Happy New Year all
Have a 72 Travco with the 413 engine and trans ebrake . I had the ebrake shoes relined at a clutch shop , they used material usually used in elevators . Now looking for a new cable and the ebrake handle top , i just have the threaded part , not easy to pull fitting on top . Next on the list is i tried to remove a wiper motor and broke the part of the fitting above wherre the wiper seats . On the wiper clutch part . I had thought it was bad , since i replaced the switch and checked grounds with no avail . Was quite annoyed when after removal , i did the last we'll see thing and ground it next to the car battery and added power , only to see it work . So is welding or similar pos . Sorry about the long post . Any help will be appreciated . Jody K Travco 72 -- 270 - 375 chassis
Here are a couple sites for wiper parts
They only make a press on arm that goes on the motor directly so I ended up purchasing new motors.
I now have a complete new wiper system. If you go this route call me because there were some issues I had with what position you install the motors.
Thanks for the lengthy reply . I don't need many parts , but having spares in the garage or under a tarp might be a tempting thing . At the least I'm going to check out some truck junk yards . Mine starts right up , just needs some attention for safety . Like adjusting the steering box . Have a great day , and if ever in the area feel free to look me up . Jody K ( oh , clinton ct )
The chassis your motorhome is on is not a standard commercial truck Dodge chassis, the cahssis your motorhome is mounted on was specially built only for motorhomes the various models range from M-300,M-375,RM-300,RM350, and RM-400 yours I would guess is mounted on a RM-400. The class C motorhomes yes they were all mounted on standard B class van chassis so all the parts are available at any auto parts store napa etc, but calss A motorhomes are a different breed, many of the parts are much harder to ubtain at a regular auto parts store. if you intend to keep this coach for years to come you should look for a (salvage motorhome) your motorhome may run great now but two or three years from now somthing may go as small as a wheel bearing or as big as a rear differential. it is very convient to just to have one to pluck parts off when you need them. I have a 1974 class-A with a RM-350 Dodge chassis with a 440-v8, cruse air motorhome,It's a basic no name motorhome but it has a very good layout on the inside. sorry I dont mean to preach to you, I just like to help out my fellow classic motorhome owners and help them to keep these american classics on the road for many years to come. I have experience with these older moterhomes, pryer to the one I own now, I have also had a 1969 winnebago on a M-300 class a chassis, also a 1978 dodge class C motorhome. and had a 1973 dodge van as my daily driver. So any questions you have feel free to call taulk to you later, Doug 516-790-1199
