Purchased a 1987 Georgie Boy, Lean Machine RV. Totally foreign to me. Has a Ford engine. My dilemma is I don't know size of engine or "kind" of transmission. I can not find needed info online (limited skills online). Anyone out there have a link to down load maybe a build sheet or other info on this RV?? Needing new engine belts and hoses. Can find part numbers.

Call Georgie Boy with the VIN number they might be able to help. You won't get a build sheet, doesn't exist, but they might tell you which chassis you have and engine and trans.
Or take the belts and hoses off and go to a good parts store, not Autozone, and see if they can match them up.

It would be a 1986-1987 Ford F53 with a 460 engine.

I use O'Reilly auto parts website.
Auto zone and Rock auto are good.

Chassis ID tag on the wall near the drivers seat
VIN number, tire sizes, tire pressure, axle weights, gross weight, etcetera

Be sure you tell the parts guy
