Who is S/S? You might try Parker store for the elbow. Did you PM Smike740 . Then again he said he used the elbow from the rear wheel so you should be able to get that number if he doesn't respond. As to over the counter parts... the FMTV line of trucks is the most over the counter in US military history. Its just in here folk are stuck in Military Surplus mindset. Others on occasion discover the commercial equivalent we can use instead of NOS and pass that info on pretty often though.Ok I am all for adding the L or Elbow but the biggest question is where do you pick it up from. I dont think I can go to Auto zone and get it. I tried Fastenal and they dont have it, and neither does Case International. So I guess that is the 63 dollar question that no one has a answer for. If someone can give me a name of a company I will be proud to order one. I did write S/S for information and hope I will get a answer on Monday. Fingers crossed of course. I just wish when civilians design a truck for Military I wish they would buy locally. Just imagine a Army vehicle you can go to the parts store to get parts for. From Oil, and lubrication to hoses and Hydraulic line. What a great idea that would be.
didn't know what a shoulder nut was... so looked it up. Seems a shoulder nut is a "category" of nuts that is fairly broad in design. Once the shoulder gets longer it becomes a barrel nut.... sooo..... can you be more specific please.Hey just my 2c.... I have had several scenarios where kneeling valves start leaking. sometimes BADLY
...shoulder nut on other side, use some gasket cement or similar to seal under / in / around under blot head and shoulder nut and before tightening , give sealant a little time to set , replace modified cap and you are good to go .
can't remember if i used a 1/4" bolt and nut for sure , may have used some stray metric i had in parts box ?
