    Fmtv crane maintenance manual, hydraulics specs?

    Sorry for the delay, there are several fitting sizes, I took some pics, got the paint off a couple to see the markings the other fittings are heavily painted, I can get wrench sizes if that helps, but I need specifics, there's hoses and fittings all over this thing.

    I can look at mine, I think the ones that connect to the truck are larger than that but between the sections I'm assuming is what you're talking about

    Any suggestions on snapped off brass fitting on brake can?

    I weld a nut to broken bolts, will work the same for the easy out.

    2 questions, batteries and tires

    Got the batteries hooked in parallel and charging, fingers crossed. Only had 1 set of jumpers handy so I used some wire I had on one set

    Pulled the 2 bad batteries, the side label lists them as AGM, just like wes said. The tie over between the 2 may have been loose even though the clamps were tight, perhaps thats why this pair went bad.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Yes, that's what I did, The job wasn't too bad after I made the press tool so I could maintain pressure on the drill in those weird spots

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Did this a while back actually, but finished adding safety plates to torque rod ends. Not the most fun, but not horrible after making that press. also separated my batteries, isolated 2 bad ones and am working on getting them back up to snuff hopefully

    Does it have to be a deep cycle battery? I have several regular batteries, I get the impression that a good battery will get the charger to activate whether its deep cycle or not.

    Thanks for all the input I definitely appreciate the knowledge and experience. Since they are agm according to simp (thanks) ill try the parallel charging method.. I'll just run the 2 in the mean time and go back to 4 if they resurrect.

    That's great news to hear, I'll have to educate myself on how to resurrect them, the repair function of the battery charger didn't do it.

    5 ton Ill check the connections, the recent charging and testing has been with the batteries separately on 12v chargers.

    Mine are maintenance free I don't think they're AGM, at least I didn't see it on the battery anywhere. I've had my genius 7200 set on 24 volt and had it maintaining the truck through the slave Port since I've owned it which has been a few years now

    Thanks, but I like the singles, I'm not looking to go to duals in the back, but Dual 395 would look pretty badass! There's a water truck on Instagram called tactical Nessie that I follow that has them and it looks pretty tough

    Thanks for the replies. I figured if the tires were getting too old I'd look for newer 395s. Mine look good, just the age was concerning me, for on road use anyway. What about running the 2 good military batteries for now, just removing the 2 bad ones?
