    Fuels sending unit and sock filter

    It had a strange pulsing in rpms on Start up but quit once the idle kicked down. I didn’t make but a 1/4 mile down the road when it stopped cold turkey under acceleration and just as it shifted into 2nd. Coasted to the side dead stick. It restarted with a little effort and quit again about 100...

    Fuels sending unit and sock filter

    My normally great running M1009 quit on me going down the road last week. Research on the forum has got me looking at the fuel sock in the tank. The sending unit started acting up about a year ago so this would seem to be a good time to replace the unit. . My local auto zone doesn't have much...

    85 M1009 runs great, then wont restart

    Doing some research of the forum threads on this topic most seem to have a lack of power before it stopped. My M 1009 was under acceleration and just shifted into 2nd when it suddenly died . All my gen/oil lights came on and I lost power and coasted to a stop. Would a clogged fuel sock do that...

    85 M1009 runs great, then wont restart

    My normally great running M1009 did just about the same thing today. On start up on high idle it had a slight pulsing cycle that stopped when it kicked down. Going down the road it died just a half mile from the house. It restarted with some effort ..I drove 100 feet and it died again. No...

    X doors

    I did some trading with one of the Guard units about 2005...I had about $180 in all four doors . Wasn't that big a deal back then because of the number of trucks in private hands . Those folks who bought Humvee parts back before the surge of trucks on the market are the smart ones. They took a...

    X doors

    I cut loose a set I had about a year ago....they were 85-90% with great glass and seals. I put them out for $2400..they lasted about 48 hrs. I like my soft doors for the ease of on/off.. I let someone else hold on to the "cool" factor. SEMPER FI keith

    Oldest M37

    Latest MV mag that made it to my mail box yesterday has a article on the "oldest" M37 still running. With the info provided in the article I did the math on my oldest M37 (April-51) and it seems to be the 1450th vehicle off the line. Four months into production and they had over 1400 trucks...

    M37 ran fine for last years parades, this year, not so much

    ALL I run in my older trucks and small engine stuff is Non-eth. My older engines also get a lead additive to the fuel....helps with the valves from what I've been told. The kick in the butt is that the pump that went bad was 10 yrs old...with only 60 miles on it. I keep a vehicle log on each...

    M37 ran fine for last years parades, this year, not so much

    Follow up on the fuel delivery issue. I replaced my stock fuel pump with a spare and the jumping/bucking in the higher rpm's was cured. It runs well again. Two side notes, first on removing the old pump I did notice that one of my factory pump bolts was slightly loose. My train of thought told...

    M37 ran fine for last years parades, this year, not so much

    I'm having the same issue right now with one of my M37's. It hasn't been driven in almost two years..stored with non-eth. I'm having a fuel delivery issue. Primer on stock fuel pump primes filter and carb..but will not deliver enough fuel for higher speeds very long. I cleaned the in- tank...

    M37USMC rear shackles

    I got these off a 1951 USMC truck that came out of Port St. Joe , Florida. The City was using it for a brush truck. And you are correct...originals are hard to locate. SEMPER FI !! keith

    M-37 fuel pump rebuild

    That is one of the greatest fears for me with these trucks and why I keep a check on the oil level closely. As far as rebuilding a fuel pump goes I have sent several to John @ Mid-West Military to be repaired so the internals will take the new gas. I'm sure there are others on this site that...
