    M939 Hardtop

    Anyone have one or know where to find a hard top for not $3k ?? Kinda crazy they go for that much... I'd build one, would just rather spend that time working on something else. Thx

    New to me MV

    Hello all, I'm well acquainted with 5T things but recently got this. Haven't even looked under the hood yet, don't really need to. I can judge this little book by her cover. But, she was free and my wife loves it. So I'm fixing it. Naturally. First off, I need 1 tire, 7.00x15. If anyone has one...

    Desulfate.... or not... that is the question

    I just bought 2 new batteries for the 5T and knew (strong theory) this was the issue w my old batteries (about 4yrs old used probably total of 20times). But.... it had to be done. I will remember this for next time.

    5Ton Starter Help - Cummins 250

    Also, when I got it out, saw some wrench marks on the plunger shaft. Some rusty hammer marks on the top of the case too. So looks like it been a problem (I didn't do those.. they don't let me play with hammers).

    5Ton Starter Help - Cummins 250

    Thanks everyone for input. Got the solenoid out this morning and will be checking around for a replacement. I will probably contact you guys with starters, I think it would be a good idea to have a spare around. From what I read up on the PCBs, good to have a spare of that one too. Will PM...

    5Ton Starter Help - Cummins 250

    So I just went back out to do a little more looking. Opened the front of the starter solenoid and it looks pretty bad.. The inside contact of the + lug is melted and there is copper pellets in the solenoid housing. I suspected as much, for a week or so (about 4 months ago) I was lugging the...

    5Ton Starter Help - Cummins 250

    Thanks, I need to pull it. Have just been fiddling with it this afternoon. I was weighing that option.. wanted to see if anyone had a spare the wanted to sell. And, this starter has seen some high water.

    5Ton Starter Help - Cummins 250

    Hi guys, Does anyone have a starter for a m923(cummins 250) ? Mine gave up the ghost... Batteries are good, starter clicks sometimes, slow/no engagement most times. No voltage drop, so Im thinking its the solenoid. Questions/comments welcome. Thx!

    Why would someone buy this?

    Probably because people that don't know anything think , "...if 60hz is good, 400hz must be way better.."
