    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Before one goes changing stuff... check that nasty solenoid coil for resistance and shorts to ground. 68 Ohms in in the middle range and GOOD. Nice to see use of an Ohm meter, rather than poking around and guessing. Good thing the market is flooded with NOS valves. Quoting.... "I guess the...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Before one goes changing stuff...check that nasty solenoid for proper resistance of 58 to 78 Ohms and shorts to ground both leads. Don't want to blow another TDM. Not the first time a solenoid takes out a TDM, CAMO

    Any protection if one manages to flip a non-armored humvee?

    Yes, it was flipped in a control to get it started at speed. (45 MPH) Really not that fast when trying to keep up with today's traffic. When I first saw that video and others wrecked at Yermo... looking over the handful of 1/4x20 bolts holding windshield , B pillar, flimsy doors, etc. and I...

    HMMWV fuel pressure testing and IP timing

    "you can remove the useless transducer on top of the fuel filter and add a pressure gauge." https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/relocating-the-fuel-filter-assembly-my-idea.198371/#post-2312458 RWH.... I'll drink to that, CAMO

    Rear suspension spring help?

    IMO... With AMG or NOS or nice pull off anything springs and shocks military, it's going to ride like a military truck. If going for a sweet ride, money and after market kits to build it for the engineered ride your looking for. HumV..... rock, roll, bumpy and loud, CAMO

    2 Way Radio for David Clark head sets

    Just saw the model number number of your head sets. Common and cheap connectors "TRS" type adds a few bucks to the build. Papakb and others with off the shelf, plug and play might be the easiest at a few $$$$. Money here is tight and Bob the builder is my hero, CAMO

    2 Way Radio for David Clark head sets

    Not sure what your trying to do here??? Are you and son in the same vehicle or separate rigs? If in the same rig this can be easy. The radio thing is throwing me off. Guessing here as no 4 year old is driving another car and would not sit still for not being in the HumV LOL... Soo the...

    Aftermarket X-door to body seals

    Its a custom seal with right angles for the corners. Would seem simple enough, but it's the government / hmmwv thing we should be familiar with by now. A bit pricey but worth it in the long run for another thirty years. I looked high and low at many custom rubber manufacturer to source...

    Aftermarket X-door to body seals

    Real doors require OEM real seals. Peel and stick for a screen door, CAMO

    Does this sound like a fuel issue

    If there is fuel at vent port.. there's a good chance fuel is finding it way to the engine oil. That could be bad news. Rig up a cheep o vacuum / pressure gauge and come up with a number (science) to be sure. Again... here's what I did. No guessing on or off the trail, CAMO
