    Official 2020 Georgia Military Vehicle Rally (20GMVR) information thread

    The weather was great and the date change only prevented one of my friends from attending but he would've been there if he knew earlier. As for Eli's comment about people acting like jackwagons on ATV's, I hate they don't enforce curfew as well but no matter how heavy a police state they...

    Official 2020 Georgia Military Vehicle Rally (20GMVR) information thread

    Safe trip home, lost the alternator belt with 160 miles to go but the batteries held up fine. Welder1 and my buddy Steven texted they made it fine as well.

    Official 2020 Georgia Military Vehicle Rally buy-sell-trade thread

    Last minute request. Does anyone have any interest in hauling an M1102 trailer to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the port? The gentlemen who purchased it goes by Stinkmarder on this forum and he offered me $500 to haul it. I have no interest in taking it down there but I can pull it to the Rally...

    No need to sleep on the ground Wes, we'll have room in the big cabin across the road from the main lodge.

    Recovery, Put me down for it and let me know a way to pay you before the Rally. My youngest son wants my CUCV to be his first vehicle and an overdrive transmission will be a well needed upgrade.

    Swiss, I'll take the 2 used 14r20's. My fronts are cupping and 60% is probably about where my rears are. 200 each or for the pair? Gotta make sure I have the right money in the envelope.

    Awesome Sauce. I have a friend who's M35A2 blew a head gasket recently so this will be a "Pay it Forward" scenario. Thanks Kindly to Steel Soldiers and SECO. Found an entire engine gasket kit with updated head gaskets for $285 + $20 shipping so I'll toss in a little extra and have my friends...

    Skipping NHC-250, bad fuel line or overhead adjustment?

    Truck is cured after changing the fuel filter, cleaning the crud out of the canister, dosing up heavy on some Howe's lubricator fuel treatment (all 32 oz to about 50 gallons so about a 7 times over recommended treatment) and a heavy right foot on some long drives. A side effect is I found out...

    Skipping NHC-250, bad fuel line or overhead adjustment?

    @msgjd, I honestly think that's some of my trucks problem as well. It sat too much this year. I haven't used Seafoam yet but I'm not far from trying. I did put a bottle of Howe's Diesel Treat (not meaner cleaner, just regular) meant for 320 gallons on about the 50 gallons in the tank...

    If anyone has fuel filters for the driver's side frame rail of the M809 and M939 trucks, I'll take them. I purchased 5 last year and judging by the condition of the one I changed today, I might need a few more until I get this fuel system cleaned out.

    Skipping NHC-250, bad fuel line or overhead adjustment?

    I think ca1517 had just the right advice. I've been extremely busy but found time after Church today to take a swing. Cooler weather helped as well and my truck is advertised on the Church Bulletin as participating in the Fall Festival. Anyhow, I pulled the canister from the driver's side...

    M984 wrecker accesories. What to do with them?

    The newer M1089's have a round crosstube and use the same adapters as the M984's. Attached are photos of one of my crews M1089A1P2 in the National Guard. I ran this truck for a few years before moving up but it still has the name inspired by Ferroequinologist's personal wrecker stenciled on...

    Skipping NHC-250, bad fuel line or overhead adjustment?

    Corey, I had not even thought of that but now that you suggested it, I bet that's probably what I have going on. I feel like the skip is too consistent in the firing order to be air in the system and if it were air in the system, I would think it would "bleed out" after 30 minutes of idling...

    M984 wrecker accesories. What to do with them?

    The spade in the center of the first picture would lead me to believe M984 HEMMT Wrecker BII. The adapters for the underlift are the same as the M1089 trucks with the round style crosstube underlift but I haven't personally seen one in private ownership and have seen very few M984's in private...

    Skipping NHC-250, bad fuel line or overhead adjustment?

    My truck has recently developed a curious condition. It starts fine but sounds like it's only firing on 4 cylinders. After driving about 30 minutes it's fine. Idling for 30 minutes before driving does not cure the issue which in my thoughts would be air sucked in and stuck in the fuel passages...

    Official 2019 Steel Soldiers Georgia Rally (19SSGR) - Georgia Military Vehicle Rally

    I've already got my cabin reservations changed to the revised dates so Welder1 and I will just send it. M923 overloaded with firewood and pulling an M1102 with an M35A2 W/W truck wishing my 5 ton could pull the hills better. Worse come to worse, the Rally get's canceled and we don't get the...
