    Rebuilding after 15 years of storage

    If I were you I would leave the Gimmy as-is and use it. Then find and rebuild a 6.2 or 6.5 engine for the CUCV. Just my 2 cents..............

    M1007 - CUCV Suburban Clone Build Thread

    Thanks for posting. I watched every video. Quite an adventure! Sounds like the Cowdog did good. Regarding brakes, an upgrade is on my list as well. I've already installed rear discs and removed the load equalizer. The truck stops on a dime going forward or backward, even when wet. But I...

    Versions of HMMWV Tachometers

    I ran a separate wire from the negative buss on the firewall to the negative screw on the tach. Worked like a charm.

    Mounting an AC compressor on stock 6.2?

    My Vintage Air unit ain't gonna die. Hail it probably won't ever be turned on. o_O

    Mounting an AC compressor on stock 6.2?

    Yes that is what I did also. In my opinion the Vintage Air kit is much nicer and more efficient than the Nostalgic unit. I haven't completed installation yet, so I (and many others) will be eager to see photos of your installation. Thanks for posting.

    Mounting an AC compressor on stock 6.2?

    Sounds like you have it figured out. Remember to post photos and processes to assist other SS members.

    Mounting an AC compressor on stock 6.2?

    The company that produced the A/C brackets for Vintage Air was Component Parts Inc. in Ft. Worth TX. In my dealings with them, I got the impression that they were a small, family owned & operated business with no exit strategy. Herb & Lillian (I forgot their last name) owned the company and I...

    Rebuilding after 15 years of storage

    So I take it you gave up on the P400?

    Rebuilding after 15 years of storage

    When you go to mount the inner fuel neck housing you will need to modify the right side of the housing in order for the door hinge to clear. You will also need to drill a new 9/32" hole in the sheet metal in order to mount the housing to the fender. See attached. Hope this helps.

    Kinda got carried away..... M1028 rebuild

    I have a substantial amount of engineering time involved in the development of the cluster. Because of that, I would prefer to simply sell the finished cluster and possibly the prototypes, which are fine except they are produced from aluminum instead of steel. Send me a PM with your exact...

    Kinda got carried away..... M1028 rebuild

    Sorry to take so long to reply. Been crazy busy on honey-do projects. I have a couple of those clusters left over if you are interested. I had originally designed the cluster for six gauges (tach, oil pressure, water temperature, oil temperature, fuel pressure, and transmission temperature)...

    M1007 - CUCV Suburban Clone Build Thread

    Thanks for your posts and videos. My completely stock 6.2 cranks perfectly and runs best & strongest with the timing advanced the thickness of the line like you have your M1009 set. When I install the supercharged P400, well, setting that timing will be an adventure in itself. I will start...

    700R4 transmission in a HMMWV

    Mr. TOBASH; Respectfully, I must ask - are you an experienced diesel mechanic? I've been fooling with these things since 1969 and installing turbochargers on diesels since 1985. While I do not claim to be an expert, I have learned a great deal from my experiences over the years. I have owned...
