    Thanks .
    25 plus years ago it was the thing.
    Not so much nowadays.
    Over blown and over carbureted but it's paid for.
    They can get all the HP out of something that fits under a hood.
    It was my first car. Still have it.
    Swore I'd kill the first person that dented it. Ended up marrying her.
    Still married , still have the car.
    When I bought the HMMWV she said .
    "If you really want that thing it's going to be the last HUMMER your ever going to get"
    (If I had only known what she meant at the time)

    Now lets get back to HMMWV's

    Changed out the in-tank fuel pick-up filter. Question ? How many Steel Soldiers have replaced this part?

    Swapped to Pittman arm and idler arm. It drives like a dream now. I still have one tire thatís a little out of balance. Thatís the next fire to fight.

    I did when I dropped my tank, cleaned it, changed the sender, gasket and filler hose, and THAT thing. WHAT a bear to get it onto the pickup tube. Took more effort than Iíd expected sanding/buffing, pressing it into place.

    When I die, heaven will be me punching engineers in the face all day; H**l for them will be getting punched in the face all day.
    A day without rivnuts is like a day without a Humvee mod.

    Sorry to sidetrack the thread.
    Back in the day I had 1966 GTO with a blower and side draft carbs that had just north of 500HP... and I was unbeatable. I had to box and re-enforce the frame to prevent cracks, and I chained the engine down because I used to rip through motor mounts until I went solid.

    NOW, you can go and buy a car with 400-500 hp as a daily driver. 800 hp if you buy a Tesla.

    220.jpg All the big stuff
    143.jpg Weak springs
    224.jpgAll of the nuts and bolts replaced. About $150 bucks worth.
