    Oil & lubrication

    I have spent many hours researching oils and it is one of those things that is hard to get straight answers on. But to sum up my hours of research most oils are more than sufficient out of the bottle. Oils have progressed so far that even the cheaper ones are still good but the premiums just...

    M35A2 engine flush

    My opinion is there is no need to (flush) a engine unless you are trying to deal with a known issue. Like mentioned above atf does wonders on stuck hydraulic lifers but we have solid lifters so that is a non issue. I would say you will be better off changing your oil and filters on time and...

    Parking Brake Handle upgrading

    If I had a choice I would mount it back further that stupid handle will give you a enema if you are not careful.

    What have you done to your 10 ton this week?

    Pictures just do not do those justice without something beside it for scale. It is hard to realize how massive they really are.

    Rear Hub Service and How much Grease to use.

    Just be careful with how much extra grease you pump in because the back seal is just a dust cover and you can get so much grease in there that it will get on the brakes.

    Rear Hub Service and How much Grease to use.

    This is a highly debated topic from people saying fill them up to others saying you only need to pack the bearings and no more. Both sides have interesting arguments and I don’t know that either way is incorrect. The important part is that we regularly service the bearings so that we don’t...

    Which military truck is the most capable? Good survival vehicle?

    The 2.5 and 5 ton trucks are more capable than most people will ever need in most situations but just like any vehicle you need to have the right setup for different weather conditions. I personally have no desire to move a military truck in snow if it is still wearing ndt tires. But that...

    Does a GOVT rebuilt Multifuel in Crate need a Long Run in Procedure?

    I personally do not believe in running a engine in regardless of what fuel it runs on. I get a heat cycle or two on a fresh engine (just enough to get all the fluids checked and adjusted) then run it like you stole it. If a engine is going to fail I want to know right away not after I babied it...

    Oil thin and drippy

    So you don’t have milky oil and are not losing coolant so that can be eliminated you are not gaining or making oil and can not smell fuel in the oil. the safest thing would be send a oil sample to black stone labs and see what they find. is it possible that there is nothing wrong with your...
