The air tanks could stay there. I ran dual 915a1 tanks on my m923. It would go along way. I will probably just mount a 55gal that will draw 50gal from a 931. Then a toolbox above it. Not sure yet.Have you thought about mounting a second fuel tank where the battery box is now?
I have one I want to put on my M920, but I need to relocate the batteries, air tank and move the exhaust to make it work.
There actually isnt enough room unless you relocate the exhaust as well. The tank would be well past the exhaust even with it up against the cab mount setup.There isn't enough room to put two Air tanks above the fuel tank on the passenger side when using the big round tank. Definitely would be using the smaller square tank though.
I like the look of dual round tanks.
And 236 gallons is nothing to sneeze at!

You are correct, the exhaust has to move back further to clear the back of the tank.There actually isnt enough room unless you relocate the exhaust as well. The tank would be well past the exhaust even with it up against the cab mount setup.
I liked the dual tanks on my 923 cause i could get cheap fuel in TN and make it to Mass or NH where its cheaper. Fuel up and be able to get down south again. Rather than expensive new york and Pennsylvania fuel. PA is around 60 cents higher a gal than everywhere elseI don't know about you guys but I am LOOKING for reasons to stop for fuel after 8 hours behind the wheel of a 915.
I confess to not knowing much:Was wrong in the turbo. Engine had a T46 turbo which is a 360hp unit according to the numbers on it rather than the usual 4LHR. Swapped on an HT3B i had laying around NIB. Removed the stock oil return crap and went with easier stuff to replace.
Big cams generally have HT3B or equivalent. Like an HT60 that comes on the N14 engines. H3b can handle up to 600hp . Most military units are detuned with like an HT46 or ST50 so it moves less air for less power.I confess to not knowing much:
- So the turbo you had worked fine (or, "god enough"), but a real match (of turbo-to-engine) is what should be done
Is that for peak performance? Fuel efficiency? Any other reason?
I actually found one off an HT740 with a pump for $750 from a truck yard. 740 from a 916A1 915A2 and 754 from the 915a1 are the same transmission just one starts in 2nd gear. I assume it would work perhaps? It is an air shift unit as well.I searched for months to find a PTO, could only find a new one from Chelsea - # 272XAAJP-A5RK That is an air shift unit to fit on the 6 bolt opening on the drivers side. It lists for 2200 and you need an oil fitting as well #378897
Needed the stronger winch for the folding gooseneck similar to the 870. The 5 ton winch even double lined would have not liked it. Gotta drill a few frame holes and modify the drivers side frame rail bracket for that.
Local fastener shop carries them. They are good quality drill bits. Little pricey though. A frame reamer in 5/8" will cost around $40. The one i have had for over 2yrs and its probably done 30 holes in frames or moreI never ran into "frame reamer" bits before.
A good item to know about.
Where do you pick them up?
