    M923A2 Cummins belts

    Ok. There's my answer! It has only one belt which is why only one is listed. I wrongly assumed it had several like the NHC250. Thank you!

    M923A2 Cummins belts

    Right. And no engine/power steering/alternator/etc.. belts listed. Well, on one line in the A2 section it says "6 CTA 8.3 Belt" without saying what that belt is.

    M923A2 Cummins belts

    So, this thread has a huge and great list of parts for 5 ton trucks.https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/5-ton-parts-quick-reference-spreadsheet.82404/ I just ordered a bunch of belts to have on hand for my M923A2 in case one breaks on the road so I'm not dead in the water. However, I realized...

    Tire age and cracks - Still safe or replace?

    What is it about the HEMTT rims that mitigate the tire rubbing issue on the front wheel without steering travel adjustments? Your truck looks great, BTW.

    Tire age and cracks - Still safe or replace?

    Ok, so I'm going to buy 7 tires (6 plus spare). I have seen a couple threads about the 16.00r20 having clearance/fit problems on the 5 ton . If I'm not transporting heavy loads (i.e. not causing suspension to sag down) will they fit without modification? I'll try to find some threads on the...

    Tire age and cracks - Still safe or replace?

    What is the rationale for changing to those sizes? Do they fit without clearance issues on the M923A2? Can I use the same wheels that I have? Thank you.

    Tire age and cracks - Still safe or replace?

    I am often at highway speeds which I suspect will dictate that you recommend replacement....I guess I am going to get some new tires. What type of business would have the equipment to put new tires on my rims AND have the expertise not to F up the CTIS system? Is dealing with the CTIS pretty...

    Tire age and cracks - Still safe or replace?

    The 14.00r20 Michelin XZL tires on my M923A2 are about 15 years old. They have 80+% tread. However, there are a number of small cracks in the side wall, presumably due to age, UV, etc. Are these tires safe to run or do they need to be replaced? (Note: The photos below are highly zoomed as you...

    I loaded my track Camaro in mine...I think this is a first in a 923A2.

    painting over carc

    It was about one week ago. I would say my lungs feel fine. Maybe I lucked out due to the fact that I did this outdoors with a little breeze and it was just 2 parts but it's just 2 parts. In the future I'll wear a respirator mask with filters

    painting over carc

    I was reading some older posts in this thread about hazards of stripping paint using physical methods (wire wheel, etc.) I recently stripped two bumper extensions which were in rough shape with multiple layers of paint but also rust in multiple places. I stripped them down outside using an angle...

    Paint Information (Codes and Sources)

    I apologize if these pictures show up too big on some screens but can anyone give me guidance as to which colors these are (with corresponding codes if possible? This is a 1991 BMY M923A2. I have an M105A3 trailer I want to paint the same color and also have for touch ups. Thank you!
