    The bracket that mounts the high beam switch is M715, that plus the rubber connectors. The ignitor I just know from having worked on them. The casting is unique for the M715.

    Default G749 Troop seats

    It's raining G749's, nice truck. Thanks for posting the part numbers. The intake hose looks like a great replacement and we can add it to the Parts List.

    Here's a couple of pics of the seats. I'm sure I have better pics in the TM's so let us know if you need something else.

    Those pictures work great. I am sure I have two sets but I will pull them all out and take a picture of them.

    I am adding part numbers to the list as I go along. Will send out the updated copy very soon.

    The work on the truck continues. An injury set me back but I am back going again. I have drained and refilled the differentials, transfer case and winch. Everything has been greased and the air pack serviced.

    I have run into an issue on the shock absorbers and need some advice. The TM says to disconnect the link by taking off the nut and driving the pin out to allow the arm to move so you can refill it and bleed the air out. Is there a trick to getting the pin out? I have tried twisting it out and beating it out but can't get it to move. I didn't want to ruin it so I stopped and decided to ask for guidance.

    I had a chance to go through the hardware for the troop seats in the bed and it appears that I am missing 4 of the shorter pieces that go over the wheel wells. Here is a pic of what I found.

    There are also several extra pieces, but I am not sure if they are to the G749 series trucks or not. What do you guys think? Here is a pic of those.
    100_2105.jpg

    I also noticed that my tailgate is different from all of the others that I have seen. Has anyone seen one like this with the step built into the tailgate?

    Next thing on the list is fixing air leaks and getting the brakes working as they should. I discovered an air leak on the end of the air governor. I believe this is the diaphragm but I am not sure since I cannot find it in the TM. It is leaking around the bolts in the 11, 9 and 7 o'clock position. What do I need to do to fix this? Where do I find the parts and if taken apart, will it mess up the governor settings?

    Last question for now is about getting to the wheel cylinders. The TM has me confused. Section 239 (pg. 439-442) and section 240 (pg.443-444) talk about brake shoes and brake drums. Section 239 says you have to pull the axle shafts on the rear and hub drive flange on the front to get to things. Section 240 says remove the wheels and 18 studs securing the brake drum to the brake drum adapter to remove the drum.

    My question is, can I get to the wheel cylinders by just taking off a wheel and removing the brake drum or do I have to pull the axle shaft\drive flange to get to all of it?

    I'll give an opinion on the brakes. I would rather pull the shafts and remove the drums/hubs as one unit. You have a lot of room and it is very easy. You get to inspect the seals this way.

    Check out page 340 and 342 of TM 9-8024 and also X,Y and Z of figure 83 on page 126. It has to be removed as part of the process to fully drain the transmission.

    A torus is a shape like the outside crust of a donut. it is the torque converter in an automatic transmission.
