    Question for the military guys about the m1008 & m1009\'s

    Can someone tell me what the military used the large round plug under the center of the dash for ?
    It has about 35 pins (about 2/3 have pinouts), it can be unplugged under the hood just below the resistor.
    I am trying to simplify the wiring in this truck & want to know if I can do away with it.

    Thanks
    Ray

    That plug is for the radio/commo equipment and to my knowledge is useless outside of the military. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif It is supposed to provide power and connect to the whip antenna(s) that is usually mounted on the back corner(s) of the vehicle. You should be able to remove it without it affecting the rest of the trucks function or just ignore it, but removing it will definitely simplify your wiring! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Good luck!

    Actually I believe it is the hook-up for a STE-ICE diagnostic machine that no-one ever used outside of training. We might be talking about different plugs but the large connector mounted under the center of the dash should be the STE-ICE connector. The plug was common between alot of the light wheeled vehicles.

    I think your right about the plug. It looks like some kind of diagnostic connector.
    I have parted out alot of these trucks, but never messed with the 6.2's.
    Im tring to get this one running, does that have to be there ?
    Im new to the 6.2's but not the rest of these trucks.
    Does that make sense ?

    I don't believe it "needs" it, but I've never traced it back to its connections to make sure some of its wiring isn't shared with some other component.

    its for the STE/ice diagnostics computer. Your truck will run fine with out it. At least mine does.
