    84 m1009 cucv chevy blazer build-up

    Any particular reason for using Ultra Blue or will The Right Stuff and/or Ultra Black do fine? I found a Permatex dealer over here and after seeing lots of people using their products with success I bought The Right Stuff, Ultra Black and Copper Spray-a-gasket.

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

    A friend of mine saw an ad for a CUCV (I sneaked it into our WhatsApp group :rolleyes:) and asked me to go have a look with him. He bought it. :LOL: We went out for a bit of offroading, but unfortunatly my only drivable truck, the K1500, is over it's MOT so I had to bring my bike. Previous...

    84 m1009 cucv chevy blazer build-up

    I've been thinking of ditching the HMMWV crossover I bought and using a dual thermostat crossover instead to go with a high flow water pump. There are some threads on the internet about modifying the throttle cable bracket. Search for "DS4 to DB2" conversion, here's one. You could also try...

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

    Bought a 6.5 and 4L80E, both original '98. Putting a 4L80E in my resto-mod has been on my mind for a while and for the price I couldn't let this go. Even came with the transfer case that wasn't advertised. I know of a member here that spent double the money on just a motor (with turbo though)...

    M1009 Fan clutch question

    I bought this Duramax fan blade for my 6.5 K1500. Should fit a 6.2 as well. 4 (m8?) bolts. It's a bit bigger then stock with more airflow. Might require some fan shroud trimming.

    M1028 6.5/4L80e project and questions

    Just sent you a message on WhatsApp showing Leroy's turbo master (spool stick as he calls it), same idea though. Removing the vacuum pump removes any future problems. Don't forget about gauges. Turbo pressure and exhaust gas temperature. I got mine from vdo-webshop.nl. I did however buy a...

    GLOW PLUG nightmare !

    Give the guys at usa2you.nl a call or e-mail. They'll get it to you. I had them handle 4 or 5 shipments. Their fee is 30 or 35 euros, so best to get more parts you'll need, but with their volume rates at FedEx and money saved on import fees it'll be cheaper then having it shipped by the seller...

    M1009 6.5 TD swap?

    I'd say HX35 on the 6.5.

    Turboing a 6.2l build (another one)

    I have what I believe to be a GM4, it doesn't whistle like that... Shouldn't be much different then the GM8? Maybe it's the stock exhaust? I need to get that diamond eye exhaust + crossover asap lol And a HX40... Damn covid,. I need to limit my spending, I have to keep a decent buffer for a...

    Buss bar blues

    Nice. Those crimpers are awesome. I made new battery cables myself 2 weeks ago. Using Chinese hydraulic crimper (about 35 bucks). Used 2/0 and 4 gauge wire. A pre-made set of cables for my K1500 would set me back $250 probably $350 total with shipping. For that money I'll have made cable sets...

    CUCV Title/VIN

    VIN is stamped into the chassis. It's on the right side, I believe about 3' from the front suspension.

    Turboing a 6.2l build (another one)

    Nice! What turbo is that? Looks like a GM, didn't know they whistle like that?

    6.2/6.5 Turbo Build

    I didn't mean to change this thread into a thread about cooling, but it shouldn't be overlooked when installing a turbo IMO. For the 6.5 I bought for the M1028 I decided to run a single stat crossover. I've did a lot of research and concluded at the time that the gains from the dual stat...

    6.2/6.5 Turbo Build

    I recently installed a turbo spool stick from Leroy on my 98 K1500 6.5 and after lots of Googling and reading forums, I concluded that max 8 PSI is a safe pressure for a stock engine. It may peak to 10, but for a very short time. OBD2 trucks will go into limp mode if pressure above 8 PSI is...

    M1009 6.5 TD swap?

    Crankshaft position sensor. I think that's where the tach signal comes from. https://quadstartuning.com/collections/engine-internals/products/crankshaft-position-sensor-breakout-harness You can run dual alternators on the serpentine belt drive. I got everything to convert my 6.5 back to...

    steering gear adjust

    The rubber will always have some play and more so the older it gets. A U-joint is much tighter, it removes some of the slack in the steering wheel. It makes it faster, more responsive and you get better road feedback. There are aftermarket shafts/joints available as well with bigger, stronger...

    steering gear adjust

    Get a steering shaft from a Jeep XJ (84 to 00). Pretty much a direct fit. Replaces the rubber steering coupler with a U-joint. Drastically improved steering.

    That's the ABS module.
