    Removing, rebuilding, reinstalling Hydraulic Head

    The governor will not go to wide open throttle ( WOT ) just because you pulled the shut down out to fast. Wide open throttle is caused by a sticking fuel control unit assembly. Happens when operators do not leave the shut down cable pulled out after they leave the truck. Then when they go to...

    Removing, rebuilding, reinstalling Hydraulic Head

    Never had one so stuck that it would not release. Maybe spray brake cleaner in the hole and spin the delivery valve. Maybe if you have the center bolt out of the top of the Head put some air to it and maybe it will pop out.

    Delivery valve. Yep pull it out and clean port and valve. Small screwdriver in the slot and it will rotate to get it loose.

    What have you done to your FMTV or LMTV today

    Happy fricking 4th. Got up early before it got to hot and pulled rear rear shaft on the 1088. My data plate has the extra D stamp but they did not balance my front or rear rear propeller shaft. O well what else is new with the former MV's as in got to check everything somebody else did. One...

    What have you done to your FMTV or LMTV today

    You say left it out. Looks like I see some of the thrust bearing and thrust washer. You think someone just did not put grease on both to make them stick to the hub on install?

    High pressure oil line

    Still wait on the line to come in but I stopped by Ring Power and picked up some O rings. Believe I got the correct one for the new line to governor fitting. Cat # 3J7354.

    8 MRAP wheel & tires Chambersburg PA to Knoxville TN

    I called them last week and then they were not quoting shipping cost because of the Cootie bug virus.

    Finished up my OFFROAD ONLY exhaust. Almost sounds like a real truck now.

    What have you done to your FMTV or LMTV today

    Had the front propeller shaft balanced and new U joints. Couple of tricks to make it go a little easer when by yourself. One is I use this cable master lock to hold up one end of the shaft because I do not have a helper. You can adjust it looser or tighter real quick to get the shaft level so...

    High pressure oil line

    Well as said I will sea soon. Also they are calling it a high pressure line but it seems like it only has to carry what ever the oil pressure of the motor is. As to what the oil line does would seem like it would be just like the Deuce IP engine oil to IP feed line. Just puts some oil on moving...

    High pressure oil line

    Agree no vibration on hose. Was wondering about oil flow too but it only feeds the governor / fuel pump area so I can not see it needing that much GPH and not that big of loss with hose. I will report back when it gets here.

    High pressure oil line

    Hope you get it figured out and thanks for the thread I just ordered one. For the money spent driving 80 mile round trip to the Hyd. shop in Ocala that I trust then buying all the fittings it was worth it to me to just click a couple of buttons. Little high on there shipping end to me but once...

    Interesting explanation of importance of driveshaft phasing

    OK see what you are saying and that makes cents. I told them how I found it out of phase and I just clocked it three splines one way to get it looking like it was in phase. Maybe as you said I did not hear him right but no matter what they should get it right. Another thing as said my data plate...

    Interesting explanation of importance of driveshaft phasing

    Well I did not know if it was 180* out from when it was balanced but learned something by removing it today. So looking at the shaft now that it is out my front was never balanced. So I took it to Ocala to the drive line shop and dropped it off. My data tag has the D stamp and the rears have...

    Interesting explanation of importance of driveshaft phasing

    Why they did not key the shaft with one bigger spline I will never know. Guess that is what we get from the lowest bidder. Heck the propeller shaft on my M37 is keyed. Yea repacking the inner bearings and setting up the lash is not a bad job. On my rears I capped off the hubs and removed the...
