August MO chapter chat/BS/general nonsense thread...all are welcome!

Howdy, howdy boys and girls.

It's 5:19 pm on 31 July and I'm already getting grief for not having this thread up and running.

Everybody be careful out there...it's hot.

Rich, enjoy your vacation...bring me back something cool!

(...or I'll paint your Bronco for you while you're overseas... )

Woo Hoo! August thread already! Only 4 more months until my boss returns.

I assumed my newest job responsibilities this afternoon - so my brain hurts this evening. Stay cool everyone!

And I have a M105 trailer (just the bed and tailgate) was going to go on the back of ol red but its a little to big.



Michelin 15.5-R20 XL 46" tall tires 95%+ | C&C Equipment
I would love to have a bobber one day, but I really like keeping this one stock-ish. Besides, I dont need to bob it to fit 395's I've done my homework on them... But Right now I am holding off on all major upgrades and repairs until some debt is paid off.

1971 AM General M35a2, Multifuel "diesel" engine with "D" turbo, starts and runs great, carries strong oil pressure. I have turned up the fuel pump so she pulls good. I do need to fine-tune the fuel pump so it can pull hills without worrying about heat. I do have a pyrometer properly installed for monitoring EGT's.

5 speed transmission, shifts good
Air-shift front end(highly prefered over the sprag type)
Brakes work as-expected, but definitely need some maintenance to the air-pack and master cylinder. It quits boosting if you use the brakes non-stop for a few minutes(on and off alot, like on a trail climb or something), they work great around the farm and on-highway.
Has heater with all working controls
All guages work, guage lights worked when I bought it but dont anymore, havent investigated.
2 Brand new batteries, built a battery box when I bought the truck 6 mo ago.
Tires have plenty of tread but are definitely old. I've had new tubes in a few of them, they all hold air and ride fine.
Headlights, tailights, blinkers all work.(put a brand new one when I got it)
Horn does NOT work, havent investigated
Air-powered windshield wipers do work, need blades.
NO major rust, surface rust on a few places.
Cargo bed is in good shape, I have the stake-side for one side and the stakes for the other. Tailgate is warped but still opens and closes.
Windshields are cracked, but they open and close fine, and you can see out of them fine as well.
Canvas soft-top, shows its age, but still repels water and is in one piece, except for the plastic rear window. It was compeltely brittle and fogged up when I got the truck so it has cracked and came apart.

When I bought the truck I changed the 3 fuel filters, 2 oil filters, and new airfilter, as well as the respective fluids.

Parking brake works as designed(NOT an emergency brake).
Clutch seems to hold fine.

Well there it is, a bit of a ramble but I think I hit all the points...
