Sounds tempting, but I think the open bar would eliminate any advantage of me helping, it could make things worse
I can help you here in text or over the phone if you really get stuck.

The basic module swap is easy as long as you can easily get to the old one and you can verify the OEM wire colors and match them with my wires.

The V2 wiring is a bit more involved, but still fairly easy.


I would say the hardest part is either pulling the dash completely or working in the tight space with the dash tilted out.

BTW, dont forget you should have a tilt steering wheel, I did the first time I pulled the dash. Lots more room with the wheel down

I guess it's fear of the unknown. I have spent way too much time behind the dash of my 280 which has the earlier style dash, the 345 will be the beginning of a new learning experience. The 345 was sold as an empty shell with the Cummins/Allison and I assume it has the fluid monitoring system but until I actually lay eyes on it, that is just an assumption.

We are going camping next week in the 280 so my time is spoken for until we return home. It's hard to have the new toy just sitting there and not being able to play with it.

The PC board maker is shipping 3 more boards to me and they will be here Saturday. I cant do any building until next week.
I have promised one to Cole3444, that leaves 2 available.
Again, I would prefer to give everyone a chance to own one before serving second helpings. If I get more than 2 requests I may have to pull names out of a hat.

I can build these as V1 or V2, you need to specify what version for your request.
After these 3, I am taking a break until fall. I will need to restock components, and I need to find a new source of harness wire.

OK, your name is on the last one for this batch.
I am reserving the last one in this batch as a spare in case anyone has problems and needs a swap-out

Sorry for the delay on the last batch of modules.

The weather has been good so we have been out RV'ing.
I hope to get back to building in early September.

On a side note, I ran the gas in my tank low enough to trip the low fuel warning.
on my 60 gallon tank it was just below 1/4 on the gauge and on the tank dip stick it was about 12 to 13 gallons remaining.
That is the same calibration I used on all the modules I have made so far. I hope that works for you all.

Enjoy your great weather and camping, here in Tenn we are having storms that we haven't seen in years so we are paddling around. Just let me know when you have mine ready. No big hurry due to weather.

I have parts to do the last 3 modules, but for the moment, my abilities to work with small parts is not good enough to build them.

I have moved on to simpler tasks, like 3D printing of weep hole covers, it is more brain work than nimble fingers work.
They are adjusting my meds and I am doing much better this month than last.

I hate to leave any project incomplete.......

Wait a minuet, I own a Airstream, it is always an incomplete project!

Wayne,
If you ship boards and parts to me I'd be willing to assemble and ship back

I was a surface mount rework tech for awhile, can solder

If it comes down to me not being able to finish it, at all, I may take you up on that.
It is not a simple task, besides the boards with parts on both sides, there are the interface cables and then calibration. What is in my head can make for a much faster assembly that someone learning it all. Just waiting for the body to be willing to cooperate

Well, hopefully it doesn't come down to that, but if you feel like getting the bulk of it knocked off the list just me know!

I enjoy spending a few hours soldering. It's zen, like a productive meditation

Need to sit down and copy that ZEMCO circuit while I'm at it!

Has anyone been able to source an OEM fuel gauge?

The PO replaced the one in my 1984 310 and I think that is why my low fuel light is on when the tank is full and turns of as the fuel level drops.

If the gauge and sender are matched and the fuel module is functional it should light at about 1/4 tank. There may be a resistor missing from the back of the replacement fuel gauge or the fuel sender is bad. You should verify the fuel gauge matches the actual level in the tank. Not easy to do unless you have dip stick access or start from empty and add 5 gallons at a time while reading the gauge.
