    OK. I will crack a fuel line at the pump and see if I am getting fuel when I crank as cattlerepairman suggested. cattlerepairman, Do you have a photo of the hex plug you are talking about? Thanks.

    When I open the petcock with just the the pump running I get about a 18" stream. If that helps.

    Sounds like I have more work to do. Just a quick summation. 1) In tank fuel pump works (I can hear it clearly) 2) Primary fuel filter changed and canister thoroughly cleaned of any gunk. 3) Secondary fuel filters changed and canisters thoroughly cleaned of any gunk. 4) When open, the petcock...

    UPDATE: Per post #9 I pulled the IP cover off and the Shut Off was at the 7:00 position and freely moved by finger pressure. There was a little fuel inside. No rust and the inside looked brand new. crank, crank crank. No start. Could it be electrical? Before I changed the filters and with a...

    Update. First the "flipper" I was referring to is actually on my John Deere tractor... Not on my deuce. Sorry. Today I changed the primary and secondary filters and cleaned the canisters. They were pretty bad! A little embarrassed. I cranked and cranked. Nothing. Then I opened the petcock...

    It has been so long since I have done this. Once I replace the filters do I have to prime the system with the little "flippers"? lol. Its been a while. I do remember the flippers being there but not exactly sure where they are (top or bottom). Thank you.

    Buying price

    I am a Deuce guy looking at getting into the HMMWV world. Naturally I am looking at the government auctions as I bought my Deuce years ago. My question is what is a "rough average" final selling price of the HMMWVs actually selling on the government auctions? I see they seem to start about...

    M37M35, It has been years since I have done this before. Should I open the bleeders when I turn the power on and before I crank to see if I am pumping fuel? I would think I can hear the tank pump when I power up by standing next to the tank. Thoughts? Thanks.

    kendelrio, Not at all. Thank you and no problem at all. So just because I am getting fuel to the petcock means I am getting fuel to the filters but not necessarily PAST the filters? Do I understand that correctly? Thank you.

    I have a M35a2 that has been in the barn for a while. It started last winter but when I tried to start it today she would not start. The batteries are charged and she turns over fine. When I fist hit the starter it pops over then dies and keeps cranking and cranking. I hit it with some ether and...

    Fuel tank crud..

    For the first time in years I decided to clean my tank and what i found is scary. There feels like about 1/4 inch of thick crud lining the bottom. I have a series of parades starting next weekend that my Deuce will be the star of the show and I would like to clean my tank really well (and never...

    Thanks for the tip. I'll take it out and flog it a little. Thank you.

    Lack of power

    Great ideas. Can I get to the fuel tank filter through the sending unit in the tank and do you have any suggestions on what I can use to kill anything growing in there or the tank? Thanks.

    Lack of power

    Today I took my Deuce out for a drive and noticed it had about half the power it should. It started fine and idled fine but the best I could get was about 1,500-1,600 RPMs in 5th gear on flat land. The fuel is old and I realized I have not changed the fuel filters in ages. The more I dove it...
