    Wiper options

    I have a deuce that was equipped with the electric wiper modification. I say was because someone "midnight requisitioned" said wiper system while the truck was in GL's possession. I thought I saw a thread about what civilian electric wipers will basically fit the existing holes. I checked...

    M1009 possessed by Satan still won't start

    Today I went five rounds with this wretched imp of Beelzebub and again it defies me. I've gotten advice from several members here :recovry4x4::gimp2: and I thank them for putting up with my incessant carping. I've narrowed the problem down to the fuel solenoid shutoff that is inside a cover on...

    Fuel tank FUBAR

    I just discovered that the fuel tank on the CUCV I have is rusted beyond repair. My first clue was when it wouldn't start due to lack of fuel after having topped it off a few weeks ago. It stays on the farm and is driven very little. I noticed I often smelled fuel when I was around it but it was...
