  1. I’ve read and been told to fill crankcase full of oil. Remove plugs, fill with oil and replace. I like the loosening of the rockers as supermechanic said. I’d even fill the intake and valve covers. Any oil inside will have some moisture in it so you’ll want to get as much as possible out. When your ready, drain everything and start it up. It will definitely be a smoker for awhile. Mike
  2. That’s ugly. Wish I could help. Good luck
  3. Looks great. I would put a couple of supports from the center just below the shaft to the base at an angle. I’ll agree with Mike H about the shaft length. Mike
  4. Get a dumpster and a tractor. Scrap the frame. Don’t repurposed the frame. You’ll be better off in the long run. Rv frames are quite lite.
  5. Started out with a 68 Starcraft pop up. Had it 10+ years. I rebuilt just about everything on it. Sold it and got a Gulf Stream conquest. It’s 29 feet from ball to bumper with a slide. They say it can sleep 9, but only if 7 are kids. The wife calls it a hotel on wheels. We like to go to a campground that has a 400 acre lake. It’s about 40 miles away. I’m ready to go and just get away for the weekend. Mike
  6. Great choice. I did the same thing about 10 years ago to pull my camper.
  7. All I know was they have been hauling in all week from somewhere. I didn’t hear any emergency vehicles. The tow company was a red rotator with 5 axles. Sorry I didn’t the name.
  8. When I was at work today, I saw this on one of my trips to my van at the next construction site. Someone definitely didn’t have a Good Friday. I saw it hooked up to the tow truck and I’d say the frame and bed are twisted quite bad.
  9. I would like to know where I can find the model number on a truck trans. It’s a 5 speed. Thanks mike
  10. Thanks guys. That’s what I will need once the gaskets get here. Much appreciated. Mike
  11. I hate it when someone borrows a tool and doesn’t return it.

    Manual

    I’m looking for a manual for my rd450. I’m replacing the head gasket and need to know torque sequence and settings. It’s a 1950s engine. I’ve been searching online with no luck so far. Please let me know if you know of a source. Thanks mike
  13. Way back when I was working for a GC, the last piece of drywall got signed by everyone there. Sometimes we would put pop cans on the wall with dates on them. Mike
