  1. CUCV?

    Moot point, buying a 1st gen Dodge Cummins... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  2. CUCV?

    No opinions? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Well, I'm selling a non-running project that I will never get to, planning to convert that cash into a running/driving toy. I'm fairly set on either a k30 CUCV or a 1st Gen Dodge Cummin (1989 to 1993). I understand the majority of the CUCV driver train (NA Detroit powerplant, auto trans [th400?], chain drive tcase, corp14/Dana60). What are the inherent weaknesses of that platform? Obviously finding one rust free may present a problem in Pennsylvania, isn't there a "black box" and glow plugs on the Detroit that cause grief? I guess the other question would be driveability? 4.56s, a non-OD trans, and a diesel may not allow much road speed? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Flange kit is probably the washer and the locking nut... The Dodge dealer staked my old nut on when they attempted the repair on the Dodge 2500 I had...truck under warranty. Talk about a heated discussion over that... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. I had an 11.5AAM in a Dodge with a pinion leak, looked like the Valdez leaking, I had to drive it to Washington (state) and then home (Pennsylvania). In all those miles and looking like the oil was running out of the pinion, it hardly made a dent in the oil level in the differential. Gear oil seems to make a larger mess than the volume. If it's just wet and dripping slightly, it shouldn't hurt to drive it a while. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. 2500 HD w/ Weight Distribution Hitches

    It could be just the opposite...I've seen toyhaulers that have almost centered axles...it could be bouncing worse because the trailer becomes tail heavy/lighter on the tongue when the weight is removed. Ideally, the bars should be set with a loaded trailer...probably could run without the WDH with no load (assuming a 2500). I adjust mine whether I have water or not (50 gallons way forward of the axles). Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. 2500 HD w/ Weight Distribution Hitches

    I have two setups, a 2.5" cushioned ball mount and a used torsion bar WDH for my small 24' camper. I use the ball for local trips and the WDH for longer trips. I don't think I need...a WDH, but it does make a slight improvement in ride. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. Have the universal joints been replaced? A dry joint will cause a squeak/chatter as it seizes up. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. rear chattering

    Still has clutches... We had several discussions on this over the years...it is a LSD that overcomes the slip of the clutches using the flyweights. YMMV Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. rear chattering

    That's my thinking as well and the fluid was changed which lead to the condition... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. rear chattering

    Before you get into rebuilding, dump a bottle of LSD modifier in and see if the issue goes away or decreases...you have nothing to lose at this point. Fluid type/brand can make a difference... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. And yet you are the first to berate and belittle someone for their opinions....you are the definition of a bully, period. I have tried to have civil and useful discussions on here, and yet you will be the first to pick apart an opinion that isn't exactly yours for your own amusement. And yes, you did twist my words...and I deleted that post because I realized you are no different than some of the clients I deal with...the difference is the fact that I can ignore you without a single repercussion and the second more glaring fact that is I don't need to participate in this forum at all (I have nothing to lose or gain by participating), I do so on my own free will. How useful will this forum be after you drive some of the more knowledgeable members away? I'm at that point, and this very well could be my last post here because of you (this isn't the first time you have singled me out for one of your "rebuttles"). Have a nice day... 2012 2500hd 6.0l CCSB 4wd
  13. I daily drive mine, 90+ miles round trip. I use mine for hauling firewood, work around the house, towing the camper, etc...it is also the vehicle of choice for our cross country trips. I have a 2500, I don't think I could go 1500 the way I use mine...may even step into a 3500 the next go around. 2012 2500hd 6.0l CCSB 4wd
  14. Yeah, I've watched those mile-o-meters...they start out like that and drop 2 to 3 miles for every actual mile traveled...hand calculate it. 2012 2500hd 6.0l CCSB 4wd
