    Type of motor in Deuce

    Hello all, I tried to research what type of motor was in our 1977 American General M35A2. I know it is a 4-cylinder but we are looking to put fuel filters on the state forestry grant since this truck is owned by the forestry and on loan to us. We can put maintenance items on the grant. How...

    M1028 & Rear Hitches

    Hello all, We are looking to put a rear hitch on the back of a former 1985 Chevy M1028. A Draw-Tite representative is asking the following questions. I know it is an 8 foot bed but how do I know if it has a deep drop bumper or not? I did not get to measure and see if the frame is 34 inches wide...

    2 12v or 1 24v Battery Tender?

    Hello all, I talked with a Battery Tender representative and they said a 24v battery tender would be used on a 2-battery system but I don't think they understood what I meant about the startup of the M1028 being 24v and the rest of the vehicle running on 12v. My dad is thinking two 12v battery...

    Trouble cross referencing glow plug relay

    Hello All, Our M1028 truck was recently inspected for the year at the fire company and the mechanic said the glow plug relay was bad. He said they are about 30.00 but told us we could install it ourselves to save on costs. He did not give any type of part number. I tried cross referencing the...

    M1028 Won't Start Easily

    I was just informed that our M1028 at the fire company won't start easily. This past Monday it started right up after letting the glow plugs warm up. Wednesday it wouldn't start even after glow plugs warmed up and they sprayed starting fluid and it started right up. We are thinking it could be...

    Tires for M1028

    I was told our pickup is a M1028 from this forum and the fire company got the truck from the DCNR federal excess vehicle program. It came with tires, but these are not the best for off-road locations like we are going to use this truck for. It has a 200 gallon water tank in rear so it will sink...
