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.

We may be calling on you for resources.

Thank you.  Yes, GORV's seems like a great place to be.  I am looking forward to getting on the road and hopefully meeting other like-minded people.

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.  

Thanks again, Patty

Thanks Russ.

I do have a question. Do you or anyone you know, have any knowledge of the Robin Hood Cadet travel trailers? I have a 1962 Robin Hood. And not find a whisper about them. Please help!

There is scant info on the net.

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.
