    can a 60 amp Alternator be swapped out with a 200 Amp Alternator without any mods?

    Update! I have no idea what the heck is going on? I was messing with the 2A Wire, (see picture) and all of a sudden the volt gauge shot up and started charging perfect! I wiggled the wire again and lost charging again. So a bad wire one would guess, right? Wrong! I thought it was a bad wire...

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    So, here’s an update. I lost power to my glow plugs as I have mentioned in previous post, but I was able to start the engine and I also noticed that my volt gauge doesn’t come out of the yellow and I’m averaging 24 volts and it goes down from there the longer I drive. My question is this...

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    That’s kinda where I installed my RPM gauge near that location but was able to keep my air gauge. You might want to reinstall the air gauge somwhere. But it looks like a clean install. Good job.

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    well there you go! Mac mortars don’t sell used parts. So that’s where I’m going, it’s the most logical move. Unless Ericks does price matching? Kidding! Boy i’m glad thats over. Thanks

    Spare 6.2L engine question

    Agreed! The 6.5 Gep optimizer Is a very good engine. After my research on the 6.2 L I am so thankful mine didn’t have one under the hood. And after more research on my block numbers and valley castings I have a 2005 6.5 GEP with Navistar block.

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    Correct! Mac Motors doesn’t say it’s “new”or “used” so I’m forced to make an assumption. I’m just a Leyman when it comes to things like this, but my knowledge on the Humvee is rapidly growing. I mean I don’t know there history, I’m just a civilian customer who likes to know what he’s buying...

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    ok course. But for the price difference it would better to get the new. Only God knows how much time is left on a used PCB and if it goes out 6 months from now then I would be spending more money.

    Manual Override of Glow Plug Controller

    yeah I found the box from Erik’s last night, it’s cheaper and it’s new also. I don’t think the one from macmotors is new? thanks for the help.

    Manual Glow Plug Control Instructions

    No problem. I ran 12 volts threw the 575A which feeds the glow plugs and runs straight Into the PCB. It seems that my glow plug wires are integrated into the main harness. Nevertheless, I ran a hot wire to that wire and my rig fired up instantly. I didn’t use any switch or solenoid I was just...
