    Hey Rusty, Are there suitable tow chains other than the military ones I see around? Who makes them?

    Maybe this helps? https://blog.uscargocontrol.com/diff...ade-100-chain/

    In this day and age, I am not a fan of towing with a chain at all. I strongly suggest fabric straps. They are gentler on both vehicles and superior to a chain when it comes to weight vs strength. for example: https://www.acklandsgrainger.com/en/...0FT/p/ESN59700 .

    Had an awesome day off today with the Kaiser.

    -Unstuck the blower motor and vacuumed all of the rodent nests from the air ducts.
    -Tore the air horn solenoid apart, lubed it up, and was able to get the horns working after playing with the tuning screws.
    -Removed the door panels and greased the window regulators up so you can actually roll the windows up without snapping the handles off.
    -Found the wire harness for my coolant temp sensor melting on the back of the exhaust manifold so I repaired and re-routed it.
    -Powerwashed about 20 pounds of chipping paint off, and finally vacuumed the pine needles and dirt out of the cab.

    Feeling lucky with this $1500 dollar Deuce so far.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...7efbbd8b72.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...076262b20b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...e5167def98.jpg

    After a pressure wash and scrub with a brush it is ready for painting and will look like new! Good score!

    Since you are in Canada, and im just a few miles from the border near Eastport Idaho, as in snow and mud, Im sure you have mastered the technic of using straps to free stuck vehicles. Straps stretch and with the correct "jerk" (not me, the strap) they will pop a stuck vehicle that even weighs more.

    Steel Soldiers, do not loose your identity to modern times ! And I shall continue the tradition spoke of by VALLEY ROCK, by assembling my own , home made, towbar ! Why I even went a step further!

    AS you can see in image 1, I am using part of my M35 tow bar to connect to the rear of my prime mover, Image 2 show drilling other end of the tow bar piece ( now extension) to insert my chain and image 3 shows how I bolted the grade 70 chain inside the extension, Yes, I used a grade 8 fastener. More to continue when the rain stops

    Got my battery and no start issue sorted out this week. Also added in a much louder horn, mua ha ha.
    My retired detective father once told me..."Son always remember this, admit nothing, deny everything, demand proof."
