Right now I am using acorn nuts for a quick fix but eventually intend to go to a 'T' nut (the kind without prongs).
Might have to oversize the holes in the metal but should completely eliminate any chance of rubbing after
grinding off bolt's excess thread.
I, too, am looking for a couple of affordable solid wheels for my 9:00 x 20's to use on the front end of my deuce.
It's getting harder to find shops that will patch the lock ring wheels so we need spares at least for the front
until we find someone when on the road who will change...
Four of the six LDT-465 pistons have various sized grooves at the
lip of their cups. Anyone have an idea the cause of this? Is it
fixable or must piston be replaced? Seems injectors' spray is not
getting into cups properly. Is there a way to correct this?
Any ideas where I can get new...
Sometimes if the cork plug is missing or leaking rear end gear oil will get mixed in the wheel bearings and wash out the grease.
Make sure cork plug is OK and don't fill the rear end too full; maybe about an inch below fill hole. Also, check axle pressure relief
to make sure it is clear.
I mounted mine under the bed on left side on my M36A2. I felt the spare tire and pioneer rack aren't as important so removed them. I only carry the spare on long trips. Obviously, difficult choices are necessary. This may not work on M35's.
Great looking truck. I have a M36A2 in woodland camo with a tan top. Maybe
we could trade tops? Would rather have the woodland camo top but
couldn't find one so had to settle with the tan.
Are you interested? Any ideas to make it happen?
I leave mine plugged since I don't relish trying to put plug in when under water. BUT,
I do check it for accumulated oil which has not happened for more than a tablespoon.
If I think it starts to get too much oil in bell housing I will then leave plug out until
leak is fixed.
It looks like in some pictures that grease squeezes out back end and relief
valve shouldn't be necessary. With just the cap zerk installed and the plug
in the bottom I would think grease would work its way all around OK.
Sure could use the adjustment bridge, cover, etc. that goes in the G pump where
the fuel compensator plugged-in on the other type IP's. Please let me know if you
find this when you are rooting around for Elk1111.
