    York 210 on board air mount, pics

    Well....1 pic anyway. Gonna mount this York 210 to the CUCV. I plan to put AC in this truck eventually. Which will tie up passenger side. So drivers side looks like the best place to do a York mount. This will be for running an impact wrench or airing up tires offroad. Nothing crazy. I have...

    M1009 dust proofing

    How many here have completely re sealed their M1009's with new weatherstripping and seals? The 09 absolutely choked everyone on the last trail ride with fine dust. I resealed the tailgate and have a new LMC carpet kit front and rear. The dust still seems to pour in the front windows. So if...

    M1009 rear tailgate glass, they supposed to go all the way down?

    I have no other trucks to compare to. My M1009 rear glass sticks up about 2 or 3 inches when fully down. That doesn't seem right, as it's too easily susceptible to damage when loading, sitting on the tailgate, etc. So something aint right with mine. I deem the regulator non original to the...

    Cool tool for installing tight belts

    The driver side alternator belt is often a bear to get on (if it's the proper size anyway). I found this tool. Looks like it would make the job a breeze. Thought i'd pass this on to fellow CUCV owners. I'm not affiliated with Amazon or Lisle...

    Shocked by CUCV battery hold down bracket

    I was just replacing some fuel return lines on the 6.2, passenger side. Wet salty shirt and skin, leaned over enough to get a nice little buzz on my arm and chest when I came in contact with the battery hold down bolts. Not the posts themselves. Curious as to how I could be feeling voltage from...

    Resealed my injection pump, stalling issue.

    I'll try to keep this short. Posted on 2 other boards, with no replies. Does anyone know if the throttle shaft can be installed on the min-max gov linkage incorrectly? I know the top cover of the Db2 pump itself can be installed on the wrong side of the gov linkage (causing a run away) but this...

    Is this a GEP Navistar block?

    The block in my M1009 has the dots in the intake valley like a lot of the GEP produced motors. But it lacks the Navistar diamond in the intake valley. I'm thinking it's a transition block made by GM just before they handed the reigns over to Navisar. Are there any 6.2 nerds here who can...

    DIY air bleed screw for filter changes

    Can a guy TEE in a petcock on the output side of the firewall filter where it goes to the injection pump? Sort of a cheap DIY air bleed valve to work in conjunction with the spin on filter and electric lift pump upgrade most of us do. Should work in theory correct? Being that is is the highest...

    Traded M1009 for this Deuce

    I finally got my first Multifuel. Always wanted one. Even came with 395's and cargo cover. It runs great, no issues. But I'm parking it until I have time to be more thorough on brakes and fluids. It does have some oil leaks. Most appears to be from the cannisters. It looks like the steering...

    Cleaned fuse box on M1009, shorted out glow plug system.

    I am an idiot. While I had the fuse block apart on the firewall I forgot to disconnect the batteries. I took a wire brush to the connections to go and clean then and poof got a few light sparks. Anyway, since I did that my GP relay no longer cycles on and the wait light doesn't come on. I've...

    Stereo in the M1009, I hear my engine in my speakers!

    So I finally slapped the stereo system in the M1009. The power is coming from the diamond shaped 12V supply on the firewall. I also have a cigarette lighter socket under my dash that feeds from the same 12v supply, I use it for small 12v stuff and charging my phone for trips. The stereo...

    Fugly M1009 gets a new home

    I found this locally for $1300. This morning we met, nice man. I spent an hour with him and the SS app on my phone getting the battery wires cleaned up and repaired which were a corroded frayed mess. Once that was squared away it fired right up and purred. It's been painted rustoleum hunter...
