    Manual Lockup Converter?

    Is it possible to put a switch or manually control converter lock up in these transmissions? I think part of the reason these trucks start having flywheel breakage issues is because of locked converter ESPECIALLY on the down shifts. I know mine can be a bit jarring on downshift now and then...

    NewStar PTO Install Tips!

    Installed a shiny new PTO on 'Bruiser' (931A2) this weekend. Let me help you...this was not fun but I have some tips that will help anyone else on their install. It is a tight fit, really tight. I've heard of people pulling/dropping the transmission to install PTO's on these trucks and I just...

    Pin-On 20,000lb Garwood

    Two years or so ago I purchased a full front winch set up from m16ty. Great unit, great seller! Time has come to fit it to the truck. I'm not a huge fan of how the bumper is set way out on the winch trucks...ANY of them, so wanted to make this easy to put on or off. The truck's four...
  4. spicergear works! (dump bed)

    Last summer I traded a buddy two hydraulic cylinders and rescued a beauty from him that he was going to make into a log splitter. Mounts were made up under bed and on the frame then the rear of frame hinged. The bulk of it was done. On my Palfinger crane, it originally had a hydraulic...

    No Start Help M931A2

    I ran my 931 last weekend pulling pine trees down and it worked great. I came up yesterday, hopped in, flipped the battery switch, it made it's typical couple of noises, flipped to run, then start and all it did was turn over with no start. This truck's 6CTA has ALWAYS started within about a...

    5 Ton Bridge Truck?!?

    A buddy of mine sent me this to come and look at. I thought at first it was a 5 ton bridge or something...then maybe a 10 ton cargo but the front axle doesn't look right for a 10 ton or the bolt pattern. Also has the 20,000lb Garwood so that says 5 ton to me as well. Guy says it's something like...

    6 Speed to 8 Speed Converstion!!!

    I converted the 6 speed transmission in my Unimog 406 into an 8 speed!!! It’s a bit of work, but not too bad…it basically goes like this: You have the transmission cover with the shifters that you move for gear selection and the corresponding internal top part of the shift linkage. Then you have...

    I finally Had Enough...

    I had a nice solid 5 hours to work on the M931 Monday and figured I'd swap out the big 1400x 20 that kept leaking and sat long enough on base to have the sidewalls be a concern. I rooted around and found the O-rings I ordered a while back so I was good to go there and started on the truck. Well...

    A couple more Mog vids

    One is massive log pull and the other is pretty impressive idea of the low center of gravity for a tall looking boxy truck.

    Mid 60's Mog Video

    These two videos are neat to watch showing the versatility of the Unimog trucks. Both videos are in German, but it doesn't matter if you speak it or not, just to watch the trucks do their thing is cool. :)

    An Amusing Unimog quote...

    Ran across this the other day thought it was pretty amusing... “Unimog is the cockroach of all purpose vehicles. When the last H1 Hummer has turned to dust, when the final Land Rover has rotted into topsoil, there will still be Unimogs roaming the planet. You can’t kill them, they go anywhere...

    6.2 Injector line question, helping friend

    Apparently this is leaking at the ferule nut. I received this picture and he thinks these may be cracks in the ferule. Any 6.2 experts have thoughts on this? Also, if it is cracked, anyone have any spare injector lines around? 1988-1996 6.2 - 6.5 is what a diesel parts page is saying injector...

    Of course I have to find a specific part on a pretty uncommon truck to seek out- (nothin's easy :grin: ) anyway on these 8x8 trucks, if they came equipped with a front winch they had a PTO on the Allison auto that drove to another PTO box that was frame mounted then to the winch from there...
