Hey all from Knoxville

Good evening all, sorry in advanced for such a long post, just wanted to pop in and finally say hello. Picked up my first MV last December. It is a quite unmolested 1969 m35a2 w/w air shift transfer. besides it being a untouched multi I have no clue which engine is in it due to the data plates screen print is gone it does have what I believe a 88 stamped where the manufacturer date would be and at the bottom stamped 3988055 I do know it is a d turbo. It did lol have a M1078 cargo cover Installed on it. The previous owner said it was bought through GL and was used for a youth retreat to transport people around the retreat grounds. It had sit for what the owner said for 7 years. We agreed on a price that I believe was a very reasonable 3500. Of course for the amount of hibernation she had been in, I trailered it back home from Chattanooga TN. Since then I’ve done a rough clean up and a through walk around inspecting what needed to be addressed. I have already knocked out a few task as in installing a remote reservoir for the brakes, went through all three axles replacing bearings, seals, wheel cylinders and shoes as needed and a fresh flush of dot 5. Going in a day to pick up new wheels and tires for it, changed all fluids and filters. Had the in tank pump stuck so I pulled it and dismantled the pump assay and cleaned it, the vanes were coated and plugged in a lacquer type coating, reassembled it and works like it should. I have a spare alternative Parker pump if need be. Got her titled and insured ready to put to work on the farm. Like all I have a rather longer list of things that need to be addressed but one thing at a time. Again sorry for the autobiography of this girl. Most of the pictures are of the day I picked her up except the last with the troop seats off, that was a few days ago. thanks all that have put into this amazing site. it has made my job so much easier in working on the truck. Ps green fever I believe spreads quicker than that nasty that’s going around now. I already see a m818 and 816 in my future for the farm to be put to use.
