    M35A2 Transmission Fluid Change

    I had 40 nd in my last deuce for a month or so. It shifted fine but when I went to 90w mineral gear oil it felt like the gears were a little more cushioned if that makes sense. I could feel the gears less through the shifter. Just my observation.

    Rear hub oil leak

    I have done all 4 rear hubs over the span of a few months due to leaks. The first one I replaced the cork and both seals, the rest just got the cork replaced. Upon inspection it looks like the cork is the main culprit. Also if your bearing nut is too loose it could also cause a leak. As for...

    Rims and tires

    Im a little confused. Are you talking about mounting a 17" tire on the 12 bolt 16.5" wheel?

    Looking at a Deuce, Has Some Issues

    It depends how mechanical you are. If you plan on driving it on the road you need to fix the brakes. The rears should lock up on a dirt road with not too much effort. Good luck.

    Inspect your MV's....

    I had loose u joint drive shaft bolts on both m35a2's and loose half shaft bolts on my m998. Definitely good advice to do a complete inspection before you go haulin down the road.

    New guy, Punta Gorda, Florida

    I was just thinking yesterday that a deuce is not a hot weather vehicle. And that was around 80 degrees. Welcome to the hobby from Maryland.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Changed my fuel filters for the first time in 22 years if I’m reading the date code correctly. Funny thing is that it ran good before the change. The only difference I notice is a higher idle, little higher egts, and maybe a little more power. Sounds better too.

    What is this - Seat from WWII Bomber?

    In my limited research I found similar style seats from ww2 bombers. The ones Found for sale go for quite a bit and most didnt have cushions. Looks like a good find. Would look good in my family room. Hope you are able to make a positive id.

    1952 studebaker please help

    Good deduction. If I had the space I would feel compelled to drag it home and see if I could get it running. But most likely its good for parts at best.

    M936 Hydraulics - or - How Fast Can An Old Fat Man Move!?

    Ugh. I used to hate blown hyd hoses when i was doing equipment work. Always a pita to clean up. Well at least you found a good place to dry your socks.

    I went back and bought the truck

    The small solar panel is a charger/desulfator. There should be a small black box connected to it and my guess is that it says solargizer on it. Mine works great and always keeps the batteries topped off. There are 2 types of brake adjustments on these. One is very simple and is most likely all...

    Charging issues with New alternator

    If it's not your exciter wire it could be your voltage regulator. Thats the back plate held on by, I think 6 small screws. After going through 3 mil altrmators on 2 trucks I swapped both to Delco 21si 24v alternators for about $100 each. No problems since. You will need very minor modifications...

    Electrical problem

    Sounds like your starter switch or starter solenoid is stuck on. Disconnect batteries and check continuity. Check between terminals on switch and between the large terminals on the solenoid.
