Thanks Keyair; I pm'd you. I am about 70% committed at this point, and from what I have read if I get it I will need to be committed!

Great sticky....Just to add, along with a truck GM service manual covering the P30, a 1983 310 service manual, I have the original Isuzu service manual for the 6B If anyone wants it I will try to get it scanned.

Yes, please scan the Diesel motor manual...

I just added the Official GM vaporlock cause and cure PDF form 1984.
Chevy P-30 VaporLock Fix 1984.pdf

Please note that comment on the last page about adding a hose to pipe air from the front of coach to air filter snout and how that improves fuel cooling...

Front windshield moulding.

Had both our windshields replaced a few years ago and the glass shop said they could no longer get the black moulding. Cracked another one down here and saw a mobile glass shop guy who confirmed what they said. There is a generiac moulding available he said is a bearcat to install. What he did say, was to coat the moulding from time to time with petrolatum jelly to keep them soft. Thought all might appreciate his advise.

I disagree Mike, I had my windshields replaced last year with new gasket and talked to the glass shop last month and he can still get the gasket.

Cheers, Dan

It's the black two-piece locking moulding I'm told is no longer made. The gasket is easy money.

My lock strip came with the gasket. The gasket wouldn't be much good without the lock strip. By gasket I mean the rubber moulding and lock strip that holds the glass. I'm not sure what the big deal is but I stood there as they removed both pieces of glass and all the gasket material down to bare aluminum and then installed all new gasket and glass. The gasket is a single unit vulcanized and holds both pieces of glass. I talked to the guy about 2 months ago for current prices and availability and everything is available with an installed price of about $2500. The glass went up about $100 per side since I did mine about two years ago.

Cheers, Dan

Someone at the camp had a question I could not answer: Did AS make the 345 mo/ho in a diesel version, or was it just the 328/310 and 36 footer?
