    Reverse light switch M813

    Pretty much. I found a switch for a different military truck. The one I have on my truck uses the packard electrical connectors. I also used some Y connectors too. Pretty easy to do, took me about an hour to mount everything up.

    Reverse light switch M813

    You have to plumb a pressure switch into the air line for the reverse sprag. I don't know the part number for the switch, but it is a military part. Then run a wire from the stop light switch, that will be your hot wire. It will only come on when you turn on your stop lights and have air...

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Wait, do you mean to say that you drilled and tapped the torque rod bushings while they were still on the truck? I can see how that would not be fun. I had some serious rot on my all of mine so a replacement was necessary.

    NHC-250 PT Pump return line

    Does any one know what sizes and types the tube and fittings are on the return line that connects to the pt pump? This is on a M818, NHC-250 Cummins. I was mounting my rebuilt pump and when I was tightening the return line, I never felt it get tight, or even snug. Then I notice the fitting was...

    AR NHC-250 Cummins PT Pump for 5 ton

    I have a freshly rebuilt PT pump from a M925 5 ton with NHC-250 Cummins engine. The Pump was built by Taylor Diesel in Memphis, TN. They did bump it up a bit by changing out the fuel button. It was originally a number 27 button and was replaced with a number 22 button. I do not have any of...

    I'll never figure out why the people cut off (any) big trucks just so they can show us their shinny brake lights.

    M813 vs m35A2 which is bigger

    The 5 ton is the bigger beast overall. Don't be fooled by the overall appearance though, the interior is still the same size.

    All 5-tons: Heavy Duty Torque Rod Ends

    If you have a small air hammer, If you have a small air hammer, .401 shank, then you can use some chisel bits to split the nuts and knock them loose. That's what I did on 3 out of 4 on the uppers.

    All 5-tons: Heavy Duty Torque Rod Ends

    Correct, the slug wrench used on the lowers, (plenty of room down there), and the modified wrench on the uppers. Keep in mind I also used some air hammers and chisel bits to break the nuts lose on the upper dogbones. I won't need to do that on the lowers. Plenty of room to swing a hammer down...

    All 5-tons: Heavy Duty Torque Rod Ends

    I never shaved the slug wrench down. After looking at the way he shaved his, it can be done with 4.5" angle grinder, and some thin cut off disc. I plan on using the slug wrench on the lowers, so no need to shave it down for that. To get behind the spring pack I ended up modifying a 2" wrench and...
