    Was driving 5 he other day when I went to honk the horn and noticed the horn wasn't working. I saw the ignition switch was on but looked at the guages and saw the volt meter was dead... All guages were off... no horn or turn signals. It was like the switch was off. So now the truck will no...

    How to Fasten/Secure a 1008 Cargo Cover

    In my searching Ive seen a few pics of the twist locks that holds the vinyl cargo cover down but they surely arent drilled into the side of the bed. Let me run a scenario by you guys: I have a 1008 with a behind-the-cab tool box. I dont believe I can use the troop seats AND the tool box so Id...

    No electric; Ignition Switch?

    Went to start the truck yesterday and in the middle of cranking it cut out like I flipped the ignition switch off. Now, the truck has no electrical power at all, like a fuse is blown. Batteries are tight, no obvious pops, burning smell, magic smoke, or wires hanging loose. At the same time I...

    M1009 Rear Seat Donor to Tired M1008 Bench

    Can I pull the bottom of the bench out of a 1009 and drop it in my 1008? The ends of the 1008 seat currently in my pick up must ve had an elephant sit on them. The springs dont spring very much. Otherwise i will look for a regular 40/60 out of a surburban or pick up. Just seems that 1009 rear...

    Bleeding the Master Cyc

    I read through some old threads about the master cyclinder being bled and didnt recall doing this when I first rec the deuce from Shelby. I had bled the wheel cyclinders and noticed that the brakes seemed a little firmer (when i pick the truck up - months ago) but never did the MC. So when I...

    When Adding a Muffler Do You Adjust the Valves?

    Had this discussion the other night in the chat lounge where the general consensus was "not necessary" but my friend who I consider versed with the motor says ANY back pressure placed a motor not initially set for a muffler would require a valve timing adjustment. So who is right? I agree the...

    Just got some stuff, now what?

    Went to visit a friend of mine at a local city garage and he mentioned they had a wrecker and 2 dump trucks. They still had the radio mounts, antannae mounts, and the wiring. I asked and he said I could have it if I didnt short the truck out. So I will take a few pics tomorrow and show you...

    Gladhand Shut Off Valve size

    I've consulted the manual to no avail. Is the 1/4 turn valve that shuts off the air to the emergency gladhand a regular, run of the mill 3/4" valve? Mine appears to be leaking. I will probably end up thrashing that whole assembly to replace it. Things that old don't want to come apart easy.

    WIF light/ WTS light seem to Flicker

    In the morning when I get in the blazer sometimes the Wait to Start light comes on, or flickers, or doesnt. I have a manual gP button I push anyway so its not a huge ordeal but the Water in Fuel light blinks simultaneously with it. If the road is rough or I slam the door they will also...

    TH400 has Passed (mourning its passing)

    Cold weather and age have conspired to put me afoot in this miserable weather. The CUCV that I love is now immobile. I have a fella about a mile away who owns a shop says he will rebuild my own with a torque converter for a mere $875. How can I say no.... So I went to fire up the M35 to go tow...
