    Front main seal replacement

    I'm getting ready to replace my leaking front seal and I'm wondering if the pullers referred to in the TM are available as loaner tools from some place like Napa, or are they specialized tools for this motor? And of course, any tips?

    M146 landing gear crank handle

    Has anyone had to replace their crank handle and have a source? Have a trailer that is missing both of them so I can't even do a match up. A civi one would be fine.

    Side of the road (again)

    Not that I really have anywhere else to be once I start having issues. :-] The issues, was running up hill for about 30 miles, was in 4th, just keeping it from overheating. Then it seemed like something popped. Couldn't really hear it well, ear plugs and music, but then I lost a lot of...

    Trying NOT to slay the Draggin'

    Now that I have the engine stripped down to take the heads off, a couple questions. When you pull the pushrod out "incorrectly", how do you set the lifter back where it belongs? :) And, Do you need to take the injectors out? If so, how do you make them come loose? Thanks all

    Deuce Front shock civi part numbers

    In my non-existent spare time I did a bunch of info gathering on this subject. First off, thank you Peashooter for pushing me in the right direction. I started w/ the info I got from Peashooter about the two different shocks, but I didn't like the lack of real info about them on Amazon. So then...

    Pushing an M146

    The latest 146 coming into our compound ended up sitting on the side of the road. True, it was the dirt road in front of the compound, and true, it never gets used by anyone but us (it ends do to disuse just past compound) but it still was a drag. I pulled the trailer here in early Jan. The prob...

    M146 conversion - Spacial Transformations style

    I'm suppose to be working on my M796+Shelter Live-in, but I'm not! This 146 has been taking my time, so I thought I should prob post up some pictures of it. First off I needed a deck for it (we don't have enough ladders and they're a pain when your working in it) So I designed this as a...

    Member Map

    I've tried several times over the last few months and I can't get the map to load. It always hangs on the "map loading" part. I'm sure that it's something here, being that others have posted about the map just a couple months back (and NOT that it wasn't working) I'm using the current FF as a...

    Shelter ladder storage?

    I've wondered about this loads over the last few years, and now that I have a shelter hanging out in the bed I really have been head scratching. Was there a standard way of mounting the ladder when the bed is filled w/ a shelter. Did it just get transported on the floor of the shelter? Doesn't...

    Bolster Shackles?

    I've been searching for shackles for the M796 Bolster trailer. I haven't been able to find any and don't know if I want to use some civy version. It says it the TM that there are 14 of these shackles. After counting out the set up, I'm thinking that the ones they use for the safety chains are...

    5th wheel pin sizes

    I've heard a lot, and did a bunch of online searching, and I'm still not sure how to determine pin size and what a plate will handle. I hear about 2 3/4", 3", and even 2 1/4". Is this the length? What about dia? How do you know what a plate will handle? Is there a way to measure the throught...

    Stripping a comm shelter

    Just recently picked up this shelter and I'm in the process of pulling everything out so that I can use it as a live-in shelter. It's a S448 / TSC 60 (V) 1 and it still has some components. Are any of these worth anything? I'm sure the cables are, but anything else?

    My M796 Work Trailer/Camper Build

    This spring I picked up a Bolster trailer from Quickfarms, it was going to be scrapped. I'm going to use it as the base for a working hauler, and as the base for my live-in box. At the moment I'm looking at something like the S280 shelter to be the box. Though I am liking those shelters that...

    Riding the Draggin'

    Tuff needed some alone time to create more beautiful things, and I needed to do some work on "MY" rig. So I'm out here on a solo trip. I've done so much work on the She Beast over the last few years, and then I realized one day . . . I'm a dependent! All the fuel processing set-up was on her...
