    9x20 inner tube price check

    I need two inner tubes. Seems that online the going price is $24-28. Is that about right? Anyone have a good source for tube? I plan on patching one just as an emergency backup, but still need two for flats I have now.

    Yet another motor and mod

    Since the SBC oil pump and drill get pretty old pretty quick I searched for a motor to rig up. Since I am all about the 'cost savings' $150+ for a motor is not realistic, I simply don't more that much oil to need it. So, off to (you guessed it) Harbor Freight to get a 1HP clean water pump. 1"...

    Lug nuts (and how to bust your own)

    Won an M105a2 trailer with brandy new tires (molding nubs and all). Seeing that the fronts on Milla were cupped it was time for a swap. The standard budd wrench didn't do anything so off to HF to get the $99 ($79 after 20% off) 3/4th inch air hammer. I didn't have or want to buy the 1/2 hose...

    WMO tips to far

    I drove my deuce to Ft Drum to get a trailer I won. I figured I'd put my WMO to use and 'drive for free'. Well... almost. The first tank up was 100% WMO, but the stuff in the 55gallon drum I had in the bed was clogging up the screen in the filler on the diesel tank.. so I didn't use it...

    Oil dye for TS issue?

    Anyone use and have a source for some dye? I guess its UV? Does it work with minor leaks?? I have drips (and now a slipping clutch) from the bellhousing and want to dye the engine oil to confirm it. Read a few threads about oil from the bellhousing and it mentions a tranny vent? Any pics...

    High and hard........ brake pedal

    I read a few threads regarding hard brake pedal and little brake pedal movement. My truck stops fine, the brakes don't get hot (drag) and I can hear the air pack release (like at a stop sign.. engine is at idle, I let of the brakes and hear a 'fisshhhtttt' sound). I have also squirted oil into...

    Leaking axle... and not the good kind

    Today I was shooting grease in the zerks and got to the forward read axle. Both inner rims were covered in grease and oil. I took the vent off and removed the spring and seal (no fording in the near future) and started to search of leaking axle posts here. The drivers side wheel was...

    M105a2 trailer cable?

    I read a few M105a2 recovery threads and have a good idea what I need to do to get the trailer. I will be using me M35a2 to get the trailer, but I am unsure about the inter-vehicle cable. Is this attached to the trailer? Do I need to buy one? Pics show some black hose/cable looking things...
