    "ProMax" cylinder head review

    You are a very dedicated glutton for punishment. But very appreciated by your followers.

    FYI on Engine Bay Fuse Box

    In preparation for the install of my new P T Wiring Solutions battery cable upgrade, I discovered something that I've overlooked for a couple of years. The battery cable upgrade has a new lead going to the fuse box connection on the left rear horizontal 'stud'. This is something that I've...

    Will, need to pick your brain. Have a M1028 that the GPR failed. Got a replacement BWD GPR1 that wont work with glow plug controller. Has continuity between two small posts. The original GPR does not. It just quit switching. Do you have a brand and part number for a good heavy duty...

    P400 Progress

    I'm afraid that the most reinforced industrial strength spandex sports bra wont be able to lift and separate that one out of the way!!!

    Batteries goes toes ups.

    Oh, BTW, another quirk of the CUCV is that if the GEN2 bulb in the dash is burned out, Alternator 2, the drivers side alternator will not work and not charge the rear battery.

    Batteries goes toes ups.

    OK, from personal experience, while you are working on the batteries, go ahead and remove ALL the wiring from the buss bars, remove the bars and clean everything thoroughly. Think Scotchbrite pads and contact cleaner on the bars and the ring terminals. They can be pitifully corroded from the...

    Batteries goes toes ups.

    In regards to the red top batteries that you are referring to, are they sealed AGM batteries? You said they were remote mounted in a box? No possible moisture or condensation tracking between the battery posts? Where are you grounding the batteries? Directly to the frame, close to the...

    Batteries goes toes ups.

    Ok, I have a quick question in regards to the military truck statement. Is it actually a military M1008, M1010, M1028 or M1031? Those were equipped with quasi 12V/24V systems that had two independently ground alternators and a 24V starter. Was your truck converted to a 12v system before you...

    My Water to Air intercooler install

    She definitely has that 'You better take me serious' look to her. Well done!

    My Water to Air intercooler install

    What's your ground clearance as it is now? Does it still clear a concrete parking bumper?

    My Water to Air intercooler install

    Well, you what that means, a centered round fog lamp "Arc Reactor" has to be placed in that beast!

    My Water to Air intercooler install

    Ya know, it's beginning to resemble a Tony Stark style creation to me. Maybe a grinning Mark I Iron Man bumper!

    Anxiously awaiting a pic of that bumper mounted beneath the grille and front end!

    My Water to Air intercooler install

    That's beginning to look like it would make one heck of a road kill vacuum / squirrel sucker!! All kidding aside, it's looking good.

    2001 GM 8.1 typical life expectancy?

    Thanks for the advice WW. I received a new AC Delco PS pump from RockAuto.com yesterday! I've not had good experiences from any rebuilt PS pumps over the years either, so I avoid them myself. I will look up the filter and get one ordered before I start.

    Fuel system maintenance after a breakdown

    Leroy, I've been using your LP Relay wiring harness for quite a while now. I will be upgrading it the WTS version in a few days.

    2001 GM 8.1 typical life expectancy?

    It was a service truck for a propane delivery truck servicing/certifying outfit. It had an AutoCrane on right rear corner that was removed and installed on their new truck. I was lucky they didn't remove the outriggers.

    2001 GM 8.1 typical life expectancy?

    Got some pics to show. The drivers side of the seat is shot, as usual. The power steering pump is whining. The tires need replaced. The bed is bolted, which is a plus. The hitch is welded to the bottom of the frame and will be ground off. I like that the frame doesn't appear to have been...
