    Fuel System and air leaks

    Quick and dirty...truck quit under acceleration. replaced fuel pump and filter. Primed both but I seem to have air bubbles in the clear hose going into my water bottle I have for a catch and a little foam/air bubbles in the fuel going into the bottle. Can I hook a section of new fuel line to...

    Mechanical fuel pump replacement

    Reading some other threads you and others have committed on it dawned on me that on a Kubota I had a few years ago it quit running cold turkey under full power mowing because the fuel solenoid crapped out. It’s got a distinct “click” when it engages and disengages. Very much like this event...

    Mechanical fuel pump replacement

    Weather has killed outside for the day BUT....1st thing in the morning I’ll do just that. I’ve been reading some other threads about the IP so I can get an idea about what that project entails. See if it’s within my skill set. I’m more of a “ parts changer” with some mechanical abilities...

    Why did you elect to go with Oreilly’s ? Price difference? Time constraints ?

    Mechanical fuel pump replacement

    Well I tried to fire her up this morning and it was a no go. New pump and filter with no leaks at either. Unplugged the IP and primed both pump and filter. I did notice a big difference in the volume of fuel the new pump is moving compared to the old one. Filled a small water bottle about 3/4...

    Fuels sending unit and sock filter

    Pump installed today. I learned a few lessons and found that the left pump bolt is a pain with the tight clearance around the manifold. Good info you past along on the pump. I double checked to make sure I got the correct one. I think the one I took off was original to the truck. I compressed...

    Mechanical fuel pump replacement

    Just replaced mine today. Wish I had seen this thread sooner. Two questions, I took off the mounting plate to hold the push rod out of the way. The grease trick would have been nice To know. I saw some one use a Bent hacksaw blade to hold it up. 1st question, is there anyway this push rod can...

    Fuels sending unit and sock filter

    It had a strange pulsing in rpms on Start up but quit once the idle kicked down. I didn’t make but a 1/4 mile down the road when it stopped cold turkey under acceleration and just as it shifted into 2nd. Coasted to the side dead stick. It restarted with a little effort and quit again about 100...

    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...

    85 M1009 runs great, then wont restart

    Doing some research of the forum threads on this topic most seem to have a lack of power before it stopped. My M 1009 was under acceleration and just shifted into 2nd when it suddenly died . All my gen/oil lights came on and I lost power and coasted to a stop. Would a clogged fuel sock do that...

    85 M1009 runs great, then wont restart

    My normally great running M1009 did just about the same thing today. On start up on high idle it had a slight pulsing cycle that stopped when it kicked down. Going down the road it died just a half mile from the house. It restarted with some effort ..I drove 100 feet and it died again. No...

    X doors

    I did some trading with one of the Guard units about 2005...I had about $180 in all four doors . Wasn't that big a deal back then because of the number of trucks in private hands . Those folks who bought Humvee parts back before the surge of trucks on the market are the smart ones. They took a...

    X doors

    I cut loose a set I had about a year ago....they were 85-90% with great glass and seals. I put them out for $2400..they lasted about 48 hrs. I like my soft doors for the ease of on/off.. I let someone else hold on to the "cool" factor. SEMPER FI keith

    Oldest M37

    Latest MV mag that made it to my mail box yesterday has a article on the "oldest" M37 still running. With the info provided in the article I did the math on my oldest M37 (April-51) and it seems to be the 1450th vehicle off the line. Four months into production and they had over 1400 trucks...

    M37 ran fine for last years parades, this year, not so much

    ALL I run in my older trucks and small engine stuff is Non-eth. My older engines also get a lead additive to the fuel....helps with the valves from what I've been told. The kick in the butt is that the pump that went bad was 10 yrs old...with only 60 miles on it. I keep a vehicle log on each...
