    New M998 Owner - White-Blue Smoke

    More often than not, you can have one or 2 bad glow plugs and the truck will start fine, actually, I’ve seen trucks start almost perfectly in warm wheather with just 4 good plugs, you must meter all 8 plugs to determine if you have even one bad plug, I had a 1097A2 that started almost perfectly...

    HMMWV Ground Shunt

    What is the ideal Humvee for a starter?

    CTIS is garbage and they don’t come in HMMWV’s that the US military uses...the A2’s are CTIS capable though I believe SF had them in GMV’s...but not rank and file Hmmwv’s . AC is already in most of the M1123’’s standard In all new trucks.

Keep in mind, you can go it alone and venture into the auctions “good luck”, be patient and don’t post in 6 mos...
