    Removing cover up paint from ammo crates

    This seemed to be the best place to ask this. I came across a good deal on some grenade boxes and wanted to know what would be the best way to remove the cover paint from a few I plan to keep for my personal collection, if there is a way. If this is not the appropriate section,mods please move.

    Front Pinion Seal leak

    Hello all! So I have been nursing a neck/shoulder injury for a while now and took some time off work a few weeks back. I made a poor choice, and decided to take my M1009 down to a local mechanic to have the front pinion seal looked at and replaced if that was what was causing my leak while I...

    Starter doesn't have bracket mounting stud

    As the title states, my starter doesn't have a stud on it to mount the bracket to. It's a direct drive. Any clue as to why, and does that top bolt that is there just unscrew and allow the mounting stud to be put in its place? Any leads on a mounting stud? My searches for all these questions...

    Leaking injector M1009

    So I’m out Sunday when on the way back from the store the truck becomes sluggish and loses power going up the very large hill I live on, then it shuts off. I pop the hood and smell fuel. I find that one of my injectors is leaking fluid, so I tighten it up, open the vent plug on the fuel filter...

    ATF leak at shift lever

    M1009, I have a fairly decent ATF leak that appears to be coming from where the shift lever enters the pan. The cork gasket(which sucks, and I over torqued so there are small leaks around that in places) was installed along with a new filter a few months back, and the leak has slowly appeared...

    Temp Gauge Issue

    I installed a Sunpro Mechanical Temp gauge this weekend, AA Part No. CP8217. I used the open plug on the water pump to install the sensor using the supplied adapters, and temporarily mounted the gauge under the toggle switches inside. The gauge reads 160-165 while driving around, will dip to...

    Replacing a needle on a fuel gauge

    So my fuel gauge stopped working, showed around 1/4 of a tank when full. I went through the TMs, followed the directions, and everything pointed to a faulty gauge. I was able to get a take off gauge from a fellow member here(free of charge) the only thing wrong with it was the needle was...

    So I completed the oil pan gasket/broken bolt extraction project this weekend thinking I had resolved my oil leak issue. It still leaks. I was certain the leak was coming from the front lip of the oil pan between the two bolts there, but apparently its just running down from behind the pan and...

    So in my quest to find another oil leak, which I did(oil pan gasket) my light spotted something under the air filter/manifold. See pics below. It seems Mr. Mouse once lived in my vehicle.
