    Gen 1 exciter---ground stealing voltage

    To begin charging the Alt must be receiving the proper voltage into the exciter circuit. If you would please reread my initial post I clearly state the trouble shooting procedure I am following. The first step is not to replace the Alt at first sign of trouble.

    CUCV Wiring Diagram color (except M1010)

    Thanks Warthog for all the time and effort you have spent. I have learned a ton. For those of us constantly working on clearing electrical gremlins here is an idea. Some times it takes a while for me to trace a circuit due to time or weather restraints. (I have worked on it as little as 30mins...

    Is there a wrong position for the oil cooler lines?

    Yes! There is a difference in the way they are bent. I recently replaced my oil cooler lines on my M1008 as well. I had read of so many problem with the aftermarket ones not fitting and weeping that I took the OEM lines to the local NAPA. They were able to cut the original crimp sleeve off and...

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

    Used the M1008 to get a load of fire wood out of a clear cut. The land owner assumed that he would get a kick out of watching some fool get stuck in the mud or hung up on some of the brush once the truck was loaded...needless to say he was disappointed.

    Lessons learned for oil cooler hose replacement

    Not long ago I decided to replace the weeping oil cooler hoses on the M1008. Instead of buying new ($30+ each!!)... I took them to my local NAPA store that builds Hydraulic hoses. They were able to cut off the old clamp and install fresh hose that was not likely to leak in a couple of years like...

    M1008 Wheel/Tire upgrade

    IIRC the M1008/M1009 have 16 inch rims. The hummer has 16.5. However all Ford/Chevy/Dodge one tons had 16.5 eight lug rims that will work and easy to find. The white ones I found (local pull-a-part) are gonna get hit with the sand blaster then some flat black and wrapped with some hummer take-offs.

    I intended to spell it incorrectly...I think.

    No more Wellman ("Swellman") glow plugs in my CUCVs...

    The long nosed hemostats make great retrivers in tight places. I think that HF even sells a couple of types of long hemostats. I have to get mine changed as well.

    Broken starter bolt

    I had the same thing happen and was able to drill it out and get and extractor in there. I HIGHLY suggest that you wear a face sheild when drilling!! Gravity will work quite well when doing this!! Safety glasses can allow the shavings to get under them and into your eyes. Neither Safety glasses...

    gauge cluster conversion question

    I have been quite interested in doing away with the circut board completely. The poor connections of the light sockets seem to be a problem as well as the limited ability to rearrange guages for mods that each of us may make. I have been working 2 jobs so my time is limited however I have...
