    Reviving a parked M1009

    Update: I got the instrument cluster cleaned and all put back together. Also bought a new instrument/dash cover from eBay for $55 including shipping. Pretty good deal IMO. So far, the right turn signal light isn’t working in the dash but is operating outside the truck. Might be a bad bulb or...

    Reviving a parked M1009

    I was looking at the ISSPRO gauge you recommended in another thread. Those were $120. I found some AutoMeter gauges for around $50-60 on Amazon. Is that a good brand?

    Reviving a parked M1009

    Thanks. I’m going to add oil pressure, water temp, trans temp, and a volt gauge. I think I’d like to move the dummy lights to the right of the cluster where the volt meter would be. Currently the mounting plate is missing on that side (came that way). I’ve seen some smaller indicator lights...

    Reviving a parked M1009

    Update: I got the headlights, brake lights, and both turn signals working. Turn signal was just a bad switch behind the steering wheel. That was a PITA to change. But, it also fixed the brake lights being out. The dimmer low/high switch had dirty/corroded pins. Cleaned them off with some...

    Reviving a parked M1009

    Update: I’ve cleaned up electrical connections from the batteries to the slave bar (I think that’s what’s it’s called) and all the connections on both of those bars. I applied an electric grease that was recommended on one of the sticky’s. The WAIT light was staying on amd the truck was...

    I’ll know more on the brakes once I get there. For now they work fine for in/out of the garage and down the street and back. update on the driver side alt belt: gates 7575 is the correct size for me. No more screeching! I have the trans pan dropped and going to change filter and add new...

    Reviving a parked M1009

    I haven’t checked the brakes yet. Mine work fine for now. I can’t drive it on the road yet so I’m just working on it as I can in my driveway. How did you flush the brakes? I’ve done this once on a 2000 F250 by jacking up the driver sideof the truck and cracking the passenger side rear...

    Reviving a parked M1009

    It's covered in oil and grime but the L shaped bracket on the underside of the power steering pump is there! That's a relief. I think I figured out my problem. I was routing the belt from the power steering pump strait to the alternator. I found a picture of how the belt should route and I...

    Thanks. I’ll have to get under there and see where to make that adjustment.

    Reviving a parked M1009

    Glad you posted this because I saw a similar response in my search of the threads and I was going to search it out and reply. After loaded the truck on a trailer to head home, I stopped at a parts store and did exactly as you suggested. I got a belt that would only fit by using a flat head...

    Thanks. The old ones were refurbs anyway and I tried to charge them last year with no luck.

    Reviving a parked M1009

    Hey guys, I'm new here. I inherited an M1009 from my late father and it's been parked for about 2.5 years at my grandparents house. They live in the country so most likely there's going to be a few nests under the hood. I'm planning on making a trip in the next week or two to try and get this...
