Belt Line Trim

Well I finished my belt line trim today. I installed the dark gray and looks pretty good. PeterHAirstreamer was right on about using a small scrapper to push the lip into the groove of the belt line trim. It took one roll of 1 1/2" and three rolls of 1/4". Had 12" of 1 1/2" and six feet of the 1/4" left over. Never realized Airstream could use so many different size rivets on my belt line trim pieces. One more job completed.

Looking good Cole,
What do you have planned for the area between the 1/4" trim?

Have a fellow that is going to make me a vinyl stripe that will blend with the motorhome when I can get it to him. He is going to experiment with some colors. He is going to install it also Hallelujah on him installing and not me

Interested what he comes up with! I've tried to find a vintage woodgrain one that matched the original and not come up with anything, nothing on the shelf anyway

Good job Cole!
I have used a large variety of Pin striping over the years, from the costly OEM Airstream colors to Rolls you can buy on Ebay. A very nice effect is to polish the center of the space between the belt lines and use an upper and lower pinstriping of your choice, 3M is by far the best material but also most expensive
I have never seen wood grain. Installing it takes a pretty high level of skill, avoiding over stretching and dealing with the curves. Small bubbles will eventually dry out.

310 Fuel gauge

Need some help troubleshooting my fuel system. I drained my main tank and a 32 gallon reserve tank on my 310 while replacing all the filters on my diesel fuel system. When my tank switch is switched to the reserve tank it shows around 3/4 when full, when the switch is flipped to main tank which is still empty it shows full. Can someone PLEASE advise on what I need to check to see what is going on. Bad gauge or two defective sending units. Trying to find out what brand the fuel gauge is, has E1359, 9203671 and 5024 stamped on the original gauge housing. Trying to get ready to finally travel some after all the mess going on. New style gauge and new sending unit on main tank part numbers would help if available. Finally seeing the light of day and want to enjoy some travel time.

I don't think the reserve tank was a factory option, first thing I'd do is make sure both senders have the same resistance range and then, if they do, next I'd check that the gauge is good, and if it is, then I'd trace the PO wiring and make sure it makes sense

Something I found on the net:

My fuel gauge only reads full.

If you cannot make your gauge read anything but full then depending on your ohm range you may have one of the following problems:

If you have a 0-30, 0-90 or 10-180 Ohm sender then the sender may not have a proper ground or there is a break in the sender lead wire.

If you have a 240-33 or 73-10 Ohm sender then most likely your sender lead wire is grounding out somewhere. Or possibly the center terminal on the sending unit itself is grounding out against the body of the car.

You should have the 0 to 90 Ohm.

310 Classic Fuel Tank

Just dropped my tank to check the wires and the fuel line condition. Attached two pics and was wondering if the two floats look normal for a 310 chassis. Never have fooled with this type tank before. Can't tell if the sending unit has been possibly changed and the other unit has 2500 ID written on it and a terminal post with nothing attached. Having my electrical guy coming to check the ohm's on my tank gauge and sending unit to see why it bottoms out past full when switched to the big tank. Hope I am identifying them the correct way. Any input would be appreciated

Those both look very different than what was on my 83 gas 310

Magnet, Thanks the gray one has a tube with screen on it where the fuel is pulled through to the original electric fuel pump and the second tube goes to the second electric pump where it transfers from front to rear tank. The small one is the sending unit for the gauge. The gray one is off something else because it doesn't cover the opening completely had sealer around the edge and a cork gasket. A mess. Will make a plate to mount the fill unit and that will seal properly.

Definitely looks like previous owner work or a custom order from airstream

Magnet, not sure since the PO had Airstream in California install the Cummins/Allison combo. Here is a pic of the fill tube assembly Gray fitting) it was not original to the tank for sure, no mounting holes in the tank and the flange falls down in the tank unless a piece of angle is fastened to support the flange and lots of sealer, having to make a flange plate to mount the gray flange properly. If anybody can chime in on the pic for a better way to mount please do. My tank measures out at 36 x 27 x16 which figures around 67 gallons does this sound right for their main tank. They also added a tank behind the original tank around 32 gallons or so. One positive it has been cleaned out and a coating applied inside so one positive thing. Does anybody know the technical name for this flange. Thanks Jim

Here are pics of my tank, I have a faded out blue/white sticker that did have the info at some point. At least I have one thing going for me the tanks are shaped and mounted the same, sending unit close but the rest no clue. Changed by Airstream during engine swap or PO changes during dual tank install since I have two electric fuel pumps now. On the bottom their is some type of sensor dead center that sticks up in the tank, was told probably the low level sensor for a diesel generator ?? Thanks Jim

Thor/Airstream was all over the place on what they used on the fuel tanks on these rigs! The tag on my tank is "For diesel fuel only" and has always been a gasser!? Go figure

After locating and going thru the encyclopedia of documents that came with my 310 the PO had the selector valve, sending unit 0-90ohms, wiring, etc and tanks cleaned/resealed and reinstalled on 5/27/12. The 32 gallon rear tank was added by the original owner in Calif and installed by Airstream and they used a 70-79 Scout II tank. I found the original tank and sending unit paperwork in my folder. So much fun figuring out the gauge nightmare.

Well finally after checking everything on this two tank fuel system the culprit was the wire going from the gauge to the wire that comes off the fuel solenoid was damaged somewhere. Ran new wire along with one for my LED backup lights to correct problem. Check the wire and I now have around 0.3 OHMS hallelujah. Installed a new style ISSPRO SU-SU15-90 sending unit that has the internal float recommended by my diesel mechanic. The old ISSPRO with the float/rod was making contact sporadically. Now to mount the tank after cleaning and undercoating the frame and metal work and try to get enough diesel to put in the tank. Glad that is over.
