    Fasttruck, thank you again.

    Spoke to White Owl today. I told him what me and Fasttruck figured out. Fasttruck he said he has been doing this longer than 40 year and still didn't know it either. But luckily he is going to ship me the plate. Thank you White Owl, was dreading the trip back.

    Any suggestions on the front axle vent. I've tried cleaning the valve and it moves freely, but I am still getting pressure built up in the axle. I have gear oil leaking out the passenger side axle seal.

    I am planning on doing a rebuild soon, boots are shot. But just trying to get by for now. I know the axle is building pressure because the fill plug popped off like a cork when I was taking it off. Oil has to be changed anyway, its milky.

    Any suggestions with the valve?

    I use a small nipple in the cover and run a piece of clear tubing up to a high spot and zip tie it .

    Gents, I am planning on getting a civilian 10 ton trailer to go behind my M51A2. I finally got all the bolts in the new pintle mount. Any suggestions on trailer plug in. The old plug in was cut (actually it looks like the bolts were snapped. Don't want to know what they were doing for that to happen). So I just have a bundle of wires.

    Just an update. Been hauling loads of sandy clay, 6 yards at a time, for my driveway. It was rutted up really bad from trucks trying to mud bog before I bought it. But the last load i picked up, the trackhoe operator had me park on a steep incline to get loaded up. When he was finished, I put her down in first gear high range and up the hill we went. Parked her and came back to pay the man. He stated that most trucks have to back up and get a rolling start to go up the hill. My response, low gears. She is not very fast, but she will get there.
