    Fiberglass dashboard with speakers

    The truck is a work in progress, it will eventually match. My thoughts were having a nice stereo system and a clean dash(minus the imperfections I let slide), I rushed into it. It definitely glares green onto the windshield, but not enough to bother me or interfere with my driving. It’ll look...

    Can't get M1009 to start, please help.

    If you were getting white smoke and now you’re not, it could be a fuel related issue. Just because it only has 30k miles means nothing to these trucks, they were used in the military. I’ve had mine for about a month, and I get CLOUDS of white smoke when cranking and during idle until it heats...

    CUCV M1009 Fuel lines

    I’ve definitely decided to make my own, and your input on the NiCopp line is much appreciated. I wanted to follow the way it’s hooked up, simply because it sounds easier in my head. The supply line has 2 breaks in it before the pump, the 1st one breaks and just has a rubber hose connecting them...

    CUCV M1009 Fuel lines

    Thank you!! I did buy a new fuel tank and sending unit, I worded it wrong. I just need fuel lines(supply and return), I got the sending unit that deleted the 3rd line. I’ve never bent lines, but I do have a pipe bending tool so that might be my best bet. I installed a clear filter before the...

    CUCV M1009 Fuel lines

    I’ve been searching for new fuel lines, both supply and return. I just bought a new fuel tank, it was gunked up like you wouldn’t believe. The lines are the same, I’d rather buy new than clean the old. Any help would be appreciated, I couldn’t find anything on the original lines.

    Weird Alternator Wiring

    Oh, ok. They extended both wires into the cab, the 2nd pic of the 1st post showed me holding both positives spliced with black wire. The original voltmeter was gone, and they didn’t have one installed. I got a digital intellitronix voltmeter ran to the original voltmeter wiring, it shows around...

    Weird Alternator Wiring

    It’s still 24v, the batteries are in series. 24v wire from the 24v junction box at firewall to the positive of rear battery, wire from 12v block to negative of rear battery, wire from rear negative battery to positive of front battery, negative of front battery grounded to body. The slave...

    Weird Alternator Wiring

    It works, so I haven’t messed with it aside from securing it to stop it from moving. Both alternator Positive wires are ran through the firewall connected to this.

    1986 K5 - M1009 Glow Plug Resistor Bypass

    I’ve read the posts, so I know the basics of what needs to be done. I just wanna be sure I don’t fry anything. Truck gives me hell when starting, I assumed glow plugs or something. I had my hand resting above the resistor, when I moved my hand hit the wire on the passenger side of the resistor...

    Sway Bar Extensions

    Does anyone know where I can get extensions for this type of setup? I’ve looked but only see the other types. It bolts to the leaf spring u-bolt plate, but now it’s about 2” away from bolting to the frame. Any suggestions?

    Thank you, I found a place in Jacksonville, FL. I also have to find sway bar extensions, the bar was a couple of inches away from the frame.
