Best Answer

Only the Vietnam era M551 Sheridan light tank (officially designated the "Armored Airborne Reconnaissance Assault Vehicle" when it was first fielded in Vietnam in January 1969).

The Sheridan had a 152mm main gun, an alumimun hull, with foam flotation material imbedded into it's left and right sides. The Sheridan's turret & main gun were built of steel.

All other US tanks had to crawl along the bottom of water barriers, using snorkels to breath.

1988 Ford Broco fuel float in tank floats in water but not in the tank do you need to replace the entire unit or the thing beside the spring thing?

The fuel float will float in water but not fuel because it has a small leak in the float. Water and fuel have difference densities, and the leak is likely small enough to let fuel in, but not water. For an 88 Bronco, the part you are looking for is COAZ-9202-B

What to do when you lose hot water pressure and only have cold water pressure?

This depends on whether the hot water comes from a combination boiler or from a hot water tank with a header tank feeding it. For a combination boiler the fault would probably be at the boiler, possibly from scale in the heat exchanger. For the system that uses the header tank and a hot water cylinder it could be that the float valve in the header tank is stuck an there for it is not refilling the tank or debris has entered the tank and is blocking the outlet.

Why would septic system have 2 tanks and a pump?

Many septic systems are 'passive'. That is, the final waste water runs by gravity to a field downhill. However, in the powered system there is a 'settling' tank, for the solids to settle and be aerated or subject to microbial action. This tank has a drain near the top to allow 'black water' to trickle into the 'pump tank' . A pump is in this final chamber, switched by a float. When the water gets to a desired level, the float switch operates and turns the pump on, as water drops to an acceptable level (usually after 50-100 gallons have been pumped out) the pump is automatically switched off by the float and water once again trickles in from the main settling tank.
