thank you. Do you know where I can find a list of the correct fluids/ oil/hydraulic etc and quantities for this truck? Also, need new gaskets for wheel hubs and filter types?there is an appendix at the end of one of the TMs posted here that has a huge list of various fluids but can’t really tell which goes where or quantities.Yes, lowered cab, valve 3 in direktion down. Fill to the lower edge of the filler hole 2. Means nearly full.

These pics are from the owners manual of a MAN F2000 but the function is the same.
Our 1977 Kat1 is powered by a Deutz V8 aircooled engine. Our 1996 MAN F2000 is powered by a straigt 6 liquid cooled engine. Yours is powered by a V10 liquid cooled engine, so I have no Data sheed. Perhaps you find out an engine number or/typ ( like D28 40 V10 turbo) I will check if these engines are used in other trucks. Perhaps we find out some specs this way.
was feeling a little under the weather today, so I didn’t make it out to the 8x8. I did translate the transcribe the data plate that I got a photo of, here are the results.Reed make a list what you need. I will look for numbers. Need a better Pic of the Data plate, need numbers of Engine , frame, year of manufacturing.

I sure hope there is a way to speed this truck up. This road speed chart/shifting regiment seems like a pain in the ass, to go slow. I hear the whisper of bigger turbo, fuel filters, intercooler.
.Well I was able to get the first blown out wheel jacked up and removed from the 8x8. Now I just have to take the locking ring off, which looks easy in the manual but is proving to be more difficult in person. The wheel is pretty rusty. Another problem I ran into yesterday is a clerk at my local tag office here in Georgia, denied my title transfer. I have a Texas title for the truck in hand, she didn’t even know what the vehicle looked like or the Man truck company. She had me email her a couple of photos of the truck and then told me that Georgia wouldn’t honor the Texas title and it wouldn’t be allowed on road Because it probably couldn’t pass minimum safety standards. Which is true in its current condition. This was a serious bummer, but their decision seemed kind of random, since they just had a quick discussion around the corner then said no. I should have emailed her a photo of an lmtv or something. The truck was built in 1983. Anybody have any suggestions? I did say that I was restoring it and that it was going to be quite some time before I would ever need to drive it on the road. If anybody can advise me on what would be best to do, I would be great full.
She said "probably". The word probably is not definitive, and nothing conclusive.She had me email her a couple of photos of the truck and then told me that Georgia wouldn’t honor the Texas title and it wouldn’t be allowed on road Because it probably couldn’t pass minimum safety standards.
"Two stage"? What does that mean in a bottle jack, Migginsbros?We jack like this. don`t forget the wheel chucks on an other wheel. Just a two stage 5t hydraulik bttle jack.
