truck after all and not a Deuce. That makes sense. For awhile it had me going thinking someone had installed a Cummins in a Deuce.

    Power steering conversion?

    I didn't know you had so much experience with the Cummins M11 engines. I guess oil riggs must have a lot of them. Also the 939 or 800 series trucks don't use the Cummins M11 engine, which we were talking about here. Anyway, thought you were staying with the 5 tons and leaving the little Deuces...

    Power steering conversion?

    I have a complete set of "Half Moon" Snap-On wrenches and that "easy" top bolt is usually rusted in tight ! That wrench only allows a 1" amount of movement. Laying on your back trying to reach up and get those bolts off can be a challenge ! The air-compressor can also be a pain to get out too...

    Power steering conversion?

    The reason I mentioned it looks like a Cummins is it has the classic gear driven air-compressor that then has the injection pump driven off the compressor. Plus the valve cover makes it look like a "Cummins M11" . I worked on these engines at the transit dept for years. Those injection pumps are...

    That engine looks like a Cummins to me. What kind of truck is it ?

    Dual-circuit Hydromax brakes on M35A2, good air diagram needed.

    I'm not trying to start a war but give you good honest advice here. In all honestly, just putting the Rockwell axles under a good running 2 to 3 ton truck would "save" you a ton of money . I've seen it done several times now and the trucks came out great. Good brakes, good transmission, and a...

    Dual-circuit Hydromax brakes on M35A2, good air diagram needed.

    For someone who is going to use their truck on a regular basis and don't need a stock Deuce or even a military truck I would just buy a good running 2 to 3 ton truck and put the Rockwell axles under it. Save yourself a ton of money and grief.

    Will start only with a squirt of starting fluid. Runs great once started.

    I don't know why he just doesn't pressurize the fuel lines and find the leak or leaks that way. You will see and hear the fuel line leaking that way. Easy Peesy. Otherwise he could spend hours looking all over for that stupid leak.

    Read post #47 again. Yes there is a fuel leak.

    Injection pump reference

    I wrote a rebuild of the injection pump years ago showing all the parts. Here: www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/rebuilding-the-injection-pump.163387/

    Will start only with a squirt of starting fluid. Runs great once started.

    YES !!! Without it you will not be able to build pressure to fire off the engine. (It holds pressure against the injection pump) Once the engine starts it will produce enough pressure to continue to run. The Injection pumps "plunger" makes the high pressure, but with no fluid to pressurize...

    Don't overlook the fittings. A hair-line crack can really mess with you. Sometimes they don't open up until the fitting gets warm.

    Thanks Ahab ! It's nice to be appreciated. Now if my son would just listen to me ! He's off in Germany going to school right now under the student exchange program at Wake Forest. He knows everything there is to know now. Just ask him ! Here I thought it would be easy having a child in my...
