    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    I guess your setup would definitely put some sunshine on other drivers at night. For the headlight height issue, I have an idea in the works right now. My older M818 has more fender space for lights than yours, so my idea can work on my truck.

    Nuts in intake, brave squirrel!

    When I first got my 5 ton in 2016, I found a large mouse nest, and 2 dead mice in the air filter. The screen on the mushroom cap was damaged.

    Nuclear 5 tons.

    Reverse light switch M813

    Pretty much. I found a switch for a different military truck. The one I have on my truck uses the packard electrical connectors. I also used some Y connectors too. Pretty easy to do, took me about an hour to mount everything up.

    Reverse light switch M813

    You have to plumb a pressure switch into the air line for the reverse sprag. I don't know the part number for the switch, but it is a military part. Then run a wire from the stop light switch, that will be your hot wire. It will only come on when you turn on your stop lights and have air...

    Wait, do you mean to say that you drilled and tapped the torque rod bushings while they were still on the truck? I can see how that would not be fun. I had some serious rot on my all of mine so a replacement was necessary.

    NHC-250 PT Pump return line

    Does any one know what sizes and types the tube and fittings are on the return line that connects to the pt pump? This is on a M818, NHC-250 Cummins.
