    Secondary Oil Pressure Gauge

    I’ve seen where some of you have installed fuel pressure gauges on the top port of the filter housing, and have figured out how to do that, but I’ve also seen photos of some secondary oil pressure gauges installed right behind the drivers side valve cover. Has anyone here done that, and can...

    Voltage Regulator for 200amp trucks

    I called and emailed Trailworthy for 3 months and never got a response. Unfortunately I think they must be kaput.

    Voltage Regulator for 200amp trucks

    Yep, I have heard and noticed the same. Everyone told me to run from Wolfer as far as I could when I first started my truck.

    Voltage Regulator for 200amp trucks

    Other than Hummer Parts Guy, are there any other reputable sources for new voltage regulators for a 200amp truck?

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    I’ve heard it takes 30-90 days to cure so I was worried about top coating it too soon and having adhesion issues or alligatoring.

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    Mine didn’t come with two nozzles, and I’ve read the same about the change in their can supplier recently. Tried everything in every forum/post I could find and each can dribbled and sputtered when 1/2 used, no matter what I tried. Now I’m worried I can’t top coat it with anything else for a...

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    Tried using Rapco but their dribbling cans made me absolutely crazy… anyone know how long I would need to let it cure before I scuff it and cover it with Behr or similar acrylic latex?

    Black Substance on Battery Terminals Between Frame and Tunnel

    So it’s just plain old tar? If that’s the case, I assume WD-40, mineral spirits or kerosene would do the trick.

    Black Substance on Battery Terminals Between Frame and Tunnel

    Thanks for the recommendation. I tried some acetone to get it off my tools and it still took alot of rubbing with a rag to get it off. It's certainly some nasty stuff and there's hardly any room to get your hands or tools up there.

    Black Substance on Battery Terminals Between Frame and Tunnel

    After removing the ring terminals for the radio tray power cable from the positive and ground stud terminals between the frame and the tunnel, I don't think I'm getting a good connection anymore. Both were covered in a thick black material that had skinned over like silicone on the outside, but...

    Do you have a picture of one you've done in satin finish?

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    You’ve used the Behr in Satin? Did it harden up as well as the flat? I wasn’t so much worried about cost because I actually already bought the Rapco paint. After I bought it though, I started seeing reports of how oily hand prints and things like bird droppings and water spots can become...

    That’s encouraging news, thank you!

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    Question again for the Behr paint guys… how does it hold up to bird droppings, hand prints, hand oils, etc.? I’ve seen some older Rapco jobs recently that worried me in those departments. Is it still an issue with Behr too since it’s flat? Or will the oils and stains come off? Can’t imagine...

    Aluminum Champion vs OEM Radiator

    Is there any risk of running too cool with one of these aluminum Champions? I've seen stories of guys running the Flow Kooler water pump, which I understand is essentially a copy of the late model high flow H1 water pump, and aluminum radiators, some of whom have issues making heat in the...

    Aluminum Champion vs OEM Radiator

    Thanks! Certainly gives me some spots to look for when I pull mine apart.

    Aluminum Champion vs OEM Radiator

    The radiator on my 1123 is full of sludge and rust. The lower tube on my truck was not stainless and had disintegrated from the inside out which was hard to tell since it was entirely covered in undercoating. Since I’m already installing new hoses, a water pump, and replacing my leaking...
