    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    I attempted to work in the shop Monday and Tuesday after sweating at work for 10 hours. It never happened in the shop. I retired to the A/C and cleaning up a downed tree on the property. I can never escape the tree issues. Unless I cut them all down. I have enough firewood split and stacked for...

    Here We Go Again Low Voltage M1009

    I agree on the ground wire. Add another ground cable and try that. The ground from the right rear engine top to negative buss bar. Check all the grounds. Good Luck. And I know you did this. But starters do go bad and it helps to check how much amperage the starter is pulling when engaged...

    This may be a simple as the windshield is not wet and the wipers are squeegeed fast to the smooth wiper plane area of the windshield. Add some water to the glass with a hose and try that. Have someone spray the hose on the glass and you sit inside and run the wipers. Laugh. But give it a try...

    Ebay Aluminum Radiator Installation

    Before you say all is over I want to share my experience. I had this old lifted M1009 dropped off for many repairs and I wanted to share the radiator experience. I had quoted a new radiator and ended up with a fraction of the cost and a repaired OEM radiator. Check it out. Good Luck. I think you...

    Refreshing Gunny the thread.

    It never ends. If you own and drive a CUCV you had better be ready to work on it. People are driving these CUCV's like they are 5 year old vehicles. They are approaching 40 years old. I was in high school in the late 70's. I don't recall seeing any late 30's, 40's and maybe 1 late 50's model...

    Refreshing Gunny the thread.

    The rear 4 body bolts are nothing fancy. They are just 1/2" carriage bolts. Do you still have your fuel tank out? Check out my thread on the decade wrecked M1009. I've seen fire and I've seen pain, I seen rusty bushings I thought would never bend. The beating of bolts I thought would never end...

    Ebay Aluminum Radiator Installation

    How does that work? I thought the whole idea was that the coolant in the radiator provided cooling for all the fluids (oil, atf) Just adding more hoses and more connections and the add on oil cooler is just adding for problem areas to deal with. Seems to me it worked all these years and parts...

    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    Well, the end of the day has come quickly. I sweated out a few gallons of water. I didn't get everything sanded but I did manage to get a lot done. The cowl screen with the tan 686 CARC was a showstopper. I did get over 1/2 of the things sanded and cleaned. I left the big stuff for another day...

    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    I am back in after spending time getting all the parts gathered together. I have a shortage of a few parts. Nothing to affect this current build but a few that I am low on. The upper grille trim that attaches to the radiator support is a hard item to find clean undamaged. I have a few with minor...

    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    Today I am going out to gather up all the attaching parts that get painted 383 green only and can be painted before final assembly. That is one of the most time-consuming times as I must hand sand and examine each part carefully, so I am sure to get proper adhesion and appearance of the finished...

    Plastic and aluminum CU850, in a warehouse in Jersey for the poultry sum on $1700.:sick:🤮 Come on SSDVC it's paltry not poultry. That just makes it sound fowl the way you worded it.

    Remember that old rusty M101 parts trailer I had. It relives in a different form. The center frame section is the m101 trailer frame and the dead give away is the small D rings. I am so happy that this piece was repurposed. I also gave him the set of LED lights to repurpose. This young man...

    Fuse block mystery

    CUCVRUS Repair Projects | Page 17 | SteelSoldiers I have completed this job many times on melted fuse connections. Once I completed the in line fuse replacement and I had tight connections the problem went away forever. Good Luck.

    How well do the brakes on your cucv work?

    I researched this and this is what I found. Duralast Remanufactured Brake Power Booster 52-7248 (autozone.com) This is listed for the K5 Duralast Brake Power Booster 52-7307 (autozone.com)This is listed for the K30 So I guess they are different and when I ordered parts I just ordered them for...

    “The Bitterness of Poor Quality Remains Long After the Sweetness of Low Price is Forgotten” I explain this as to why I use Line X as my interior liner and why sometimes money is the only tool to get a job done correctly and the sting hurts at first but the infection of poor quality can be fatal...
