RE: Kwikee series 32 step replacement Motor & Gearbox

Yes, unfortunately I am unable to read the sticker, and the numbers cast into them don't seem to match any. I think i found one that will work. Will they stop trying to retrack when it gets seated even if there more pull from the motor? If I'm reading you correctly, the motor keeps running, going thump thump, when the steps reach the end of travel. That would be the 3 cushings in the motor gear box, that have collapsed.

RE: Who has removed bell cranks?

Those OEM bushed bell cranks were a piece of junk from the start. Bushings need a little clearance to perform properly. The bearing bell cranks from Henderson have no clearance (play). There is a lot of pressure on those bell cranks to change the steering motion 90°, thus slop in the steering wheel. You did a good thing spending a few $$ with Henderson. Richard

RE: coleman air boat anchor or not

Repair is possible but not economical. Compressors are available and changeable and fittings can be installed to evacuate and recharge. Also a filter dryer should be installed. I am licensed and would accept the challenge if it was my AC. I find it amazing that the 2 ACs on my 95 Bounder are original and functional. Richard

RE: Let's talk Dana 80 axle temps

It is not just full floating rearends that use the differential oil for the bearings. Semi floaters do as well. In fact I have never heard of a conventional rearend that uses grease for them...FWIW, I have totally rebuilt axles incuding setting up new Ring and Pinion gears. Now your showing your age.........About 1964 the auto/light truck manufactures switched to axle bearings that lubed with def. grease. Before that the press on axle bearings has grease in them with seals on both sides. MOPAR used tapered axle bearings pack with grease and seals on both sides of the bearings. The right side axle bearing had an adjustment to set the end play. Richard

RE: 1967 Travco 270 440 to Cummins 8.3 Upgrade

I believe the 8.1 Chevy engine would be the best option. It would be a lot quitter under the dog house. It should have plenty of "get up and go" for your application. As far as I know, all the 8.1s are EFI and would require the electronics from a downer. Richard

RE: Deisel handling

Most Gas MH's are built on the F53 chassis which is used on everything from motorhomes to bread trucks. It's a utilitarian chassis and thus not a lot of engineering around comfort and quiet. Diesel MH's are fairly specific to the task and engineered with driving controls and comfort with things like airbags. On a gas MH you are sitting on top of the engine and endure all the noise and heat that it brings. Diesels are rear engine and so much more quiet and balanced. There are reasons DP's cost more and most of those reasons are the chassis, engine and engine placement. They are also typically built a little better with higher end components and insulation. All of which add to the experience. But everything in RV'ing is a compromise. You have to decide if the extra cost is worth it. Most folks who end up with a DP, never look back. The F53 chassis is NOT used for every thing including bread trucks. The F53 is manufactured by Detroit Chassis and is designed and engineered for motor home use. The utility chassis is a F59. One example of designed and engineered for MH use is the fuel pump assembly. It has a third port for the generator. Richard

RE: 2014 Ford V-10 Dropped plastic cap down oil fill tube

It all depends if it is the transmission or the engine oil filler tubes. If it is the transmission filler tube, take the oil pan off that will drain the oil, it will be messy and if the cap is not with tne oil, tnen take the dip sgick and push the cap down, the dip stick extens below the rim of the transmission, If it is the engine oil filler neck tube, with a good flash light try see if you can locate it and get it out. It Will not go down to the oil pan DO NOT RUN THE ENGINE the cap will stay on the valve gallery and can really do a lot of damage. Should the cap brake into small pieces by running the engine, severe damage will be done to many components by the plastic debry pluging oil pasages and oil galleries , if the cap can not be retrieved, then the valve cover needs to be removed there is no other way. navegator How would that debris get past the oil filter to get into the oil passages and galleries? Obviously you have no concept how the engine oiling system works. Richard

RE: 2014 Ford V-10 Dropped plastic cap down oil fill tube

Chanced are the crank shaft will beat up the plastic cap, The oil pump will pick it up, grind it up some more and feed it to the oil filter, for the end of its trip. It will never get into the lubrication passages. Richard

RE: Replacement Awning Fabric

Your junk awning is vinyl. Replace it with acrylic. Acrylic has a woven appearance. The acrylic awnings on my MH are 25 years old and still going strong. My awnings are from Carefree. Yes acrylic costs more in the beginning but will pay back in the long run. Richard

RE: Gas 11 years ago from a Forum memeber

I love the question the first paragraph. I probably should not comment any farther. GRIN I just filled the front tank in my 1990 F150........Only paid $4.36 a gallon, for 17 gallons....Makes me cringe thinking about filling the MH...... Oh well, that's why we worked so hard and save in our younger years. Richard

RE: Floor Wax - ZEP

Chast may have hit upon something. I use a green scotch bright when stripping the old coating off. My 95 Bounder didn't yellow with age............ Richard

RE: Floor Wax - ZEP

I have been using Zep Wet Look for several years. I strip and recoat about every 4 years. It really keeps my ol Bounder looking good. I have not experienced any color issues when striping off Zep Zep wet look is NOT a wax. You have to polish when applying a wax. Zep Wet Look Floor Polish is an acrylic topcoat. No polishing necessary. Richard

RE: 1995 Onan 7K NHM no output.

My NHM had voltage regulator failure several years ago and would stop running when the start button was released. Still bugs me that it stayed running during this failure. Richard

RE: 1995 Onan 7K NHM no output.

TA-DA! I wooped it! GRIN........... Those tarnished slip rings were the problem. But we'll probably never know why the engine kept running when the starter is released and no output. Guess we know why Onan suggests running the generator once a month with with a load. Oh well, if my old Onan only fails once every 27 years, I guess I can live with it. I'm now ready for the power & light company's black outs when the temperature goes over the top. Richard
