    Cochise county? Oh no, you're heading for the "hot" part of AZ~! LOL! Actually, Kingman gets plenty hot too. I'm currnetly looking at some land around Seligman, near the mountains, highlands, whatever, so I can clear some of it and build myself a family camping site w/shooting range that will...

    Harmonic Balancer

    While i agree, I say no shame; just business. As I mentioned earlier, AC Delco parts made in China are manufactured with higher quality control standards and hence, they are demonstrably better quality then most run-of-the-mill Chinese parts, as per my own personal experience. BMW uses Chinese...

    Harmonic Balancer

    Buy new! Harmonic balancer is NOT something you want to buy used and take a chance it is as bad or worse than your original balancer. Unless you are going to get rid of your vehicle and just need to keep it running until sold--- buy new! On my M1008, I replaced my balancer with only 68,000...

    M1009 6.2 diesel removal guide

    Wow! Wow! And WOW! Awesome write up! Have done a few V8 engine pulls/swaps on gassers before, but was pretty much flying blind the whole time. This article should be published on one of the DieselPage forums too. The attention to small detail is priceless! Thanks a million

    It's been a long time

    That's a tough order to fill. If it were me I'd search the usual military vehicle sites/yards/suppliers, whatever. Can't be of more help right now but give me a little time to look in my Favorites. You might also consider joining this site ($15 annual) so you can use the classifieds and vendors...

    Arizona rallies, anybody?

    Hope I'm not posting in wrong thread-category, please correct me if I am but, am wondering if any folks in AZ do get-togethers, rallies, whatever, just haven't found any yet. We're recent transplants to Northern AZ, and seeking Steel Soldiers alliances within the state. Regards!

    replacing cucv flex plate, any easy ways??

    Amen to that! Flexplate R&R was My Hell for 2 solid days and I took more day to be sure I PROPERLY TORQUED anything and everything I unbolted--- especially your starter INCLUDING ITS SUPPORT piece on the engine block. FYI: bad starters and/or weak batteries and/or both--- are the usual culprits...

    Gear Vendors Overdrive it is

    Mostly, I can't speak to going GV unit in the M1009 because it seems few guys have done it. The reason I suspect is because 1009's have a pretty good road-worthy final output, meaning, a rear axle geared for 3:73 (correct me if I'm wrong) which gives decent freeway speeds & mileage. Wanting...
