    Engine Wiring Harness Mounting Bracket 12339343 M998 fit issues

    That was exactly where I thought it should go. I gather the tolerances on this part are wide indeed. I had to take the die grinder to one bolt hole to give me enough clearance to engage the stud and start the bolt. The bend radius of the tabs is slightly off but they conformed to fit just fine...

    Could someone with a 6.2l 998 take a few pics of how this bracket mounts to the manifold studs on the left rear side? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ON BOARD AIR?

    Good point, engine driven compressors are great for running higher demand air systems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    I’m using the right stuff. I finished sealing it up yesterday. Hopefully it’s sealed well. The LT cover was clearly serviced in recent history with a cork gasket and it leaked. The RT cover is sealed with RTV and has no leaks. I’ll report back after test firing this weekend. Editorial, I’ve...

    Started valve cover service. Gasket leaking going with RTV per TM. What a PITA, working on intake manifold and IP line removal for full access. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    HMMVW roll bars

    Interesting work I’d love to see more detail on how you tie the structure into the B&C pillars. Also are there any frame ties or stanchions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Camber questions after all new suspension installed

    A commercial truck shop will have the rack and fortitude to align it. Expect to pay for several hours of labor though... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Camber questions after all new suspension installed

    What is your camber measuring now? If all shims are removed you may be able to dial in more correction with later model control arm eccentrics from the usual HMMWV parts suppliers. https://flashoffroad.com/Maintenance/FrontEnd/align/alignment.htm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    MEP803A glow plug system questions - intake heaters

    Check your fuel supply circuit. My 802 developed a hard start condition below 50. Turned out to be the fuel water separator Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Finished cleaning up the battery box and replacing the missing hold down bracket. The box had some minor corrosion which I neutralized and painted. The battery terminals needed some work to correct for over tightening, hammering etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How much generator do I need?

    I was very fortunate to get an 802 in good condition but it still needed work. I would not recommend this to anyone not mechanically inclined with time to burn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Found a fired blank round while servicing the battery box. After a bit of cleaning may make a keychain for the 998. Finished the keychain after firing the primer a few times. There was no powder in the case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Check the HMMWV troubleshooting TM, it’s an excellent reference! I had two issues, first several glow-plugs were marginal and replaced. Second, the cold start switch was dead which prohibited the injector pump cold start solenoid from functioning. Cold starting is much better now Sent from...
