    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    We appreciate all of the work that you put into this yearly Steve. I think that the opposite may be true if you skip a year especially under these circumstances...even more people could make the effort in 2021.

    M1010 box on a M1008

    Thanks for the feedback everyone & especially thank you for those pics of the m1010 with the ambulance body removed. That was helpful to understand how it works. I had another thought that might make this 'more worth going to all this trouble'. I recently scored a deal on a 1988 v30 Air...

    M1010 box on a M1008

    Hello all. I have the opportunity to purchase a m1010 roller...well sort of. The cab is rotten, axles are gone, & the drivetrain has already been removed. It would come with half ton axles to make it movable. I currently have two d30s... one of which is a clean m1008a1 that was painted...

    Brainstorming a Gen Trailer build > mep003a/m101a2

    Here is the genset being loaded into the m101a2 trailer...at least for now & here is the Air Force v30 Crew Cab... far from perfect but a beauty in my eyes.

    Brainstorming a Gen Trailer build > mep003a/m101a2

    Thank you guys for the feedback. I may purchase additional units but have no plans of ever housing them on the same trailer. I went there today & picked up the nicest of the 5 complete units sitting there. I have the option to snag a 2nd one for $450 more (2 for $1000) but I ran into a...

    Brainstorming a Gen Trailer build > mep003a/m101a2

    Thank you for the link to that thread! I will read through it when I sit down tonight... I see prices all over the place so I guess that I'm not 100% sure. The seller had bought around 20 of these 003a's one year ago at a local GSA auction. He was selling them to people he knew for $850...

    Brainstorming a Gen Trailer build > mep003a/m101a2

    Valid point. I am going to go look at/purchase one tomorrow. I will haul it home with the trailer that I have & that should give me an idea of how it fits in there. According to Al Gores internet I should have 13.5" of total clearance between the wheel wells. I was hoping to either center it...

    Brainstorming a Gen Trailer build > mep003a/m101a2

    Hello all, I have the opportunity to purchase a MEP-003a & I think it's exactly what I am looking for... simple mechanical diesel genset! I am actually considering snagging two because the price is reasonable. My initial idea is to mount one inside my m101a2 trailer. I love the idea of...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    Thank you Steve, Marie, & all of the other volunteers! I had a great time at the event today! Unfortunately the weather was about as poor as could be expected for mid May. I enjoyed the layout of the event & wish that more could have attended. The lunch was tasty & all of the perks of...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    I am working to recruit some additional members from our local 'group'....so far I have 4 that want to attend but 2 of them were already at last year's event. I should be able to convince another couple of them... When do you want the rsvp's by? Looking forward to this event!

    I am looking forward to checking out this year's event. I am trying to recruit a few others from Omaha & surrounding areas to join me. Is there a pre registration required?

    Snagged a 2nd M1009

    Thank you everyone for the welcome! The turbo exhaust goes through the wheel well, down the passenger side frame rail & exits below the back of the passenger door. It doesn't protrude into the wheel well but you can see it. That's been one of my questions....is that the best practice Or...

    Snagged a 2nd M1009

    Hello, I am relatively new to this forum but I have read hundreds of posts in my quest for information! I joined a few months back when I bought a pretty rough '84 M1009 that had electrical issues. I worked on troubleshooting it some & plan on looking at it again this spring. I grew...

    Nice truck! I also live in the Omaha area. I am just getting into the cucv life with the recent purchase of two m1009's...one of which is drivable now. We should have a CUCV Cruise around Omaha!

    Newly aquired m1009...wiring issues

    Hello, I recently purchased a M1009 & have begun tracing wires & reading Technical Manuals. The previous owner only had the truck for a few months. He claims that the starter 'was acting up' so he replaced it. It hasn't ran since. There are 2 wires which were clearly burnt up near the...

    Thanks everyone. I have been busy doing my research on this site. It seems that the previous owner of my m1009 has made a number of modifications to the wiring. Lucky me!

    New to the site...Eastern Nebraska

    Hello all... I am in the process of buying my first MV. It's a 84 M1009. The vehicle is in ok shape. The plan is to fix her up & drive it! I picked the vehicle up for a fairly low cost because it currently won't start...I had looked at this exact same rig earlier this year but didn't make...
