    Locking fuel cap

    Nice addition to the truck. I want to add a locking cap to my M1078 but couldn’t see how the cam keeps the cap secure. How does the cap lock to the tank? I don’t see a flange on the filler neck for the cam to catch on? Thanks in advance for the info.

    driver door glass!!!

    I didn’t see anything in the TM. I first rolled down the window and then pulled out the rubber glass channel. I next drilled out the rivets holding the metal channel in and the screws at the bottom and then removed the metal channel Next unbolt the glass and pull up and out.

    How does CTIS valve attach to rim?

    A standard size schrader valve will screw directly into the end of the valve stem on the LMTV. The adapter you show is for a large bore valve stem which is not used on a LMTV. MRAP rims do have the bigger valve stem. The LMTV CTIS elbow will not fit these.

    How does CTIS valve attach to rim?

    As Coffey1 said first disconnect the hose at the joint closest to the elbow fitting and then unscrew CCW. The elbow seals to the valve stem with a small o ring.

    raise and lower cab

    This is all the further mine goes up as well, and my hydraulics are working fine. I believe the cab weight is over center at this point since the cab will not go down on it’s own until it lowered quite a bit from this point.
