    New FLU419 Owner, Electrical Woes

    Replaced that relay and now most of my electrical works! I have a new old stock wiring harness to replace the chewed up wires, after that I should be in business. :) Thanks!

    New FLU419 Owner, Electrical Woes

    Thanks for the help everyone! I couldn't get the relay locally so I am waiting for one to arrive. Pulling that alternator was a chore! I probably should have dropped the front bucket and tilted the cab. What car batteries are you guys running? I have the wrong size lead acid batteries right now...

    New FLU419 Owner, Electrical Woes

    I tried printing that diagram 5 times last night, it needs to be printed at staples like you said. I found rodent poop on the passenger side floor, but so far have been unable to find any damaged wires. I will probably pull the alternator and volt meter that relay.

    Pickup Tube Help

    Problem has been fixed! My dad (heavy diesel mechanic) was able to get the pickup tube removed. The tube was fine. :( We put a small fuel pump on the pickup tube to send extra fuel and keep pressure in the lines. While I didn't fix what is causing the problem I did removed all the symptons of...

    New FLU419 Owner, Electrical Woes

    I purchased a FLU419 over the weekend, it is amazing! My engine starts instantly and runs great, trans is solid, hydraulics and hydraulic tools work well. My problem is that no electrical system is working. I replaced all the relays and fuses I could find. My on dash voltmeter does not read any...

    Pickup Tube Help

    The entire vent line was replaced with a brand new line. Hooked an air compressor to the old vent line and blew air through it. No air came out the other side. Old vent tube removed, new tubing put in its place.

    Pickup Tube Help

    My truck did have a clogged vent tube. It has been fixed. There was no sealing compound on the pickup tube elbow, I added some and put it back together. I left the tank 20 gallons low. I am going to drive it around and see if I notice any difference. If it isn't fixed I think I am going to try a...

    Pickup Tube Help

    Truck runs perfect pulling fuel from a jerry can. I will replace the air filter, I have a spare. Checked the pickup tube after draining the tank. Looked down it with a flashlight and saw no signs of damage or corrosion.

    Pickup Tube Help

    My truck runs perfect on a full tank of fuel. After I run through about 4 gallons of fuel I occasionally begin to get air in the fuel line. At half a tank I can drive 30 seconds at fuel throttle and then air gets in the line and it looses throttle until more fuel gets into the line. At 1/4 tank...

    Water/Methanol Injection, anyone??

    I have an extra water meth kit from coolmist and a 10 gallon tank. I will be installing water meth on my truck. I live at 6,000 feet above sea level and have mountains to climb to 10,000+ feet. I am installing the kit to keep EGT down on long climbs. My engine is 225hp mechanical injection. I...

    HIMARS cab on a M1078

    That would be funny! It was always cool watching the HIMARS stand up while I was in Afghanistan. I never got to see them launch a rocket. I did get to see them impact. :shock:

    Ctis restoration

    I think the MRAP wheels are a different bolt pattern. I will probably just switch them to my current wheels and make the CTIS work as intended originally.

    Ctis restoration

    I have these wheels currently on my truck and will be switching to the wheels in the second photo. Is it possible to get the ctis to work with the newer style wheels? Or am I better off remounting the new tires to the existing wheels? Also does anyone know if a forum dealer has some banjo bolts?

    HIMARS cab on a M1078

    I have the cab moved down to my mechanic. He has a cab crane for changing semi cabs, I figured he could do it much faster than me. I did make progress inside the cab. I sorted out most of the electrical. I removed the HIMARS cables that were dangling all over. I also got the seats bolted in...

    HIMARS cab on a M1078

    I have the electrical connections for it, however, I don't think that system is available for sale to civilians. I am going to try to reuse the electrical for the air overpressure to run a inverter for 110v electronics.

    HIMARS cab on a M1078

    You wouldn't happen to have any manuals laying around would you? The wiring in the cab is crazy. I am planning on on gutting the inside and putting my current cabs electronics into it. I will have to switch the electrical connection points under the cab also. The HIMARS cab has a crapload more...

    HIMARS cab on a M1078

    Has anyone attempted this? I suddenly find myself in possession of both a M1078 with cab damage to the roof, and a never installed super clean HIMARS cab. :jumpin: Hopefully it is pretty straight forward... Time to read the technical manuals.

    Fuel Problem, Yoyoing between WOT and Idle

    Problem Solved! The new replacement fuel tank pickup was bad. I filled the tank all the way up and the problem went away. Somewhere on the lower third of the pickup there has to be a leak. Taking it in to the mechanic to get it replace and a few other minor things fixed up. :) Pretty happy that...

    Fuel Problem, Yoyoing between WOT and Idle

    I found one fitting that had been installed backwards, the O-ring side of the fitting was connected to a flare fitting and the flare side was connected where the oring should be. It is running better but still getting air into the system. I have checked every other fitting I could find and they...
