    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Gave Blaze a well deserved bath and changed out the glow plug controller card. Wow, that's what the " WAIT" light looks like!! :-)

    Rust!

    I'll second nyoffroad, check with your local body shops to see where they get their panels. I was looking for some repair panels and what started off as $28 parts with $110 shipping, ended up being $26 parts and a few miles travel to a local warehouse.

    Still sluggish starting in the cold....

    The IP is under & just in front of the air cleaner. Pink wire goes to the IP to cut it off, two green wires go to the advance & fast idle. My GP relay failed & I replace it withth st85, worth the money & tried/true.

    Are you still getting power to your cold advance & fast idle? They're the green wires on the injector pump. These are controlled by a temp switch/sensor on the passenger side block, towards the rear.

    M1009 hard power steering and mushy brakes

    The last time I had problems with a stiffer than usual steering, one of the bracket securing nuts left me and two of the others were extremely loose. I replaced the missing nut, tightened the two loose nuts and readjusted the belt. No problems since.

    Gen 2 alternator replacement question

    Check out the "alternator symptom" sticky (post 120) in the CUCV forum. That location is only used on the driver's side alt. It's tach pick up as part of the STE/ICE diagnostic system.

    How to know if my 6.2l is running as it should

    To lube the speedo cable, I pulled it loose of the speedometer, disconnected the other end from the trans. The speedometer end has a little cup at the end that I filled with a penetrating oil, then I put a drill on the trans side and ran it for a few minutes. It made a world of difference in my...

    Speedometer vs GPS

    Ditto what jw4x4 said, speedometer error is a ratio or percent so it shows more at higher speeds. If you're interested in correcting it or calculating the error you might try this site http://chevelleengineer.home.comcast.net/~chevelleengineer/speedo.htm
