    Well today I wanted to fill the rear tires on my M185A3, but I had to pull it forward,
    The chain single connection stalled the engine
    The single cable winch connection stalled thwe engine too!
    So I connected with a snatch block for a dual cable winch pull, ( 10,000 X 2 = 20,000 of pull), and out it came! Turns out thec rearmost axle sank deep, so I was pulling this truckm out of a hole!

    I'm super glad we were able to find an Air Force truck that was this clean with dual brake circuits for the price we did. We got insanely lucky!

    Still kicking myself for not going the extra mile and buying the 818(?) 5 Ton multifuel wrecker he had too... Probably could've got the pair for 10k but we couldn't swing that much money for these trucks without pushing my Dad's wife over the edge. (We split the cost one our deuce) been one of our dreams for decades now! Luckily my wife was all for it! His, not so much.

    You're correct in questioning the M818 designation for a Multifuel Wrecker. The M818 is a straight diesel semi-tractor.

    Yeah I thought that sounded off. I got a new phone too so I couldn't pull up the picture of the data plate. The truck needed a little bit of work but would've been a good deal at 5k! Had a leaking brake system with an open just of Dot3 in the cab, so you know that got mixed in.... One of the lift cylinders had a leak, but seemed like it could just be repacked, cracked driver and passenger door glass but was otherwise completely rusted free. Cranked right up on the first hit of the starter but had a weird click once the air got to pressure. Guessing the pressure switch might've been the problem. Had literally all the tools to include the torch... Sigh

    Had to remove a few things so I can reach it, then had to re-position other things, so I can get a better wrench hold on it...after plenty of swearing and applying heat without burning up too many things under the dash, I finally got the faulty low pressure sensor off and a new one put in. Frustrating job. Glad it's done!

    First, the pictures. 1st is the antenna mount for the 2nd pic the 524. Above the 524 is the VIC 1 master control, the 1782. The VIC one has 4 stations, 2 forward and two aft. The driver doesn’t get a “talkie” headset, he only listens. His headset is connected to the 524. The 4 stations each have connections for the headsets. These are the “talkie” headsets. The power cord for the VIC 1 can be routed a couple ways. Either connected to the batteries directly or through the 524 radio mount. The circuit breaker is designed for use in an armored vehicle. Getting one to work with the VIC 1 is a bit of a challenge. I have the list of components that I’ll post once I find it again. Let me know your questions.

    I keep laughing at the "INT ACCENT" switch. I'm an old Navy Radioman and can't figure out what that is for. Does it apply a German or French accent to incoming and outgoing transmissions?

    Just a shout out to my good buddy Scar59 for hooking me up with a pair of new batteries for my Deuce. Getting them topped off and ready for service.
