    Default What did you do to your deuce this week?

    My Sherman had a good week this week:

    1. re-bled the brakes and topped off the fluid
    2. my first oil change! $125 bucks later . The oil was in great shape though, no sludge and no shavings or metal pieces. The WMO was good enough I felt ok pouring it into the fuel tank.
    3. fixed a stripped-out bolt hole on the compressor. The rear, top left bolt on the casing (where the fuel line bracket attaches) stripped out a little while ago and it's been causing the engine to pick up a light film of oil everytime I drive it. It's been nagging at me for a while, but I have been holding off on the fix since I needed to remove the oil filter cannisters and I knew I had an oil change coming. I drilled and tapped it, and inserted a heli-coil. The operation went smoothly and appears to have fixed the issue. Whew! Feels a lot better know - I hate it when I have those nagging fixes in the back of my mind that I haven't gotten to yet.......
    4. Installed a pyro. I used the most common location (pre-turbo, right where the exhaust turns down). I installed the Aubern digital 24v pyro. With the air filter cannister removed, the access and installation was a snap. I drilled almost all the way through, then fired up the engine and drilled the rest and tapped it 1/8" NPT. I ran the wiring and fired the truck up and watched it work great .
    I still need to build a bracket to mount the gauge, once that's done I can get some baseline measurements and turn the fuel up. I have a suspicion that my fuel is low, and I have lots of overhead to get more power out of my engine. We'll see.....

    Sounds nice. In regards to the question in the title, I started mine! Hasn't been touched since the FL Rally in Feb.

    I fixed my horn earlier in the week. I changed the primary filter, bought some filter gaskets. I have spares if somebody needs some. Last night it got new rear axle seals. I adjusted the emergency brake......
    The five tons have dried up and are about gone, we have some deuce remains around, the military salvage yard is looking pretty empty these days!

    Good call - this is on my to-do list as well. It doesn't fully engage until the handle is pulled all the way to the top, I never feel like I get it all the way set. Did you adjust at the handle or at the drum?

    Put the cargo cover back on it and hooked it back up to my M105A2. Other than that just maintenance hours/miles from the winter.

    Drove yesterday for an hour. I blew out the vent line from the airpack and mc to the slobber tube. Turned up my regulator from 110 psi to 120 psi. Lubed the air horn. Checked return springs on brake, clutch, and parking brake. Wind out and wind in the winch cable.
