    MadDawg's new CUCV M1009 - recovery NY to VA, 375 miles

    Well, had to get another vehicle since the Dodge is pretty much toast and can't move around much anymore. Knew that camogriz in NY state had his CUCV M1009 for sale along with a M101 trailer for a good price, thought it might be a good candidate for a semi-daily driver as well as a vehicle I...

    information on M101 3/4-ton radio antenna support trailer?

    There used to be a pile of 3/4-ton trailers at Colemans' Surplus that were antenna support trailers.

    who do you recommend for rebuilding CUCV injection pumps?

    Have a few CUCV M1009s in the area I am looking at, relatively-rust free units which I like, but two of them have IP issues, and will probably require rebuild. Do any of you recommend anybody who rebuilds these pumps, good job for a good price? I priced new injection pumps from NAPA and...

    pickup in Portsmouth - where's that guy who was in the Coast Guard Reserve?

    There was a guy here a while back, maybe a year or so ago, who was located near Portsmouth and he was in the Coast Guard Reserve. Said he could get in, pickup from GL, and get off base in a matter of minutes, since he had a Reservist ID and just got waved in. I think he had a 5-ton M923 or...

I know the 5-ton wreckers are double-framed or strengthened more than standard 5-tons, but wasn't sure about...

    audio amplifier ideas to mate with R-390A - schematics needed

    I dug out my R-390A that I was given a few years back by a friend of mine, I have to test it out and see how it performs. It's a beast, and not in the best condition internally, so it will probably need some parts and TLC. One thing I've been thinking of is I need to build a rack-mount audio...
