    HEMTT wheels on FMTV?

    Finally got them done. Cruising with 16s, 2600 RPM is 68MPH. Cruise @ 50 - 55 is around 2100 RPM. Based on an app. Need to calibrate the speedo. Plenty of clearance between the rears. 100.5" track width on the front. With the rim offset, no rubbing on chassis components. Still had (need)...

    I've never seen my m1088 transmission cooler fans come on

    I'm interested in this also. It seems they have so much cooling it would need to be operated for extended periods of time with major load. Even with 18k in my dump truck I never noticed them coming on.

    Needing some input on valve stem / ctis Fmtv valve stem is about 1" short and needs 1" more offset to work on HEMTT wheels First two pics. Factory valve stem has the smooth part to seal on the 90* o-ring. In the haltec catalog, it looks like this is a one off style. Other pics. After...

    HEMTT wheels on FMTV?

    Started to see what is all about. Just as when the truck showed up, then the 16s. They are much bigger than I expected. Split one of the old rims to get the valve stem and ctis hardware out to see what will be needed to fit to the HEMTT wheel. I thought the ctis thread on assembly to the...

    LMTV Alternator Disaster, engine now catastophic

    The Allison transmission/transfercase are combined. In normal operation It splits the ratio 30/70 front to rear. Im Mode, It locks the ration 50/50. It will cause damage if operated w/o a driveline in. @coachgeo has a great set of links at the bottom of his signature. From what I have read, the...

    Just purchased an MTVR...

    I'd recommend getting the pro gun. Depot has them with the cans that thread on. Allows to keep the product good even if you don't use the entire contents. Better control depending on what you need for the void. Use door and window foam for small voids. Less exspansion/ pressure on critical...

    Half the battle is getting after the task. Either way, you will find a resolve, or a way around. The next one, or situation will be accomplished with the knowledge gained. Just remember, others have been exactly where you are at.

    Aloha from a newby

    I had a similar occurrence the other day. I've been slipping the Batt connections on and off. New Batts and alt is running good. Had a random display while cruising to the shop. Check those terminals, charge output at multiple locations like coachgeo. At the Batts, at the alt to frame, and...

    Buzzer with volume control?

    From a can of brake clean. Some wd-40 cans might have a similar cap if you want to dress up the rig with red 😁

    Who's gonna give this a try? :) (safe video)

    Looks like a good time. I can't say I'm ready to do that.... But I would, if the traffic was bad and I needed to get that crate of monkeys delivered.
