    HMMWV Alignment Question - well maybe.

    If your tires are wearing properly I would not align anything. It’s an all day ordeal to adjust the alignment shims at all 4 corners.

    M936A2 Wrecker crane noise

    I think air entrainment. This happens when a seal or hose allows air into the system, and the volume of fluid expands because it is full of microscopic bubbles.

    Need help. M1083A1P2. Ukraine

    PTO is power take off, power for winch (if equipped), CTIS is power for central tire inflation. Look for abbreviations related to “defrost”, maybe DEF. We are going to ask some active duty US Army contacts if they can provide insight into this circuit. This will take a day or so.

    differences between LDS465-1A and the Dash-2 ?

    You see the hp is rated at 2800 RPM, having driven a 656, I can tell you the Allison shift points are all at 2800 RPM, the engine seems like it spends a lot of time at redline.

    Latest M1167 purchase. Too far gone? Or should I rebuild.

    No brainer, put that one back together. USMC was cannibalizing it because it was the pick of the litter at CANN point.

    Ha that is the 1985 version of the TM, the caliper parking brake was just a twinkle in some AM General engineer's eye at that point, the page you pictured is the awful driveshaft parking brake that was in use 1984-89 ish. Find one of the later dated TMs on this site for info on the newer brake.
