    Friggin start box light

    I've read some threads and don't want to hijack current thread. My wait light/glow system is not working properly. It will not glow with truck cold but weather warm. It will crank but takes longer. I went out this morning with colder Temps and it worked properly. I'm guessing it's the temp...

    Battery Hold Down Rods

    I need a battery hold down bracket and the rods that go with it. I have found several brackets but the only rods have been 10,00 per piece plus shipping. Does anyone know where I can get a kit or at least the rods in a kit? If there is a good DIY solution I'm game for that also.

    Alternator questions

    My alternator is going bad..I think. When I first purchased it would surge between green and red on gauge. I adjusted the regulator so when it wasn't surging or showing overcharge the needle sat right on the line in the green. Sometimes it would get stuck "Overcharging" and I would turn the...

    M998 6.2, 3 speed trans adjusting questions

    My M998 shifts the same regardless of throttle position. It barely gets moving before it shifts into 2nd and then shifts into 3rd fairly quick. It will not downshift from pedal input. It will downshift when slowing to a stop as one would assume a properly operating trans should. When...

    Max Vehicle Operating Speeds

    I was reading the placard for M998 6.2/3 speed. It says in High range max speed in 2nd gear is 45mph. How can that be anywhere near accurate? When driving I'm afraid to hold second past 33ish. Am I missing something?
