    Any Tips On Getting HMMWV Wheels To Seal Completely

    In the civilian world bead sealing area gets cleaned them some bead sealer is applied to the rim before tire mounted. I had moved out of Mnt by the time we got HMMWV's, so never had the pleasure!

    looking for brake parts CUCV 1984 M1009

    If ever any questions as to part numbers look up in the -20 or -34 TM's. That will give you the GM part number and then a quick google search will get you some aftermarket or whatever part numbers. The military technical manuals are a little wonky, but spend some time in them and they'll make sense!

    CUCV head gasket / head/ or change engine survey

    I'm doing the same here...sell it all so it gets used and not thrown away. When my dad passed (great depression survivor and hoarder) we sold tons of stuff. Pennies on the dollar, but I felt better that stuff was going to a new home. In some cases of tools and woodworking equipment, brand new...

    Little oil drops...

    When we used to run these over the road at high speed (when almost new) these ALWAYS leaked a little oil. And, seemed like the faster you went the more they leaked! Maintenance section used to get pretty pissed seeing the puddles! Yes, it's the main seal! Is it critical? Probably not unless you...

    Anyone Use Inline Tube Brake Line Kit?

    No experience with that particular kit, but plenty of experience at work with kits in general. Usually they don't fit well and you end up rebending and or fighting with them. Stainless comes in all different "flavors"! I've replaced stainless lines and stainless exhaust that didn't last as...

    Heating System Upgrade or Auxiliary Heater?

    Probably showing my age here but..... Used to put cardboard on the floors in the deuces and five tons in the wintertime as your feet would freeze with out it! Feet direct to cold metal never worked so well! CUCV's weren't much better! (And the earlier jeeps were brutal!) M1008 now has 3m sound...
