RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Have you given thought to pulling off the carb and installing a smart fuel injection system? Other than welding in the O2 bung, it's usually a simple install and it tunes itself. Improved torque and fuel mileage. Richard Actually, I haven't. That might be something to look at in the future, but not the near future. This does have an 02 sensor on the drivers side, which is not connected to anything, so I don't know exactly why it is there. I would like to hook up to that to check the lean/rich ratio with the carb, to see if I need to make any adjustments once this is back on the road. Here is the low budget entry APSX wideband AFR gauge that I put on my ol Bounder when installed the stroker engine. It has worked well. Richard Thank you so much for the info. I'll look into it, and maybe purchase one. I figure, if the engine is tuned properly, gas mileage will take care of itself.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here is a pic of the camera image on a Windows 10 computer with the BlueStacks program with the Depstech app installed inside of it. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/nostrils.jpg How do you like the look of my nostrils, or is it a dogs snoot? Inquiring minds want to know. Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

The app only runs on Android so you will need an Android emulator for your Win10 machine. I use mine (same brand BTW) on a 10" Android tablet.Much better than the phone. Correct on both counts.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Might as well replace the plug wires while you're at it. What borescope did you end up buying ? I want to pick one up to have in my arsenal of tools . I bought one on Amazon. It's a DEPSTECH Wireless Endoscope. It's wifi enabled, has an adjustable brightness light, works with Android or IOS. 11 feet long and with the app on the phone, I can take either pictures or video. The snake cable is fairly stiff, so whatever position you bend it in, it will pretty much stay in that position. It's nice that it doesn't have to be connected by wire to the phone. I have the same scope and it works quite well. It should work on a laptop as well assuming you can download the app to your computer as well. It creates it's own wifi signal so that's all you need to connect to the computer. Windows doesn't see the camera by default, even though Windows will connect to the wifi of the camera, hence the BlueStacks and Depstech app work around.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I keep hoping someone would come out with one of those WiFi Bore Scopes that would work with my Windows 10 Lap Top, I can see the 17" Screen a lot better than my phone screen. If you are semi computer literate, it can be used with Windows. Windows 10 doesn't see the camera, but there is a work around. I downloaded and installed a program on my computer called Bluestacks. After installing that, I downloaded and installed the Depstech app from Google Play. The Depstech app will work on Android or IOS. What the Bluestacks does, is create an Android environment on Windows, that will install and run Android apps inside of Windows. Bluestacks opens just like any other program on Windows, and then the Depstech app installs inside the Bluestacks program. After connecting to the wifi on the camera with Windows, you will be able to see the images on you computer, real time.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, there is the good news! Everything looks pretty good, as I expected it to.......Overall, I am happy with how things look. Look pretty decent, just a little light surface rust in a couple of the pictures. As for the fuel injection, that would improve the performance and probably fuel mileage as well. Holley makes a nice 4 injector system (assuming that you have a 4 barrel carb) that self-tunes. Comes with some pre-built programs for best mileage, towing power, max horsepower, etc. You start with one of those and it will modify itself over time to best fit your engine and vehicle. Comes with ECM and complete harness as well as software that you can load on a laptop to make manual changes to the ECM programming if you so desire. A bit pricey, so you would need to keep your MH for quite a while and do a lot of traveling to get any payback. On the other hand, if you had to replace a carb anyway, the incremental cost for the upgrade could be recouped much quicker. I may look into that after it is back on the road. The biggest problem with using a carb is people not tuning them correctly. This has a spread bore quadrajet carb on it, and I never, repeat, never, use anything other than the primaries. I also don't run this over 3,000 rpm, ever. While they are a pain to tune, once tuned, they work very well. The primaries are about 1 and 1/4" diameter or so, and the secondaries about 2 and 1/4" or so. What I found was, opening the secondaries put a lot of heat into the engine with very little extra pulling power up the hills, and used a lot of gas. It was a waste of gas and heat. Most of the time, I averaged 8 - 10 mpg with the generator running the overhead air. The dash air didn't work when we bought it, and I never fixed it. I was more interested in keeping the whole coach cool, rather than the driving area. I will make a note of this for future reference. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

The cable appears to be long enough and the camera resolution sufficient, do you think the cable is flexible enough to follow the channel without binding if one wanted to do a self colonoscopy? Perhaps even an upper endoscopy later? You're kidding, right? If you do try this, remember to do the upper first, before you do the lower. Hope he was kidding, but not a good idea with this endoscope.

