    Slant Back Roof Leaks

    I used the same neoprene tape as Andy, no rivets, and I drilled 4 additional holes through the turret top cover and the roof for bolts. She has not leaked since. This and a new $25 rear hatch seal and I too have 99.5% of my leaks "covered.".

    HMMWV Deep Water Exhaust

    I see the bend but I think that can be over come. I had to loosen the exhaust pipe at that fitting and then try to line up the holes for the mounting holes in the fender while the exhaust was loose. It will move and twist around quite a bit, to the point where I thought mine wasn't going to...

    HMMWV Deep Water Exhaust

    Measure from the bend to where it attaches and we can compare it to mine. You may have one for an armored vehicle. You could use a spacer of some sort if that is the case or have it cut and rewelded like 86Humv suggested

    HMMWV Deep Water Exhaust

    This is on a 1045A2. They did make a much longer one for those trucks with armor. The lower pipe where it attaches sticks out about 3 inches further than this one does. I also used a top hat rubber bushing with a threaded insert I bought at Lowe's or Home Depot. Be sure you have the bracket...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    I plan on driving my Humvee from south of Houston, Texas to Minnesota towards the end of April. I am getting her ready to go so in the last few weeks I have installed a new head light dimmer switch, a new to me but used EESS, a 24 v to 12 v transformer, installed a 12 volt marine stereo (I have...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    It is my understanding that you will have a hard time getting them off without cracking them anyway. Your truck sounds just like mine, with the pivot extensions, and strategically placed white lithium grease. Did you have tin foil tape on your wiper pivot ends? But I digress, my truck had a...

    Slant Back Roof Leaks

    Yes, Andy mine was like yours, metal on metal. So I may to take your advice, bite the bullet, and tear off the hatch cover and start from scratch with a seal and be done with it until a new leaks manifests itself, hmm, did I hear windshield?.....

    Slant Back Roof Leaks

    This may, thank you. Depends upon how it is designed to be attached. If it designed to go around the actual rough cut out of the roof, and has excess at the top to act as the seal when the cover is bolted down, then yes it probably will work.

    Slant Back Roof Leaks

    Today I installed a new large rubber seal around the rear hatch door. I also replaced the hex head bolts with carriage bolts on the rear pillar to keep the seal from ripping on the hex heads. Earlier I added a piece of rubber across the deflector above the hatch door and that has already...

    Backup camera and radio rack stuff

    It looks great. I had to mount my camera under the beam for clearance. I was worried about road crudd on the lense but so far that has not been an issue.

    Success at Repairing Military AGM Batteries?

    That is s good idea as you know what they say, great minds and all that...plus my hoarding, ah, err, I mean collecting tendencies arose when I considered tossing them out. I drew them down yesterday and I am recharging them at a trickle charger rate (a 2 amp slow charge).

    Success at Repairing Military AGM Batteries?

    I brought the battery's over to NAPA and the parts guy retrieved a handheld load tester and came out to the truck. He did it right at the back of the truck. Thank God as I didn't look forward to humping those batterys to the back of the shop. So he load tested them with the initial setting...
