    Wrong dash pad?

    May I suggest: If your just at the "beginning stages of your restoration" you may want to prioritize your repairs first. Run that ride of yours for awhile before you start dumping big dollars in to cosmetics such as the dash pad. There may be more urgent repairs needed that should be tended to...

    Wrong dash pad?

    That gray dash pad is not the original. The originals were a "burgundy/brown" color that matched the door panels and seats. The dash basil is the proper one but the PO must of converted to 12 volt . The non stock 12 volt meter in the dash tells all. Enjoy your restoration project.

    M1009 Little Red Riding Hood.

    Rick Re-glue those corners first. Add wide painter's tape around the decal. Spray WD-40 "directly on a scrubby pad or rag" then add in some elbow grease and your problem will be solved. Just saying . Or is it because you don't own any WD-40

    A little squirt of WD-40 and some elbow grease will clean up that jacking decal like new.

    Tan paint for humvee

    Behr Marquee Exterior flat applied with roller and brush. Center 10 KW genset was painted on access door only. The right 15 kw genset was totally repainted with the Behr paint. Original desert tan was faded so there was not a perfect match but was close enough for my needs.

    High rpm rythmic vibration, mid rpm hum.

    The advance solenoid works to increase the fuel delivery/timing in the IP to help with starting when the engine is cold. If you run down the road while the engine is still cold and or with the IP fuel advanced it will run rough make your truck hammer like your banging on the pistons with a...

    High rpm rythmic vibration, mid rpm hum.

    Check your air cleaner wing nuts for tightness. I had odd/loud/irritating noise that I ultimately traced to a loose air cleaner cover. Also, it sounds like your cold advance switch may not be working and is stuck on. I can hear some hammering on the cylinders as your driving it. Does your truck...

    M1009 air intake cleaner

    No matter what is done to it, the 6.2 is still a turd trying to push a 2.5 ton brick down the road. And there will be no speed or pulling records broken while doing it. At least now it's quieter for you while thinking about the next upgrade.
