    CUCV Title/VIN

    I have talked to different people about vin numbers and titles. With that said some rebuilders or "Hot Rodders" that do customs know the rules set by the government on titling. It is the vin number plate that is attached the the cab that is the official ID for the "vehicle" it is well known that...

    New Member 1984 m1010 charging issue

    It depends on the condition of you batteries and there ability to hold a charge. On a 12 volt system an alternator producing a voltage above battery voltage is almost always looked at a good indicator that the alternator is working ok. Usually most alternators in a 12 volt system will max out...

    New Member 1984 m1010 charging issue

    Just letting you know the glow plug system will only operate on 24v as wired. Also the starter system is also 24v so there will need to be replacement of a relay under the dash as well as the starter. Also the albulance box runs on 24v so you will lose the overhead light operation. The fans for...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    The Colorado Legislator tabled everything not finalized when they got back from the COVID 19 "stay at home orders" to work on a bunch of new stuff that due to political issues of the times had more priority. The Legislator is now closed for 2020. So, hopefully next year we get to ether start...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    wyowillys46 is correct the issue is 1981 and newer needing 17 digit vin numbers. Vehicles originally designed and used by the military only have serial numbers and most don't come close to 17 digits in Colorado. Now the rub is 1981 and newer and the fact the AM General put that letter out that...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I have some info about this topic, It seems AM General desided to send letters to all the government entities in charge of the States DMV about road worthiness of military vehicles being auctioned off and by other means finding there way into the hands of individuals. That these vehicles were...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    rodent, in the picture of your title, the second position indicates to the DMV that it started life as a "Military" vehicle the "G" is only used for special built government vehicules. GSA buys off the shelf cars and trucks but the vin numbers are basically nurmal. So right now if you go in to...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I have not heard anything as of today. The MVCC understands the entire topic in the state on the issue. You can bet all kinds of folks are seeing what is being put here and on other "open" sites. It can be good but it can also make things very difficult too. My posts on this topic were from the...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I understand the profiling thing but all cops think that all motor vehicles on the road need a license plate posted on them so getting pulled over for not having one in my circumstances and thoughts is not profiling just not knowing all the laws on the books. In Colorado just a couple years back...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    What makes this topic even more complex is in the state of Colorado if the Former Military Vehicle has all the correct markings presented as a Historical Military Vehicle the vehicle is not required to place the plates on them. They must be with them and "if a peace officer inquires or asks to...

    WY/CO Chapter

    SgtMajHarper, You are right the bill passed both chambers with only one absent vote, all other votes came in yes for the bill. The Governor does not sign it, there is just the required time line from the last day of the session that it gets put into the books. I believe sometime early August...

    Dual Circuit Brake Engineering Thread

    I've been following this topic for some time now and there is a lot of good information. I started a thread titled "M35a3 schematics" after searching and not finding any. I found what I was looking for in the TM. Should have started there, kicking myself on that one! Anyway, I put copies of the...
