Pat,

Good to hear from you again, my friend ! I've thought of replacing the line, but there are 2 seemingly insurmountable problems. First, it's attached to the outermost sliding piece of the telescopic antenna "ears", so I'd have to figure a way to detach what's still up in there and then reattach a new piece. Then there's the problem of getting it on the spools (one for each "ear"). The spools are press-fitted with a cover, so I'd have to cut them apart to get to the inside - looks somewhat like a fishing reel with a cover, but the cover won't come off - if that makes sense. I haven't given up yet. In fact, I may temporarily put the ears back on in the retracted position. I could still rotate the antenna from inside the MoHo. If necessary, I could ladder up to pull out the ears whenever rotation wasn't enough. All the nylon cording does is extend and retract the ears - that's it. If you have anything you think may help me disassemble the reels, I'd certainly appreciate your scanning and sending it by PM.

By the way, still hoping you can tell me where that bracket attaches that holds the radiator hose away from the bottom of the engine .

Thanks again, my friend

Tim, I just remembered something, about ten years ago I was in Canada and it rained for about four days and the the temp. dropped down to 17 above zero. When I wanted to get on the road I could not retact my Delta it was frozen. What I did is drive it home about 500 miles with no problem. Why don't you pull out the ears and just drive it.
What the heck if you damage the Delta who cares, it is not much good anyway.

By the way have you tried to contact the company in Michigan?

Your pal,
Pat370

Pat,

You know, I had actually thought of that, but figured it would look rather foolish. On second thought, I could rotate the rabbit ears so they run front to rear - virtually invisible from the ground! Great idea .

I have contacted Barker Mgf. about the Delta, but their response is they have no parts, nor any source of a whole unit. Dead end... (I still remember their introducing this thing in 1985 at the international Rendezvous of an SOB club. They gave a long introduction on this being the wave of the future. Now they just referred me to Wineguard .) So much for manufacturer's backing their products.

Thanks for that idea. I think I'll temporarily, at least, reassemble the unit with the rabbit ears out. By the way, my antenna works quite well. I'm not sure why, but it does a good job.

Best,

Has anyone had any experience with these antennas? Also, I don't have an exploded view of how the retractors work, only the installation instructions with a very limited parts list - which is not clear nor labeled. Thanks for any assistance.

I have one I'm throwing away, do you want it?

Mike & Bob,
I'm sure that Tim appreciates your kind offers although his need has long since passed. His posts were from 2006. He later sold his beautiful 370 to my cousin. My cousin & I drove it from Virginia to it's new home in Texas. Sadly, it burned up completely due to a fuel leak a few years ago. My cousin bought Tim's 370 because he enjoyed my 345 so much, which I still have.
I just put all new fuel lines on it, again...

John - what's the rough process/parts list for new fuel lines? I think I want to get that sorted this year on my 250 classic.

Thanks
Nick
