Finding old parts & Hello!
Guys I haven't been online, so hello to all.
Everything on the 300LE had been doing well until I needed an oil change and then I ran into the problems of having a 1991 vehicle. There is a small grommet that goes from the oil fill tube into the rocker cover which cracked from age sending oil spilling down the side of the engine. A simple little probably 50 cent molded rubber item. Well, after nearly a half day of searching online for a part which was originally sold by Workhorse (P-30 chasis), I found an outfit on the west coast Ultra RV products (ultrarvproducts.com) who was able to locate it in Chicago and have it shipped to me in Florida. Yep, nearly $40 later I have the little part and life is good. The part number if anyone should need it is 10198950 Grommet-Oil Fill Tube. I didn't know that Up Time Parts is part of Navistar who now handles/owns what remains of Workhorse. They had the part and shipped it from Knoxville, TN. A long way around the country to get one little piece. Just FYI - NAPA, AutoZone, and O'Reilly don't carry this little gem.
All the systems on the motorhome are good and it's time to begin the polishing once again before we head out for our volunteering in Dec. & Jan. to enjoy it. Best to all, Jim
