    Default What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Hopefully theres not a 5 ton thread like this already. I tried search, and did not find anything. I just changed my 1st flat on one of the rear inner duals, on my 818. What a workout! Now back to rebuilding the airpack!

    My 115 lb wife and I took the rt. front 250 lb tire off and put it in the pick up, new tube and put back on. She did most of the work. Replaced all filters, and fluids. Drained fuel system cleaned all the front lawn someone planted in my fuel tank, or so it looked. we did not put the lawn back in the tank. Then replaced the filter again and replaced the o-rings on the primer pump to get it to work good again. Lots more to do.

    Well lets see, I picked up my 925 a couple months ago and I have replaced the soft top with a hard top, completely stripped the troop seats off this includes all the metal associated with them stripped sanded and painted everything then re installed them. Put an new tach cable on the truck, re-routed an air line that was sitting on the drive shaft to the hydraulic pump, have taken all the tires/wheels off and sanded and repainted, changed all the diff fluids, replaced the abspestos gasket between the muffler and the stack and now waiting for my refurbished seats to come back, Yes I have been busy!

    Here is a picture of her getting into the M923A1 and one I took of her at the house, so you can see how much fun we have working together, nothing like her shirt and my truck matching.
