    Cylinder Liner broken pieces in oil pan

    Very sorry to hear that... From what I remember, seems most agree that it's better to just replace the engine, as little bits may have been pumped through the oil and can find their way into other components, as well as the unknown mechanical stresses that other components may have been exposed...

    Don't have experience with that one, I'd give the folks in the second link a call and ask them (gpopshop)

    This is what you need for the Schwitzer "Whistler"... https://www.ebay.com/itm/MELETT-TURBOCHARGER-TURBO-REBUILD-REPAIR-KIT-FOR-SCHWITZER-3LD-UNIVERSAL-DAF/252442858328?epid=1575337808&hash=item3ac6c45358:g:UBMAAOSw9CJc73bh (Poland) or... https://gpopshop.com/product-3ldkit.html Used to get...

    Deuce Brakes

    And, IIRC, if the Master Cylinder rod doesn't have enough free play travel, then it can't vent the pressure when the brakes are released, through that little hole, back into the reservoir.

    Pulling front hub problem

    Wow! that seems odd. If you've tried the spaced-out cap with all 6 bolts torqued to 75'lbs+ and it's not moving, maybe try tapping the bearing, where the nut makes contact, with a punch to see if that will loosen it up. I've seen on other vehicles where the brake shoes wore a trough into the...

    Check my post again if that doesn't work, I added a few more ideas.

    Pulling front hub problem

    If you're sure the drum spins freely and isn't hanging up on the shoes (in which case you'd want to back the shoes off) try putting something down inside the spline cap, like a nut or two, so the nut(s) would hit the end of the spindle shaft before the cap flange contacted the drum, then use the...

    Hard Fuel Line Leak at Hydraulic Head

    It'll seem pretty obvious when you're doing it, but it's easier if you revove the lines from front (toward the L. fender) to back (toward the engine) and reinstall in reverse order. An 11/16 flare nut wrench can be very helpful to remove/install the line nuts without rounding them (I've got a...

    Making a deuce a reliable daily driver? Help make a to-do list?

    I've seen lots of new parts that were bad right out of the box... Could y'all explain to me how a used wheel bearing that's properly packed, geometrically correct, shows no sign of heat, galling, etc., just "fails" all of a sudden? And how is the out-of-the-box, yet to be field tested, new...

    Making a deuce a reliable daily driver? Help make a to-do list?

    Can't remember who said it, maybe M35 Tom, but the point was made that you've got to thoroughly PMCS the truck in a way that you lay your hands and eyes on every single inch of the truck, every light socket, every contact, every inch of line, check every bearing, seal, spring and fastener...

    M35a2 head gasket blown concerns

    Kinda puttin the cart before the horse, with a bunch of vagueries... Multifuels, with their 22:1 compression ratio, are known to be hard on head gaskets, especially the old-style weep-tab type. Could just be you had an old set of gaskets that just reached the end of their lifecycle. Make sure to...

    Uh oh! Confirm my fears or lift my spirits

    Sorry to hear that. While you've got everything apart it's much easier and a great time to do some not-so-expensive things like a flame-heater delete, modern starter, getting yourself a $100 pop-tester and tuning the injectors (link to the needed adapter here...

    Uh oh! Confirm my fears or lift my spirits

    Looks just like mine did before I replaced the head gaskets, which is the same way lots and lots of otherwise perfectly functioning multifuels do. Taken from one of my recent posts... "This is often called "wetting the block". Multifuels are known for doing this, lotsa folks drive deuces that...
