    What is this part- where can I obtain it, or should I make one?

    You can install a helicoil in a damaged hole and it is better than new. Just do not go any deeper with the drill than the hole is already. This can be done without removing the head.

    M1009 engine difference

    All of the cucv's are made from 1984 parts. The military wanted them all the same. The year they were made is the only difference.

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

    Actually changing the brushes and bushings and a few other items just to get a starter barely working is a "rebuilt" starter. It often has a few days warranty or none.

    NP241 Transfer Case

    I have run several 205 transfer cases. Both 4 speeds and 400 automatics. They all shift out of 4 high best by going forward then let off gas and shift to 2 high.

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

    I add Power Service diesel additive every time I fill up year around. I use winter formula in the cold months to prevent gelling. Good for the injection pump and injectors both. Also runs a little quiter.
