    Personally Id call it a crane, not a wrecker, but either way, it is one of the slickest trucks I have ever seen, and I don't care who owns it or who built it. It is just overall a really nicely done truck. Well done Soni, I bet you never saw that truck taking over this thread, did ya?

    Keep us posted on the new build, but in your down time, tell us about the crane. Thanks.

    Soni, good to see you posting a build thread again. Sorry that darn remote never worked out. I would think some tool boxes might look nice on the new FEMTT

    Default Steering Setup

    Well.....The snow finally stopped and, to put the "icing on the cake", I got the box from Fedex that I have been waiting for.......so it's time to tackle the steering setup!

    As I mentioned earlier, I am keeping the steering box and all the linkage in it's original location. The M916-M920 trucks steer so nicely, going down the highway, that I don't want to risk messing that up!

    The problem I'm facing lays in the fact that the steering shaft from the Mk48, comes in from the front of the steering box, where as the input shaft of the stock steering box is facing aft.
    So after doing some research, my solution is a 1:1 ratio, parallel shaft gear box, made by Hub City Gear, the same company that makes the 90 degree, angle gear boxes, already used in the Mk48 cab. This will reverse the motion 180 degrees and will at the same time correct the rotation to feed in to the stock steering box from behind.

    Mounting the new gear box on a plate with slotted holes and on the same frame rail as the steering box, eliminates the need for any additional stub and slips.
    This will reduce the additional play in the stub shaft setup to only one extra set of gears.

    The pics show the new parallel gear box and some of the extra parts needed. Also, I got the front part of the stub shaft mocked up above the steering box, to fabricate the appropriate mount for the pillow bearing.

    More tomorrow.....

    Default Allison M916 + Mk48 Cab = 6x6 "FEMTT"

    So when you turn the steering wheel to the left, the tires will turn to the right? Just kidding, Soni. That is the kind of mistake I would make!

    If it's not a "state secret" what is the paint/code, for the paint you use on the truck in your avatar and, on your M123 crane truck? It looks pretty close to the Israeli sand-grey, that is a cool color.

    Lov'n this latest build, wish I had those skills, this thing is going to be awesome when finished, thanks for sharing how you do it.
    Life ain't fair, but it sure is Interesting!
