    Issues Starting MEP-005

    I have an issue where my MEP-005 will not start. Backstory: Generator ran fine up until around 3 weeks ago when I accidentally ran it out of fuel. Since then after refilling the tank with fuel, the generator will not start. I am getting fuel to the injectors and smoke from the exhaust, but the...

    M1031 Build Thread

    I’m starting this build thread to keep myself reminded of what I’ve done to the vehicle and plans I have for the vehicle. When I can, I try to help people on this site with their vehicles, and one of the best ways I have learned how to do something for my military vehicles is simply observing...

    Blackout Drive Light

    I have a problem with my blackout drive light. It is in my CUCV II, but from everything I have seen in comparison to my other vehicles it is a very similar setup as a CUCV I. In blackout lights "on" and b.o. drive "on", I am getting no voltage to the B.O. drive light. All the other b.o. side...

    Generator fault, need help.

    Need help. Need to get back running because power is out. The generator was running fine and when I looked outside at the panel I saw 160 volts on each phase. Turned off the output and now it won't put out any voltage. The "LOW FUEL/STOPPED" warning light is on. The fuel is not low and is full...

    Any way to tell differential gear ratio without removing the cover?

    Is there any way to tell what gear ratio the differentials are without dropping the covers? I thought they were stamped on the side, but I can't find it. This is on a 1994 M998A1. Need to know the ratio for programming my transmission computer.

    Questions about the Electronic Speedometer and Voltage Regulator

    I am finishing up my 4L80E swap in one of my HMMWVs. I currently have two questions after everything is done. I installed an electronic speedometer, harness, and sending unit. Everything is working, but the speed, according to the GPS on my phone, is off by 10 MPH too high, ie. showing 70 MPH...

    Transmission Light Issue

    Hello all, I have a M1025A2 HMMWV that has had an issue with the transmission light since I received it. The problem is that the transmission light is illuminated after the vehicle is turned off. This leaves the TCM on and eventually kills the batteries. Once the vehicle is turned on, the...

    Problem with quick disconnect fan clutch

    I have a 2001 M1123 that I have been doing some work to. I disconnected the fan clutch yesterday and I can't get it to reconnect. Seems like it just needs to go 1/8" more to snap on. Any tips/tricks to get it back on? There's much less room to get my hands in to reconnect it than on a v belt engine.

    Has anyone ever used Centramatics on the m1009 CUCV? If so, what model number did you use? The one's on my HMMWV work well so I'm thinking of getting a set for my blazer.

    Looking for a Wire Number

    Does anyone know the wire number for the horn where it plugs into the light switch? I was half asleep last night when I was wiring my backup lights and tapped into 40 instead, which is the panel lights.

    Proof is in the pudding, a rear front hydraulic winch

    I have always wanted a rear winch on this HMMWV because I use it as a work vehicle around the farm, hauling branches, trees, etc. and a rear winch cable would be very useful. I was lucky to pick up a front milemarker winch for very cheap near me. I wanted to be somewhat military correct when I...

    M1009 Pioneer Kit

    I installed this Pioneer Kit in my M1009. Robbed the tools from my HMMWV kit that I don't use any more. Came brand new in the box and was originally designed for a m35. Bolted in and I think it looks stock.

    "Rod Hall" GMV Suspension

    I picked up this M1025A2 from the recent GoDove auction. EUC wait time was 3 months. 2 of those months, the agent that signs the EUCs was on vacation. This was a special forces GMV that was upgraded. The shocks on this are nitrogen charged remote reservoirs. They're about 2-3x the size of stock...

    Glow Plug Relay Voltage

    I believe there is a problem with my glow plug system. When starting, it takes around two revolutions of the engine before the engine starts. Is this normal? I assume it should act like my HMMWVs and start on the first revolution. Then again, my Ram 2500 takes around two revolutions to start...

    Seeking TMs and Advice on Nordic ECU Install

    I just purchased two 36,000btu Nordic ECUs to cool and heat my motor pool. By my calculations I only need around 60,000btu so 72,000btu will be more than enough. I am powering it off of my MEP-005A so I will have 3 phase. I know how to wire it but I can not find the TM for it online. Does anyone...
