    HUMMIES for DUMMIES

    After reading the hundreds of Tales-of-Woe here on the Steel Soldiers Forum I'd like to create another topic that I'll call "Hummies for Dummies." This would be a place where you could post the things you learned the hard way about your new truck. Things like the mistakes you made and things...

    How the fan/cadillac valve/time delay modules work

    I just posted this on the G503 site and thought it might be a fitting addition to SS for all those New-to-Me HMMWV owners. This is one of the circuits in the HMMWV that is probably the most misunderstad because it works backwards from what your common sense tells you. The gold colored valve is...

    Dixson tachometer info needed

    I have a Dixson Instruments model 540G1-47302 tachometer that appears identical in size (3-3/8") to the standard HMMWV tach and is marked for use on 24 volt systems. What concerns me is the label is marked "4 cyl". The terminal strip on the back is labeled + and - and then the center 2 teminals...

    Repost VSS power connectors

    I found a couple of the unique multipin connectors used to supply control and power to the VSS searchlights. I only found the male connectors and thought I'd see if anyone needs one. Please contact me via PM if you do.

    RF-5033 / 5833 amp success!

    We had a very productive day here in California yesterday. We were able to get all three of our RF-5033 amps up and running and repaired one of the PRC-138s. Only one of the amps would actually transmit, the other two would generate an A30-F01 error code and do nothing even though everything we...

    MVCC cancelling the September Camp Plymouth Meet

    With regrets the MVCC is announcing the cancellation of the September Camp Plymouth meet. At our board meeting held at Eagle Field the board voted to wait until the second week of July before making the decision whether to proceed or cancel the September Camp Plymouth Meet but with the recent...

    Military BNC connectors

    In my HMMWV I've been running an antenna coax with a BNC connector that fits well into the recessed connectors on todays current radios. The connector on the left is what I'm looking for compared to a standard BNC connector on the right. The longer rotating barrel makes this style much easier...

    HMMWV radio footswitch

    The HMMWV is notoriously loud inside and even with the LS-671 speaker you can barely understand what's being said. It works better as an annunciator to let you know someone is calling you. Recently I switched to a really comfortable General Dynamics single earpiece headset I bought off of Ebay...

    Shakespeare SF-3512 base problems

    I'm now working on my 4th SF-3512 antenna base on my M996A1 HMMWV ambulance. The coax between the base N connector and the BMA connector to the mast keeps opening up. I've spoken to Shakespeare about this and they were more than willing to work with me on the problem. Great people! I think...

    New LED backup light

    I've been disappointed with the light output from the stock backup lights on my 996 for a while and decided to do something about it. I found some heavy cast aluminum LED lights on Ebay that were selling for $7.00! A price that was pretty hard to turn down for a 24v LED. I mounted it on a 2 x...

    WTB Ambulance body access door

    I'm trying to find someone scrapping out either an M996 or M997 ambulance that would be willing to cut out the small access door on the lower left panel. Is anyone aware of one? Thank you.
