    Fuels sending unit and sock filter

    My normally great running M1009 quit on me going down the road last week. Research on the forum has got me looking at the fuel sock in the tank. The sending unit started acting up about a year ago so this would seem to be a good time to replace the unit. . My local auto zone doesn't have much...

    Carb info

    So I am having a issue with a carb on one of my M37's , at the moment I think it's a float issue. But digging thru my parts I remembered I had a NOS carb. In the box was this paper work. I scanned it in my computer and thought I'd share it with who ever may need it. SEMPER FI !! Keith

    M939 Series Prices

    Back when these trucks were being sold at action the prices were fairly reasonable for a decent truck (4-5 yrs ago).. But here lately it seems they have exploded in value. This is not the way green stuff is designed to go, the more work and money you put in it the LESS it's worth. Some one...

    Love the M37

    I have a herd of these trucks...three that are rolling and one that will be soon as I have a frame off on it right now and a few that are going to be a project or a parts source for someone other than me. These I did a frame off on and sometime back. I have no "free" time as I seem to always be...

    M37 spark plugs

    What's going on with the price on the Autolite 2243's ? Maybe it's been a while since I have purchased new ones, as I still have several dozen put away, but they sure seem to have shot up in price. Or have I just woke up to the inflation of the hobby? SEMPER FI ! keith

    Another Hard start CUCV

    I have noticed my M1009 was getting harder to crank on cold ( for south Alabama) days. The relay on the fire wall made a sound like closing a squeeky door followed by a thump and the wait light would finally go out . If it made that sound I knew it would not start. Since it has been running...

    Air system question

    Picked up a M923A2 a few months back and I have noticed that as I have ran it to build air pressure it makes a loud honking sound , sounds like a pissed off goose, from underneath the truck. Sounds like it comes from the air dryer area . Only does it a few times during a half hour
