    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    Rick - glad you caught the scammer. I sensed something was strange when I saw him start posting on here. He may pop up again under a new stage name, so be watchful. You shouldn’t have any problems selling that M1009. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    Rick I don't believe there are many guys who understand what it takes to properly and correctly "rebuild" or "restore" one of these vehicles, and even fewer folk who have the financial means to fund such an undertaking. Of those who do understand and do have the financial means, an even smaller...

    M1008 Project Fire Rescue

    Yes the smaller starter is supposed to have a bracket. The newer style bracket is GM23502557. Those things are usually readily available on EBay. The bolt that holds the bracket to the block is M8 x 1.25 x 20mm. Use blue LokTite and a lock washer. hope this helps.

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    Rick I believe 1/8" may be a little too far. I found my 6.2's sweet spot just to the driver's side, maybe the thickness of the line.

    What tires are yall running on your CUCVs?

    You now have a decision to make, to follow advice or to abandon it. You have two (2) replies to this thread, both of which recommend Goodyear tires. I will add my endorsement making it three (3) Goodyear recommendations. But you are now saying you are looking online at tire brands which I...

    What tires are yall running on your CUCVs?

    Yeah I've lost track of how many Chevy trucks I ruint mud bogging since 1969. But then sometime in the late 1980's I bought some of them Smartnin' Up Pills from an ad I saw in the back of Outdoor Life magazine. Those things were amazing! Suddenly I realized what all that mud was doing to my...

    What tires are yall running on your CUCVs?

    I had the wheels built in 1985 to run on a new GMC K30 civilian truck. Ran them for over 250,000 miles with no problem whatsoever. Glad I saved them when I sold that truck in 1995. It would probably be cost-prohibitive to built those 20's in today's market. I had 5 of the split rims built...

    What tires are yall running on your CUCVs?

    Initially, after obtaining my M1028 and installing a 5" lift, I ran my custom Firestone split rims and 11.00/20 NDT's. After I had my back surgery, I took off the 20's and installed a set of HMMWV wheels and tires to get the truck a little closer to the ground to help me getting in and out. I...

    Leaking axle?

    Ditto on what Rick said. I suggest you rebuild that front axle all the way through. You don’t have to be a certified mechanic, the step-by-step procedure is in the Technical Manuals ( short for “TMs ). The first time I tore into a GM front axle back in the 1970’s I was scared shirtless. But once...

    Sho Nuff Serious CUCV

    For you guys wanting to see an ultimate overlanding CUCV, check out Joe Grant’s machine in Utah. Joe is a great guy, a US service member, and has assembled what I think is one of the best-equipped trucks on the planet. Enjoy.

    Installed civi Air conditioning in the m1009

    The crank pulley seems to be the weak design in the CPI kit. It is a strong casting, however when bolted to the crank through the OEM pulley as designed it will not align properly with the compressor pulley. I had to get my machine shop to produce a special 3/4"-thick spacer in order to make...

    Cucv vs Humvee th400 throttle position switch

    Here is the link to the thread on the hand throttle. I haven't yet installed mine, but will post photos when I do. Those things are regularly on Ebay. Not sure if there are any on there now. Search HMMWV throttle and see what pops up. Hope this helps...

    Installed civi Air conditioning in the m1009

    Mike the important thing to remember is to align the pulleys so your belt will run straight, smooth, and cool. I believe most guys don't even think about this and then wonder why their belts squeal and then break after a short time. When I assembled the front of my P400, I aligned every single...
