I believe Fred moved recently. The last update on the site was about two weeks ago that I noticed. I went and looked at the one listed on top on his site.

I didn't sell out. I'm still here. Sorry about the site getting out of date. I switched jobs and companies in January and relocated from Mississippi to West Virginia. My PC was boxed up for 4 months. It took us much longer to find a house than we thought and then closing took almost two months. We bought a (really) fixer-upper and my DW wants me to fix things at the house BEFORE I update the site. She's tough! I have been saving some pictures to my work PC for loading later (like the 345 hearse).

I have TONS of webspace and I am not even close to my bandwidth limit. That's why I started adding trailers.

I did sell my 345 for financial reasons. The thing needed too much money to fix up to respectability. I'll have another just has to be the 'princess model' to meet my wife's standards!

Repowering with Diesel in Airstream MH

I would be interested to know what diesel engines have been used to re-power 310, 345, etc that had 454's, and how the repowering worked out. Is the Isuzu 6db1T a "slide in" in place of a 454 (with the exception of the fuel return lines)?

Fred-thanks a lot for your help--still looking for a 310 diesel east-west.

'92 30' has 454 FI w/ 4L80E OD per papers, although the gearbox feels heavier duty than the 4L80E in the Suburban. Maybe its a 4L85E, but it isn't marked.

'88 454 Suburbans are FI.

Turbos on diesels are BAE aftermarket. They used to put them on BMWs for me at their factory in Compton or Southgate somewhere back in the mid-80s.

Seems to me about 1/2 of the diesels are non-turbo.
