Military Truck Crazy Suspension Damage - Can We Fix It?

23 000 Vaatamised 906 tuh

This 1973 M342A2 2-1/2 ton military truck has some major suspension damage that makes it very sketchy to drive. Let's get to that bottom of it and see it we can fix it.

    Rather than answer so many repeat comments: This is a 2-1/2 ton truck, not a 5 ton, designated M342A2. The engine is a White Multifuel. The wheel bearings are supposed to be grease packed. They cannot run oil like a modern axle. The inner wheel seal is not designed to keep oil in, it just keeps dirt and water out. The egged out locating pin in the spring perch is not causing the axle alignment issues. That is very old damage. The spring perch was located correctly when measured before and parts were replaced. The pin is just there to line the parts up during assembly. The bolts keep the perch in position.

      The multifuel engine was manufactured by Continental Motor Corp. under MAN license.

      The axle parts should be pretty common, it's just a Rockwell 2 1/2 ton, alot of guys run them in their mud trucks. I know they do make disk brake kits but they are very expensive. I have a M105A1, its basically the same truck except mine has a radio box on the back. Nice to see how it's all done lol.

      @Kenneth see Turbo. You need to let the oil carry the heat away from the Turbo main bearing before shut down or it will cook itself solid .

      I'm not sure the reason why but when I was in the Army those trucks that deuce-and-a-half and the five tons you can't just shut him down you had to let them cool down and idle for a couple minutes then shut them off if I can remember correctly I think it had something to do with the injectors

    I helped rebuild trucks like these,...."deuce and a halfs",....code F to code B rebuilding(inoperative to operative enough for war),....in West Germany US Army in the late 80's as a so called mechanic, ...more of a multi mechanic doing alot of things. Did alot of the axle work, packing the bearings, putting the axles in,....I even broke or sort of smashed my fingers one day when I slammed home a axle into place too fast, ha, ya know, holding the axle hub end,...due to having been awake and mechanic working for bout twenty four hours. Adjusted the brakes along with complete brake jobs, replaced tires, the left side whell studs are left hand tightening, not righty tighty. I did alot, its hard to believe it was me, but eh. The more experienced soldiers did welding on the cabs which had massive rust, ....several just got a brand new in storage cab assembly. Using the large floor jacks, getting under the vehicles and placing jack stands, etc etc. We had of course 3/4" air impact driver,...plus one inch, ...actually we had some hand impact tools for things, no air, all mechanical,...worked great for the large fork lifts...its hard to believe I never became a truck mechanic after service, ...some folks just didn't want to take a chance on hiring someone military trained in a local tight job market,...probably their loss,..my gain, ...its hard dangerous work, surprising I didn't get hurt or killed in service,...had a truck come off jack stands on one side on uneven ground once,...with me underneath, no tires on that side, haha, ya know,.....field service work in a war zone....

    That U-pattern on the gear shifter brought back memories of a -69 Firebird 400 convertible I once had. It was equipped with a M22 manual gearbox and some previous owner had turned one of the shifter arms upside down on the side of the box due to lack of room (I'm guessing). Took some time getting used to... Apart from that: Excellent job and it warmed my heart to see that good old ingenuity is still around. Greetings from Sweden...

    your alignment problem is usually caused by 1, broken spring center pin bolt , 2 , yours seems to be caused by the center pin on the perch pad and axle , 3 , weld the perch alignment hole and then redrill using an end mill for a flat mottom surface , this may heelp or may not in your case , but these type of repair is fairly common in logging trailers and trucks ,

    On the bent axle...seen it happen when a fellow student popped the clutch while dumping a load of dirt...truck has enough torque that when it pulled the nose off the ground it torqued the axle just right it bent the axle tube....of course this was on 5 ton dump...also if that 5 ton dump is anything to go buy well the master cylinder on your truck is actually in the wrong spot because it is supposed the cap is actually supposed to be level (or just slightly below) with and in front of the crossmember...then again the pto/raise/lower lever and the e-brake levers on the 5 ton is backwards of yours....I know it's not yours yours but you know what I mean

