    Also in WA and reading because I would love to have one if these. Haven't had the nerve to bid on any as I don't know much about them or have any heavy truck maintenance experience. I like the ones Suprman has out there in my home state of CT, but too far away. I saw a really nice privately...

    PSA WTB Ads and Friends...

    I've gotten two PMs in two days, each one from a new member telling me they have a "friend" with the parts I WTB. The new members have no posts in any sub-forum and the emails are those name+random numbers ones you get by default. PSA part is these are traditionally scams or spam. I reported...

    Normal fuel pressure?

    Found it in the other thread: The gauge indicates between 9 and 10 psi at high idle, then when the idle drops it’s between 6 and 7 psi.

    M1009 Brake Shoes and Differential Seals

    When I realized you weren't waiting by the forum for my questions, I went outside and figured it out. :D Question- do I want to use a limited slip additive with the 80/90 gear oil? I got some, just don't know if I want to use it. The LO doesn't mention it for the 1009, but the gov-lock is a...

    M1009 Brake Shoes and Differential Seals
