    I picked up the cargo canvas today. It was in better shape than what I was expecting. A little dusty from indoor storage, but will clean up fine. That is the end curtain folded up in the background.

    I am not entirely sure this is for the G749 series, but it sure looks really close and the dimensions seem right. The thing that is throwing me off is the front end curtain is not a separate piece. Does anyone know what this may go to? I have tried looking up the cargo cover for several trucks but do not see any exactly like this. This cover is made this way and has not been modified.

    The front axle rubber brake hoses have been replaced and part numbers added to the list. After about an hour of searching through parts books, there was no hose exactly like what was originally on the truck, so we had to improvise. We ordered the hose (part number H4900) and a fitting (part number 258540) , then added a washer, toothed lock washer and nut to complete.

    And the finished product.

    The rubber grommet that is on the shield that the hose goes through came in an assortment pack. Everything is hooked up and no leaks except for the previously mentioned wheel cylinders. I'm happy with how the improvising turned out.

    I guess the canvas is correct then. I will hopefully have a set of bows by the end of the week. They are a set of all metal bows off of an M35 but I think I can modify them to work. I know they are not correct, but I thought they would be more sturdy, plus no one will really be looking at those.

    Has anyone ever tried to dye their faded canvas? I read about the old original military canvas sealer having dye in it but I can't find any anywhere. I did get some Canvak and was thinking about adding some olive drab colored Rit Dye to it to see what happens in a not so noticeable spot on my cab canvas.

    Does anyone know where to find a power piston assembly for the M54/800 series trucks AirPak?

    This thread mentions it when rebuilding an AirPak.
    http://www.steelsoldiers.com/showthr...AirPak-rebuild

    I cannot seem to find one online but maybe I am not typing in the right word combination. The reason I am asking is I would like to rebuild both of the AirPak that I have for my M135 at some point in the near future. If no one sells just the power piston assembly, I would like to see if someone would lend one to me to get the measurements off of. I am currently in school to be a machinist and would like to try to make some of these so we can use the rebuild kit mentioned in the above thread.

    Default G749 Transmission Cooler Cover Gasket

    I have been cleaning the sludge out of my transmission cooler today and just made a gasket for the cover. Here is a scanned copy if anyone needs it.

    You're all over that truck man....and under it......and going to the correct school. My Landscaping certificate does not help when I work on my truck other than helping me understand 'green side up'. Tried running some gasket material through the printer but it just kept jamming up so guess we'll just have to print off about 20 sheets of your gasket so they're thick enough to glue on. Amazing time to be a machinist because it's not just lathe's, breaks and water-jets but lasers, robots and 3D printers. You'll be able to print me a new printer with your 3d printer, water-jet laser.
    The air-pak kit that I have came from Tower Park and it's a complete kit. It can't be the last one out there. The 4 1/2" X 8"X 2" high, white box is labelled AIR PACK KIT Q'TY ; 1EA...... The Piston 7376692 Spring 7376741 and Ring 7376724 are bagged together. If we can get the old kids checking their barns again maybe we can still find some.

    Not sure if the G749 Veterans that used the 800 series parts would still have their source but I searched a few part numbers....

    http://haystack.ihs.com/partnumber/6277260
    http://www.iaircraftparts.com/253001...e-command.html

    I'll PM you with some other info.

    You're doing a great restoration job! I love my M35 and M49, but I really miss my XM211 - should never have sold it.

    The last few days has allowed me to do some more work on my truck. I have been working on flushing the cooling system and am about done with that. The floor pan was pulled so I could get to the top of the transmission to check the front band. The pin was a little high, but is down to where it needs to be now.

    While the pan is off, I power washed the top of the transmission and found this data plate on the passenger side of it. It shows the transmission is 5 years newer than the arsenal overhaul tag shows. Hopefully that means the transmission has less than the 7300 miles the truck has on it since overhaul.

    Yesterday evening, I was able to get free to go get the bow set I mentioned earlier. Hopefully I can modify the metal bows to work.

    I have a question for those of you that are more familiar with these trucks. I have noticed that I can hear a series of clicking sounds coming from the Generator-Regulator that is pictured on page 286 of the TM. Usually it is a fast click...click...click sound that happens here and there and in no particular pattern as to when it happens. Is this normal or is there a problem?

    Hey,

    saw yer comment about cleaning out the tranny cooler...

    be advised- the ENTIRE cooling system could be seriously clogged. I had to pop out the frost plugs and pressure wash the cooling jacket on the motor as well as a heap of other work to clear out all the coolant passages (there are ALOT)
