There's a power steering...cooler? That's interesting. There is nothing in front of my radiator. I have an M813, maybe you're thinking of a 939 series truck?Ajax MD check your power steering cooler in front of the rad had mine start to leak when it got cold, Tubing is a hard plastic . not pliable rubber, Got to -40 below zero and it just wouldnt seal all the way tightened the worm screw clamps, when it warmed up the little leak disappered
Thanks for the reply guys, it’s been parked for 8 years after working for 10 years in the woods staging trailers logging. It will run but it’s haggard. I didn’t think it’d be worth more than $500 as it was, but the guy is asking 5500 and there’s no way in my eyesReference post 8832: like post 8835 says: scrap. Does this thing run ? Is it titled ? Do you plan do anything more ambitious with it than being a yard truck ? It does not have a military fifth wheel, spare tire carrier is missing spare tire and parts, rear of cab is caved in, quantity of leaves in cab and under hood suggests it has been out of service for a long time. Front bumper non stock, fender caved in, wind shield broken, the list is long. If you want to throw enough time and money at it, you could make it as new. Back in the day we would have killed for a diesel tractor with winch

My M1010 had that insignia on the doors when I bought it from Goosecreek many years ago. Still does to this day although I no longer own it.No, it's my old reserve unit insignia from the MIUW warfare community. They are all disbanded now. A few folks have posted photos of their trucks that still have the old insignia on them.
Yup. As a reserve unit, we generally got "cast-offs" from active duty units. As long as we had enough vehicles to haul our TO&E, it didn't really matter what they were. Our deuces were friggin' ancient when I got there. GP canvas tents straight out of M*A*S*H with pot-belly, wood burning stoves for heat. Our sensor platforms were something out of a kid's toy Erector set.My M1010 had that insignia on the doors when I bought it from Goosecreek many years ago.
