RE: Ford V10 no starting power

There is a wiring schematic for the BCC on the inside of the cover. Trace back the unpowered section with a volt meter until you find where the voltage is. Richard

RE: Space behind couch-too much

Where did you get the trim. Mine is shot too, and burgundy looks great. My trim was shot too. I found wood grain trim at Walt's RV. The vinyl was shrinking and pulling loose. I replaced it with high quality shelf liner, also wood grain. Rather than mess with the original shelf material, I made new shelves from 1x4 pine. Richard 95 Bounder

RE: Chevy Workhorse parking brake electrical system

Read this web site. It's the best place to find info on P32 chassis like yours. It has a whole section on your "autopark" brake problem. Richard

RE: Space behind couch-too much

Jim has it right. My 95 Bounder had a shelf mounted 2" below the window. I moved the shelf up tight against the window frame and was able to move the couch back 2" closer to the wall and it still missed the wall when made into a bed. Made a big difference in my 8' coach with no slides. Richard

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

This whole thread only reinforces why I keep polishing my 95 Bounder. Richard

RE: Spout

It's located on the outside of the fire wall in front of the drivers feet. Look for a aluminum heat sink with the ignition module on it. The spout plug will be hanging just below the ignition module. It may be partly obscured by the radiator over flow tank. The spout connector is the easy part. Seeing the timing marks is a challenge. Richard 95 Bounder F53

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

Thank you very much for posting your project. Now I know my engine will come out the front when I do my engine swap this year. Safe and happy travels Richard Dang Richard, now I realize I didn't take any photos of how I arranged the engine lift. To summarize, I removed the intake manifold and bolted a tight chain from one head to the other across the middle. I didn't use the hook on the beam but rather attached the chain directly to the beam where the hook would normally be. That way I gave it as much lift clearance as possible and could still tilt the engine front and rear to clear the lower front frame member with the oil pan. But yep, it'll come out the front. Also tried to put the RV at a height where the crane beam was as level as possible when the engine was lifted as high as it would go. PM me if what I've written here isn't clear. Steve PS Now that I'm done I don't envy the task you have in front of you. Thanks Steve, In one of your pictures I could see the crane beam was very close to the valley and you used a second chain for the front of the engine. So yes, I picked up on what you did. Clever. Being an old gear head, I don't fear the up coming event. I have my concrete RV pad next to my garage and will be under no time constraints. The cherry picker, engine stand and transmission jack are in the garage waiting. Just got a call from my engine builder and my 8.6L BBF short block will be shipping on 6/23/15. Safe travels Richard

RE: Question for you plumbers

You are absolutely correct! NEVER use Teflon tape on plastic/nylon NPT fittings. The tape will cause the fittings to distort when screwed together. I know there are those using Teflon tape where they shouldn't with success but that don't make it right. Even the RV manufactures use Teflon tape on pipe threads but it's not good practice. If you poll the plastic/nylon pipe manufactures, they'll support my comments. Richard

RE: motorhome width

First Fleetwood 102" gas coach was the 95 Bounder 35U. All Fleetwood gas coaches were 102" in 96. Several brands were 102" before Fleetwood. Richard

RE: Looking for modern antifreeze recommendations

I use nothing but standard ethylene glycol and distilled water in my 95 F53 460. Change it ever 3 years. When I pull the block drain plugs, there is no muck in the block. Water pump lasted 90,000 miles. It probably makes no difference what you use as long as you do the proper maintenance. I'm sure the diesel guys will tell you all their needs but your ol 460 is a lot more forgiving. Richard

RE: Axle shafts

The only thing said about propane was that the tank on it needed to be re-certified, so they had just been using bbq tanks. So, I am assuming not. Was that just curiosity as some are dual, or was it because of the pic? The picture shows the dual fuel propane parts in both lower corners. That was an add-on. Richard

RE: New Owner With A Couple Of Questions

I believe that coach has Atwood windows. If so, the drains at the outside bottom of the windows have been known to make a high pitch wine from the air flow at speed. Atwood offered plugs to cure the problem. You could tape the drains and see if the noise goes away. Some food for thought. That 97 Ford chassis came with 235/85R16 Michelin all steel cord tires. The all steel cord contributes to the handling of that chassis. Less side wall flex. Only Michelin XPS and Bridgestone Duravis R250 tires offer all steel cord construction in your size. Both are pricey. Michelin XPS in you size are $255.00 each at Walmart. I elect to use Michelin XPS tires on my 95 Ford chassis. Richard

RE: 1989 Southwind Electric

Your generator has 2 circuit breakers. 30 amp for the main panel and a 20 amp for the second A/C. The 20 amp breaker feeds the unselected A/C through the selector switch. Some of us with that system have interrupted the 20 amp service at the generator so we can run the second A/C with a extension cord. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/qOitz5JVjaMShwOeLYLyXSKli0EvicQRgvrX-4fxuvo=w276-h207-p-no height=400 width=600https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/kCNBBKK8zUQc3Ab40Es7nZEuOeQ-0iC3LcbhVHMkGrc=w156-h207-p-no height=400 width=600 Richard

RE: Axle shafts

Did the "old owner" tell you that the engine is dual fuel? Set up to run on propane of gas. Richard

RE: Park Model Questions

Check the TX. park model tax codes. There is a over 400 sq. ft. tax of some sort. Richard

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

Steve, I just remembered something about headers on a 460 F53. With any installation of header on a 460 F53, the shift cable and the emergency brake cable need to be insulated or a heat shield installed where the cables run close to the DS header. That is clearly addressed with Banks headers and needs to be addressed on you installation. I have a friend with a 97 F53 that has had the shifter cable replaced twice before he realized the necessity of protecting those two cables from after market header heat. The replacement shift cable is over $400. Richard Banks Power Pack

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

Richard, we hit the road full time July 24. First stop is mammoth cave in Kentucky first week of August, son #3 has a bot scout campout there. If timing works out, I'd enjoy heading to MO and helping you play with your tools. Well lets see what the future brings. Rattle my cage when you get to scout camp. On my honor I will do my best to due my duty, etc. I will warn you that I'm an only child. :E

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

Actually the 2000 RPM 20 minute break in has to do with oil splash on the cam lobes and not the cam bearings. The cam bearings are pressure oiled. Richard X 2 And it only applies to flat tappet cams. As by the '90's nearly all engines (hopefully yours!) had roller cams by then. Cam breakin in a non-issue with a roller cam. The ol 460 just barely got out of the stone ages with its port fuel injection introduction in 1988. No roller cam or OBD II for any 460s. BUT! Ford managed to meet EPA requirements on F53s with out a catalytic converter for the last 4 years of production. 1994-1997. Richard
