The squirrel cage motor can be rebuilt if you are willing to do the work.... ten bucks for the bearings and two hours labor. The heater core can be repaired although they are still available from the manufacturer.

Please post photos as you proceed with the modification of the bathroom wall. My wife would like me to do the same in our 345, and I'd like to do the job right.

Thanks!

Cockpit window glass is the same for Argosies through the end of the Classics. (74 to early 90s).

You should be good to go

I believe Brad is correct.
FYI, fitting the window requires removal of the famous "Fuzzy Shlegle"(sp?), so it is a good time to replace it unless its in great shape.

Kreimer, I've been absolutely loving following your adventure post by post.

That's basically what I'll soon be going through with the 1981 280 that I just acquired.

I'm curious, where did you buy the driver's side slider window and how much did you pay for it? I need to get one for my new toy as well.

Thanks for sharing your great adventure with all of us!!

I got from someone parting out an excella on eBay. The bedroom slider should be here in a few days as well. Got it for around $250 shipped. Going down tonight to check size. Hopefully it fits! Congrats on the new beast!!!

ID:	255982 I was looking at it trying to figure out how to get the new window in at least temporarily and I noticed the fuzzy track had a split in it and I was able to pull the front top section outClick image for larger version

ID:	255983 the new window was easy to get in after I cleaned the tracks out. Stuffed the top in the spot where the track was missing and gingerly slid the bottom into place. Then I got the whole thing to slide back into placeClick image for larger version

ID:	255985now I have all the windows measures to get seals and fuzzy ordered. Gonna do that tonight. Gotta remember where to order it from. I think it was inland. Have to read back through some posts when I get home. The window slider is on its way as well! That one may be a bit more tricky to install I think...
