    M1008 Won't Start

    Technically, both of my CUCV's are modified as I have applied the Doghead Starter Relay Modification. Additionally, I added the "High Note Horn" to my M1009 so I could have both tones. I will do the same to my M1008 unless I opt for a Train Horn. In Oklahoma, you better have a LOUD horn...

    M1008 Won't Start

    You are, as always, so spot on. I replaced the fried glow plugs with AC Delco 13G's (all eight) and my truck started immediately. I too want to keep my vehicles stock for as long as I can. My next step will be to replace the rectangular fuel filters mounted to the fire wall. I have no idea...

    Testing Glow Plugs

    Thank you sir!!!! I have copied this information and I put it in my binder. I wonder if I should take the time to test my new glow plugs. Once I put the new plugs in, my truck fired right up. I have begun to realize that I am my CUCV's worst enemy. All this time I thought I was doing...

    Testing Glow Plugs

    I would like to test my resistors, but I am unsure as to how to accomplish this. I have several multi-meters, but that doesn't mean I am well versed as to how to use them. There are many settings on each meter and I don't know what they all do. If I understand this thread correctly, I should...

    M1008 Won't Start

    Thank you for the response...! Checking each end of the resistor makes sense. I hadn't considered that path. I will continue to investigate how to check these resistors. I would like to keep my truck stock if possible. If my resistors are toast, I think I get replacement parts from...

    M1008 Won't Start

    I replaced the batteries as the crew at O'Reilly Auto determined they were bad. I did not order the G-60 Glow Plugs. I ordered the AC Delco 13G plugs as recommended in other posts. They are due in tomorrow. I would like to test the resistors. I imagine the way to test the resistors is to...

    M1008 Won't Start

    CUCVRUS.... You were right on the money! All 8 glow plugs were inop. I remember a while ago that I left the key on overnight, which is what probably fried them. New plugs are ordered and should be here by tomorrow AM.

    M1008 Won't Start

    Thank you for the reply. I will check my glow plugs shortly. I never thought I would again use the glow plug tester that I built, but it seems that now I have a reason...! (Too Much Time On My Hands - Styx)

    M1008 Won't Start

    Hello All.... My M1008 has suddenly determined that it no longer wants to be my daily driver, refusing to start. I recently replaced both batteries so my starter seems to crank quickly. Today, I noticed that the GP solenoid clicks on/off rather quickly. I am used to turning the key, hearing...

    CUCV Instrument Cluster Discussion

    Awesome.... that is why it is in a PDF file. The colors won't look the same but everything else should be OK. Please let me know if you find mistakes so I can get them corrected

    Coolant level sensor

    I am not certain, but lets ponder.... The "Low Coolant" sensor is nothing more than a switch. If the switch is open (not connected to ground), nothing happens at the instrument cluster. If the switch is closed (completing the ground), the instrument cluster light illuminates. Knowing this...

    Coolant level sensor

    You have to eat an elephant one bite at a time. I would suggest that you start with the front of your CUCV. There is a wire harness that runs from the drivers side (DS) firewall, across the DS fender to the front of the truck. At this point, the wires branch to provide power to the DS...

    CUCV Charging System - Re-written

    Attempting to understand my CUCV charging system, I checked the sticky notes for what had been previously posted. I found an article by Gary Wearley that discussed the charging system in detail. Unfortunately, the article was a scanned document from a publication, meaning that for me with my...

    CUCV Instrument Cluster Discussion

    Trying to figure out why my Gen 1 idiot light wouldn't work, I removed my instrument cluster figuring the light bulb was deceased. While I had it in my hand, I saw that the plastic ribbon circuit on the back had some issues that needed repair. I tried to follow each copper path, trying to...

    Another CUCV accident

    Well... I appreciate all of the advice. I am still working with the insurance adjuster. I obtained three more estimates, all of them over 1K. I scanned these estimates and sent them to the adjuster today. I hope to hear back from him by Wednesday next week. I will keep you posted.

    Another CUCV accident

    Attached are some pics of the dent. The dent is hard to see because of the CAMO paint.
