    M1010 Alternator

    The Prestolite A0012800LC looks to be a self exciting alternator. It does not need a signal/ switch to get it to charge. With my truck running 13.8v on the front battery and 28v on the rear...

    Steel Soldiers MV of the month 2022 - November VOTE HERE!

    I wouldn't worry about the M1010... :LOL:. It was built for a purpose and not the purist which I'm fine with. Just threw it in for fun... :driver:

    Thanks! Looking forward to using her more for what she was built for! I still have a list of things to do so I'll keep working on her as well.

    After a couple of recent road trips going to try working on communication. Picked these Sena SPH10’s up off of all places Craigslist after looking at several intercom options. They connect to each other through Bluetooth, up to 4 can be connected together. We’ll see how they do… 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #M1010...

    M1009 rims - upping the size from stock?

    If your looking at 33's but don't want the 12.5 width you can consider alternative sizes... 16" rims - 255/85/16 17" rims - 255/80/17

    CUCV M1008 Rag Joint Replacement

    Just a suggestion... although the ragjoint has worked for many years. I do consider it an upgrade that helps the steering on these old trucks. YMMV... :cool: Crown Automotive Steering Shafts 4713943
