Deuce and a Half

Adventures related to my M35A2 Deuce and a Half truck

  1. Picked up more military equipment M105A2

    You may have seen my thread asking about my odd configuration for cooling my transmission and towing a trailer. If not, here's a link: http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/sho...-configuration . Well, the trailer I was intending to tow was a M105A2 1.5 ton military trailer. It weighs in right at 3000 pounds, and the bed is a solid 4 foot off the ground. Here's a picture of it:

  2. My Recent Deuce Accessory Aquisition

    This past weekend I acquired some new parts for the deuce. The first thing I got, was a pair of new troop seats.

  4. Changed the Brake Hoses on the Deuce

    Well, the brake hoses on my deuce and a half were probably original to the truck. The outer covering of the hoses were cracked from age, but they were still fine, except for one. My front drivers brake hose had been apparently rubbing against the rim of the tire for a while, and the hose was worn smooth. So, it had to get changed, especially since the brake system on a deuce is only a single-circuit system. This means that a single brake part failure anywhere in the system means no brakes at all. ...
