I do have a question. You stated you did all the underside painting. Do you do any kind of sand blasting? I have a 1986 M1009 that I would like to paint the underside but there is a fair amount of surface rust. Thank you for your time.
I replaced the inner fenders on my M1009. When I removed the old passenger side one, I noticed how accessible the fuel pump was, so I replaced it. I would suggest it would be a good time to replace your fuel pump if original. Just a suggestion.
I had the same issue with my 86 M1009 it had a push button and hard starting problems. Do you have a GP contoller card? If so you can look at getting the wiring back to stock, then you can use the TM's to diagnose your issue. I suggest printing out the wiring diagrams and see what has been done...
What does that 4 mean? I have a 4 on my right fender as well. The best I can tell my M1009 came from a National Guard unit in Indiana. The bumper number/marking is "38 38 MSB". I think the MSB may stand for Medical Support Battalion". Thanks.
