Post The landing of the Yacht......

Ken leave it to you to have all the fun. I am so glad that you are out there to take some of the heat away from the rest of us. It was told to me along time ago...we are not inventing anything new.......it has all been done by those that we spend that ONE WEEKEND a month with. .....We will all enjoy the story and the look see of the "Yacht" at the Barnyard next month. Oh by the way I have some stuff at work that will work on the spark plug wires..so let me know.


Marty

Ken,

Glad to hear you made it home safe. your trip sounds like you had a chance to learn allot about your coach!

On my 76 the steel heat shields were gone and I had headers. The PO had installed fiberglass insulated sleeves over the boots and wire ends. If you look at this link The stuff comes in 3 foot sections. 2 or 3 should do for the wires and boots if you cut it to fit. I would bet the front 3 on each side are all you really need to do. The other option is to buy a set of high temp is,silicone wires I ran excell wires and the boots still melted. I hear the Jacobs wires are great and will not melt.

Fire

Ken,
glad the fire was an easy fix. This weekend, I passed a NEW diesel bus chassis SOB that was an INFERNO - fire 10' plus high, the inside (back bulkhead melted away) fully inflammed - I've never seen such a sight. The fiberglass was just melting and dripping off the sides. The FD had just pulled up, the freeway closed just after I got by (all I could think of was the propane tanks). I almost stopped, but I saw the highway patrol infront of the unit, and an elderly couple outside - thank God they were ok! The fire seemed to have started in the back (as the front cab was untouched), the pullouts fell to the freeway. I kept wondering what started it (it was under 40 degrees in Seattle at the time). Wonder if it was hot glow plug wires?
Marc

New MH

Ken, some how I knew there would be an adventure in your MH aquistion. Glad to see you came out alright.What do figure,two years untill you,re in a DECKER? At the current turnover you may beat that. Again glad to see you made it home, and can't wait to see your new toy. PJ

Plug protectant

Kid, I actually went to a high performance shop and looked at the material you reference and I will probably end up installing some of that stuff. I had new Heat shields installed and I wanted to see the result of that. I have not pulled cowling yet and inspected but I am certain the extra measure will be warranted.

I have installed new Silicone high temp plug wires but they were the same as the ones that burned up. The ones that had burned up were brand new. I had replaced them prior to departure. The originals had deteriorated prior to purchase.

Waslien,
Speaking of turnover, I bow before thee. It will be tuff to keep up with you. I would bet one paint stick and a fake gold casino coin that you are in a Sky Decker long before I.

Congratulations!!!

Ken;
Eventually you will get all the bugs worked out and the motorhome will be "roadworthy". Loved your shortened version narrative of the trip home! See you at Barnyard next month.

Fred

Detailing

Took the MH to the detailer today to have it compounded, and waxed.

Had to work on a stiff spring on the main awning yesterday.

I need to change all belts and maybe hoses. I have a belt that will not quit Silvertwinkie er........ I mean squeeling.

Phred, Do you have P/Ns for all belts on my unit?
