    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    I got the chance to try fit the body today, I have it set at a little under 3" of body lift, I had ordered 2" pucks but that may have been a little over optimistic. The fitting on top of the turbo is pretty darn close to the cowling and I have the plate off that covers the defroster duct...

    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    While trial fitting the fuel tank it was obvious the tank and I were not on the same page as far as the cross member goes, so I had to do a little clearance work, I also added the top mount which was planned from the beginning, the other side got the same top mount or "gusset" if you will. I am...

    stock vs variable rate springs

    Does anyone have the part numbers or application of the "later" model lower control arms. are they the same as the lower front arms of the later vehicles? I think they are 2530014208634 and 2530014207895 and it looks like they are used in the front also, wonder where I can get a pair of these?

    Wheel side front passenger hub leaking

    The preload on the spindle bearings are measured with a torque wrench, to get the torque correct IMHO you must remove the half shaft so you may as well replace the upper seal at that time, you will also be able to inspect the lower bearings and can "feel" how the upper bearings are if you remove...

    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    OK so I got the engine set into the chassis today, I decided to give the mount adapters made by Hi Tech Classics a try, they basically adapt the Duramax to the three hole mounts used on just about all GM vehicles in the 80s-90s,,, More or less, some adjustments will need to be made, but at $80...

    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    I cannot make any comments on emissions stuff, I have not researched enough to know what can be deleted when installing a newer engine in an older vehicle. Yes the stack will be a challenge and I have not found an intercooler yet. I hope to stab the power pack tomorrow and see how the motor...

    How not to install a Duramax in a M998

    Well hopefully this will not be the epitaph for this project, I thought a thread with the progress and possible pitfalls that lay ahead might be interesting to someone, constructive criticism, hints and comments from actual experience will be of course welcome. Some of this has been told before...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    I got a start on my M998 #2 Duramax project, a few hours Sat, and a couple more yesterday and the body came right off with no problems, I am REALLY happy with the donor M998 I picked up, the motor was toast as the air horn had been left off for God knows how long (got 4 gallons of water out of...

    Body removal

    Thanks, looks like strapping it to the B pillar will give it some support, now I am off to look for a short swivel 15/16 to get to that dang left front mount...

    Body removal

    I was told the rear of the body needs to be supported, is this true? if so can it be strapped to the B pillar?

    Body removal

    Is there a TM that includes body removal? So far my observations are, remove all the hoses from the power steering/brake booster and fan control, unbolt master cylinder so it will stay with the chassis, unbolt all the cables from the starter, remove the stack mounts for the front harness and...

    Anybody titled a HMMWV in Texas lately

    On the HMMWV in TEXAS it makes a big deference if the GVWR is over 10K, under 10K even with the "off road only" stamp license plates are unrestricted. Over 10K looks like a problem, so advise stay away from the "Heavy Variant" Here is the pertinent part of the law.. ""DETAILS HB 1755 adds...
