    Default M1028A3 new project

    I bought the m1028 that is listed in the for sale section here. The pics are in user UCRCCV postings. The truck is not running now it has a host of problems to address. I bought the truck to use as a camper and think it will be a fun project. The known problems are a bad starter and ring gear, likly the lift pump and injector asd well. I have read of the doghead realy modand filter base ect. I love the looks and the storage over the cab, maybe I will have better luck finding help working on this truck than my m35a2.

    I'm assuming this is the truck, from ECR CUCV.

    These fiberglass shelters are very cool, that's the only one I've seen still on a truck. I've seen 3 others but they were removed from the trucks before being sold. 2 of them were sold from Camp Johnson in Colchester, VT probably 6-8 years ago and another was at a surplus dealer in Colchester. I owned 2 of those 3 but never did anything with them. According to ECR CUCV your truck was from VT as well.

    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    That is the truck,not home yet will try to post photos with help. I type two slow says to refresh page. The truck needs a starter and flex plate, then find the cause of no fuel to injectors.

    I do plan to use as a camper, love the looks of the truck and the storage above the cab is perfect. I did not know the body was fiberglass, thanks dr evil.

    I have been reading the great info posted here and plan to do many of the suggested improvements. The doghead starter relay being first on the list, thanks doghead. Will change out the fuel filter to something better.
