I got the carburator back ! New gasket, about an hour to figure out where the vacuum lines went, thank god for the original vacuum hose diagram on the side of the air cleaner, cranked it over and varoommmm ! Factory high RPM 1900 , choke off 700, thermostat opened, topped off antifreeze, no leaks, I am a happy camper. I replaced the new R-12 expansion valve that I broke during installation (DAMM), no leaks, and is holding 30" of vacuum, I will charge AC, set timing, and do base idle adjustments next weekend. Waiting for new spark plug wire holders to come from Rock Auto, then new front tires on, take it out of the shop, turn it around and bring it back in. February projects include rear drive axle overhaul/brakes, tag axle overhaul/brakes, rear shocks, shower drain, RG6 cable install, in-motion satellite install, entry door overhaul, hinges, oh....I also found a broken dash heater control cable yesterday ! It's never done.....Click image for larger version

Am I wrong in thinking that the heater/AC controls are a Chrysler product ??? Need to obtain a new heater control cable, from the dashboard climate control unit to the heater control valve under the right side of the hood. 65" long to be exact...one end is broken off. There is a seven digit part number on the cable casing (0483177). Any help would be appreciated.

So now I am waiting for parts, the water system is shut down until i get the replacement faucet from Faucet Direct for the bathroom. The front end is still jacked up waiting for replacement air lines for the front coil spring air bags. I'm going to change the oil again anyway before I let it down, still have to grease the front end and replace the original spark plug wire looms before I let it down. Temperature here is now minus 8 degrees so I am definitely glad I am inside. Purchased new electric roof horns to replace the corroded ? original ones, new spot/search light installed...came with a neat wireless remote control so the wife can use it while we are hunting down our campsite.....seeing that we always seem to arrive at our destination after the sun sets...why is that ??? My hopes for Sunday is to get it out of the shop turn it around bring it back in and get started on the rear end.....more later

So I lost about 1/2 of my 30lb. R-12 freon tank due to a faulty CHINESEIUM valve on the disposable cylinder and yes, it was shut off. Needless to say I found the bad heater control valve cable and repaired it...a new one is impossible to find. To my amazement after charging approximately 3 1/2 lbs. of R-12 the AC system works incredibly well. I took the cover off the interior heater core/evaporator core housing and cleaned that area up. With the climate control vacuum lines now all repaired everything appears to be in working order. I adjusted the base idle mixture screws at set the ignition timing to spec. All factory spark plug wire holders are now new and installed. I greased the front end and the tires are back on. Next weekend I will pull it out of the shop, turn it around Nd start on the rear end. I am also going to replace the rear main oil seal in April. It appears to be a two piece seal which requires removal of the oil pan.Click image for larger version

Looks good ,I remember rebuilding two to three carburetors a day use to love doing those quadrajet carbs they were the easiest to rebuild. Only thing you might consider replacing is your inline fuel filter clamps they don't look like fuel line clamps as they can eventually cut the fuel line and lead to leaks, the fuel line clamps have a rolled edge.

Yeah, Thanks Don, unfortunitly the fuel line is 1/2" and they don't make those rolled edge or as we call T-Bone clamps in that large of a size, being that the fuel filter is on the suction side with the exception of the factory 3 PSI fuel pump in the rear I don"t think we will have a problem there Got the under couch heater duct work all finished last night as well. And what about that doorbell ??? Can that be replaced with a regular one from a house??? Before I put the drawer back in under the couch I'm going to do some research on that. And last, but not least replaced the stove/oven vent as well !

I planned on doing the tag axle shocks and rear brakes as well, but I did not expect to find the magnet wires broken...going to go with complete new self-adjusting ones. Also starting to replace all window gaskets and seals. Finished up the bathroom plumbing and sink as well. I am really hoping to make it to Colorado for the MOTORHOME get together but I think I am not going to be ready in time. I already have started a project list for next year...rebuild battery box, all slide out storage compartments, and full body strip/repaint.Click image for larger version