Perhaps even an upper endoscopy later? The page is in Spanish.....do they not have an English site? I did notice they wanted US dollars. I can only assume you are at least half joking, but in the case that you are not, I'll answer your question. No, this is not flexible enough to traverse the inwards parts of the lower areas of the human body. As stiff as this is, you will very quickly puncture items, that should not be punctured, and would cause you immediate and serious grief! It will however, keep a fairly straight line, or, if inserted into a fairly stiff object that is curved, such as a pipe, it will follow the curve of the pipe, as long as the pipe does not have an extreme bend in it. Here is the website depstech.com and the link to the manual for this particular endoscope. pdf version in several languages.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, what's the bad news, you ask? Well, it's not terrible, it's just...... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/brokenplug.jpg Yup, broke off 2 plugs. 1 of them when taking it out, and the other putting it back in. I was not it a good position under there, and accidentally applied too much sideways pressure, and SNAP! Not that big of a deal. I wanted to change spark plugs anyway. Lol. So, there's your fix for tonight, folks. Calling for snow, sleet, freezing rain tomorrow. Yay. Ugh!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, there is the good news! Everything looks pretty good, as I expected it to. My intake system, consists of the carb on top of the engine, covered with an air cleaner and air filter, with a plastic hose running to the front of the moho, and pointed somewhat downward just behind the grill up front. Yes, moisture can get in there, but it's got to travel uphill, through the hose, through the air filter, and then down through the closed throttle plates, and into the engine. Overall, I am happy with how things look.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, I've got good news tonight and some bad news. I removed the right front wheel today, so I could get to the spark plugs on the passenger side. I pulled the plugs out today, and stuck the camera in each of the 4 holes, and took a few pictures. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cylinder1.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cylinder2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I switched to MacOS for my daily computing. Still have a Windows 10 (1903) that runs a Postgres/Perl application to track the points standings for our drag racing organization. M$FT keeps trying to upgrade it to 1909, which is reported to be trash. Still have a Windows 7 Pro that runs the wife's AutoCad programs and a Windows 95 machine that runs the application for her fancy sewing machine. The Win95 and Win7 machines don't get connected to the Internet anymore, just the house network. At work, before I retired, everything was AIX or Linux Red Hat. Have never been happy with M$FT and their supposed fixes. Feel sorry for most people who have Windows as their only choice. Windows is a choice for most people because of the learning curve involved with switching to a Mac or Linux. Granted, M$ is probably the least stable of most of the systems out there, but, if you're in the repair business, M$ is good for business. Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

The laptop that I am currently using came factory with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS. That was my reason for purchasing it. Much later Windows came out with Windows 10 and began harassing me to do a free upgrade to Windows 10. I kept rejecting the offer for most of a year and one day I came home to find it had upgraded to Windows 10 Professional OS without my permission. AND IT HAD CRASHED. I took it to a tech and he was able to restore it to operational but much was lost or destroyed beyond recovery. Over the years since, I have continued to improve it with regularly updates until it is ok now....It still has Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS but with Windows 10 upgrade. The vast majority of times, updates go well for the vast majority of users. On occasion, things go sideways, and it can be real interesting dealing with the aftermath. During 20 years of dealing with everything from minor annoyances to major dead computers, there have only been a handful of times where we could not recover the data for the user. Stuff like their pictures, documents, etc. most times were recovered, although sometimes after recovering the data, we had to reformat the hard drive and start over, reloading the operating system on a newly cleaned up hard drive, then copy their data back onto the fresh installation of Windows. That gave the greatest benefits, but was the most painful for the user, as all their programs had to be reloaded. So, it was kind of like getting the computer new again. Fortunately, it was a small amount of users that experienced that.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

You don't have to look at all 8 cylinders. Odds are that you will get a good idea of the condition from looking at the 4 on the passenger's side. At least one of those cylinders will have the intake or exhaust valve open. Gee, I wonder who originated the idea of doing fixes that break as much, or more, stuff than they fix. The RV manufacturers or Micro$oft? Years ago, M1cro$oft had come out with a service pack for Windows Xp, and it broke a bunch of machines. Not all, but some. Created the Blue Screen of Death on reboot. I was talking to a customer of mine, and told her about the situation. Her reply was, it sounds more like a dis-service pack, than a service pack. Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

On the drivers side, I was greeted with this view... Uh... yea, not quite the same. The arrow points to the valve cover that I can see, and I probably can get to 1, maybe 2, plugs that will be visible. The other 2, I will probably working about 1/2 blind. Bummer. Hopefully, that will be better than pulling the tools out and then pulling the dog box out. We'll see. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/leftfrontvalvecover.jpg At that point, I came inside for supper, and received a panicked phone call from a customer, with a major Windows problem, and that took care of the rest of the night.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

After cutting out the plywood, I was greeted with this view. I didn't realize what the pic looked like until I had gotten inside. This is on the passenger side, and the red arrow points to the valve cover. Once the wheel and tire are pulled, I can get to the spark plugs to check the cylinders. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rightfrontvalvecover.jpg
