Got a new and improved blog as they say....

This one's been active since we got the LH2 (an Allegro '87 class A) and I've been working the bugs out of her. Fun, excitement, travel, drama it's all there.

Take a look and laugh and cry at the stuff we go through.

Have a good one and all the best to you....

Hey Chester, thanks for the chat this am over coffee! Anything that generates a auto parts shopping list is okay with me! Need a new chainsaw, too but that's another story....

Just cranks fine (until battery is dead) but no spark, so it's rooted in the distributor/coil area. The parts aren't bad it's just a shame that after only a year and 900 miles (okay a good deal of idling to keep the girl in shape during winter) those parts are going.

I'm going to try and new cap and see if that clears it up. I'm not looking forward to a pickup coil, that involves partial disassembly of the unit. I checked the ignition switch, it's working as it should.

Does it seem like it wants to start when releasing key?

It's nice to see someone else who knows what a B-29 is. Yes, I like the older stuff.
I appreciate your comments. I am at the beginning stages of this journey. I think my first order of business is finding a place to do the work. I live in an apartment, so no garage to work from. I do have some ideas - might have to wait until spring to really start digging in.