    Sept 13th 2021 Lots of guys like me , love those old AM General Pattern Of Military trucks! The looks of the old Girl are Magnificent! This Is NOT to take away from the common sense of the new generation of them. The tilt cabs, and such ! Yes Many of the finer points, of the mechanical details, can in some cases be traced to the nature of the parts that the military specs out, for instance, the 8 points of adjustment for the brake shoes. But I am NOT an expert. Stuff was done that way for many reasons, unique to the military. these trucks for instance were built to wade through seas of mud! That is why the drive lines are level for maximum strength! Top load diffs too. People have to get into the historical records of the procurement history, of these trucks to understand. Also, to be fair, give the Brooklin Bridge, to an idiot, and he will break it! And there is not much that can stand up to Young ignorant, high on adrenalin; young men, who think they are immortal; Also, your client , may have done that damage, and is not admitting to it! I am sure your Bill was not cheap. I hope He learned his lesson! Parts are available , Wes ! You just got to call around. The used stuff may have to come from a scrap yard 1000 miles away. But they are out there. Also, because they are specialised, they are not cheap. Usually. But what is cheap, these days? These trucks like jeeps are an IKON, of the Nation. They have a following, that will not go away soon. I think you did a great job, working on it! Bravo! I love watching you WES!

    In 1988 I was assigned to the Presidio of San Francisco. I was an engineer and she was the only company there, why the company's Battalion was in Fort Lewis, Washington. The company was Charlie Company 864th Engineer Battalion. We had all the old-school Warstock to include vietnam-era vehicles. Long story short, this is a 5-ton dump truck or deuce-and-a-half version of the dump truck. I Learned to Drive these manual transmission trucks with a full combat load in the foothills of San Francisco . And we would often drive through downtown in a convoy while on maneuvers and field exercises throughout the bay. Talk about pressure :-). And this was the same model that I drove and I deployed Desert Storm, Shield and Recovery. And the funny thing is I was also in the Army years later to take part in operation Iraqi freedom. And I was in a unit coming out of Germany at the time as a Quartermaster. Fuel specifically. For whatever the reason we couldn't bring our own vehicles with us. We had to draw loaner vehicles in Kuwait. Lo and behold there was my old truck sitting in storage. That's almost an 11 year difference for truck that was manufactured 1970 and was Vietnam. Somehow I don't think the vehicles were using now will have the same longevity:-(. LOL

    When I was in the National Guard back in the 80's and early 90's, we ran the 5 ton dump trucks. We were 12B Combat Engineers, but not mechanized so we had the wheeled vehicles. Out of the 3 line platoons, 2 had 5 tons from the 1970's which were diesel engines, and my platoon, 3rd, had gasser 5 tons from the 60's. We did have the 2 1/2 tons too, but those were used by the Mechanics and the Cooks and Headquarters. Ultimately they took the old gasser 5 tons and put the turbo diesel engines from the 2 1/2 tons into them so all the trucks ran on the same fuel. I don't know how those ultimately did in the 5 tons, I got out right about that time, but they also updated all the trucks with seat belts, and the gassers got turn signals which they didn't have before. Fun times and more than a few memories.

    Of all the mechanical jobs on a truck, I despise anything to do with bearings the most. No matter how hard you try, you cannot avoid making a colossal mess. Having said that, I like that bearing packing tool you have. I have a similar one. But smaller. For car and light truck bearings. From one pro mech to another, I like the way you work. Methodical, conciencious, and not afraid to crack a manual when you don't know the specs on a procedure. Nice work.

    In 1974 I was a Combat Engineer(12B10) and I was assigned the newer bigger brother(5 ton) of this older 2/1/2 ton Dump Truck. It was a great truck and with all wheel drive it was a beast and I never got stuck in it. It was diesel and not a multi fueler. I drove many 2 1/2 and 5 ton trucks in the Army. The 5 tons were much better trucks to drive. They had a great drivers seat and power steering. The deuce and a halfs were not easy to steer but tough reliable trucks. The Army trucks they use today are like Mercedes compared to these old tough trucks. Thanks for your video and good luck with your truck. Good Luck BP

    Next time a military truck comes in it will probably be perfectly straight forward and you will first get out your tape measure and measure the truck tire positions and if it is not perfect Wes will say, "hey a truck shop is just down the highway"!!!

    I’m not surprised you got success with the repair. I’m surprised you Guy’s have a good Crop! Must have been Blessed with good rain. Many Farmers are experiencing drought and short short nonexistent Crops! God Bless! 😌❤️🇺🇸

    Smaller tires or replace the rear axle. That’s all. They better buy a parts truck at the auction. God Bless and be safe! No shakin’ hands with danger ⚠️😏🖖🏼🇺🇸

    that is basically a 6-rod suspension...........very popular in Australia, even today. Roadtrains that run in the outback wont use airbags if they run on dirt roads, they spec 6-rods instead. Heavy trucks from the 1970's often have that power steering setup. It has a dump body on it.............someone dropped a big rock in the back, thats what happened.
