    Default Another M1010 owner

    There seems to be a trend with M1010 threads right now!

    I have been reading a lot here and finally pulled the trigger on a M1010. My original intent was to drive it home as the owner was confident it should be ok. Well, it died on the road test, lost power, but would idle. I walked back to his house and explained it was down the block. we did get it back to his house with a tow. He came down on his price but I had no way to get it home. He said he would have it looked at and we would keep in touch...

    When I checked with him he said it started up after sitting and backed in the driveway no problem. Good info for diagnostics! He said he was going to just put a filter on it. Uhmm... My thoughts were that wasn't going to solve the issue. I slept on it. The next morning I knowing that it would at least start up again, I made him a offer saying just leave it as is. Some haggling that ended with him saying, "If my wife asks, you paid me this $$." OK!

    Thus started the recovery...

    Start of list: Drop tank, replace all rubber lines,

    The filter / water separator on those are notorious. A new one may very well be all it needs. UNLESS, the fuel system is full of junk. Quick check, undo the outlet from the mechanical pump and crank it over. If the fuel is clean and clear yer GTG with a clean filter / separator. If it's ugly, then proceed with full system cleaning.

    This where the story got worse?!?! The then owners son in law came by and did him favor. He stuck a filter on the truck, literally, no fuel in it, no bleeding and left it. It of course wouldn't start when I came to get it. Seller took another couple hundred off so we loaded it up. The tank is already out and all rubber is getting replaced for long reliable service. A new tank, Delphi lift pump, and spin on filter are in the works.

    Thanks! Going to put some work into her to get more reliability! So far found the glow plugs are 12v, resister is gone from the firewall. New ends in glow plug wires which are basic crimp on one without insulation which will be replaced. AC60G's are here. Relay for doghead is here. Needs DUVAC removed and alternators updated. And working on second tank while apart. Congrats on yours too!

    Not necessarily a bad thing, have you checked out the threads on bypassing them?

    DH relay, a must IMHO. What's your plan with the alts? Sticking with a 12/24v system?

    Second tank, nice! Hope you post up how you do it. And thanks, it's taken a while but a real fun project for sure and driving it has been a blast.

    I understand it's not bad, the way it's setup seemed to work when I heard it run. Similar to the link but without fuse or circuit breaker

    DH Relay = Done! As far as the alt's, I'm thinking the dual 12v ones...

    I'm working on how I want to do it... I found the valve I want to use and figuring out where I want to mount it

    Default Progress is being made...

    Things are coming in and coming together... progress is being made on the fuel system and clean up continues. Seems slow but it has only been a week. Need to find some tank mounts and a skid plate for the other side. Also looking for a passenger side fenderwell...

    My valve came in... it's beefy. I've decided to use the existing hole in the floor. It makes it accessible and not too intrusive. I started on the lines under the hood and mounting the new filter. I still need to replace all the return lines on the injectors. I also did the one between the return and the injection pump, The one under the intake wasn't that bad... one knee on the a/c compressor... one on the rad support...and an elbow on the upper alt. Snuck in to the clamp from the side...
