"Please post compression readings per cylinder wide open throttle, 6 compression strokes. Sounds like slipped timing chain. Never "throw parts" at an engine to try and solve a problem. Ask me."

"Placed vice grips lightly over pipe, just tight enough to not slip over clamp ring. Hammered back on carefully after warming up pipe."

Found Fuel Filter

Searched the entire fuel line system for a filter.Hidden between the propane tank and the frame, I find the bugger... finally.Not only do I find the filter, but I find a kink in the steel hose which was apparently caused when someone moved the propane tank to access the filter. This is why this rig was crapping out on the hills. Guaranteed.Wonder how long the last owners put up with that??…See More

"Did not mention tight clutch pack clearances (0.35) with no wave plates are the ticket in a motor home. Shifts are strong and quick with no bump, slam or hesitation."

"Easy" Loose Pipe Repair

Had a bit of a leak that started this morning. Could hear the water pump doing short cycles about once an hour.
