    Strong batteries and an operational ether start assist will get it started. As for the fuel, add some Power Service winter additive just to be safe. As for the coolant, as long as the previous owner did not dilute/drain it you'll be good. Need to confirm the coolant asap upon delivery.
    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    Little ether and itll fire if the fuel system is in good shape. If its sucking any air itll be a pita to get it fired off.

    We're going to find out soon! I checked with the previous owner and he said it was 50/50. So it should be good! Around 5 below this morning...

    We got the old girl going this morning with the help of some heat! Around 15 below this morning. She definitely needs a bath sometime soon when it warms up! But she's home! ..Screenshot_20190107-173851_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20190107-120532_Messages.jpgScreenshot_20190107-120532_Messages.jpg

    For future reference that is a 923 not a 932 932 is a winch tractor. 6 ft shorter, 5th wheel plate and a winch. The 932 is a rare bird.

    Glad you got it home! I love the 939 series trucks. Be prepared to buy some bigger tools if you’ve never owned a 5-ton. A 3/4” drive sockets set, big impact gun, big jack, big jack stands, etc will make repairs easier and safer. Have fun!

    Yeah we have most of the stuff at our farm already but it never hurts to have extra! I know the weight plate on the truck itself says it will hold 10,000 pounds. But I plan on putting 16,000 pounds of raw sap in the back in a big tank. Got to make syrup when the sun shines!

    But I do have to replace a front seal of some kind before that I guess...

    I love true maple syrup. How many trees do you tap to get that much sap?
