RE: 454 Southwind Popping back at carburetor solved-- revised

The GM HEI Distributor was one of the best ever invented! It is simple and easily plug and play. I have used it to retro older points systems. During the same time period Ford had the Brain Box system. A total DOG to troubleshoot! The only way to check the box was to replace it and when they first came out they cost $150.00 !!!

RE: Blown Engine, 8.1l

If your invoice states "New Engine" then it's time to take pics and call one of those TV lawyers!

RE: Atwood 6 gal gas water heater problems?

just a guess, check to see if the flue is blocked. Dirt dobbers will work their magic in there.

RE: P32 MH Engine Dying Abruptly

My first guess is ignition pick up in distributor. Second guess fuel pump relay/circuit. The oil pressure switch could be acting up. See if it is covered with oil/leaking.

RE: adding a transmission temp gauge on P30 chassis

Something else to consider is if you have electric fans in front of the radiator you can hook up a manual switch (with a on light) so you can add extra cooling. The fans are automatic but a switch gives you extra control. The fans have a relay and you can wire into the control side. I used this switch for faster cool down when coming off of the interstate before shutting down. The temperatures can really build in a hot engine that is shut down too soon.

RE: Salesman's battery switch not working

It might not be a solenoid, it might be a "Latch Relay". They look the same but work differently. If latch relay there should be a fuse controlling it. I had the on/off switch stick and burn mine out.

RE: Dash A/C not working- I can't locate source for new hoses

Hoses are replaceable using the original fittings. With many custom installs the hoses are made to fit the application and are not OEM.

RE: Alternator Quit ( I think)

If you can find a GOOD local Starter/Alternator Shop they can check it and repair it for a reasonable cost. Normally a lot less than new replacement. Alternators are fairly simple in operation and repair.

RE: Front Air Bag Replacement - Chevy P30 Chassis

I did my 1989 Southwind with new air bags and it rode like a dream with just 45 psi in the bags!

RE: Front Air Bag Replacement - Chevy P30 Chassis

Doing it your way you should at least use coil spring compressors! How ever anyone does it make sure that you smooth down the sharp edge where the hole was punched in the A-Frame. I have used a die grinder with a stone wheel but a Dremel or even a drill with a stone wheel will work.

RE: pine sap removal from rubber roofs

I use automotive Brake Clean on painted surfaces but it does remove any wax/protection. You could try it in a small area. Brake Clean is very handy for a lot of things, I even use it for grease stains on carpet. you should keep a can in your maintenance kit!

RE: Brake Pad stuck after releasing Air Brake

Rocking is better than just trying to go in one direction. I have had to move hundreds of semi trailers that had been stored for over a year or more. Beating on the drum with brakes released is a bad idea if you don't have the wheels blocked.

RE: Salad Shooter for Grated Cheese

I bought the Pro at a thrift store for $6. I grew a bunch of red beets and I like to slice them before pressure cooking them. The shooter WAS GREAT for the hard beets! Cut them like nothing. I even used the Julian Blade to make them wavy/fancy. They make great FRESH hash browns too with the shredder blade. I also use it for cracker crumbs, grinds them very fine. Quick clean up too, disassembles easily! I found another one at a flea market for $5. and sent it to my sister. At first she was skeptical, now she brags about how many uses she has found for it! I used to see the commercials on TV every Christmas and though what a stupid thing to have but it sure proved me wrong.

RE: Ideas? help? First motorhome , fuel issue, 81 P30 454

Might have water in the gas. Was it sitting before you bought it?

RE: Old Fashion North Carolina Hotdogs

I love a good Chili/cheese Dog! Or a "Cheese Coney" as they are called in Cincinnati where I grew up. If you haven't discovered it yet Walmart Hotdog Chili is very good!! (Great Value Brand) The really good news is IT'S ONLY 50 CENTS A CAN!!! I have bought extra cans and given them to friends. They can buy their own dogs and cheese.

RE: My experience with front air bag installation

One important step I had to do was to grind down the sharp knife-like edge on the hole in the bottom of the A-frame. I used a Die Grinder with a stone bit but a Dremel Tool would work too. I cut the old bags in pieces with a reciprocating saw.

RE: Leaky fuel tank

A good shop that knows what they are doing could braze the holes if the metal around them is sound. I have soldered, brazed and welded may fuel tanks including Semi Tanker Trailers. As long as they know how to clear them it's not that hard.

RE: All Electric Motorhome ?

Since about 50% of the US electric is produced in coal fired plants these "wonderful" electric vehicles are at least 50% Coal Powered! Try explaining that to the over educated. They will argue that the electric comes from the wall socket!

RE: How to test my alternator: SOLUTION

You might have an intermittent problem, worn brushes or electrical component failing. Checking the battery voltage engine off then on would show how it's doing at that moment. A shop would know how to load test it.
