RE: Origin of power stroke engine

The D and DX blocks were made by Oldsmobile. They are same size and dimension as an Olds gas small block. They definitly had there issues as a diesel. But convert them to gas with Olds gas block parts ( heads intake etc) they will run well. They D and DX blocks are very popular with the high performance Oldsmobile crowd because the blocks are very strong. Can easily handel 1200+ HP.

RE: Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

Wow people thanks for the replies. Keep them coming. I now have some ideas and direction. My E-150 is set up with tow package, air bags,10,000# hitch,WDH,bilsteins all around and a brake controller. I have used it for years to tow a car trailer. I know I'm limited to max 26'-28'. Just don't know if many of the NW manufacturers units will make it to the east coast. A quick Craigslist search didn't turn up much. But shopping for the unit is half the fun right? Lol Thanks again JKaz

Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

DW and I are looking at selling our MH and getting a TT. Would have to be max in the 6000-7000 lbs range do to the fact we have a Ford E150 already set up for towing. My question is what manufacturers have the best quality? We would be looking at used. Do any have one piece front and rear caps? Instead of plastic angle holding corners together. Anyone with fiberglass or aluminum roofs? Or are they all rubber. Its just the wife and I does anyone have kingsize bed? I know layouts important but I'm trying to get a direction as to which brands I should steer towards. Any brands to steer away from? And why? Were not in any hurry just want to find the right TT. Thanks JKaz

RE: RV Caulk Reccomendations

I used the 3m 4000 for every side seam, marker light, trim and door on the outside of my MH. I like the fact its a caulk and an adhesive all in one. Most import is its UV protection. Been 4+ years and still holding up great. Its was designed for marine use bedding cleats and such. I used eternabond on my roof seems. No brainer do it once and be done with it. I also used eternabond double sided for my windows. Removed each window cleaned and applied eternabond double sided. Same 4+ years and no leaks. I only wanted to do these fixes once. Couldn't understand using something that has to be redone or touched up every few years. Good luck with tour project.

RE: The Big Green Egg

For cold weather smoking I use a welding blanket on my smoker to help hold heat. Harbor freight has them cheap $25-30. JKaz

RE: Beware of older motorhomes with low mileage!

Car-part.com put in your info. Plenty of them out there. That body style started in 1992 and OBD-1 was until 1996ish so use those years. I did a quick search and came up with several in Flo. JKaz

RE: How much should a pre-sale independent inspection cost?

I had one done about 4 years ago and it cost me $350. Money well spent is kept me from buying a headache. I used a Motorhome and RV collision center for the inspection. JKaz

RE: Anything stolen from locked compartments.

I replaced all my locks with thumb can locks. Nothing worth stealing except maybe an old tool box. Hated when I was camping and needed something out of one of the bays, had to find keys to unlock them. Couldn't leave them unlocked because the would flop open. So I just got rid of them. Would rather a thief take what the want then damage the door to the bay. JKaz

RE: Pulsating Brake pedal. HELP!

I have had new rotors be warped out of the box.Did a broke job on my van could feel the warped rotor when braking. Jacked up each wheel and spun tire slowly and could here the rotor scrape the brake pad every so often. Change only the one warped rotor and all was good.

RE: Good window sealant

I used double sided eterna bond tape. Pulled each window clean, tape and install. Took a few hours to do all. Did that 4 years ago and no leaks. I also like 3M 4000 UV for a caulk, adhesive and a sealant on anything else on the outside of an RV except windows.

RE: E350 ignition coils

i used to maintain a fleet of E350. I would get 500,000-600,000 miles out of them. Ford had problem with their COPs from 98-2004 I would change them all and be done with it. Changing plugs is not the horror story these guys a portraying. I never sprayed any lube done the hole. Never a problem. I would use compressed air to blow out the hole after the coil is removed. You would be surprised what dust and dirt comes out that you do not want to fall down into cylinder when plug is removed. Also magnetic spark plug socket that comes attached to a long extension is your best friend for doing plugs. Can be had at auto zone for $12 JKaz
