    Newly purchased M923A2 advice

    Welcome to the site and the hobby! The M939 series trucks are fun and very useful. There are lots of guys on here who will be happy to help. Re: hard tops, I’d say whatever you can get your hands on, though of course fiberglass won’t rust. As for your alternator and wanting an upgrade to...

    Findlay Ohio 2022 show, Sell, Trade, Wanted List/ May19-22

    Great trip. Got to see a couple people I hadn’t seen in a few years (Gimpyrob and MwMules) and met a few others. Went and made a couple other stops at other owners’ places as well.

    Ken, I feel ya. These trucks aren’t just a truck. This hobby changed and probably saved my life. My current circumstances are entirely a result of these trucks. Thanks for sharing. There is nothing like these trucks.

    Best darn trucks ever built. Wouldn’t trade the 5 tons for anything. Where’d you find her?

    71DeuceAK's M929A2

    Got a spare tire today, was originally with the truck but didn’t get to go pick it up until now. Needs a valve stem and possibly a gasket. Was heavy but not too bad with three of us. It had sat in a cornfield for over a year, planted around by farmer, got it in a dump trailer and dropped and...

    71DeuceAK's M929A2

    Good thoughts. I’m going to probably stay incandescent for now with the lights. (BTW, how do I activate the hazards/4 way flashers? Never been able to do that successfully). I’ll try the business card on my suspected exhaust leak. Do I try and fire her up with that in there and see if it stops...

    71DeuceAK's M929A2

    Found I might have an exhaust leak, Although I don’t think it’s the manifold. Rather, I think it’s where it exits the turbo charger. At first, I thought it was steam, since I have started up the truck on a damn 40° weather day, but it definitely smells like diesel smoke in there under the hood...

    71DeuceAK's M929A2

    Trying to actually maybe make this thing road legal and DOT-passable (as much as one of these will). Ran it in the Christmas parade, where a shakedown voyage on this gigantic beast without plates wouldn’t draw the wrong kind of attention. At least I found a good list of issues I have in...

    Bringing My MV Home

    I remember a night spent in the cab of an M925, 31 degree overnight low that killed my phone and circulation to my toes. It may be rough but you will remember this adventure for a lifetime!
