    Decal prep

    Where's a good source for Deuce decals these days? I'm FINALLY going to finish my paint job this spring and I'll be looking for some. Decals or stencils.

    M35A3 tach fixed itself?

    When I bought my deuce the tach jumped like a sugared-up 12 year old on a trampoline. After a few days driving it fixed itself also.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Yep that is the exact same light and that location is where my other one goes.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Found that the removable plate at the front of the bed is the perfect size to install one of my 2 interior lights, so got it cut out and started that process. Installed LED headlights. Installed my VIC-1 amp / control panel.

    New LED headlights alternating brights

    Yep I had wires swapped on the passenger side. Working fine now. I don't remember where I got them but I've had them for years now. Logo on the bottom says Truck Lite

    New LED headlights alternating brights

    I just installed new LED headlights in my deuce. When I turn the switch on, one is on high-beams (both top and bottom of LEDs are lit up) and the other one is not. When I step on the brights switch, they SWAP--the one that was bright goes to regular and the one that was regular goes to brights...

    Dead Deuce

    Yes my Deuce had a "Solargizer" brand 24v trickle charger when I bought it of KY National Guard base in Frankfort. They are still available looks like (though a bit pricey)

    Can the turn signal connector be re-wired?

    Seen in that thread: "I was wrong. It wasn't the blinkers not blinking, it was the indicator light on the turn signal switch not illuminating when the blinkers were on. Poor grounding of the switch to the column." Does the turn signal device need to be grounded to the steering column? I...

    Can the turn signal connector be re-wired?

    Thanks guys. Let me figure out if the wires are the problem first. My interior turn signal indicator light has quit working, but the bulb is good. I'm thinking maybe it's the solid-state flasher inside the fender?

    High oil pressure on a truck that has sat for a long time

    Hmm, that’s on the opposite side of the engine. I think the two of you are talking about two different things. Of course an oil pressure regulator sounds like it might be related to my problem though! So I will check out the oil pressure regulator also, but can anyone confirm I've circled the...

    High oil pressure on a truck that has sat for a long time

    Looking at the TM and then going out and looking at my engine...I can't find it. Any help with a pic? Is this it? (circled in red)

    Can the turn signal connector be re-wired?

    Sounds like a “no” for most people then.

    Can the turn signal connector be re-wired?

    M35A2 turn signal connector, I have 2 but both in pretty rough shape. Can they be disassembled and re-wired? I don’t see how...

    High oil pressure on a truck that has sat for a long time

    Didn't even know it had one but looking at the TM it looks easy enough to remove and check. No info about cleaning it but hopefully that'll be the way to go. Looks like the "Gasket" is a simple O-ring. Thanks!

    High oil pressure on a truck that has sat for a long time

    Took my Deuce out for a couple laps around the neighborhood today. Over the last 5 years, this truck has probably been on the road 2-3 times for a total of 45 minutes. So it sits a lot without running. Oil pressure has always been good but today I noticed it was high, looking above 90 on my 120...
