    Deuce Tire Chains

    Always seemed to be raining or snowing when we left the hard road and stopped to chain up in Germany. We were frozen by the time we were finished but hey, at least I had an unheated canvas-topped deuce cab to get back into. Don't miss chains at all.

    Battery group number for M35A2

    Modern batteries can be stored on concrete. It was older batteries with asphalt based cases that would drain if placed on concrete.

    ATF mixed with diesel

    Here in WV the DOT runs random fuel checks to catch guys running off-road diesel. ATF is red and might tint the fuel to look like off-road. Big fines here for that. I know a guy running ps fluid in all his trucks and equipment with no problems. 1 qt to 100 gallons is his mix.

    Steering wheel straight?

    I don't know how easy it is to remove the steering wheel but here's how I get the quick-release wheel straight on my race car. It's very simple. On even ground just back up 10-20 feet and the wheel will self center. Just rotate wheel on spline to get it where you want.

    Dennis at Richmond-Super Job

    My first GL pickup at Richmond went smooth as silk. Dennis had my 2 M105 trailers loaded onto my flatbed trailer in 15 minutes after arriving. I brought jacks, blocks, winches, etc. expecting to load them myself so when he rolled in with the forklift it was a very pleasant surprise. Total...

    What's the advantage of 24volt system?

    48 volt technology was going to be the future of automotive electrical systems. It is designed to use electric motors to drive the peripheral systems (ac,ps,alt,etc) instead of belt drive. This would allow the various systems to be placed throughout the engine compartment and not have to be...

    Anyone know direct phone number to Richmond GL

    My EUC was approved in less than 2 weeks after it was sent to Battle Creek. I thought I was going to breeze through my first GL pickup.

    Military "Cattle-Cars"

When the truck stopped the DS stood in the middle of the exit and told us all to get out and that we'd better not touch him doing it. We also rode them to the ranges quite...
