    Going to hook at my first HMMWV Today!

    . You speak the truth @sp00n ! Exactly as you said it... Buy it how you want it, or expect to pay more than you would have spent to buy it "your way". Turbo upgrade and going from a 3 speed to a 4 speed are going to cost as much as buying the truck again.

    Can't get the engine to idle

    . The hard part is either deciding or knowing - depending on how long you have been in the game - that you have to commit at least a Saturday a month to maintenance. The more you do it, the better you get at doing the job. Then there is the vehicle itself. It is newer or older? Some of the...

    . So, is that a MANN version of the HET?

    M1152 400 Amp alternator voltage jumping.

    . + Edits No this is standard SOP for all these trucks with the standard PCB Box on it. The glow plugs turn on, turn the "wait light" off, then you crank the truck. Then the glow plug controller to "pulse" the voltage to the glow plugs to help warm up the cylinders more quickly. The pulsing...

    Overthinking things again - Grease - Wheel bearings

    . I remember that forever we used Chrome Moly for wheel bearings. There may well be better stuff out there, but of all the things we had go wrong - wheel bearings "going dry" wasn't a problem. The exception for trucks that were in swamps for months at the time... Even then it wasn't because...

    Master Cylinder Replacement

    . Any chance you could steal the bleeder off your old Brake Booster? Maybe swap one for the other and solve your problem? Might be that the current bleeder got mashed or something like that?

    Where to get shop service manual

    . Like @Mogman mentioned earlier - don't hesitate to ask questions. No such thing as a dumb question. Unless it gets asked, answered, then asked again ignoring the first answer.

    Rear axle seal leak

    . The "one knuckle" measurement is a good safe fill level for the differentials. Not too much. Not too little. Kinda like the Three Little Bears - Just Right...

    New (to me) M1061A1 recovery and lessons learned

    . Agreed. The drop down dovetail "Departure Angle" will get you hung on a hill if you are out in rough terrain. The good news is that there won't be a lot of folks who will be out in the woods with a truck with air brakes. Spring brakes will put it in place and then you could unload the...

    MEP 805B 806B CIM repairs

    . Do you remember - back in the day - when "Made In Hong Kong" or "Made In Taiwan" was the cheapest, most useless stuff in the world?

    Correct 1982 Army green

    . I would agree except that at some point in time, the US Army sprayed it with CARC. I think there is a date on it too - but definitely has the word stenciled on the door. Maybe they keep wreckers longer than troop transports maybe? I dunno. Mine is definitely an A0. Mine also isn't...

    Correct 1982 Army green

    Just so you can see it, the hard top that I bought came with woodland camo already painted on it. You can see from the picture below that my 1983 Wrecker (M936) is 383 Green and the truck and the top are a really close match. The boom in the picture below has some 383 RAPCO Rattle Can Green...

    Question; M1009 CB Power Wiring

    . @jplace1011 , If you decide to wire the radio directly to the battery - or if you wire it so the ignition is on for it to function - having a fuse as close as possible to the connection point (source juice) is a good plan. You could put spare fuses in the glove box, or you could step up to a...

    M818 Generator/alternator question

    . You should be good to go once you get it cranked. That Cummins doesn't have any electronics in it, so the motor is good to go. It should have a manual transmission, so there isn't an Allison involved. Brake Lights are about your only concern - and if you have a chase vehicle - that can be no...

    hydraulic fluid needed for skytrak m6000

    . Any chance you can see the data plate with the military numbers on it? Might make it easier to pull the Technical Manuals. Otherwise, the JLG version of that vehicle uses regular hydraulic oil for the boom.

    Tale of two Deuces

    . I was being nice and that "P" was for a four letter word that I left out. 6 P's or 7 P's, either way is right. One is more specific ;-) Didn't want to get sent to SS Jail for bad language...
