    M998 Alternator adjustment

    Soak the plug with Kroil for a day or so and it will break free with a little effort. Kroil is the best product I've ever used on frozen hardware.

    hmmwv ambulance body

    As far as I know the only M996s were done back in '86 and they were only doing lapbelts back then. I added the 3 point belts and then had to change them because the original belts wouldn't fit one of my friends. There are at least 3 different lengtth 3 point belts, the longest of which is...

    I rivetted a 1/4" plate of aluminum to the B pillar for the upper seatbelt mount.

    I'd suggest tracing them and then mailing the drawings. PDFs have a bad habit of changing sizes when they get scanned.

    hmmwv ambulance body

    I originally bought mine from George Hilton over at Surplus Enterprises. I went back and pulled the receipt but all it says is Bracket, L.H. and Bracket, R.H. so there may not be a real NSN assigned to them.

    2 Way Radio for David Clark head sets

    Go online and look for some used aviation intercom sets. Softcom and Sigtronics are a couple that come to mind. The advantages are they're simple and small, run on 24 volts, and accept the plugs on your DC headsets without modification. And they don't cost a fortune. I've used one in my HMMWV...

    Niehoff alternator amperage question

    The output current from an alternator isn't controlled by the alternator but rather by the load placed on it. That current rating is based on the components designed into the alternator. Wire size, rectifier diode specs, stator windings, there are many factors that need to be considered but...

    A0-A1 seat swap

    When I did my commanders seat upgrade the kits weren't available so I bolted the seat directly to the floor after removing the right angle floor brackets and turning them around. Underneath I just used so 1" strap stock aluminum to prevent the bolts from pulling thru the floor if I had an accident.

    HUMMIES for DUMMIES

    Back on topic? When I installed the dual pull brake MWO in my HMMWV I found it almost impossible to get the retaining rings that hold the flexible lines to the B pillar on. The only way to make them work was to sand the CARC paint off of the area where the clip seats.
