    Does anyone happen to have one of the military M1031 contact maintenance trucks? I have an 86 with the PTO driven generator. This thing is supposed to be set up to stick weld with a cable from the generator control panel.

    I need to make a set of cables so I can have the weld capability. If someone has the cables, can you tell me how they're made? I don't have access to any schematics, but I don't think it can be that difficult to put together these cables.

    Went to SS first. Got some of the info from the guys over there. Also went on the base and looked over their manuals. Found out that the 1031 needs a separate welder, so I'll just keep the mig in there for now. The older 887 was able to weld right off the panel.
