    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    After looking at the CUCV forum for the last few days I feel compelled to go out and do something to raise the morale here. Even if I clean the non existing windshield spotless I will get something done. I do have wheels and tires to install back on the truck and with the pouring rain that may...

    What to do while changing rear main

    I remembered I had pictures of changing the rear main seal in terminus M1009. I hope this helps. I done a lot of work on Terminus m1009 and I used it very hard off road. I tested it many times over. Very few failures. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/terminus-m1009.144523/page-10

    What to do while changing rear main

    Thank you. I would not replace the oil pump either. Most times I work on paying customers vehicles and they want them out on the road running and the less cost that is involved in the repairs the happier they are. When you open up engines you could just go wild and replace everything. But in a...

    What to do while changing rear main

    Then No I would not disturb the front seal. It is easy enough to replace if it does leak, And as mentioned it can be changed without pulling the timing cover. Do as you wish. I wanted to just let you know that it is better to let things work than tear into them to fix things that are not broken...

    What to do while changing rear main

    In my opinion. If the rear main seal is leaking change it and the front main seal. I have had the same CUCV vehicles for years. I live by if it ain't broke, don't fix it. What's the meaning of the phrase 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'? If something is working adequately well, leave it alone...

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    Like I mentioned. They are all about the same at this time. Someone told me NAPA had better ones. I bought the NAPA ones and they were just Dorman's with the NAPA sticker over top. Same as A C Delco. they all fit and work. Short of getting others made up I would set sail with the available...

    Upper hose where it meets the engine. That 2 bolt flanged housing is the thermostat housing. Use care when extracting the 2 - 15 mm hex bolts. Sometimes the aluminum threads come out with the bolts. Good Luck and Please report back.

    windshield wiper motor ?

    When it comes to a CUCV you always buy parts for a 1984 model K 5 Blazer or a K30 pickup. You can buy a new one at Autozone. Plug and play. takes about 15 minutes to R & R. Good Luck. They are all imports. I done a side by side comparison. Bottom line it fits and it works. Warranted for as long...

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    My attempt to assist 82Kbody has been met with unknown violations on my part. For that I am sorry. It was an attempt to assist with a common oil cooler issue. In the future I will just post the same pictures w/o reference to my other post. I will rewrite the information as best I can to assist...

    Do you know the part number for the Power Steering and Alternator mounting studs?

    The lower bracket missing is the root of most broken cracked Power Steering brackets. I made a few of the #10 part. And I have a few of the # 9 part. Without these brackets holding that main bracket steady it is just a matter of time before the main bracket fails again. If it is a vehicle you...

    Do you know the part number for the Power Steering and Alternator mounting studs?

    Looks have no bearing on the usefulness and the functionality of a specific part. If it works hold the belt tight and allows you to stay mobile is all that matters. You do have the lower bracket in place? Just checking. Good Luck.
