    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    Sorry for you late reply. I got one and it was almost identical. Worked out well.

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    I found several on a Google search as well but when it came to shipping one nobody could come through. NAPA can't get them. AutoZone can't either. Some ebay sellers say they have them but sent me a message that they were not available. Maybe it's just crazy right now.

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    Thanks. The only problem I had was the oil cooler lines fitting the new radiator bungs. My oil cooler lines are a flared for a capture style o ring. The ends were too long and bottomed out in the hole so I couldn't catch the threads. I cut an 1/8 inch off the flared end and everything worked. I...

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    I found the radiator from a place in Chicago. If anybody's interested I can get the seller. My local radiator shop guy was able to source the radiator. I called 15 places and nobody had it. They show part numbers for it but no one could produce a radiator. This is a copper brass perfect match...

    That’s some good information. Thank you. I may have just found a copper/brass radiator. The picture looks right but we will see when it gets in. This is been my day project. I have accomplished nothing else today. Maybe I can get the grass mowed before it gets dark.

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    I saw that part number earlier. I called AutoZone and they can’t get one. Napa can’t get one either. So they don’t have any vendors to source it. It seems to be a difficult item to get.

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    That is a lot of money but cheaper than my local radiator shop. He wanted $1400 to recore and I don’t feel like he was trying to gouge me. Supplies seem tight. He did find one some place for $600 but we can’t confirm the cooler lines are on the right sides. I just emailed and eBay seller that...

    Can’t get a new radiator replacement M1008

    I’ve been trying to source a new radiator for my truck. They don’t seem to be available anymore. Does anybody have an idea as to where to get a new radiator for these trucks?

    cure for death wobble on stock m1028

    I rebuilt both kingpins but that didn't seem to help. I then been put a single shim on top on the driver side. That helped a little. I put a second shim on top of the driver side. That helped even more. Another thing that had a huge effect is balancing beads in the tires. I used airsoft pellets...

    Gen 2 light (again)

    So, you think that the brown wire (brn/wht on mine) should have 24v at the relay with the key on. Makes sense coming from the brown wire off the alternator. Which way does the electricity flow? From the alt 2 to the dash relay? Thats what it looks like the way the diode is drawn. I guess that...

    when i said the light glows i meant dimly glows with 3.5v, not brightly as with 24v.

    Opened up a can of worms

    I was having a similar problem until I replaced the o-rings I the filter housing. Took some hunting before I found a guy at NAPA in Apple Valley who took the time to match I to some lost ones he had.
