on ebay now here
that is one f- up looking mc
I betcha it'd tow like a damn! 10:1 gears!! Mind you it was designed to tow aircraft so I would hope so.
hell it would tow your house
no doubler needed!!!! i would like to have this thing but i have no job or money
that bumper looks like it would kill your depart angle just a bit
Departure angle is less of an issue than articulation -- if memory serves, these are Air Force tow rigs, used to yank planes around ... and have NO springs. That's right, axles right onto the frame.
Greater load capacity, I'm sure, but not much for flex
That thing is bitchin'
throw some 44" swampers on there and park it at the local mudhole. just use it to pull people out for a fee.
Yeah, the only "suspension" is a rubber isolator, similar to a "timbrin", basically just a bump stop.
Killer axles though, as long as you can live with the 10:1 planetary hubs. But swing the axles under a sprung chassis, mount some 48s, then flip a 203 range box backwards for doubler overdrive, and it could be a killer setup.
[Edit] Wouldn't work for mud since you couldn't get any wheel spin, at least not without a 10000 rpm engine.
yeah exactly what i was thinking, overdrive in there, and even putting springs on that chassis the way it is chuck the back, and make a tube bed, be the ultamit puller. hell make it a crawer!!! any one want to loan me some money?
sorry I dont know how this works...
I know if you put a 203/205 setup in you get lower gears... but how do you get overdrive from that? 1:1 and 1:1 on both cases would be 1:1 right?
im only asking as I can get a 203 and was thinkin of doing it for overdrive.... instead of shelling out my soul for a nv4500
Suspension is in that air ride seat!
Instead o' 2:1 for low, it's BACKWARDS for 1:2 overdrive.
Now, I'm no machinist, but I am fricken stumped on the logistics of doing this... hafta have some custom shafts made and be very very clever.
its all in your adapters, and yeah custom stuff needed.
or if you dident want to go that route.
you could get an overdrive.
there are kinds that go behind the tcase and could only be used in 2 wd (advansed i think)
but there is a kind that is befor there tranny i think its a ranger, and it will give you 1:1.75
It takes some custom adapter/shaft work, but you can put the range box in backwards, so 2:1 underdrive becomes 0.5:1 overdrive. And with that gearing, your gonna want around double the drive rpms. That Ranger might work, but still leaves you with the equivalent of around 7:1. And I've never seen a Ranger with that much gear, but I'm pretty ignorant in that arena.
what do you guys think or the master in that truck?
never seen a master cly look like that??!?!?!
Looks like a hydro-boost unit.
i thought the hydro bost just replaced the vac booster and the MC was the same.
that thing has one werid line comeing from the end and screw on caps????
must be for masive brakeing for all the air planes it would have towed.
military guy would that thing tow a galixy?
Definitely not a standard hydro boost. Never seen one like it, probably required something different to match the other hydraulics, or to match the brakes on the axles.
