    Humvee cooling issue

    Looks like you're on the right track for getting it sorted out. If you decide to replace the radiator, Champion makes a nice aluminum radiator that fits the TD rig. There are some threads here on the site about it. Once you have it sorted out, it's my understanding we should run fleet diesel...

    Hmmwv problem starting

    Agree with others to check your glow plugs resistance. It's not hard, and they are relatively easy to reach. Make sure the connections are solid, they can lose their spring and not fasten to the top of the glow plugs well. While it does sound like a glow plug issue, you didn't mention your fuel...

    Anyone tried OM606 engine in Hmmwv?

    Even at max tuning, a stock OM606 looks to be well below the Horsepower of a 6.5TD, based on WikiPedia details. An OM606 might fit, with enough jamming and adapters, but it might be a very slow ride. BDGR

    Turbo fan shroud

    Until you asked I didn't know there was a Turbo Shroud. My 1987 M998 has a 1990's era 6.5TD stuffed in it using the original cooling stack and we seem to be doing fine. BDGR

    Soft doors

    I made half doors a few years ago using frames from doors in that condition. I wasn't able to sell them much, so I'm not particularly interested, sorry, but someone might be for that use or another. Tip: They are reasonable to ship ($$) if you strip them and they can lie good and flat and...

    Is the humvee transfer case an open transfer case?

    The NP242 (most common HMMWV TC) allows selection of Locked and Unlocked differentials. At highway speeds we run in High (unlocked), off road we put it in High Lock or Low (which is locked). It does produce TC binding to run on clean pavement/flat ground with the TC locked, and the tech manual...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Mikemike, I have moved twice since my last productions, but am finally catching up and mostly unpacked and set up. I could not find a good manufacturer to sell my designs to, all turned me down. Now that I am caught up, and 'baby' always needs parts money, I plan to resume making kits this...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    If someone nearby has access to an old school radiator shop that can boil it out and reseal it, then yes it has value. If not, there isn't much I guess it'd be good for. Maybe some scrap value, but again that's if local services take them in. BDGR

    Hmmwv Fuel Issue after IP replacement

    You didn't mention that you bled the injectors. This is always a good idea after making changes to the fuel system. They can trap air and cause symptoms such as you describe. BDGR
