    2 wheel vs 4 wheel steering

    A lot of A5s were A2s 4WS and were converted to 2 wheel steer. My A5 is one example. It still has the hole in the deck for accessing the 4 wheel to 2 wheel lockout bracket. Mine also still has the mounting studs for the rear bellcrank in place. Deco Grand is one of the companies that the...

    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Replaced the right front tire. My 2 year old MTR hit something while backing up. Cracked the side wall. Man getting those PVC inserts out of the old tire is a b*tch! Ended up cutting the sidewall to pull it out.

    Steering wheel chain

    The military added them after someone broke into a facility and stole a tank. They required all vehicles to be "secured" They actually added a keyed switch to the start panel on the OH 58 helicopters!

    6.2L fuel leak

    I got a rebuild kit from Gomers diesel. Took off the top cap and pulled the accelerator shaft out (you'll have to pull the intake manifold to get the shaft out.) Put new o rings on the shaft and buttoned it up. Installed new intake gaskets. Hasnt leaked since. Good luck

    6.2L fuel leak

    CUCV is correct it could be the return fuel lines. Also check the o rings for the throttle shaft that runs through the IP. I had those leak. It ran down the gallery under the intake and out the back of the engine. Dripped down by the starter. Good luck
