nice score.... pics?
I cannt post pics. Oh yeah its got 30k miles on it. But the transmission has got me puzzled. I have Zero knowledge on the auto transmission and how to diagnose any problems other than low fluid level.
FYI.................I hate you.......
I have been looking for over 2 years for just the right deal. I have every manual that the military ever made for these trucks also. But the troubleshooting guides dont address this problem directly or that i can find. Theres only 2500 pages to look though
I think i found the problem. I read the trouble shooting tips and it said the vacuum modulator may be leaking. So i look and there was no hose going for the modulator and the hard steel line. I took some off a car i had in my yard and put it on and the truck now moves forward.
The ride in this truck with no weight on it is like riding a bucking bronco. Super rough. I gues the super stiff springs with coilover shocks aren't helping. Front end seems like its bolted straight to frame no travel. I gues i have to replace the springs with some from a lighter duty truck to get a desent ride out of it.
Yeh, I believe they are 1 1/4ton springs. Whered ya find it at? Private seller I assume? If ya see another one for 900, send me a pm
I found it on a gov web site. Its a 1028 for sure. The vin says it and the little tag riveted to the door says it to.
whats the load cappacity say?? mine says 3600lbs , most of the tags I've seen say less for m1028
enjoy the limited slip up front it really helps, when I first started wheeling this truck I tried the old crawl up it theory, but 6000 lbs takes a little more pedal to climb with, so now I just point and stab the throtle and am amazed at the ability, this is when I really fell in love with this truck
same 3600 total. Curb Front 3350 rear 2450 total 5800. the Gvw front 3800 rear 5600 and total 9400. Funny the front can only hold another 450lbs.
