    Got a new m1009

    Thank you for posting pics. Just an hour ago I was looking for pictures of what the dash mounted radio equipment looked like. I am looking to get the radio/equipment for my M1009.

    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    I do have a question. You stated you did all the underside painting. Do you do any kind of sand blasting? I have a 1986 M1009 that I would like to paint the underside but there is a fair amount of surface rust. Thank you for your time.

    CUCV inner fender

    I replaced the inner fenders on my M1009. When I removed the old passenger side one, I noticed how accessible the fuel pump was, so I replaced it. I would suggest it would be a good time to replace your fuel pump if original. Just a suggestion.

    Cucv back to stock glow plug controls

    I had the same issue with my 86 M1009 it had a push button and hard starting problems. Do you have a GP contoller card? If so you can look at getting the wiring back to stock, then you can use the TM's to diagnose your issue. I suggest printing out the wiring diagrams and see what has been done...

    My M1009

    What does that 4 mean? I have a 4 on my right fender as well. The best I can tell my M1009 came from a National Guard unit in Indiana. The bumper number/marking is "38 38 MSB". I think the MSB may stand for Medical Support Battalion". Thanks.

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

    I replaced the core support bushings on my M1009. Not as daunting as I thought, not easy, but not horrible. I can think of much worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    Crank, no start, white smoke.

    I got a fuel pump push rod from Kascar Real 4WD. They sell HMMWV parts, but the part number from the CUCV TM is the same as listed on this website. Quick shipping. I ordered 2 to have a spare.

    "Another" Gen 1 Alternator Light Thread

    I had the same issue. The ground wire for Gen 1 was bad. I looked closely at the ends at the connectors and noticed "green stuff" where the wire strands were crimped in the connector. So I assumed this corrosion had gotten farther into the wire. I replaced with, if I remember right, an 8 gauge...

    Laundry list for the m1009

    I had a similar issue with my M1009 brakes of a "crunching" sound the last few feet when coming to a stop. I removed the calipers and found a mouse skull between the rotor and backing plate:shock:, on one side, that was not the source of the sound, just a funny thing to find. I eventually...

    Gen 1 & 2 dash lights

    I just had a similar issue. My Gen 1 light would only come on at start up at times, not every time. I chased it down to the bulb socket brass "clips" that the bulb sits in the socket were slightly corroded. A few seconds with a small file and now the system works again.
