    How to remove the instrument cluster?

    No magic advise but mine was wedged in pretty hard between the upper and lower edges of the sheet metal portion of the dash. Wiggling it out went a lot better than pushing it back in. Next time around I may take a hair off the opening in the dashboard.

    Wiper Wash Control Wiring

    Okay, I'm in the -20 schematic (Figure F-20) and am trying to figure out how this works. I'm replacing with wiper control switch in the steering column and am finding the plug is wired slightly different and am wondering if I need to duplicate what came out. The first picture is the existing...

    Steering Column - HA!, how hard can it be?

    I caught a quick video somewhere that was a minor stroke of genius. The guy pull the connectors from the connector block itself which makes for a more svelte package when snaking them down the column. I'm no stranger to the molex style connectors so I see if this approach works.

    Steering Column - HA!, how hard can it be?

    All I wanted was to have a working wiper switch. Following the TMs, YouTube, and of course the SS search option I dug into the column. I have not removed the column from the truck and is it actually possible to snake the wire bundle down the inside column without pulling the whole thing out? The...

    Looking for a good template to start a letter writing campaign in hopes to adopt laws pertaining to the licensure and registration much like they have in Texas. Does anyone have a good template from past attempts I can start with? These are not commercial vehicles and the 35 year limit is a...

    I've been looking for the same thing. It's out of my league but Delk's nearby has a trailer unit complete with built-in 10KW gen sets. I'd need my 5-ton to tow it but I think it's easily a 120' tower. A 50 foot telescopic would be perfect.

    Vacuum Regulator Valve for 85 M1009

    Are you getting 20" of vacuum from the pump itself? I'm going around in circles with the vacuum system and I'm just curious.

    M1009 Non "HD" Transmission Case

    LOL... As always, Rusty to the rescue. You know man, at some point we're going to require you to download your brain and getting some fingernail clippings for your clone that SS is going to finance. Thanks for you clear and concise answer.

    M1009 Non "HD" Transmission Case

    Had a transmission pulled from a 1984 M1009 which did not have the "HD" embossed on the casing. As I did not receive this vehicle directly from DRMO I would think is possible that it had been swapped previously but it does appear to be the original transmission. Was the "HD" marking done later on?
