The new fuel pump is ready to be installed, I duplicated the optional factory rubber mounting system for quieter operation. The clearance is really close on the mounting bracket, so some filing is necessary, Regards, Bob

I finished up the install of the new rear transmission cross member as well as installing 4 new Exide batteries, now that the engine start battery is up front, that allowed me to have all 3 batteries in the box for the house batteries. Iím sure that will make it possible for using more stuff while dry camping. Regards, BobClick image for larger version

I finished the new wiring harness on the left side for the new fuel pump and the cooling fan on the auxiliary engine oil cooler. Click image for larger version

Like I canít leave well enough alone....I found the perfect 4000 watt inverter that will fit into the compartment next to the batteries.....Iíll have to pull down the new kitchen wall to install an inverter only outlet and the remote switch panel to turn it on and off. Since I now have 3 group 31 batteries now Iíll be able to set the coffee maker up at night and have my coffee in the morning. Some state campgrounds donít allow generator usage before 8 AM and I am up at 6. My Coleman drip coffee maker is my back up but it wonít keep the coffee hot after itís brewed.....Regards, Bob

I love how coffee is your justification for this part of your project. Bob is a man with his priorities in order. I have a 3k watt inverter going in for the same reason☕️.

Iím intrigued about your 2-speed rear diff...how involved is this modification?

Simple on the 370LE, because of the Spicer housing that Gillig used, its a bolt in job. The hardest part is to re-build the hubs so that they mate with the spindles on the new housing......basically a bearing and race swap so that I can still use the 6 hole polished Alcoa Rims, Regards, Bob

That raises an interesting question: is there a dual speed axle that
will fit my 345 with the standard 454 engine? It would be great
if there were a bolt in gear set for the Dana axle. Does such a
thing exist?

You probably have the same Dana 80 that I have in my 89 325LE. I believe that there were 2 speed tears made for them but I am sure that they are all gone. You might find one in a country bone yard but sure to be used and abused. I lucked out because the Gillis chassis is completely different from the Chevy P32 chassis. What git me thinking about it is that the newer dodge heavy duty pick-up trucks use a Dana 110 rear end housing which is square not round. Regards, Bob
