    M1008 cracked head gaskets, runs fine, fix? Or engine swap?

    The rear right side of the right head. An issue as old as the engine. Too many of them have the problem. Looks like a systematic assembly problem. Propperly rebuilt engines do not have the problem any more. Wolf

    Adding oil to fuel of m35a2

    Hey, guys, years ago, when the low sulfor fuel came up, I had some problems with my injection pump on a Military K5 Blazer. So I asked the guyes of Daimler engine works and the Diesel freaks of John Deere in Mannheim as well. Both told me the same: To protect your injection pump add one...

    Decode these markings M715

    I think, a repro tail gate makes no sense. To my knowledge there are more tail gates / bodys available on the market than chassis of the M715. Wolf

    Tx 715

    TXFirefighter, your M715 in the pics has all standard rust due to poor rust preventation of the maker. However, to make you happy, I have seen trucks years bevor which are more rotten than yours. The base is not too bad for a 40+ year old M715. My truck is from 68 and I own it 32+ years with 2...

    715 wheels value

    Here such wheels go for about 50 Euro, depending on the condition of the rims. The rubber is overaged and therefore costs money to get it scraped, even if is is 3 Euro only. With good young rubber the price will be 75 to 100 Euro.

    715 found, worth it?

    Hey, if the drive train for the winch is complete and the winch works, the winch set useually costs arround 2500$. So without looking too deep into the quality of the truck and if it is as decriped, 5000 $ should be good enough for the truck. Consider the work you will have with the vehicle. The...

    M715 on tour to Pocking Germany

    The bow corners are the original ones of the M101, the set up is just raised by some 20 cm to fit to the M715 tarpoline deck. The M715 bow corners radius is larger. Also my M715 bow corners are the M101 radius. 1981 I had no other choise, no original bow corners in the far reach. The reason was...

    There are at least 5 registered M715 in Germany, 1 in Schweden, 1 in Belgium, may be 1 in France .

    Michelin 11.00x20 tire pressure

    TP Should be adjusted to your realy needs. For the correct pressure ask the Micheline tire technical manual, which should be some thing between 350 kPa(1500 lbs per tire) and 850 kPa (7000 lbs per tire), depending on the load. In sand and mud depending on speed this may be reduced to some 150 or...
