    Default Got another one

    MN1028a1 that actually is in decent shape for the price. Only missing one alternator and batteries. Something else to play with as time permits. 480 mile round trip to recover yesterday.

    Looks really good. Is it a 1031 or 1028? The door says 1031 but pintle says 1028.

    M1028a1. Has np205 transfer case. According to serial number it's an M1031 although I thought all M1028a1s were converted M1031s anyway.

    Runs. Just needed batteries, alternator and wiring repair. Still 24v to boot. Nice to find a semi original one.

    3 years? Does it run? Biodiesel likes to gum up if not run every week. Diesel Mechanic in a Bottle works great to free a stuck pump, if the plungers are still free. Pop the pump cover, siphon out as much fuel as possible, replace with Diesel Mechanic in a Bottle and reassemble. Let it sit a few hours and it should free the metering valve.
