    M1070 HET Speed Improvement

    These are great ideas. Have you done or known someone who's done one of these conversions? I guess the mating of a new trans. isn't an issue since the 92 engine is very common. The Cat 7155 probably would be cheapest, but I have a 916 and all that air clanging and banging while shifting drives...

    M1070 HET Speed Improvement

    Has anyone with a HET undertaken modifications to get the speed up? Replacing four pumpkins can't be fun, but just curious about any mods. My 55 mph trucks I want to run 65, but I'd be happy getting the HET just up to 55.

    Annual Maintenance Costs of LMTV

    I own several of them. The other members have already given very good descriptions of what all is involved to annually have a truck you can use. The condition of these trucks are all over the map. The important thing to clearly understand is that ”Never” and “Always” will not apply. It’s...

    For a Newbie to these trucks, Can I get everyone to list what they had to repair/service/replace when they got their truck and over the next 12 months

    It doesn’t get in the way because the low sides limit the height of the load. In our experience, the tarp clears any load that we’ve put on it that wasn’t high enough to spill over sides. If you decided to put higher sidewalls on the bed, I suppose it might could be too low in front. Right now...

    New lower hitch

    The welding job on this is actually outstanding and very well done. The professional welder who did this has done jobs for us for 20 years with zero issues. We have full confidence in pulling the loads we anticipate. We pull about six different trailers, which other trucks also pull, so...

    New lower hitch

    Had a welding shop weld a lower pintle bracket for pulling our normal ht. trailers. We don't pull anything extraordinarily heavy. Our intention is to do some testing with various loads and evaluate for any bending and cracking. They used same size steel as what the OEM bracket is made of.

    MEP-804A/B for sale

    Well, you're way over my head on these technicals. Are you saying you do away with the original electronic VR's that came with the Cat set to begin with? Do you do this work? I have three M807A's that I was about to just take to Cat and see if they can get them working properly. It's very...

    Buying a MK23...Am I making the right decision?

    We are in TX and have ours fully registered with plates. We just got it inspected and took the the 97 form with an application for title to the county office.

    Converting 416v output to 480v output

    It's printed on the side of each generator. We load tested our 804A, 805A, 807A, and MEP 1060. All will do 480. See pics below. You just set output board for 416, then use voltage adjustment knob or button up to 480.

    Converting 416v output to 480v output

    Just FYI if anyone else ever reads this post. We learned something new. All the mil generators that will do 3 ph 416v can be adjusted up to 480v in stock form, no modifications necessary. They actually were made to be adjustable from 395 - 480 in the 416 output board setting.

    Converting 416v output to 480v output

    Thanks. Looks like there are a number of boost options for 3 ph 240 to 480.

    Converting 416v output to 480v output

    Most water utilities wire their pump stations, lift stations, well pumps, and booster pumps in 3 ph 480v. That's going to be the predominate use of our generators. Lowering the voltage for in place systems really isn't an option.

    Converting 416v output to 480v output

    The data plate on my 30-60-100 kw sets say 3 ph 416v. Is there a simple solution to get the output voltage to 480v. I'm not an electrical guru, so any assistance appreciated.
