    Bringing back to life a 2009 HMMWV M1165A1 from GovPlanet - total newbie, please help...

    Your symptoms are consistent with air in the fuel supply. You also mentioned a fuel leak. That is where air could enter the fuel supply. I'd fix that and change the fuel filter. Read up on how to bleed the fuel system.

    What are you using for a 24Volt trickle charger?

    If you have any 12V loads, the best approach is to use a dual bank 12V marine charger (about $100-150). This ensures both batteries are fully charged. Not necessarily the case if you connect a 24V charger.

    Question on Gov planet process - What's a realistic timeframe for first time EUC's right now?, etc.

    Question on Gov planet process - What's a realistic timeframe for first time EUC's right now?, etc.

    If your truck is in Yermo, CA, GovPlanet charges the CA sales tax. However, the sales tax is refunded if your truck is moved outside CA via commercial transport. Need a bill of lading. Pays for some of the transport costs.

    Missing part?

    Thanks. That's what I was hoping for and not something vital that I missed during bidding.

    Missing part?

    Yes, the pictures show holes below the A pillar and missing tailgate. The truck was armored at some point.

    Missing part?

    Tried to find it in the basic parts book. It does not show it either.

    Missing part?

    Need your help again! Here is a picture of the truck I bought at a recent auction (M1123). There are four bolts (upper left corner of pic) on the transmission support bracket that are not attached to anything. Is there a cross brace missing or did underbody armor go there? What is supposed to...

    Arctic Softtop/Doors

    Thanks, that is just what I was looking for. The lack of opening windows in the doors are a downside. I guess one could drive without the doors in the summer. Does the rear curtain roll up with the two small hard windows?

    Arctic Softtop/Doors

    I have a two door M1123 coming with no doors or top. While it is supposed to be running it needs lots of stuff. E.g. I'd need the whole 4 door top/door kit. There are "arctic" versions (green) of the top and doors available. Looks like it just has some insulation between fabric layers. It might...

    HMMWV prices are sure coming up

    Seems like late model 4 seat turbos are what people are bidding up. 2 seat 6.5 NAs 1123s can still be had between 10-15k. Big difference in bidding depending on if the truck comes up early or late at auction day.

    Missing cap on air inlet

    Here are the pics. GP shows the engine running without a problem ( I guess it rarely rains in Yermo).

    Missing cap on air inlet

    Thanks for all the responses. I was hoping for the duckbill valve but as many of you point out it may not have it. I will try to get the driver to tape it up and be present before the driver starts it up on arrival. What are the chances that govplanet would add a cap and drain filter before pickup?

    Missing cap on air inlet

    Hi guys, I recently won an M1123 at auction. Pictures show it is missing the cap on the air inlet-entire snorkel is missing. The vehicle is shown running. Once the truck is released it will be transported to the wet PNW for about 1000 miles. I understand there is a rubber drain valve at the...

    HMMWV Serpentine Belt Issue - 6.5L

    I had a similar belt shredding problem on a Detroit Series 60. Turned out to be a tensioner bearing that locked up intermittently. It still spun when I tested it by hand but you could feel some wear. Mine locked up off and on when the bearing got hot. Wasted a lot belts. I'd take the belt off...
