    Vaccum pump for 6.2l

    yes, unbolt the pod, and it will bolt right up to the stalk from the 6.2's those actually work better than the stock ones, since they pump on both strokes, not one as the stock ones do the output nipple is also angled to the side a bit, which helps clear the air cleaner better also, all in...

    Floor jack storage

    Another idea someone may find useful, behind the spare tire, was a lot of wasted space, made a little "shelf" that bolted to the larger bolts holding down the tire carrier, one on the wheel tub and one on the floor.

    Weird electrical issue

    Something I ran into yesterday, that is to say is very weird. I have a 1986 M1009, it has been converted to 12v system. Installed a USB charger port, and a aux cig lighter port.
