Check this full monty with a 502 on a Classic moho. I don't know who he is or if he's on the forums site. Well dressed with a few toys.

There's a link to a fourth section as well at the end of the final movie.

Does anyone have photos of the inner fenders on the front of their motorhome? I assume they should be closed in to improve airflow through the radiator and over the motor. My left side has an aluminum panel with a cutout to access the master cylinder from the wheel well. The panel blocks about 2/3 of the left wheel well, the rear 1/3 is open. The right side is completely open with no sign of mounting brackets that would indicate there used to be a panel there. I will probably build something to close that area off, it would be great to get some pictures to see what it should look like.

Passenger side, made out of thin aluminum. I will take that panel off in a week from Saturday and could give you the dimensions. It appears to be made from trailer underbelly material

Thanks for the photos. My drivers side panel looks the same. I will have to build a passengers side panel. I can see the bolts along the top edge of yours, but I don't see any signs of a bracket to bolt to on mine. Guess I will be starting from scratch. If you have it off and can get measurements, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for the photo. Interesting how different these two panels are. I found this on the web: http://truckroadservice.com/barth_at...2015983041.pdf. Just have to decide how fancy I am going to get.

Finally started the 502 for the first time today! The excitement was short lived. The fuel line adapter I bought for the Holley has a bad flare and leaks fuel continually. Back to the speed shop on Monday for a replacement.

Sounds like your startup went better than my Argosy 454 startup did. After about 5 minutes of running a couple of my spark plug cables caught on fire and and melted!

Melted plug wire video at post #53

Brad; not being mechanically I take it that the spark plug wires are not supposed to catch on fire?

I am now waiting for the arrival of my 3rd fuel line adaptor. First two leaked on the flare. Still plenty of opportunity for a fire here!

I built a cardboard template of the GM inner fender I found on the Barth website. It was nice but the frame mounting points were not going to be fun to get to. I made a new template based on the GM one but attached to the body like the photos that folks here provided. I'm pretty happy with the way it worked out.
