    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    Well, this is not actually about the truck itself but I did get a sixcon for fuel. It holds 900 gallons and bolts right to the 7 Ton bed with the ISO locks. So including the regular tank I could carry about 1,000 gallons of diesel. If I get about 6 miles per gallon, then I could drive about...

    I also fixed two blue air hoses that were cracked and leaking. I have no idea what they are for because the truck worked fine even though they were leaking. They are next to the power steering reservoir under the hood.

    I replaced the air hoses for the driver's air ride seat. I replaced the switch but the air hoses would pop off sometimes so I replaced them both with new.

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I was poking around the other day and I found an emissions sticker on the engine. GP says there is no emissions sticker so maybe this one is not "official". To be official, maybe it needs to list the amount of pollution or something. Anyway, if you are in a state were emissions are required, you...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I drove to the desert again to warm up the transmission and see if dumping some Seafoam Trans tune in will help with the transmission shifting. When I got back I thought I would check all the temps and then record them for others to check out. I am not saying these are normal but some people...

    Artisan, I found your post very condescending. Your attitude seems to be that you are right and I am wrong even though you know nothing about me, the situation, and did not ask me any questions. I am surprised that SS allows bulling like that. "That is an 80,000 lb rated towbar if I remember...

    Success! The seat moves forward and back now and my wife is happy. Also, thanks to Elijah95 for the tip about the seat height switch. Switching the hoses worked.

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I pulled my driver's seat. I was going to replace the air switch on the seat but when I looked underneath the seat, there are just 4 nuts holding it on. Well, in my case it was 3 because one was MIA. So I pulled it to see why it would not adjust forward and back. My wife has trouble driving the...

    MTVR, I have counted 37 so far. Which is strange because I watched the video from the Marines about greasing and they did not seem to find that many. I guess I should watch the video again and count this time. Ha!

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I found out what the access hatch behind the cab is for. I was going through and greasing everything and I could not get to the output shaft that goes into the transfer case. So I noticed that there was a panel right above the shaft so I took it off. This photo is looking down from behind...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I drove my 7 Ton out to the desert to get the tranny warmed up after changing the fluid. I wanted to get the transmission above 160 so I could be sure that the fluid was travelling through the cooler.

    I finally had time to mount the period-correct tow bar.

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I also took some time this week and fixed something that really bugged me. I did NOT like the back flap of the cargo cover always hanging down when I was trying to get into the bed of the truck. So I rigged up a system so I can pull up the back end of the cargo cover from the ground. If you look...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    A couple of weeks ago I was watching a video from a Marine camp and it showed the inside of a 7 Ton with the cargo cover on. It had the seats but also had the back rests in place. I had thought the back rests were only installed when the cargo cover was not on. So I checked the TM and saw that...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I straightened my front bumper. My front bumper was bent in on the driver's side like I have seen on many trucks on the GP auction. I decided to fix it by pulling on it with the tractor. That was a big mistake. Now I know why you guys don't like the aluminium bumpers. I was just idling in the...

    What have you done to your MTVR today?

    I detailed my truck this last weekend. It looks better but I was just as interested in treating it with chemicals to make it last longer. I am talking about the tires and the cargo cover. Now the tires and cargo cover look like NEW. The real advantage to me is that it stops the sun from...

    I have a suggestion. We can post summary things to this thread and then if somebody wants more information about the post, a new thread should be started with the details. Then we can find the detail thread much easier.
