    M1010 for my daughter the field biologist

    Thanks. If you look at Page 31, post 306, you'll see the kludge I have in place. I tried a bunch of combinations of trimming and torturing the cucv hose. My alternator belt eventually eats through them. I spoke to a radiator shop who was willing to build me a custom hose. I haven't gotten...

    M1010 for my daughter the field biologist

    Thanks WARWAG. Fuse block is my next stop. I don't have the DUVAC. I have an original 24V alternator below, and a leece 12V above. That 12V bolted right in and used the same pulley, but it won't move left far enough that I can get a belt on it. If I use a belt I can install, I don't have...

    M1010 for my daughter the field biologist

    I'm back at it, after some health setbacks. Current project is an electrical issue. I seem to have lost many of the 12v systems. I get power from the battery, through the fusable link, through the first to components on the firewall. When I turn the key, I get lights associated with 24V...

    M1010 for my daughter the field biologist

    I don't even own ether. My problems were several bad IPs, then loose fuel connections that either allowed air into the fuel lines or fuel out of the fuel lines or both. Once we installed a good IP with tight lines, all was well. My problem was inadequate experience. When I installed a brand...

    M1010 for my daughter the field biologist

    The truck is running now. New shocks fixed the death wobble. The original shock bushings were shot. I finally found a shop that handles heavy diesels. I pulled into the lot and it was full of big dump trucks etc. They got my IP working properly, with no fuel or air leaks. I know the 6.2...

    Project m1010

    You might consider stripping the foam and vinyl from your dash and painting the steel that remains. There are threads on this. It can come out better than some of the available replacement dashes out there. That's what we plan to do with ours, once that makes the priority cut. We use ours as...

    No, the truck is still dead. I'm going back to square 1. Work has left me no time of late to work on the truck.

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    Glow plugs are Bosch with 2,000 miles on them. Yes, I know they need to work. I got fuel mist before I tightened the lines on the injectors. It caught twice today. Once I eased up on the throttle too quickly and it died. Once I got off the starter too quickly and it died. I think I'm...

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    AntennaClimber responded from his Rt66 Convoy, and told me to check my pico fuse and the temp sensor behind the intake manifold on the driver's side. The pico fuse was blown, so I swapped in my spare GlowPlug Controller and shipped the blown one back to AntennaClimber for TLC. I found a point...

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    The mechanical pump is the one that came with the truck. I bought a replacement, but I didn't want to change too many things at once, so I haven't installed it yet. I put the electric pump in line with the mechanical one so I could get the air out of the fuel system before cranking the engine...

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    I have an electric pump between the metal fuel line under the intake manifold, and the fuel filter. It's the kind of pump that stops when it reaches 10PSI. When I disconnect the fuel filter outlet and turn that pump on, I have a steady stream of fuel coming out of the fuel filter toward the...

    Pump marks aligned. Now debugging a fuel supply problem... I bet the IP will work better when it gets fuel.

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    Yes. I have 12V at the pink IP wire with the key on. I hear the relay inside the IP operate when I connect the pink wire while it has 12V. Before I tightened the injector lines to the injectors, I got fuel mist when I cranked. I have an electric lift pump in line with the mechanical one, so...

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    Well, I got it all reassembled. I've cranked it 3 times, at full throttle, without a sputter of ignition. My AntennaClimber Glowplug controller is acting weird. It usually flashes for about 14 seconds, then I start. Now it flashes only once... It does give me the green LED on the card edge...

    seeking CUCV IP Replacement how-to

    Thanks for your patience with my newbieness. Is the "advance lever" the thing the cold advance solenoid (1 below) pushes on? Does "depress advance lever" mean push it all the way? The TM talks about rotating the pump to retard the timing, but it doesn't say which way. Some guy on the...
