    Alternator starting to make new noises

    The 60 amp alternator on my HMMWV is starting to make some new noises. The volt meter indicates that it is still charging the batteries fine. I am guessing the bearings in the alternator are kaput. Have you tried replacing the bearings in the alternator? McReddy

    Noisy heater blower / fan ??

    I started using the heater blower / fan on my HMMWV this winter and it is noisy even at low setting. I was wondering if this common or if I need to clean the blower fan and check the blower motor. It is as loud as the engine is at idle. McReddy

    Do HMMWVs / m998s pass emissions test?

    I was wondering if HMMWVs / m998s pass emissions tests? Is 6.5 L any better than the 6.2 L engine as far as emissions go? Going by the pictures on GP, I did not notice any of the HMMWV m998s with DPFs. Anybody put a DPF on ? Thank you in advance.

    Tips to short list HMMWVs up for auction on Gov Planet

    I was wondering if folks wouldn't mind sharing what to look for when short listing HMMWVs for bidding on. I am guessing 1. HMMWVs with 6.5L are worth a little more than ones with 6.2L ?? 2. HMMWVs that can start on their own are worth more than one that need to be jump started ?? 3. HMMWVs...
