Good ideas. I have done a test that, I think, rules out clogged piping. I installed a pressure gauge in the fill port of the front diff then drove around for several days. I would cycle the tires from HWY to XC to SAND and back and the CTIS worked as it should. No pressure ever showed up in the diff.Ok went thru the manuals again with one of the mechs. Axle vents appear to go into the ctis quick release system. If you have a clogged release valve maybe ctis air is making its way into the axle. A way to test this is to take out the top plug on the diff and air up the ctis then dump air and see if air is coming out of the plug hole. There are issues with the u-joints if there is more than .025" of end play then damage can occur or you can just throw a driveshaft or two. Wobbling driveshaft can prematurely wear pinion bearing and seal.
Do you have any pictures or video of your rescues?We have been using our LMTV to assist in water rescues here in MO but I was curious on what the military manual says on deep water fording in the LMTV. I have been all through the TM's and not much is mentioned except testing fan clutch switch. Anyone got any experience in using the LMTV in deep water? Deep is relative but so far we have kept it above the fan. With the fan clutch on should i see the fan stop moving? Thanks for the info, trying to set some limits on usage.
