    Well, I’ve joined the MTVR club as well, bought a complete looking non runner and a wrecked one to be a parts truck. EUC filed on 7-31 and still waiting. We got one of the ones with the air filter cover off, but is laying in the floor of the cab and I can see the air intake and exhaust stacks are taped over with that silver foil tape. Lots of ideas of what’s really wrong and why it’s a non runner but who knows until it gets here and we start checking it out.

    Silver foil tape on intake and exhaust does not mean nothing is wrong with your truck. Research Mil-Std 3003(B). When we receive trucks, we prepare them for storage aboard MCLB Albany and Barstow and it's a standard practice. We do other stuff as well which is outlined in the Mil-Standard. There have been discussions about belts being removed, pulleys painted with primer, fuel tanks drained and fogged with oil, etc. Our job when receiving a used truck from the fleet is to preserve the integrity of the end item in the interest of it going to rebuild or turning around and being re-issued to the Fleet.

    It cost me $850 when my 5 ton broke down towing a m105. Landoll winched the truck and towed it 65 miles. Definitely not cheap
