    Yes it is a direct replacement. It is the original fan used on the civi models. I installed one on my M1028A1. It works very well.

    Replacing the CV Axles

    Losen the bolts before you lift the tire. If you need to. Jack up the tire and rotate it to reach the other bolts. Then lower it back to the ground to break them free. Then lift up the truck, remove the tire and finish up the job.

    Cucv roof rusted through

    Jason, there is a auto resto/custom shop on decker prairie close to the dentist office. Drive it there and see if they want to do it. If not there are a lot of auto restoration shops in Houston. This would be right up a resto shops alley. If that doesn’t work bring it to AZ it won’t rust any...

    Oil Flow Direction for Gauge

    Mike, according to diagram 2-35 in the GM 6.2 manual. The lower port is the pressure side to the cooler. And just a word of advice. Don’t restrict this flow in any way. You will starve the engine for COOLED oil. The diagram also shows there is a bypass valve on this line. In the Block. If the...

    Parade - pulling float...unplug fan control????

    Not so much for the engine, as you should do it for the tranny. Drawing air across the cooler at all times will help keep the tranny from warming up from the slow speeds.

    FM100 TOP LOAD filter?

    I've had a few 6.5's over the years. You will want to lube/grease the threads in the plastic ring. If not you will struggle to get it off when you need to replace the filter. Also lube/grease the lip where the plastic ring contacts the boss on the filter.

    Vibration issues

    Even though you have not shifted into four wheel drive, the front shaft will normally turn while driving. Although it will turn at a much slower speed. Check you front hubs to make sure they have disconnected. Even though the may be in the free position. Try turning the yoke at the front diff...

    Hummer 12 bolt beadlock ?

    Thanks, Those sockets are pretty pricey. Between $175 and $250. I ended up using a 19mm deep well impact socket from harbor freight. It was $3.99. I used a mini sledge hammer to drive it on. It was a pretty tight fit. Then a break over bar and got them off. Fastenal has the nuts in the...

    6.5 to 6.2 parts interchangeability?

    If the truck is stock it will have a 4L80 transmission behind the 6.5. Not a 700R4. NDT is correct the turbo heads for the hummer/van models have a different angle for the intake bolts. Along with a turbo mounting port on the block for the oil feed and return on the turbo. All other parts are...

    There are 24Volt inverters out there. I got a used one a few years back that is a 3000W. Its can easily run my 8000BTU window unit I have for the sliding rear window of my 1028. My window unit is only 850W. I wired it to the 24V buss on the firewall behind the batteries. I mounted the inverter...
