    359th Trans Company Gun Trucks, Viet Nam

    When you heard "Hold Your Ears" you look up to see if a barrel is sticking over the gun pit above your head! I am real hard of hearing now because of so many rounds going off with in 30 ft and no ear plugs!! It was hard to sleep at first used to stick Cig Butts in them then after a while if it...

    359th Trans Company Gun Trucks, Viet Nam

    On Camp Dillard we had some commercial trucks for the Rock Crusher Pit and they had great tires on them. I remember our Motor Pool putting some on the Steer Tires and the CO getting upset about it. We told him hey they steer better with them on and we did not take them off. See in Nam if you...

    359th Trans Company Gun Trucks, Viet Nam

    Because we could get away with it! Back then in Nam we wanted to look bad ass and put pin stripes and great pictures on them. It was meant to make the VC scared of you and to at least make you feel bad ass too! The guys loved fixing them up. We got guns off stuff that were not intended to be put...

    1078 LMTV A0 windshield wiper

    My Ladder used to climb that pole all the time with spikes to add lights and change lamps. The lights are around 28 ft off the ground too. It was getting harder each year to go up so I welded up a ladder for old age. Old age has come it is even hard to climb the ladder, spike the pole anymore...

    1078 LMTV A0 windshield wiper

    I just took my old ones to NAPA and got the same length and snaped them on. So I would say there just wipers but the Arms that is a different story.

    Hit a Wall on this air leak problem?

    I noticed the air low just sitting with my foot on the brake a little idling. Does not leak when pushing the pedal down. My buzzer comes on around 80 PSI a little early should be closer to 65-70 psi? Other then that I notice no difference in the braking action or air staying up. The compressor...

    M1078 air leak behind grill

    Just blows me away how clean under the dash is for 26 years and to have a part go bad looking that nice?? Put the origin Speedometer back in and it works. Seemed to want to top out at 55 MPH having a 3800 lb load of just water in the back. The mileage was right on too for the drive.

    M1078 air leak behind grill

    The fires(3) have my attention went from 10 to over 2000 acres plus. Bringing in the big boy to drop water with the fire close to houses now. Wanting structure protection too. Glad it has not moved closer to us just getting bigger. Figure the Air might have been leaking for a little bit just...

    M1078 air leak behind grill

    In a test just now I pushed the brake pedal harder and the air leak went quite as long as you held the pedal pushed. Once I let off it leaks again. Still OK from the fires but they found 2 more just a little bit ago from the lightning sleepers waking up. Around 2-6:00 pm will tell if they...

    Hit a Wall on this air leak problem?

    This is about all I found in 780 pages of the TM Manual; The foot control valve (5) receives pressurized air from both the primary and secondary air tanks. The foot control valve is a two circuit design, with one set of ports directing air to the front brakes from the secondary air tank and a...

    Hit a Wall on this air leak problem?

    I believe it is the Brake Pedal Treadle venting till my 3 Tanks are empty over night? I have a hard time following long explanations of a repair due to my old age?? A picture of what I am getting into would be nice. I think it is the part operated by the Brake Pedal just behind it. Sure as heck...
