Really, these trucks can be push started with an automatic? That's awesome. These trucks seem harder to get to know then a m35, these have some many little secrets, no wonder they are the Cadillac of deuces. It was also recommended to me to back the brakes off. I was planning on pulling the diff side of the drive lines, securing them. Back the brake off. Obviously check the differentials for good clean fluid top off if necessary. It is mainly all back roads I can use to get home so I won't get in too big of a hurry.Disconnect all the drive shafts before flat towing a M211 / M135 more that 5 miles. Failure to do so will run the rear pump in the transmission and will cause the transmission to fail. (Was designed to allow the truck to be push started.)
I'm so excited for you buddy! I fought with the drive-shafts on my M211 to pull them...mind you it was minus 20, in the dark, in a snow storm....Make sure you've got big tools and a snipe pipe in-case you need some leverage. Take some liquid lube....spray it on,....soak and smoke...then remove. Always good to have a soldier B with you to bench-press them down. G749's always love attitude so take some of that with you too.Well it is done-Just picked up a M211 about 40 miles from me. I haven't exchanged money or title, but the owner said he would hold it for me, so I still could be jumping the gun. I am planning on retrieving it Tuesday, so pictures to follow! I owe USMC 00-08 the thanks for watching craigslist and letting me about it! Now just gotta get it home. I was actually thinking of using my m35 to tow it. I ordered a med tow bar for it. Any advice for me?
Measuring the m35 pins I came up with an average of .990". The openings on my bumper brackets were about .005-.010" larger, so they were pretty darn close tolerance I would say. Granted both had rust on them, and my caliper battery was dead so I measured the pin opening using the caliper and then used a micrometer to measure thatThat is probably what I would do. I wonder what the +/- tolerance on those pins are? I didn't have any to measure. In other words is a 1" pin really 1" or is it undersized to whatever to fit in a 1" hole?
