It's not real update, but still small progress.

BW governor solenoid is replaced, but it do not fix the problem- I think readjusting voltage regulator settings might help.

Also I brought Sport headlights and 98 under dash harness (with all power options- hard to find item) -this was the missing link to finish overhead display,power windows and doorlock upgrade. It take some month before they arrive to me.

Need to buy list :
1. Borgeson steering gear and shaft
2. All 4 rust free doors
3. New door seals and weather strip


Need to install list:

1. Webasto - engine and cab heater
2. ugly aftermarket rear glass need to replace with original 98 rear glass
3. replace the front axle(its fully functional ,but no locker) with fully repaired/with locker


So far I am happy with result.

Update:

One of my H1 wheel/tire combo is leaking the air, I do not knew is the problem wheel o-ring or tire itself.

After few week search for spare 16.5 wheel (I have spare MTR tire allready) I got 3 Hummer H1 12-bolt wheels.

The 12 bolt wheels create new problem, the wheels are bolted toghether with 5 side nuts , my 24 bolt har regular nuts (like at left in picture)

picute from Internet
Click the image to open in full size.

I have two ptions : built toool for 5 side nuts or some how remove the nuts from wheel or to buy normal nuts

Notice: in my side of the Eart the Hummer H1 is very rare, only 2 or 3 in my country and to find wheels with reasonable price is like to win lottery

There is a thread about the 5 sided nuts over on Pirate 4x4. Looks like SK tools makes sockets for them. Something like this:

SK Hand Tools 34205 1/2" Drive 5 Point Impact Utility Socket 13/16" | SJDiscounttools.com

probably just need a new o-ring in the one wheel, but also check for a leak around the valve stem in the rim. it unbolts from the rim and has an o-ring in the back of it as well. some soapy water sprayed on it should tell you.

Now , more than 2 years later, the truck is again street legal.

But after long staing period have been hard, the front brake calipers were not fully functional and they overheat front bearings

The Hummer H1 wheels are terrible, they vibrating ,looks like I have to balance them.

Few Pictures

Click the image to open in full size.

At this picture almost all my different projects are at the same picture.

1. 99 truck
2. 94 dump truck frame
3. hot rod truck frame (originally 2005 2wd Ram 2500) with H2 wheels

Click the image to open in full size.

I hope after few weeks I can show more prictures why they are all together .

Now 300 miles later I can confirm:

1. I hate 2nd gear start at every traffic light. The spare tranny is rebuilt and new valvebody have also arrived, tranny guy promice to replace valvebody at the end of next week. So lets see will it fix the 2nd gear start if I replace complete tranny.

2. The front H1 tireas leaking air and I have to balance them, hard vibration at 60mph.
One possible reason can also be Hutckinson runflats, they are still in the rear tires

3. The shock absorbers ,
I have Edellbrock some kind resi shock (I do not remember the correct name) I replace few years ago, but now after 2 years sitting in yard they are not functional at all.

Need to buy some good Bilsteins resis ,where I can adjust valving if needed

Update:

Next weekend will be our county biggest US car show, but I still have some modification to do before it.

The new valvebody have installed to spare tranny (I hope it will fix the 2ng gear start issue.), now I just have to swap the transmissions.

The spare bed will be sandblased underside next week, then undercoating and new paint

Also the bed cap needs new paint.

I had the same thing and I dont know exactly what fixed it because I did three things at the same time, but
1)I replaced the gov solenoid with the BW heavy duty one (on the VB), upped my line pressure by tightening the line pressure bolt 75% of the way (on the VB)
2)adjusted the TV cable, and calibrated my throttle position sensor (or whatever it is called)
3)I made sure all the grounds, especially to the PCM, were in great condition.

Update:
I installed the rebuilt tranny and now 300 miles later I can confirm the 2nd gear start is tranny internal problem.

The rebuilt 48RE with some billet internals, Suncoast 3disc converter and DTT towing 48re valvebody with all new electronics and wiring will do the job quite well.

The H1 wheels/tires will be added to for sale list , together with KORE springs and Edellbrock shocks, it's time to take next step and order some real Thuren springs and rebuildabe shocks with correct valving.

This is how it looks now.

Actually I like how the truck looks now, even the silver bed cap will keep the truck look , not the extended van if it will be black.
