Re: 85 CUCV Build

Update:

Labor Day Wknd 3-5 Sep 11

Had the interior harness in and out a few times trying to get the B/O wiring installed correctly.

I'm at a stand still until I can review the 87 crew wiring diagrams a little more closely along with the CUCV. I carefully extracted the the packard terminals from the CUCV bulk head and fuse box to reinstall in the Civy's and I have a couple circuits installed incorrectly.

Service lamps all work but I lost brake lights, the left T/S and flashers honks the horn continuously, right T/S activates the buzzer continuously and the horn button does nothing.

I also disassembled the cluster and lined the entire housing and the cluster cover with 3M aluminum tape for reflection purposes for the red back lighting LEDs. I also installed the lighter socket and the fiberoptics to the ash tray and installed some corner Kicker dash speakers I got on the forsale section.

I would like to find a good factory Delco ETS AM/FM radio too.

Re: 85 CUCV Build

Yes those would be some nice upgrades. Good to see you workin on it. Wish I could find a crew around here as good of shape as yours, the odds of that are next to none thou. I have only seen 5 around here including mine. Getting some parts are difficult.

Re: 85 CUCV Build

Update from: 10-28-11

Took several attempts to get the wiring correct but I finally got it figured out and have the blackout lamp circuit installed into the factory fuse box (no bubba splices) My last attempt had me puzzled for a while...left turn signal constant horn, right turn signal & hazards constant seat belt buzzer no service lights, brake lights, or horn

Installed the harness back in today got it all buttoned up and now no gauges or 4wd light

Had to get away from it for a while so I removed the grille to access the horn. I removed the dual horn wiring from my donor front harness and swapped it with the single horn wire in the CUCV harness. Had an extra horn and works as it should but turns out they are both "F" note horns so I need to go to the pick n pull and get a different note for the factory dual horn option. I also installed some bling from a parting out purchase over on the 67-72 site. It was the chrome and gold bow tie and that isn't quite tactical so hit it with the wire wheel to scuff it up and shot it with a few coats of flat black.



Did not realize I really do not have any complete body pictures other then the one in the drive with snow when I first brought it home so I went to the park to take a few good shots of it.

Re: 85 CUCV Build

Update from 6-23-12

Been a while since I made an update but I started working on the CUCV again over the last month. I ordered some red LED lamps for the instrument cluster for the same military look that are in the M35s and M923s. I also got another set of dual Horns with the "A" and the "F" notes so I swapped in the "A" note behind the NATO plug and the horns sound 100% better.

I disassembled the cluster and cleaned it good. Instead of painting it I thought I'd use some 3M foil tape I have had for a while. I actually had the cluster installed and kept blowing gage fuses so I thought I might have crossed or shorted a wire and ended up pulling the wire harness again for the umpteenth time;( turns out I had got a little sloppy with the foli tape and was shorting some circuits causing the fuse to blow. I reassembled everthing tonight and waited until dark tonight to get a picture only to find out the Fuel back light might not be working but here it is:
