Did she count the wheels on your refrigerator? ''One who shall be obeyed'' Be careful...she might have read the book 50 shades of grey.

Good for you Seabas! I think this will turn out to be a worthwhile project for you.
Plus saves me from getting in over my head. Whew that was a close one!

I'm heading to Phoenix today for a couple of days. Let me know if I can be of help while there.

Is the engine shop going to dig into the bottom end of the engine? May be a good idea to drop the pan for a look see.

Glad this coach is staying in the family so we can follow along.

Cheers Richard

Thanks guys, we'll see how it works out after a total motor overhaul. Im really curious how it will drive compared to the P30 based mohos. Probably won't make it to the meet in CO, but how about a west coast meet?

A west coast meet would be great! Would there be any interest in a meet in Northern California around the Redding area?

I'm also curious how they compare. The Spartan is a solid commercial vehicle type of ride. The leaf springs front and rear are a bit harsh but it tracks well and doesn't wander. New Goodyears made a world of difference on the teeth and china rattling.

On the plus side it's been wheeling in the Rockies in places many wouldn't consider dragging a pop up.

Some day I'm going to convert the rear to Reyco Granning air ride.

Tradera, Thank-you , Thank-you, Thank you! Just got off the phone with Ginger and she has the refrigerator access door that I have been looking for 4 years. Sounds like she has lots of parts and they are in good condition. Notably, she has the entry door and the windshields if any one needs them.

Yes indeed, I'm aiming to head thru the area this summer, hoping to check out N Ca. , Oregon and Washington. Not sure of my timing but keep us posted if a Northern Califiornia meet up is in the offing I will try to join in.

I may ask you for tips in tour area when I know more about my timing.

Cheers Richard
