    Patracy's deuce refresh and upgrade

    I think the plan will be this. First I'm going to weld up the mounts for the steering assist cylinder. Once that's on, I can still drive the truck even if it's not plumbed up. The next task will be mounting the steering servo. Again, another task that once done, can be driven without being...

    Fuel Injection Pump Slow Drip -- Anything to Try Before Removing the Pump?

    Yeah, unfortunately it needs to be rebuilt. You can try stop gaps like adding some oil to the fuel to thicken it up. But there's nothing that will fix a dried up/leaking seal.

    time for a new starter. need some advice please.

    I'm not sure if the starter bracket is available. I know there's two starters and two styles of braces/brackets. I know one the the brackets can still be had. The other however can't. But they're rather simple in nature. You can easily make one from a small piece of angle iron and a drill...

    I replied with some pointers. I doubt it'll be read though.

    Patracy's deuce refresh and upgrade

    The candy smasher made it back to the shop today. So now the fun of building power steering, upgrading the brakes, and stuff I want to upgrade/address begins! Man look at that paintwork @Spot_ll did.

    Remote start

    Oh yeah, another point no one has mentioned. Neutral. The 5 speed trucks certainly don't have a neutral indicator. Nor is there any sort of easy way to make that happen. The autos wouldn't be as hard though.

    Remote start

    The controller damage itself if shutdown isn't achieved. I very much don't want a engine running without some means of shutdown in the event there's no/low oil pressure. The only audible indicator would be when it's already too late.

    Remote start

    I wouldn't see that happening. But again, if you start the truck and it has no oil pressure, it's going to keep on running. Until it doesn't run....

    Remote start

    Most controllers have a shut down function as well to time out or in the event there's no oil pressure.

    Remote start

    On the older multifuels, deuces, maybe a few of the 809 series trucks (I can't remember) they use a physical pull lever to stop the engine. You can cut power on them and the engine will continue to run.

    Remote start

    Older trucks have a pull stop lever.

    Remote start

    There are 24v remote start kits out there. The problem on the older trucks would be the engine stop.

    Differential options

    The HMMWV uses torsen diffs. While they're not as good as a locker, they're way better than a open diff or a limited slip diff. You can use the brakes to modulate the diffs when they start spinning to apply power to the wheels that still have grip. Outside of that, there's the auburn gear...

    M939 P2P Program On SS

    The first URL to the TMs we host here has the software still. I just downloaded it and ran it here on a windows 10 machine without any issue.

    Saracen or ferret lockout hubs

    Also, at least for the ferret, it's a bad idea to run on just 2 hubs/bevel boxes. People have pulled the shafts and later regretted it when they blew a bevel box or planetary.
