added pictures of 1977 holiday rambler class c rv we are restoring-79k original miles-460 ford on e350 frame. might add interior pictures later. purchased from mother in law in oregon, 70 years old she drove it by herself to kansas city mo. approx. 2000 miles. next day noticed anti freeze under truck-what i thought was hose, turned out to be bad radiator-only one will fit unit-$ 300 dollars-decided to change water pump and fuel pump while i had room. went to start truck- nothing- turned over, traced problem to dead coil-still would not start-started tracing back fuel lines and replacing rubber-found electic pump unit above rear axle-guess what-its dead- took off filter behind it- full of junk. decided to drop fuel tank as sending unit not working- thought tank empty-wrong- about half full-drained tank- fixed sending unit- am currently considering options to replace tank. my question and amazement-
how the heck did a 70 year old women drive 2000 miles safely cross county in it-she must have had guardian angel. ha!
might add pictures of tag axle tire that dealer in oregon said didnt need replaced. he only put on from and dual axle tires-original 16.5- he put on load range d and should have had e- tire dealer here questioned why it wasnt converted to 16's, cheaper and more common upgrade. she made it to middle of kansas and right rear tire blew, taking out wheel well cover in the process-she walked a mile into a town and found a farmer that had a 16.5 used tire and put it on for her. tough as nails.
would like to see this web site expand to add member recommending companies and web sites for remodeling older units- i am restoring 1981 honda goldwing and several sites have how to repairs and tons of references to parts and suppliers. just and idea. thanks
