This Oshkosh M1070 HET aka "Super Het" was rebuilt in 2008. Before I obtained her, she was a mess with 6 MTVR rims, a complete mix match of tire treads, and all had blown out side walls. Bumper was bent out, electrical issues, and no fuel caps so tainted fuel at the very least. Operational status was unknown and pitiful. I sorted out 99% of the issues on site and replaced the tires bringing her not just back to life but back to the road. The HET has been in high demand for appearances to the local American Legion outings, Medal of Honor Parade, and much more. The Mayor of Midlothian (local city) was impressed and shook my hand for honoring patriots with this machine. She's due to go on display for a local elementary Veterans Day outing next month.
"It's not about the miles-per-gallon, it's the smiles-per-gallon" as I like to say and it's well worth it!

Reference post 71 on lubrication: Hope you have a lube order so you don't forget anything. In addition to the aforementioned fitting on the bell crank for the air brake linkage there are grease points on the anchor pins for the brakes and many on the winch andn the winch driveshaft.

The Het is such a bizarre and unique machine when you look past the exterior. It was designed and purpose built for the role like no other truck before it. Counter steering rear axle, NBC sealed cab, and bunk beds to say the least! We have enough trouble keeping water out of our other MV cabs and this one basically gives you a 3 star stay at Oshkosh hotel. I felt it was deserving of a diecast model to put on the shelf in my office. (1:50 scale)
