    Anybody change the thermostats on a 8.3 A2 engine?

    My M936A2 wrecker is overheating, I thought it would be the shutterstat, but the cross over pipe it mounts to and the radiator don't get hot at all while the engine is overheating. It looks like a night mare to change those two thermostats! Anybody change them out and any pointers before I...

    For anyone needing new wheels for your M1009 8 inch wide I got sick of people trying to sell me used rims at $150 plus shipping as these 8 inch rims are hard to find. Summit has them brand new shipped to you at a little over $100. If you need NEW rims for your M1009 there you...

    M923 NHC250 stalls when stopping. Idle seems low too.

    I can't seem to find this second air pack in the TM's that directly connects to the brake pedal linkage. Is there a rebuild kit for this?

    Bead locks, DO I need them?

    I'm confused by beadlock and runflats. Do I need either with 14R20's or 395? on a 5 ton? I don't go offroad except my yard and mainly drive on paved roads. I plan on switching all the 14R20's in my collection to 395's and frankly it looks pretty tough getting bead locks out of a tire to put...

    What snatch block rating would I need? and can I use the front winch?

    I'm very confused on the snatch block I would need to pull my M936A2 out here. I'm confused if I could use the front winch or need to use the rear winch to pull itself out.

    After getting tired of a few long term members floating disinformation through either ignorance or jealousy insisting the gov't could come and take our private property anytime they feel like I decided to contact the DLA directly. Not only did they respond by email, but they called me twice to...
