    Converting Copper Air, Fuel, and Vacuum lines to DOT Nylon

    Not long after I got my truck, I decided I'd replace every bit of the age-and-vibration-subjected, crooked, crushed, kinked, dented, copper air and fuel line with DOT (Department of Transportation approved) nylon tubing other than the 2 exceptions listed below*. THE 2 EXCEPTIONS... *1. The air...

    Reflectors for our truck beds...

    Just an FYI... I've found the NOS mil surp red reflectors to be crap... They have no manufacturer's or approval markings, and they haze over and fade badly within a few years of exposure. If you need to replace just the RED reflector inserts on your truck bed, I suggest you just buy these...

    Oil Pressure Regulator/Spin-on filters problem solved.

    Posting this just for reference in case anyone else winds up having a similar problem... Short version is; Seems a bad regulator was allowing high spikes in pressure, damaging spin-on filters, and causing long oil pressure build times on cold starts. I have the Jatonka spin-on oil filter...

    Door Latch Spring Replacement

    Broken Door Latch Spring Replacement Forgot to mention in the vid that you'll need to remove the OUTER door handle as well as the inner handle to remove the latch assembly... Made this on the fly while fixing a broken door latch spring. The vid is a bit shaky and choppy, but I'm happy with the...

    Low air warning switch options

    Just got done "fixing" my old low air switch because it was leaking again. Last time it really was full of years-o-crud. This time it was clean inside, but the hex ring holding the contact/diaphragm came a little loose and caused the leak. It's very simple to work on, but I'd rather avoid the...

    How many Multifuels have been ruined because of... I've read posts on SS from folks making generalized statements like "the Multifuel is a weak design" or "they'll ventilate the block without warning" but I don't recall reading anything stating definitively whythe engine is to blame... i.e. bad...

    Injector Pop-Tester Adapter for Deuce

    Injector Pop-Tester Adapter for the Deuce/Multifuel As many of us have found, it's tough, if not impossible, to find a pop-test adapter to fit the Multifuel injectors. This is due to the fact that Multifuel injectors have 1/2-20 female threads (uncommon for fuel injectors). From what I...

    Head Resurfacing

    I'm about to tackle heads gaskets on my deuce, and want to make sure my heads still have enough material left to have them resurfaced. TM says that the amount of material removed from past resurfacing will be stamped "on the front of the head, about 1/2" away from the gasket surface". Not sure...

    Michelin XZL Rotation Pattern

    Happy Tuesday everyone, I've got XZL 395's on my M35A2 bobber... on my other vehicles I normally rotate front tires directly to the back, and then criss-cross the backs up to the front. Is that how the XZL's should be rotated too? I've done a couple searches on the subject and haven't found...

    Lube foaming in Transmission

    Need some help from the Deuce Gurus please... The lube in my M275's 5-Speed Spicer is foaming. Not just a little, I'm talking some serious froth here. Subsequently, shifting seems to get tougher while driving as the lube gets churned, and then gets easier again when it sits (overnight) and has...

    A very personal question...Dipstick Length?

    How long is your dipstick... I just took delivery of my first MV, a bobbed M35A2. And it looks like it has way too much oil in the pan, 3-4" above the "FULL" line. Something else that puzzles me is that the dipstick has a brazed area below the threads, where the dipstick rod was folded back...

    How long to cool down after Short Trips...

    Regarding the M923A2, I've read that some folks claim it takes forever for their truck to warm up at idle. I know the manual says to let it warm up for at least 5 minutes. And, before shutting down, to let it cool for 5 minutes if the temp is above 200F. What's your real-world experience with...

    Bobbed M35A3, Reputable Fabricator/Vendor?

    Howdy, New to the forum. Got the bug to own a bobbed M35A3, but don't have the resources to do the work myself. Searching the web I see several folks who've offered the service to "Bob" a Deuce, but seems like most of the info is from a couple years ago. Does anyone still offer this service? if...
