    MAN KAT US owners?

    Thats why the Fire Dept allows cops to hang around. You've heard of the canary in the coalmine? The cop at the hazmat incident.

    Fuel storage and fuel transfer

    NG is an interuptable fuel source. ONLY if the genset has fuel stored on site, is it classified as a backup/emergency genset. That means diesel or LP.

    Just purchased an MTVR...

    Paying attention to the GWVR is a pretty dang smart thing to do. #1 killer of Vol FF in vehicle wrecks is rolling tankers. The best DOD surplus chassis ever available for a rural FD, was the M916A3 that were put out a few years ago. Near new/low miles with huge load rating. We have a HEMMT...

    Hmmwv is so unique. But I wonder why a few things

    I spent time as the S-3Air for an 9ID CAB-H Inf Bn (HMMWV), AS-3 of an Air Assault Bn, Co Cdr of an Air Asslt AT Co (HMMWV). NEVER did the idea of sticking a HMMWV inside a CH47 arise. Certainly no ones doctrine. I don't think could be done. Certainly not practical. Sling load, tandem...

    Hmmwv is so unique. But I wonder why a few things

    Old thread that popped up when searching "463L" I was in 9ID Mtz in spring 86. Still the "Experimental Test Bed" and was receiving the 1st big batches of M966/M998. None had grill guard (or spare tires). Not a problem at Yakina but we were tearing the heck out of those huge expensive hoods...

    MEP 803a Engine Sludged Up

    Had an engineer acquaintance neighbor who was hired for an experimental/proof of concept project for a bio/cogen installation at a NE Iowa college dairy demonstration farm. About 15yr ago. He had a large pile of fed grant $ so installed a new good size genset. As I recall was over 200kw...

    M920 wheel and tire help

    DOD still using 24" anywhere else? I don't think so. Our M911 but are 14.00x24" so certainly obsolete. Get the NSN for the tires to your state fed surplus. They may be able to get thru DOD surplus though I doubt any M920 (thus tires) are still in active use by DOD. If can find the tires...

    MEP 803a Engine Sludged Up

    Looks like something some potheads would do. I'd think any self-respecting pothead would only be using offgrid solar. Nasty ole dino juice is just not prog.

    MEP-531a

    Saw full kits with valve and base (at over $85) which don't need. Looking for a long term fix vs superglue patch. But if can't come up with the bowl may try patching it. Great little gensets. Shame the Army didn't make with the Hatz 1B30CS engine as they used on the new 150gpm pumps...
