    Hinge hood

    The doors also need hinge bushings. I am sure of that. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/1986-cucv-m1009-decade-after-being-wrecked.173878/page-11#lg=post-2161769&slide=1 I took a few pictures to show how to change the bronze door hinge/pin bushings. Good Luck. Make it happen. And adjusting...

    Hinge hood

    It is fully adjustable at the rear hinges to hood area. It is a bit sensitive to slight adjustment alone. But with 3 people it can be adjusted perfect. the rubber stops up front and the striker assembly will also help get everything in alignment. But everything on the cab and body must be...

    CUCVRUS Repair Projects

    I have a large box of replacement parts to reassemble the snow plow Voodoo M1009. Lots of work but I don't need to complete the truck till the snow starts flying again. More later. Be Safe.

    M1009 Speedometer question

    I looked in my stash of parts and found one speedometer head unit that was as close as possible to what mileage I had and went from there. Or don't worry about it at all. In PA old vehicles are exempt from mileage statements as they can not be confirmed accurate. I mean a 35 year-old vehicle...

    Hinge hood

    Hood hinges are the same on all full size C K series trucks, cab chassis from 1981-1991. From 1988 on they made cab chassis in V R series. That is the newer body style. I have a lot of CUCV hood hinges and spring loaded hinges. They are FREE if you pay the shipping. Let me know. And yes K5...

    M1009 Speedometer question

    Probably the speedo head unit is bad. That is my guess. I had some scream and go almost 1/2 way around the second time. Lubed the head unit on a few and replaced the speedo head on a few more. Common issue on old vehicles.

    M1009 Speedometer question

    Do you have the little gear box of the end at the transfer case. I am assuming you are working on an M1009?

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    When you get a few minutes and you have nothing better to do just grab a few parts and install them on the CUCV. The front fender cab mount fillers were easy to install. It took me longer to find the correct fasteners to do the installation. I know these are missing on a lot of CUCV's but they...

    OK last night as I waited for my helper on my barn project I took the time to remove another incorrect E brake cable and install the correct one. I have had this same issue in the past but seems that the COVID 19 has closed the reliable local shops for a while. They are open again. Thank you. 2...

    OK. An update on the injection pump. I have never been in a rush. It is not my style. I do not like negativity and try and keep even keeled about delivery dates on items. It will be a month on Saturday June 6 that I removed the pump. I called and they are back logged. I can expect it in another...

    Need help identifing a part.

    I have several used CUCV columns for parts. Let me know if that interests you. The ones in the red square are attached to the housing on the back. I spent a considerable amount of time surgically dis assembling a steering column. May I suggest. Only a suggestion. Remove the entire column and lay...
