Derek,
The 310 Service Manual I have states that the 454 engine cooling system capacity is 27 quarts....
Not sure if that includes the extra that the "Motor Assist" water heater adds, but assume it includes aux heater and pipework....
Because...
I checked my Hayes manual for my 454 powered Chevy Suburban... and that states between 20 and 24 quarts coolant capacity.

As far as coolant type goes..
The 1990 P30 GM chassis manual states that an Ethyl Glycol based antifreeze that meets GM Specification 1825-M should be used.

A/C Dash Control

I remember reading somewhere in the forum a sticky thread that had the part number for the pushbutton A/C control unit for an 1984 345. Does anyone remember where that thread is located? Thanks, Tim

Tim,

I don't know about a part number being listed anywhere but I do know that the the pushbutton A/C control is a Chrysler product and can be found in 80s and probably early 90s Dodge and Chrysler cars, vans and trucks. I salvaged a number of them out of a junk yard one time just by looking in each Chrysler vehicle to see if they matched. They made various models that are compatible. The major difference seemed to be in the push buttons, some were chromed and some were just black plastic.

I've also found them on ebay by searching for chrysler heater or a/c, etc.

Hope this helps.

Brad

Brad -

Thanks for the information. I did find the control unit. It is a six button A/C and Heater Control Switch, the interchange part number is: 3847742. Murray Products carries the switch in stock.

Best, Tim

I also have found Richard's site a source for otherwise hard to get parts. He has all the old ACME system information. (think he was part of that operation???)

Some of your same ACME parts are unsed on my Clipper and detailed here.

Maximum respect to Captain Kaos on the 73-87chevvytruck forum for making these available.

Note that many of the manuals run to the early 90s and have specific sections on the P30 chassis. Invaluable stuff imho. Enjoy

Steve - I've sorted these out so that they are easier to find and use, split by type and year. Might be worth sticking them on the sticky.

Newbie Intro

Hello Everyone,

Didn't know where to post a Newbie Intro, so here it is.

I have been researching the different Manufacturers and Motorhome models and have narrowed it down to the early GMCs, the FMCs or the early Airstreams.

I am looking at a 1986 345 Limited TB(????) with about 65,000 miles. New Engine installed and I would insist on a pre-sale inspection.

I want to upgrade the interior since I am semi-retired, but still living on a fixed income of about $3000/mth.

Am I delusional to think I can do this or should I look for something newer?

Did I mention I needed to drive the 345 from Texas to Virginia? By myself. I am a 64 years old and am mechanical savvy. (Worked on airplanes, built satellites and can't say no to a good tool sale.)

Thanks.

Stephanie (dragonlady12).....Yes, that's the nickname of the U2 Spy plane.

Hi There.
Post your question down in the Classic section, as that is where you will get the most traction for the vehicle you are looking at and for!
We will be kind, but we will be honest, and I think you will prefer that!

Stephanie in case that suggestion is not clear, when you go "up" to the Classic Motorhomes sub-forum here:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311/

. . . at the top left you can hit "New Thread" and start your own discussion, instead of being in this "Sticky" thread which is always at the top of the list.

There is also an Introductions sub-forum if you prefer that for your range of questions:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f368/

Good luck!

Peter
