Hey Daniel, if you have any more questions that I can help you with, I will be glad to answer them. I am not saying I know everything, But I still turn wrenches. I have for 29 years now. As for the fuel pump, it is one of the ways to fill the carburetor after sitting. But that is not the problem. The problem is that the bowl is leaking down when the engine is off. I would almost bet that you smell raw fuel after you turn off the engine. Within 1 hour you probably leak out a teaspoon of fuel into the intake. If this is the case, you should either have the carb rebuilt and/or replace it. I know that it is easier to replace and cheaper to rebuild. But when you buy from O'rieys you do get a warranty. I myself like to rebuild, so I know what is put into it.   Hope you find the problem.    Mike

Hi Dan,  The conversion tire size is LT225/75R16, LT is Light Truck, P is passenger, P cannot handle the wieght. If you are buying used rims make sure they fit as the size of the center hole has changed, also rims from other makes ie Ford could fit too, always trial fit them dont take anyones "yeh Im shur they will fit". Also you could go to a 19.5 rim and low profile tire but the cost would be muck higher. Just remember the height of the tire on rim must be the same as your current 16.5 to keep everything equal ( gearing & speedo). If Im going to redo my Winn again I to have to change rims to 16 also. I hope this helps if you have any other questions feel free to ask.   chat soon   Rick

PS really nice looking unit

Hey Daniel. Thanks for the reply. Being in the southern U.S. No AC would be a killer. I don't think I have seen a coach like yours. I'll say again.Sure looks nice.

Rick and Daniel, would appreciate your posting what you find out in our Forum on this tire size issue so we can learn from it. Lots of others have come across the same problem and I sure don't know the proper answer.  Thanks!

Good morning Daniel. Nice coach. Looks show room new. I don't see an AC unit. Just a little tip. Stay away from web site , Antique Motor Homes. It will flood you with porn spam. I have a 1985 Sports coach III. Have had 2 other coaches. These older coaches sure built better than most of the new ones.

Hi Dan, If you get me your current tire size I will check with my son for the proper size conversion, he is a custom tire and wheel guy at a shop in Bracebridge Ont.   Rick

Hmmm, we have not done the. Let's see, smaller diameter rims/tires will certainly fit within wheel wells with no problems and tires will be readily available. Smaller diameter will spin faster so gear rations and speedometer will be affected I think. Perhaps less power from "taller" gearing?

What do you think folks?

Where do you plan on going in FL.  I live in the pan handle just outside Panama City.  I like your camper.  very nice.  We have 2 vintage.  Pics are on my page.  We are attending the Tin Can Tourist rally in Cedar Keys next week.  I also love your light.  Did you make it and do you have instructions?  Maybe we might see each other in the future.  We have a good friend into vintage that is about your age.  He heads up the TCT in our area.  He is our guru of vintage campers.
