    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Not my humvee, came out of one I was working on. Military alt failed, swapped in civi alt, test run civi was not charging batteries so trouble shooting found bad start box and 7 out of 8 glow plugs bad. Put good start box in and alt was charging as it should. She put up a good fight.

    Humvee cooling issue

    Latest update, went on 20 mile test drive, speeds up to 55, temp never went above the little "flag" (temp symbol) on gauge, fan kicked on and off normally. Very happy now. Action I owe you a case of your favorite beverage :)

    Thank you, I figured $50 in product was worth it vs $500 for new shroud.

    So today I installed the correct fan on my 1152, ran her at about 1000 rpm for 40 min, temp went to mid green, tomorrow a test drive and we'll see if she got any better, next I'll fix the shroud.

    Humvee cooling issue

    DING DING DING Action wins with the wrong fan comment. I compared my 1152 6.5 TD to my 998 6.5 NA my 998 and my 1152 have the same fan installed. The 1152 has the 6.5 TD with surp belt and if I understand correctly the water pump turns the other way so fan blades should be opposite. The USMC...
