Tony, I'm pretty good at taking stuff apart....I never said anything about being able to put stuff back together again

I bet that got Martin's attention

Peter on the other hand has proven that he can take it apart AND put it back together the right way

Judging by your engine test and how your rig is coming together, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to see it for sale on Craigslist with the line "interior gutted ready for your imagination; all the hard work is done".

It takes time to do it right the first time. Trust me, I'd sooner you working on my rig than any yobo in a RV service centre; even "The Almighty Mothership".

Cheers
Tony

Parts question for those attending... Does anyone have an extra air conditioning condenser for the engine? Mines been busted and I haven't been able to locate an original

Have you tried this part number referenced by Gregg over on the 'Peanut' thread?

Matt,

I would highly recommend buying a Parallel flow condenser as a replacement.

Here's a quote from Gregg Wallace at post #136 on Peanut's thread

"I got my condenser from Old Air Products of Ft. Worth, TX - a short drive from my house. They were great people to work with me. The condenser is their part number 11-2015 which is a 20" x 15" unit configured to mount with a vertical radiator.

With slow leaking issues on my original system I decided to change everything and convert to 134a. The evaporator (their 800 series unit with a front made for attaching hoses, receiver/drier with a binary high pressure cutout switch, hoses, and condenser all came from Old Air Products. The rebuilt A6 compressor came from O'Reilly Auto Parts. They ordered the one for a 76 Pontiac Astra from their warehouse and it had the drive belt groove in the proper location to replace the original compressor. All of the original engine mounts were retained as well as the two controls in the dash. The refrigerant hoses routed a little differently but worked out well with the radiator out of the way.
Gregg"


Here's a link to the 11-2015 condenser.

Several years ago I purchased a 22" x 22" parallel flow condenser for my Argosy. It just barely fits and is also the same condenser that I'll be ordering for Peanut. The parallel flow condensers are about third more efficient than the original style condenser so you can go smaller and still get the same cooling capacity.

Getting last minute details for the "Get-Together" hammered out...if anyone thinks they will need propane, I am trying to make arrangements with the local propane company to come to Penn Wood on Sat. morning to fill anyone up that needs it. The temperature cannot be guaranteed this time of the year so make sure your heating system is operational if you care.Regards, Bob

No go on the propane at Penn Wood...you will have to fill your rigs before you get there.
