    Front disc dust shield

    Thanks. Will need luck. Not many wrecked CUCV on the west coast to scrounge parts from.

    Front disc dust shield

    Have checked the TM's and they only show a single piece part. When several bolts holding the dually spacer to the disc and hub backed out, they trashed an inner dust shield. I can see no failed spot welds, is there another piece that is not pictured in the TM or is it a single piece made of two...

    Mystery wire between buss bars

    Found this burned out wire while troubleshooting fusible links. Connects directly between the 24v buss bar and the ground buss bar. Doesn't appear to be a fusible link, maybe a capacitor? I am not great at reading automotive electrical schematics - I couldn't find it. So, what WAS it, what did...

    Kinda got carried away..... M1028 rebuild

    I found I had to modify a 1009 fuel intake system (green painted one) to meet the tank ports on the right side. The M1008 was too short (first attempt pic) and getting OEM military hoses to join them without kinking was "fun". I love T-bolt clamps... I also had to invert the fill door to put it...

    Flywheel clutch info needed

    i have no shifter hole currently (TH400) but thanks for the info. I think I have seen a seat that had a notched front frame rail and cushion somewhere on the interwebs.... but yes re custom bend on gearshift Funnily enough if you use the ORD short shaft and adapter and a Magnum ahead of the...

    Recovry4x4: Doing a similar swap - do you have a build thread or tips? Adding a Ranger gear splitter in front of the SM465 and the ORD shortv32 spline output/3.5" 205 adapter

    CUCV with NP205 transfer cases

    I think that regardless of year of manufacture, the parts list used in assembly was what was available when they bid/won the contract ie 1984

    Anyone running 3 fuel tanks in an M1010 or other CUCV?

    Dunno about the 1010 but my 1031 wouldn't fit the sub tank unless I moved the rear crossmember aft and changed the bumper bracing. Yes re: transfer tank - but try this version. Make the rear the main tank and transfer into it from either or both saddles (use the blackout service light switch to...

    Dually Conversion (For looks)

    1.75" seems to be the minimum spacer that you can get away with if you have a standard fleetside unmodified box. FYI the RW hubs up front push the WMS out to 77", the D70 rear dually WMS is 73.5", the 14 bolt CUCV WMS is 68" and the D60 SRW WMS is 69" - so if you want perfect tracking on an...

    50A Aircraft Battery Charger through NATO plug. M1008A1

    I use a NOCO 26000 charger (13A at 24V, 26A at 12v) via the slave plug on a system with dual group 31's in place of each 6TL (4 in total) and I WISH it was 50A/24V as it takes 20 hours or so from 10.5 volts.

    Any problems with swapping a dual thermostat crossover from a 6.5? And what is the heater output thread, 1/2npt or??
