My new, well new to me 1987 M-1008 CUCV
I bought it on Ebay... 25,000 miles.... we drove all day to get it and all
day to bring it home.
We did take a break on the way home at the military vehicle museum in
Lexington Nebraska. What a place!
M1008 CUCV from GSA auction in SC ready to run!
It took about an hour to install batteries into this truck and it was
running! Once Lavarok hooked the driveshaft back up (disconnected in order
to tow) and added a little water to the radiator this "display of power"
took place. Note the smile on the face of the new proud owner!
beating a M1008 CUCV
M1008 CUCV on the bottom of tank trap at hollister. I made it about half
way up before the long wheelbase, low ride height and horrible stock
steering wouldnt get me any further. Luckily there was another wheeler that
helped pull me back down when i got high centered. Otherwise, that would
have been a lot of digging.

Lara Spotts rides in the M35A2C
This is my cousin Lara Spotts visiting from Palm Springs Florida and this
video is dedicated to her. If she knew how to drive a stick shift I would
do a video of her driving the truck which is equipt with Air-O-Matic power
steering and air over hydraulic brakes.
Military M1009 CUCV Blazer winch pulling out tree stump
My neighbor needed a few tree stumps pulled out of the ground and asked if
I could help with my winch on my 1984 Chevy M1009 CUCV Blazer. The first
one came out like cutting through butter, but did not think of recording it
until after I pulled it. So for the second stump got the camera and this
one was a PITA to get out, so makes for a good video. After cutting a few
roots it came right out and made it look easy, but it took about 45mins to
cut it out to pull. So here is the video, enjoy!
CUCV Fuel Filter Base and Fuel Sensor Switch 008
My 1968 M1008A1 CUCV was getting hard to start at times or it would start
and very shortly afterwards shut down for no apparent reason. After doing
a search on the SteelSoldiers website I found the source of this problem to
be a leaking "Fuel Sensor Switch" which is housed inside the filter base
underneath of the fuel filter. I purchased a new filter base from and Ebay
seller at a substantial cost thinking it would arrive complete and ready to
bolt onto the firewall of my truck; unfortunately it did not come with the
fuel sensor switch. Having purchased a new switch from "Owens Export" a
while back I commenced the installation process only to break the new
switch in the process. Once I figured out the problem I decided to share
my findings with other members of SteelSoldiers - if I did this I am sure
others will too! Apparently there were two different filter bases or
"blocks" as some people call them and one of the differences is the
diameter of the opening where the fuel sensor switch is housed. This
indicates to me that there must be a different part number or part for the
newer filter base when it comes to replacing the fuel sensor switch.
Hopefully by watching this video it will prevent another person from
destroying a replacement sensor switch which obviously was not made for one
of the fuel filter bases.
NOTE: The newer "replacement" fuel filter bases have eliminated the need
for the Fuel Sensor Switch so there is no need to place one in the "hole"
where one would normally go. The use for the Fuel Sensor Switch was
initially for the STE/ICE test set which is a multi-function meter
requiring electrical feedback from sending units like the Fuel Sensor
Switch. Since there were so many problems with sensor switch leaks, the
replacement fuel blocks were "internally blocked" for the sensor switch and
that is why these little white things do NOT fit into the newer fuel
blocks. If you intend to use the older fuel filter base you can,and
probably will wind up replacing the fuel sensor switch at least once while
owning your CUCV.
M1010 CUCV Military Ambulance recovery from South Carolina
This is a 1985 M1010 CUCV Military Ambulance with the famous 6.2 Detroit
Diesel motor, turbo 400 transmission
and NP 208 transfer case. This vehicle was located at the Naval Weapons
Base in South Carolina and was purchased from a Govliquidation (GL)
auction. Really nice vehicle! I want one myself by the way! The other
vehicle is an M1009 CUCV which is also owned and operated by Ian and came
from another GL auction. It drove the distance from South Carolina to Palm
Bay with no major problems other than a faulty bright/dimmer switch which
we by-passed without difficulty. We reached speeds of 65 - 70 miles per
hour during most of the trip. Great purchase Ian!

1984 M1008 First Start
I have a brother that bought one of these rigs before I did. He got his
started on the same day I got my m1008 going.
M1010 CUCVShark Attack at Al's Air Force Base
My friend Lavarok drove his "Shark" over to the house today to show me all
of the improvements he has made on the vehicle since we retrieved it from a
Navy base in South Carolina. This particular ambulance was used by the US
Navy as a "special purpose" vehicle, thus the nickname of "shark". Now I
want one of these myself....but it will HAVE to be a SHARK otherwise it
will be an inferior M1010!
