I have a 1992 350LE and it doesn't have a "molded" spare tire at the rear.

Very Nice

They were named a classic at the factory and they are more of a classic now.

We did the same thing last August. Looked for a long time and then drove home a 91 350LE. We were planning a trip to look at one in North Carolina last summer. Is this one from that area.

No. I found this in Georgia. Thanks for all the kind responses to this post. I think the fumes are getting into the cabin from a hose from the heater box to the vents on the dash. This weekend I will try to replace them. Now on to fixing other little problems like a drive line vibration at 55 mph that smooth’s out at 60 mph and comes back at 66 mph. Any ideas?

I had a similar vibration and it was the u-joints they didn't look worn but I took them apart and there were wear marks on the torque side from the bearings. I replaced them and it cured it. Also check the hanger bearing at the same time.

I can move the rear carrier bearing around a little but it is suspended in rubber so I'm not sure if that’s normal movement or not. I may replace all the u/joints and both carrier bearing just for my piece of mind. I checked the price of the bearings and they are $20 each. Not too bad. Don’t know about the U/joints yet.
This thing is bigger than my house!

For a rig that's almost twenty years old, it looks like it only rolled out of the factory yesterday! Congratulations!

To think that was in the same state I lived in and I missed it. Lol. Looks great! Good luck with it. Sounds like you started with the projects like me with my 345. Haha. Wouldn't have it any other way.

A vibration at specific speeds usually indicates a tire problem. Maybe mismounted tires? You can start by having them spin balanced. Preferrably at a shop that can do it while they are still mounted on the vehicle.

BTW, beautiful coach! I hope they didn't charge you by the foot!

Very sweet!
I wish I had had the money to buy something as nice... but I just figure mine is a "Blank Canvas" for now, and I have "Headroom" to upgrade and repair!
I noticed mine had a slight vibration at certain speeds, but I felt and got my passenger to go back there whilst I varied the speed and load, and he concured it was from the pass side rear. My guess is its a tire.
Check and see if it disapears on or off the gas... that would point more to a UJ or center bearing... both cheaper than the next possibilies!
