    Default M936? Is this the right forum?

    I purchased an M936 (sight unseen!!) in an auction today, sort of by accident. I knew that I wanted a 5-ton wrecker, although I don't know much about this particular truck (yet). I searched this forum for 936 and came up with no results. Is this the right forum for this truck?

    Specifically, I was going to ask how to put a regular trailer ball on the back of it to tow a regular civilian trailer? Also, I know it will need a fluid change and comb-through once it arrives. Anything to look for in particular?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Congrats for getting involved in such a (nice)"accident"... and welcome to Steel Soldiers!

    Yes, this is the correct sub-forum.

    Towbar/ clevis anchor shackles. That was a good rip off.

    Yes, correct forum. Everything you need to know is here on SS. I watched that one sell today. Drive shaft removed so plan to get it hauled and loaded. A few leaks as stated and likely bad fuel lines for the high idle rpm. Welcome to the club!

    Reference post 3: the vise is also missing. That's what the plate on the right side of the truck behind the bumper is for. I bought a vise once and a M 816 came with it. Download the operator's manual, organizational maintenance manual, parts book and lubrication order. There is a plate on the dashboard that lists the numbers. There are about 100 grease points on a wrecker: neglect them at your own peril. The lube order shows the grease points and identifies what products to put in the transmission and power steering. The winch cable is not wound up so you will have to figure out how the winch works to correct that. The picture in post 1 suggests at least some of the OVM is present. A wrecker comes with about 1000# of tools and accessories.

    Congrats on your purchase!!

    I just drug my new wrecker (M936a2) home from Delaware yesterday. The amount of tools and hiding spots on the 36s are crazy, I'm used to the 923 and 932 which had zero storage compared to this beast.

    Fuzzy, I'm hoping I didn't outbid you at the last minute!

    Where to get the tools and accessories that are missing? For example, a search of that vice NSN (5120-00-243-9072) comes back with a sales price of $1,168, and it isn't even green! I'm sure a bunch of this stuff is vehicle-specific (I already know how to get pipe wrenches). What's the best source?
