    Losing fuel prime many things done already, still won't run unless bled

    Most likely you have a cracked injection line or two at the flare nut end from over manipulating, over tightening, or from good old vibration. They are known for cracking at the nut. I replaced all of mine on the 1009 when I got it several years ago. I had 4 cracked ones when I pulled it apart...

    Injector hard lines

    Rick I believe the lines are glass lined for a reason; Same process like hot water heater tanks. Not actually glass but a special coating process. If they get bent/manipulated they will crack or crush the coating "like a porcelain sink or tub" that will flake off and could foul up your...

    Injector hard lines

    You may have to look for good used takeout injector lines for the 6.2. New ones are no longer manufactured. I'm not sure if the 6.5 lines will work without bending them. I understand that if you bend them you compromise the interior coating.

    Gen 1 light stays on with key off

    Great advise. I think now I will just pull it and rebuild the original. I don't trust these new oe ones they have advertised.

    Gen 1 light stays on with key off

    Thanks doghead, I was just researching and came to the same conclusion. I may just spring for a new AC Delco isolated ground $150.00 and get the original rebuilt for a spare.

    Gen 1 light stays on with key off

    Just took my 1009 for a nice 20 mile drive and when I got back and turned it off the Gen 1 light stayed on. Even with the key out. It starts fine, voltmeter reads in the green when running and gen 1 light goes out when running but comes on when I shut it off. Popped the hood and noticed...

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

    I thought the volt meters only got their grounding through the steel mounting bracket to the back side of the dash plate.

    QD 2" Reciever hitch.

    I have spray cans of 383 green or lusterless marine green if you need it for the final coat. Nice job by the way.

    1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked.

    Rick, a cleaning tip from an old man. Ammonia works great on the steering wheels. It removes all the built up body grease/slime like its water. Then use a standard spray cleaner to finish it up.

    QD 2" Reciever hitch.

    I hope your drying the paint by the wood stove this morning. What are you planning to pull with the 816? I'm sure you have more appropriately sized trucks with a 2" receiver hitch.

    New From Daytona Beach / Deposit NY

    You call him Ozzie, I called him Buzz. Worked with him and his dad Howard on occasion when I was contracting back in the 80s. Sad thing, dozer flipping on him. Bought doors from Gene @ A&Js. He sold the business long ago and it looks like it finally closed doors. My fun ride was a Green 68 Olds...

    New From Daytona Beach / Deposit NY

    I hope your farm is a "Gentleman's Farm". With that truck's age and history it should be treated with kindness and respect like a retired soldier should be. "Nice Ride"
