That's pretty high praise. I suspect Brad has forgotten more about these motor homes than I have learned in the year I have owned this one.

Wow! I didn't realize y'all could be so easily duped

Reminds me of the old W.C. Fields quote "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit."

I will say this, there is at least one major difference between Chiefair and myself. He actually seems to get stuff done. Most of my projects are just that, projects.

With all that being said thank you for the compliments

Brad

Drove it down the road tonight! No grill or hood, doghouse off, but it does run and drive. Need to make a few adjustments but should be back in business by the end of the weekend.

Ya gotta love it when a plan comes together. Let us know how it goes when you get it dialed in.

Took a very successful 240 mile shake down drive today. No big issues arose. I think I can declare this project complete. I'm sure there will be many more!

Good for you nice job.
Did you take a look at the spark plugs to see the color.

Wow! I'm really impressed with how fast you got the job done. I know just how much work you had to do to get that engine out and then back in again.

When I'm ready to stuff the 454 back in my Argosy I'll give you a call

Brad
