    I have joined the CUCV crowd with an M880

    I am not sure why it has taken so long, but here is the rest of the story. The bed was shot, so I purchased a 1990 parts truck and swapped the beds. The power steering was also donated from the 1990 Dodge. The truck was stripped of I swear 20 layers of paint, and then received a new coat of...

    M880 Dana 44 axle seal confusion

    Please trust me, I have looked everywhere but I can not find a reason or explanation. I am trying to figure out the inner bearing seals on my 1977 front axle, but I am not winning the battle. If I look at the TM's, there is a 3 piece seal consisting of a slinger, a wiper and a cup. In all of...

    I have joined the CUCV crowd with an M880

    I just acquired a 1977 M880 truck, in the ever wonderful Forestry Dept red. The price was right, but the truck needs about everything. My wife already thinks I am nuts, I want to park my 2011 Dodge truck and drive this in winter!

    Sunday is better for me, I just noted that a few post up mentioned Saturday. It would not be the first time I arrived on the wrong day and had breakfast by myself.

    57th Fighter Group Restaurant

    As long as everything stays running right, count on one M35A2 W/W. I added the W/W in there for the extra parking room, I thought my pickup felt long!

    M1022 anyone?

    I got lucky on the bolts, the tool box had 2 spares, not sure why but I am not complaining. Of course I did discover that the umbilical cord is missing, I knew things were going to well with it.

    M1022 anyone?

    The one that is the most important, the lower bolts that hold it together when not in use. Square head, almost a foot long, there are only 2 on the unit and one of mine is broken.

    M1022 anyone?

    Are you telling me you have not held onto any parts for years with no real use for them? Well, OK so normal people don't, but I have hope.
