    I think recksmilparts might have some of the new style. If you prefer the original style I have a set that I'd make you a good deal on. Just the mirror heads, no mounting arms.

    [QUOTE=1951M1078;1955424]Thanks MK.

    Its a runner but ?
    Bad or poor parking brakes ?
    Big hole in the roof. LOL Gun mount.
    Needs mirrors updated.
    We will see what other things when it gets here ?

    Good luck and I am still chasing down problems on my M1088. Wish I never sold my M915 as it never had so much crap too deal with.

    Replace the air brake check valves by the front bumper, there should be three of them. Rebuild the tractor protection valve. Upgrade the headlights to h4's. Get used to spending 30 min every time you stop someplace when driving it to explain how you got it. Buy bigger tools lol

    Sounds about right.

    With my M151 and the twin Browning, I had people ask me to pull over so they could look and take photos. LOL

    Change all gear oils in axles and hubs. Change out engine oil and filters plus fuel filters. Check change out coolant. Worry about headlights when you know the truck can even go down the road.

    Are any of the check valves leaking. Most of the simple check valves can be taken apart and cleaned as they are just springs and rubber over metal seats. Simple and easy to check. Your front hubs and the condition of your gear oils are to me more important to check I would think.
