    DSCF5605.jpgDSCF5604.jpgPOP QUIZ: This is a special M10 1.5 shoulder bolt that is used on the CUCV 6.2 diesel. Does anyone know where it is used? Clue there are only 2 of these special bolts on the engine. And the entire truck from my experience. Of course you could use it many places but it is application specific and the shoulder on the bolt serves that purpose. I just had a friend that needed one and I gave him one of mine. I spent an hour sorting thru bolts and found 3 more. I marked them and put them away. I also know I could use any M10 1.5 in its place but choose to do it correctly each time. The God's at GM had a reason. Have a Great Day.

    You are correct. Most CUCV's I work on have the wrong bolts in many places. My friends has 3/8" bolts in his and he ate belts and it rattled all tetime. He ask me one day to check it out and I went to loosen the belts and they were 9/16" heads on both alternators. I knew something was wrong. After taping the holes and putting in the correct M10 bolts all was well. I also dislike hardware store M10 bolts with 17m/m hex heads. They go in the scrap bucket. These aren't VW's. Have a Great Day. Thanks for the answer.

    DSCF5607.jpgDSCF5606.jpgDSCF5611.jpgI was down in the barn cleaning up and winterizing some of my equipment and I was side tracked by my M1009 project. I decided I had to move the M109 back in the bay a bit to fit a tractor in to work on it. At that point I had parts laying out and decided to install them onto the M1009. Mainly the 2 alternators with the solid pullies and the rebuilt direct drive starter. I put the proper cable supports on the oil pan and installed the starter support bracket. Everything is going together nice and neat. I want to have the body setting back on the frame by next week after the 10th of November. Time to roll up the project for the winter and relax. I have snow plows and other winter equipment to work on and operate. Can't risk working and painting in the cold. Makes for haste and haste makes waste. Spring will be here and I can restart where I left off. It should be really simple from that point. I am looking to retail this vehicle when completed. So any prospective buyers can start saving now. DSCF5608.jpgDSCF5609.jpgDSCF5610.jpgRebuilt starter from a local rebuilder. Same as the alternators. I have everything under the engine all buttoned up. Now I must move to getting the fuel tank installed during the week. I have been stalling on the power steering pump as well. I need to get new hoses. Have a Great Day. It was a decent day for working outside. Also for leaf raking and clean up. It never ends. All is well. Sold my Silverado yesterday and delivered it to a customer that came in on the train. Went to the big city of Harrisburg yesterday. That was easy. First caller bought it and paid the price I was asking. DSCF5603.jpg

    DSCF5612.jpgDSCF5613.jpgDSCF5614.jpgDSCF5615.jpgLooking at the transmission kickdown wire I see trouble and wanted to get the wire tied up. I used some 3M tie blocks. They stick very good on clean dry material. Nice place to attach with a standard zip tie. DSCF5616.jpgDSCF5617.jpgDSCF5618.jpgDSCF5623.jpgDSCF5624.jpgI also received a new set of Energy Suspension transmission / transfer case mounts. They have been improved since the last time I bought these. The last several I purchased did not have the bottom plate on the bushing. I had to saw the old one off the rubber and reuse them. Huge improvement. Made for easy installation. Fit perfect with some never seize on the bolts. I was going to settle for the pressure treated wood block but was afraid it would get spotted at Mecham. Have a Great Day

    DSCF5619.jpgDSCF5620.jpgDSCF5621.jpgDSCF5622.jpgAmazon is great. I don't even have to go to the store anymore. New AC Delco fuel sock is a must have item. DSCF5626.jpgDSCF5627.jpgDSCF5628.jpgDSCF5629.jpgDSCF5630.jpgI also received some unexpected help tonight. My Wife came home from work and was content to help me get the fuel tank and fuel tank skid plate in place and properly attached. Then she replaced the fuel lines on the fuel tank. I made a new ground wire for the sending unit. Drilled an 1/8" hole and used a star washer and a self tapping screw to attach the ground wire to the sending unit tab. I attached the other end to the frame with a new self tapping bolt and star washer. See no reason it won't work. I also used more of the seat belt material on the fuel tank and fuel tank strap. Caulked it fast. It looks and works great. DSCF5625.jpgI also came across a few ground cables with nice 1/4" eye on one end a 3/8" eye on the other end. They were a bit longer then I needed but make a nice Generator ground wire. I have another one to ground the engine to the frame and then from the buss bar ground to the frame. It helps solve grounding issues on a few of my other CUCV's. More progress later. I need to get this body back on the frame before I close shop for the winter. I have the radiator support all ready to mount up. More progress later. Everything went well tonight. Maybe it was my helper that made the progress happen so smoothly.

    DSCF5632.jpgDSCF5633.jpgToday I had a little time after work so I decided to get the tow bar tubes installed. I painted the tubes a couple years back for another project but being late in the season painting is hard to get done and dry. I can paint more next season. I needed some where to hook the tow bar to pull the chassis out and push it back in while I ready the body for undercoating. Hoping to get that done in the next couple days. DSCF5634.jpgDSCF5635.jpgI bought new fasteners and they were to short so I cleaned the old bolts and just used new nuts and washers. It will work out fine. After everything was together I remembered I don't have a truck to push and pull it out of the shop. I am driving a Cadillac till my new truck arrives. Hoping soon. Kubota can pull it out and push it back in. DSCF5636.jpgHave a Great Day. I hope to get more work done tomorrow. I will post the progress.
