Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
I'm into heavy equipment construction and we normally look to replacing a given piece when it reaches 10,000 hr.......I don't remember seeing an hour gauge on the tank....don't even know if it had one...but if it did...what was the typical reading?
I don't remember any guages but it was 1964. We sort of drove them till they dropped. Maybe the mechanics tracked it. I remember having an engine pack replaced in the field once.
Idon't remember the number of hours, but do recall that the tach drive cable could be hooked up to the hour gauge to run up the hours so we could get a new pack.
