Well it is official, I am an old fart. Since I purchased our motorhome 7 yrs ago at the ripe old age of 64 I have come to the conclusion that I am showing my age. Not just in the looks department but…Continue

Fuel Injection

Hi folks, I gotta tell ya that the best thing that I did for my 1976 Dodge MH was to install Fuel injection. It cost me about $1,000. And it was super easy. My mileage increased about 1 1/2 miles per…Continue

Golden Years My Arse

Well it is official, I am an old fart. Since I purchased our motorhome 7 yrs ago at the ripe old age of 64 I have come to the conclusion that I am showing my age. Not just in the looks department but in the ability to do the things that I used to do. It gets tougher to get down on my knees to work on something and then get back up. When we first started rving the wife and I could do 8 hours of driving (wife does not drive) with no problem. Now we must limit our driving to about 4 hrs. Mostly…See More

Fuel Injection

Hi folks, I gotta tell ya that the best thing that I did for my 1976 Dodge MH was to install Fuel injection. It cost me about $1,000. And it was super easy. My mileage increased about 1 1/2 miles per gallon and even power at all altitudes. I also replaced my poorly designed Mopar ignition system with a HEI dist (like Chevy). I tried to get a good spare ignition module and went through 9 and could not find on that would start my rig. Found out that the people in China could not read blue prints…See More

Hi Jack,

Many thanks for the tip, I'll give it a whirl and see how we go. I've been under there today cleaning all the crud off and trying to get an I.D on the axle but without success. 

I put some card under last night and there's not been any drips overnight. Hope It's not all gone !!

Jack, you wrote:
"Sorry Don, but that type of video is not my cup of tea. Eye strain and a head ache. I prefer real time videos that do not jump around.Just my two cents worth."

Please do not apologize Sir, obviously, you are in enough pain to reach out to a perfect stranger for help. While I am not a doctor or a psychiatrist I have done a lttle research into the nature of your complaint. The video in question has been seen by millions of people over the past five years and you are the only known case to have a complaint so you have good cause to be concerned. The first thing that comes to mind is you should have your eyes checked for the cause of eye strain. If your eyes check out good then you would need to see a psychiatrist for the cause of the head aches. I am told it may be a case of clinical depression coupled with an inability to sit quietly in a room, alone. I hope this is some help to you Jack.
