    CA 24v air compressors

    EDIT: There have been several people interested in shipping these. Unfortunately the units are fairly bulky and would probably have to be shipped on a pallet, or disassembled and packed into boxes. Currently these are available for pickup only, but I will try to look into what it would take to...

    M1009 Rear Seat Belts

    Its for an M1009, so I'd prefer the original burgundy color if you have them. The blue was just a reference picture since I don't have the M1009 parts anymore. But I'll buy whatever color you have and be grateful, since I haven't been able to find these anywhere and I do need to have working...

    M1009 Rear Seat Belts

    I need the outside seat belt pieces from an M1009. Mine were damaged, and I don't consider them to be safe (have been repeatedly bent and the metal piece is torn). See image (from a civilian K5), I need these on both sides. Would need them shipped to zip code 90247, or I can pick up from the...

    M1009 Wont Warm Up

    Haha ok. This is not a solution I am going to implement, though I appreciate your suggestion 🙂

    M1009 Wont Warm Up

    Thanks for all the input so far. With the engine off and cold, I can spin the fan easily by hand. I assume this means the clutch is not locked up? The engine starts and runs well for what it is, so I don't think I want to just pull it out blindly. I'll purchase a diesel compression tester...

    M1009 Wont Warm Up

    Well, I am not sure what to try from here. I just replaced my thermostat for the second time with another Delco 132-55 (GM 14077122), and the truck still will not warm up above 160F. I have a Vintage Air system with a block off valve in the heater circuit, so there is no flow through the...

    M1009 back glass binding

    Well, I'm not proud of this. I dont necessarily know if it was the "correct" fix, but I took the glass and felt seals out again tonight and used a prybar to increase the size of the opening at the top of the gate by ~1/8". Its an not noticeable to the eye, and the only way to tell is to...

    M1009 back glass binding

    The replacement track felt is manufactured by Precision. Part number GRP 1130 76. It is a good fit and easy to install, very similar to the original factory material, and costs $30 for both sides since you reuse the original metal tracks. https://www.prp.com/product/detail/352267 I removed the...

    M1009 back glass binding

    Thanks for your reply. What is a "lower sash guide"? Is it just the tab on the end of the sash, or is there a separate component that goes there? The side tracks are the original parts, with the flocked lining replaced with new material from Precision. The glass still binds with the sash...

    M1009 back glass binding

    I have an '86 K5 with a manual tailgate window. Back in April the window bound up due to a rusted through sash and the pot metal "clutch" that couples the handle to the regulator broke. I used that as an excuse to go through it, and cleaned and greased the regulator, replaced the rollers...

    Source for fiber washers/insulators in alternator

    The PEEK washers from McMaster arrived, and fit nicely. I prefer to use original parts where possible, but these will be as good of an insulator as the original parts and should last for many decades. As a follow up question, neither of my original alternators had a resistor across the...

    Source for fiber washers/insulators in alternator

    I am trying to rebuild a failed alternator on my M1009, and an having a hard time fining the parts. I bought 2 "rebuild kits" which were allegedly for isolated ground 27SI alternators and specifically listed the M1008/M1009 as compatible applications, but they are missing a lot of critical...

    Nostalgic Air Brackets and Turbo

    Hi, Has anyone installed the Nostalgic Air A/C compressor brackets along with a 6.5 turbo swap? I have parts from a 6.5 TD in storage to install in the future, but they are out of state so I can't measure anything. I am in the middle of an A/C swap and am trying to decide between the...

    Crankshaft pulley options for 6.2 diesel

    I'm getting ready to add AC to my m1009, and figuring out where to mount the compressor. I will be keeping the 24v charging system and adding a 6.5 turbo in the future, so the plan is to build a bracket to hang the compressor under the driver side alternator. I had been planning to use the four...

    M1009 Front Battery Voltage Lower than Rear

    I dont think so, but I will double check anyway. Also these checks were performed after driving ~15 min, so would you expect the battery to be recharged by then?

    M1009 Front Battery Voltage Lower than Rear

    Hey all, M1009 with the factory dual alternator setup. Truck starts and runs fine. Batteries were replaced a couple months ago, as the old ones were wearing out. They were in it when I bought it and served me well for ~3 years. Now the front battery voltage is a bit lower than the rear and...

    M1009 Passenger Alternator short to ground

    I connected the batteries back up on my M1009 this morning, after the truck had been sitting for several weeks for axle rebuilds. When I connected the rear battery I got a small spark, which I assumed was due to a light I had left on or something. When starting the engine the GEN2 light stayed...

    What to do while changing rear main

    The leak went from fairly small to very large when I put it back together, so I'm thinking it's gotta be something I messed up. I also use permatex Right Stuff. Best sealer out there. Wheich 4 corners did you use it on?

    What to do while changing rear main

    So I finally changed the rear main, and I messed something up. Before it was leaking a drop or two after a long drive, but now I have a major dripping leak from the back of the bellhousing after only running the engine for a couple minutes. I followed the directions per the -34 TM, but clearly...
