Steel Soldiers now has an offical calendar available, read more about it at: Steel Soldiers 2021 calendar
Wanted to wait until I had the pump on and had the chance to try it out to make sure it was worth the high praises... I got it installed last night and the engine primed fast and started quickly, then ran absolutely great. My original pump, prior to rebuild (when it still ran), didn't handle rapid throttle changes: being at medium to high throttle and just letting go would often cause the engine to suddenly stall-not the case with this!That seems like an excellent deal. I fool around with old Farmall and Allis Chalmers tractors and a pump rebuild is always at least $600. Please post the company info.
Thanks!Bumner you’re selling, I’ve enjoyed your posts and youtube channel

I have an M1045A2 on the way.
Gotta make room for it in the garage.
So, there will be LOTS more reviews and videos. And our other writers have a bunch of HMMWVs as well. I stopped counting at 8.
Is that a modified seat back?View attachment 740133View attachment 740134View attachment 740135
Besides changing out all four half shafts today, changing the fluid in the hubs, rotating the tire....I am almost finished with my overhead switch panel...it came out terrific if I say so myself....cut in the switches, cut in the lights, still have to cut in two speakers but it is coming out way better than expected...tried t keep the military theme and used the rear seat back for the panel......
Is that a modified seat back?
Yes, Tried to keep the Military motif as they say, I'm not a purist by any means, ripped out the military seat drivers and passenger, put in 535 BMWi tan leather bucket seats, lowered the cross bar behind the seat, Tach in Dash, picked up a 4x8 sheet of plastic 1/2 thick rounded the edges and put that on top of the roof supports. gave the roof a nice solid look and now the **** rain water doesn't collect and pour into my window when I forget and sit into the drivers seat......and best of all ripped out that 3 speed and put in a 4l80e which is the best thing I ever did.....sweet and now I can hear myself think....before the trans swap...I would drive down the road with my hand on the shiftier making sure and perhaps hoping there was another gear I may have missed somewhere....not...
Oh man, I really want those door swingarm mounts. That's my idea of how I'd like to arm-up my soft top. Specifically, one for the passenger side since I plan to stick with two-door soft top.
I am guessing your friend does not read these posts ....I appear to have sold a friend on a transmission swap being a fun thing that he should look forward to. Therefore, I'm saving the least-technical and most labor-intensive part of the job for him tomorrow. (I disconnected everything and pulled all the lines and electronics...he gets to help hooking it up to the jack, getting the bell housing and crossmember disconnected, and wrestling that entire assembly out from under the HMMWV, since it didn't come out while on the jack the first time I tried the install.)
Tact is telling a man to go to **** and making him look forward to the trip.

Well, he did realize it was a trap as soon it was time to unload the transmission from the car. Pretty sure that his past experience with a transmission was for a much smaller FWD transaxle, so there was much yowling involved in him helping me remove this from the car.I am guessing your friend does not read these posts ....
