My Travco's at 117 and raring to ...Sit under its cover all winter, actually.
But it's had good maintenance, top end work plus a nifty Petronix.
I dislike bending in half going after breaker plates.
An Edlebrock? Next item. Electronic chokes rock.
Vacuum chokes are from Satan /Bill Gates /Whichever.
Stick around, I'm sure you've got lots of expertise and we like picking each others' brains.

I came across this thread and I just needed to say hello. My first RV was a '72 Winnebago Indian with a Dodge 413. I loved that old rig with a passion. I rebuilt, overhauled or replaced every system on that motorhome and knew it like the back of my hand. With its high ground clearance I was able to drive it up jeep roads high up in the mountains. It was built like a tank. We had many memorable trips in it when my kids were young. However, when it went over 100,00 miles its engine started getting "tired" and it couldn't pass emissions. We were faced with putting in a new engine or putting the money into a new rig. We happened upon the HR that you see below and decided it was time for something larger. We love the new rig. It is bigger and much more comfortable for my wife and I, but we aren't able to take it to some of the great places that we used to go to. I wish we could have them both!
(Mr. Denison, you may remember me from "Classic Winnebagos". I'm the guy who sold you the Holley. I put an Edelbrock in instead which worked out better for me.)
Good for her, my cousin and I were going to do that after graduation back a hundred years ago... then he moved to Alaska and I didn't see him for years,,,, we never did take that trip, wish we had. I have since made a few trips cross country in a van,,,, full of kids,,,, once with my mother-in-law...... some how it wasn't how my cousin and I invisioned it......
I don't think anyones dying statement ever contained the words "I wish I had spent more time in the office", so lets go somewhere!

Some how it wasn't how my cousin and I envisioned it.
And this is why I'm all for her to do it now, while she can.
No ties, no responsibilities, just Marge & her iPhone!
(and tools, a good jack, breaker bar, 2 good spares, serpentine belt, spare alternator, 2 sets plugs & 1 set wires, 2 coil packs, a torque wrench (I have two), oil, ps, brake fluid, a shop manual, funnels. I know she's forgetting something...)
