i would take u up on it.. heads and carb are rebuilt. i cannot even turn crank to try and unhook the trans . it ate #4 cylinder and imploded the piston when the old intake gasket dumped all the antifreeze in the cylinder. cranked it over for comp tests and flushed it with kerosene . took 2 weeks to get the pan out (eventually cut it out) and the kerosene i think seised all the bearings. i need to turn crank 1/8 turn to get the rod in #4 out to even look at the cylinder damage. Replaced the balancer bolt with a milodon and a 4 ft breaker on 3/4 drive stock will not turn it. (it did turn it tighter by 2 revolutions but I stopped at that point in tightening it.
Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm going to spend a happy couple of hours checking out all the great comments and instructions. I'm about to tackle removing all the bathroom fixtures and plumbing ... so I need all the help I can get.
Thank You Russ. This is a new adventure and undertaking for us. We have replaced water damaged boards in our 5th-wheel and are hoping this will go as smooth. Now if I could only find out some kind of information on this particular camper.
Thank you, Russ, for the kind words. I'm really looking forward to getting involved in this site. I'll be full of questions, for sure, and this looks like a great place to find some answers. First, though, I'll look around and see if some of them have already been addressed.
Thank you, Russ. We have until may to finish this project and will definitely be posting our progress. I will get some pictures on here as soon as I can. I have been doing some digging and cant find much on the '74 Brougham Coach. So far I'm figuring her out but I'm sure I will run into some issues soon. Do you know of any resources for these beasts? Restoring inside and out. Also, power steering and wiring issues.
