    Default First Deuce!

    Hey all,

    I've been on the forum for a little while and learned a lot. Wanted to let you know I picked up my first deuce this weekend! It's a 1987 AM General M35A2.

    After getting it home noticed that the high pressure fuel pump was leaking so that will be a project I need to research and try to fix I will be working on the registration/title this week as well.

    That is a good looking truck. It's an addiction, be careful or you will buy another.

    Don't make a move without the pubs: an operators manual, organizational maintenance manual and a lubrication order. There is a data plat on the right side of the dashboard that lists the relevant publications. Maintenance on these things is more intense that an automobile and you neglect it at your own peril. Grease is cheap: parts cost money. Be guided accordingly.

    It's going to be quite a summer, have fun!
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.
