    Here is a picture of the shifter assembly I rebuilt, you can see the end of the plunger in the center to the left, the part the shifter hits against is hidden in the center. So what does this spring loaded plunger do ?, it prevents the shifter from moving the shift rail unless you lever that plunger out of the way, perhaps it's not reverse. My spring loaded plunger was stuck from a burr where the plunger sticks out, it's working correctly now.

    Sorry I mis-interpreted your earlier post.

    No problem NDT, this is how we learn, so is that plunger a reverse lock out ?

    Aloha again, didn’t want to start a new thread..... finally getting ready to move my ambulance to the house this weekend so I can put some work into it.

    Unfortunately, the tires on it are so old that moving it even a few feet results in large strips of tread to fall off. Because of this, I need to flatbed it to my house. Can I put regular 16” truck tires on stock wheels with inner tubes for the time being? Not in a position at the moment to afford correct tires, mostly because of outrageous shipping costs here to Maui.

    Sure I would. Technically you are not supposed to put tubes in tubeless tires but for what you are trying to do should be fine. Yes the 9.00-16s are very pricy now and surplus ones are ancient.

    Yep putting some regular 16" tires on for the time being to move around should be fine. If you plan on making it long term, you need to use radial tubes instead of the stock bias tubes otherwise the tubes can fail. I've had 36x16 Swamper radials with radial tubes on my M715 since 2004 without any problems.

    Good to hear, have Swampers too.

    Just curious, are there wheel adaptors somewhere out there available for fitting common 6 and 8 lug wheels?
