    The fuel filters (2) are readliy avalible at NAPA. Be sure to prime/bleed real good. give it 20 or thirty pumps after closing the bleed srcews. Be careful not to strip, aluminum housing.

    There is a full set of military and civi shop manuals in the TM section.

    Air to the diff locks can certainly leak if the hoses split, but the locking cylinders inside the axle can leak also. Leaked air goes into the rear/front axle, through the diff, up the torque tube, and exits out the transmission. Sometimes you can hear a bad leak by putting a hose/stethoscope in the dip stick hole of the tranny. Maybe I should spell that out..transmission.

    The cause is dry o-rings seals on the locker pistons. Part of normal maintenance is to flush lightweight oil through the hose/tube going to each axle's locker. That oil is then drained from the locker cylinder by removing a small plug in edge of the diff assembly. (not talking about the diff fill or drain plugs). This is in the 406 Unimog manuals, but I am not familiar with the SEE manual.

    Where: The flex hoses are located where the lines flex (not trying to be a smart A) and that's at the joint of the transmission to torque tubes on both front and rear. On my 406's, this tube is simply a braided rubber line with hose clamps. 1/4" rubber hose will fit but I have been replacing bad ones with single wire hydraulic hose. Single wire hose flexes just fine and will probably last a lifetime. (Easy to cut with abrasive wheel.)

    Wow! Bob... you're amazing... you have EIGHT UNIMOGS!! Daaaaayyyyymmm! It must be fun at your place!

    Thank you for the detailed input about the locking cylinders. I have seen the oil procedure in 406 handbook I have, and while the German to English translations are sometimes difficult to understand, your description of oiling those cylinders helped confirm what the handbook was saying. I am hot on the trail of reproduction 406 manuals out of Germany right now, but that will be a while. I DO have the complete set of US ARMY SEE service manuals that arrived today from Kandahar, complete, in four binders, all 2500 pages printed from the PDF manuals found online. Looks like I'll be opening them up tonight.

    Regarding the original 2 part Mercedes Unimog manual set: I bid on an English set on Ebay a couple weeks ago, and I threw down $350 to ensure I would get em' and all be **** if I wasn't out bid! I went through Gaggenau while last week for the Merex 25th anniversary, and Rene said Mercedes sold the rights to a German firm to reproduce the vintage manuals. The suggested price for the 406 manuals as he stated, was VERY reasonable: with shipping something like $150. This... for new manuals. Very nice to hear.

    Ok. Back to the regularly scheduled program...

    In America, it's pronounced Double Cab, not DOKA.

    Getting Kermit ready for the rally. Mounted the front winch and pintle hitch. Fabricating jump seats. Gonna have 10 gals of extra fuel,a Baofeng UV-5RE Plus and GRMRS. Ready for any rescues Kermit can help with. Will be hauling him on the M1061 behind Ken's M923A1.

    Would love to see some pictures of your winch and other mods. I have similar plans for my SEE when the standard implements are off.

    The channel is C8X11.5 or 2-1/4X8X30-1/2. The original bolts are just long enough for full thread coverage with out any lock or flat washers. The slots are to clear the gussets. Notice the right slot is deeper than the left. The assembly needs to be installed at an angle and slipped to the right to by pass the round bucket mounting thingy on the left. The cables run through where the front PTO would come through. There is a piece of garden hose around the positive cable in that area to prevent chafing. The ground is bolted to the chassis. The positive is directly connected to the battery. Keep in mind the pos cable is not fused. A short circuit could be catastrophic so route the cable carefully.

    There is a battery switch connected to the chassis and the negative terminal. The MOG battery disconnect isolates the ground. The additional switch is so the winch current doesn't go trough the MOG disconnected switch.

    Ther are some really nice winches for sale on the site.

    How do you like my winch installation tool? it's green to. My favorite color.

    Just got my SEE today, glad I found this thread and joined the group of 419 owners. I have other Unimog, but these units seem to be much more robust than the MB equivillents, etc. I am interested in getting ahold of some of the printed materials, or at least links to the PDF out there. I already have the operators manual on PDF , but sounds like there's service material out there too. Thanks for getting this thread started.

    The military Tm's and the full set of civi shop manuals can be found in the TM section under miscellaneous. You will be strongly encouraged to get acquainted with the site and go through the Tm's before asking for help. Having said that you will find that this site is much much more than just an Army truck enthusiast site. It is more like a group of BFF's. Excited to help in any way!
