    Stock trans is the TH400, obviously someone must have put the OD trans in there to offset the low geared axle swap.

    Fuel pump replacement time, got a hose question

    Thanks for that. I'd say great minds think alike, but you might not want to be associated with what's in my head. :p Couldn't find the Corvette S hose easily in-stock, many places had a lead time on shipping. Ordered one of those universal molded a few days ago, hopefully it'll do the job...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Got in a HW glowplug card tonight, so slapped it in. No more humming/buzzing underdash, but i do kinda wish i had set it to solid wait light vs flashing. Not sure i care enough to weasel under the dash again for it though. Also got in an Ebay suburban jack setup, so i have a passably stock...

    Fuel pump replacement time, got a hose question

    Noticed a small wet spot in the parking lot & my formed fuel hose is looking swollen & damp, so time to start the process. Ordered in the Delphi 906 pump & adapter plate gasket a few moments ago. Is the pre-formed 3/8 fuel hose available or do i HAVE to loop some straight hose around? If i...

    Crank, No start after new injectors... and other maladies.

    It's an 80 chevy but even saying THAT, no a burning smell when you try to start it is not normal. Unless you're talking from the exhaust? Perhaps you best specify where the smoke & burning is coming from. :p

    Replacement jack suggestions for M1009

    Hmm thanks for that suggestion. Since the stock jack mounts under the pass seat IIRC, i'd never even thought about using some underhood space. I ordered a newer sub/tahoe jack setup off ebay, will look into where i can find a place for it there.

    Replacement jack suggestions for M1009

    None of my Blazers had the stock jacks in them & 80s Chevy's aren't exactly common in the local junkyards nowadays. Does anyone have suggestion for good replacement jack setups? Something self-contained w/ case, etc to keep random bits from rolling around & making noise would be a nice bonus...

    M1009 Turns over wont start/ Not getting fuel out of thumb nut at fuel filter..

    since you know you don't have fuel @ the filter trace the fuel lines back from there. Look for cracking or wet spots that could indicate leak or air getting into the system. Stock it doesn't have a pump in the tank, the mechanical fuel pump is on the front passenger side of the engine. Do you...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Installed a GM GF647 fuel filter system along with new Gates barricade hoses to & from the housing. Took a bit to get it mounted since the bolt holes on the housing were a little ways off from the stock bracket mounting holes. Found the PO had run 5/16 hose all the way to injector pump &...

    M1009 suddenly only crawls, eventually tops out at 35 MPH.

    I 2nd that. Since the shop suggested fuel filter, did you immediately change it? Also did you very recently fill up the tank before this occurred? Could you have gotten a batch of contaminated fuel that's mixed with what you already had in-tank & plugged up the works? Person could try a gas...

    Looking for wiring diag for Pos Term, Neg Term, Suppressor

    Your 3 big wires on the top 24V should be that black one i suspect is the battery cable, the other 2 should be 1 running forward to the slave port in the grill & then 1 running underneath & back to the radio bus inside the cabin by the back seat. Any other pics of the batteries, terminals...

    Looking for wiring diag for Pos Term, Neg Term, Suppressor

    Are you SURE about that? From the pic i suspect that wire on #5 post is the primary cable from the back battery & if so i really don't believe it should be hooked to the ground bar. BG: It's not much of an overall pic, but if you paid a shop too much money for that cabling as part of the...

    Axle u bolts need specs

    To make sure someone doesn't accidentally guide you wrong, you really need to tell us clearly which cucv you have & which axles you're intending to swap to.

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Man that took a bit of doing. Turns out the local Sutherlands & parts stores don't stock 9/16 & the local fastenal was all out of the length i needed. finally got grade 8 bolts, nuts, flat & lock washers @ the local farm center. Rear shocks are finally completed. Went to look at the front to...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    30R9 fuel line seems to come up as various brands 3/8 fuel line for fuel injection vehicles on Amazon. I picked up a set of rear shocks & started swapping them over only to find a PO possibly mixed standard & metric on the lower bolts/nuts? The bolts have a bad spot & even on a section of good...

    Oil seeping into dash

    Hydroboost brake system leak @ the pushrod? Should be easy to peek under dash & push on the brake pedal & watch for leakage. (wear safety glasses pls)

    Glow plug advice.

    The Glowplugs themselves are 12v. In a stock system GM configured a resistor on the back of the engine bay which took the 24v & stepped it down to 12 to go to the plugs. With that design any plug failure would cause the remaining plugs to receive more voltage & cause them to fail prematurely...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Took me a bit to get motivated but i finally replaced the wiper arms & blades to convert to newer Ford Bronco arms & 17" blades. The lisle puller worked excellent @ getting the old stuck arms off. Gave it careful wire brushing & a bit of anti-seize & the new arms slid on easily. While doing...

    85 K5 Blazer / 6.2 DIESEL / m1009

    Check around for a local-ish driveshaft shop? They can lengthen your supplied driveshaft & check it's balance too

    Odd M1028 bed

    Oh yes, sorry forgot about this one for a bit. Sadly while i still have a NOS drain tube in my parts bin from when i was thinking about converting my old m1009, it sadly doesn't have any part #s on it to help with search.
