    H-1 Ground Support Heater, NSN 4520-01-056-4269

    If you indeed bought the lot, I might be interested in buying some engine and aux parts off of you when I get back to my project. I suspect at this point I've got leaky fuel lines and connection to replace, as my last troubleshooting exercise seemed like the engine was flip-flopping between...

    MSD-ICE Kit Diagnostics

    Just responded to some PMs that have been left for me on this subject over the past couple of months. Nice knowing there's still an interest in these! I'm guessing another batch of these trickled out a couple months ago and people are just figuring out that the software is a bit of a treat to...

    Light Bars for my HMMWV

    I don't have any specific leads for you, but what about the type that mounts inside the cab, against the windshield? In a quick search, it looks like most are fitted for specific vehicles to perfectly match the windshield angle, but I'm sure with enough digging, we could find one that goes...

    That's using a customized Tesla driveline. No word yet (as far as I know) on the price point of the Chevy Bolt kit mentioned in the original post.

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Those look fantastic and actually legible at-a-glance in the dark, rather than just looking at the needle and remembering roughly what speed each position means.

    MSD-ICE Kit Diagnostics

    Folks, GreaseMonkey63b is asking about the internals of the ICE diagnostics adapter box, not the HMMWV PCB. I can't for the life of me remember if I have the black or the green adapter box. After Christmas, I may be able to find some time to take a look and see if I can easily disassemble my...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Hmm, my wife has told me that the garage stuff in the house has got to go. I told her the garage is full. When she asked with what, I said uninstalled parts for the HMMWV. She then asked me, "Well, why haven't you finished that yet?" After silently gesturing to just about everything else...

    Hmmwv Intercom VIC-1 vs VIC-3

    Most of what you want to do can be done on the VIC-1 for much less money than on the VIC-3. It's an older, simpler system optimized for inter-connection with the VRC-12 radio series. You'll have a multi-station intercom system with the option to have any user listen/talk on a connected radio...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    With the seat boxes out, this is an official stowage point for water and fuel cans. You can carry a total of four 20L containers, secured down with footman loops and retained straps. Check the loading plan for a "Prime Mover" configuration, used to move Howitzers.

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Seems like a common leak point. I think they like to flex and crack the original sealant there. Mine currently likes to leak in there, right on top of my foot.

    MSD-ICE Kit Diagnostics

    Hey look, I think I've been summoned. I do just so happen to have the recovery disks. Disk 1 is the image to restore the main image to the Miltope MSDv2 laptop. Basically useless, unless Disk 2 is the image that has all the drivers and software programs to do the actual diagnostics. You...

    VIC to Cellphone Adapter and Military Radio Digital Modes Adapter

    A device similar to this one would be the easiest way to make it happen. It's just a dummy device to bridge the 3.5mm audio jack to a paired bluetooth device, like a cell phone. Edit: But the reviews on...

    Harris RF-5800-MP radio

    No replicas that I've seen... A few of the real-deals show up here and then, but they seem fairly rare still. I think I've only seen discussions around the military radio circles from 2 or 3 people that have them, so I wouldn't count on finding one soon unless you know a lot of people or are...

    Juan's M998 HMMWV

    I know this subject is old, but I came back here looking for installation photos that I remembered seeing a couple years ago. I just picked up an RF-382A-015, the shock mount, and the cabling for it. I'm very close to having a full 150W HF system in my HMMWV. Literally three small cables away...

    Weepy injection pump

    The complete procedure is in TM 9-2320-280-34, Section 4-5 "Servo Advance Seal Replacement". This is the TM most people seem to overlook, because it's sometimes hard to intuitively know what's supposed to be at this higher level of maintenance. You'll need to have the intake manifold removed...
