    Rifle Mount

    Installed. I went through the mat, looks neater and works fine. Second pic shows some edge trim I put on to keep from scratching up the stock too much.

    Rifle Mount

    That helps immensely! I didn't think it went that far back, and on the angled part of the floor makes sense.

    Rifle Mount

    Does anyone have a picture of the lower rifle mount? The internet is bereft of any photos in that area. The book picture isn't much help, and mounting it in the direction it shows seems to angle the rifle butt incorrectly.

    Versions of HMMWV Tachometers

    Does anyone know the background on the tachs in the HMMWVs? Like, why? Is it to set RPM for the hydraulic winch using the hand throttle? My Moto Guzzi that should have a tach doesn't, and my HMMWV that doesn't really need one has one from the factory. :unsure:

    SF97?

    CA sucks for much more than just MV ownership.... ;) I did my first three years of AF at Travis near Fairfield back in the early 80s; it was barely tolerable then.

    Another shot. It looks like a tiny pick-axe, but there's not hole for a handle.

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Pulled all the chairs out and lifted or removed the matting- all San Yermo mud under there. I started with a putty knife and scraped the mud up, then mowed the front yard. That brief break dried the little bit of mud left, so I vacuumed up as much as I could, then got the hose and a scrub...

    Air Horn installation on M1045A2

    Some years ago I owned a 1986 Ford Ranger XLT with the off-road package. I wanted an air horn in it, and this is how it was done. I sourced the air horn from a steel scrapyard, it was attached to the roof of a semi-tractor body that had been scrapped. I also bought the dual-needle air pressure...

    What's a line wrench?

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Instead of wondering what kind of amperage is running down Wire 14 I decided to find out. I talked to a techno-wienie I know (Technowienie) and he was skeptical about the 14ga wire carrying 70 amps. Also, whatever switch I use, even if the contacts weld themselves together it's not going to...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Excellent! So yes, I see wire 14 comes off the Start leg, so if that's 70 amps there's no way the key switch I have will work. Another option I guess would be a latching relay, but I don't find one that can handle that much current. I like the keyed battery cutoff, but I wouldn't want to...

    I was there, poured over that diagram for over an hour now, don't see the neutral switch or wire 14 anywhere in that.

    I've downloaded everything I can find- no schematics. Do you have a link?

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    I still need to paint them before installing, which will require some nice weather. I will be checking (currently raining) but I'm pretty sure it's a ground path, not carrying any current. In other words, the shifter in P or N provide a ground path to allow the starter relay to close. EDIT to...
