    M1031 PTO Governor Control - Factory Technical Manual

    Realize this is a very old post, but if anyone is still out there with the TMs for a 1031 SECM I’m in serious need of them. Purchased a near mint 1031 with a fresh 6.5. The governor worked couple times after I bought it but now is not. Everything looks ok inside the control box. But, without...

    M1031 PTO Gen.... Almost working.. Need some advice

    Would be awesome if he’s still selling them. If, by chance, you come across his contact info I’d love to reach out to him. I also saw another post from just a couple months ago mentioning a SS member named Doug that set up a controller for another member. I’ve inquired of that poster as well.

    M1031 Build Thread

    I’m super interested in getting one of these apecs controllers for a new M1031 that I’m trying to get working reliable as a farm service truck. Very slick, rust free, tight truck. Just 32,000 miles and with a fresh 6.5. But, the generator is not dependable. Sometimes works perfect. Sometimes...

    M1031 PTO Gen.... Almost working.. Need some advice

    Haha. Maybe fate working for me... Thanks for the lead. I will message him. But, looks kind of like B4Thundr has been pretty silent since about 2017. But, I’ll give it a try.

    M1031 PTO Gen.... Almost working.. Need some advice

    I realize this is an older post but hoping someone can lead me to some help on obtaining one of the mentioned, new controllers? I just recently bought a slick, rust free M1031 with 32,000 miles. Tight truck but the generator is not dependable. Sometimes works perfect. Sometimes won’t govern at...

    M1031 PTO Governor Control - Factory Technical Manual

    I realize this is an old post, but just bought a nice low miles / low hours M1031 and having trouble getting the governor to work. If you could email me the TMs that would be so helpful. My email is rossbartling@yahoo.com. 😊

    Critique possible new 151A1 for a Mutt newby?

    Thanks for the guidance there Setoyota. An A1 is what I thought I was buying anyway, but seller told me it was a 1967, not 62 so just started wondering. About the only thing it needs is wiring help. Harnesses are not in very good shape and I would really like to replace them all. So far, having...

    Here are a couple of pics from recovery. Setoyota, where do you think you see bondo and where are footman loops missing?

    Critique possible new 151A1 for a Mutt newby?

    Sorry for delay in posting some post recovery pics. Had an unlucky turn of events. Was just fixing to crawl under with a creeper to get ome under chassis pics (to show how remarkably solid and rust free it is) when I tripped, fell and broke my left arm: main bone up by shoulder. Kind of out of...

    Critique possible new 151A1 for a Mutt newby?

    Well, came home with her. It was, for the most part, about what it appeared to be. Mechanically, seems to be pretty good I think. It started and ran pretty well. Might need bit of carb adjustment. Oil and coolant looked good. It drove nicely. No drivetrain or suspension noises. Steering...

    Critique possible new 151A1 for a Mutt newby?

    Thanks to everyone for their comments and advice. I'll be going (with trailer) to look at it Friday. I'll crawl under and try to confirm whether it's been cut or not. But, unless I discover something structurally or mechanically contrary to how it has been represented, I will probably bring it...

    Critique possible new 151A1 for a Mutt newby?

    Have an opportunity to trade for what seller tells me is a 1967 Ford M151A1. Doesn't sound like he has owned that long and says he isn't sure if it was cut or not. I will go look at it next week but hoped to get you guys input first. I have and do own many MVs but have had no experience with...
