  1. That for $1800 would have lasted about 5 minutes even it had an old axle and was missing an engine! 12 grand would have been more like it! I'll bet even that picture was taken years ago.
  2. Drive more worry less! The retainer is small enough to fit through a drain plug. The V6 had issues there is no doubt that someone has been there before after all these years.
  3. Parked and heated you are probably fine, while moving so does the water in the tanks that makes them less likely to freeze. Drive the southern route don't come to Maine in the depths of winter! If the camper doesn't freeze you will!
  4. That's an "E" ring there is nothing in the engine that would use that, that I can think of. It looks like something that would be on throttle linkage. Probably dropped and lost forever probably when the valve cover was off.
  5. Scotchlocks are ok but not exposed to any kind of weather. Butt connectors are ok if crimped properly but again no good in the weather. They do make butt connectors with built in shrink tube they are pretty weatherproof. Size is important they must match the wire gauge.
  6. I'm 75 I worked on vehicles for 38 years it took the American industry decades to realize that the Europeans had the right ideal about carburetors.
  7. Remove the filter blow thu it if it resistive replace it. Mabe a good ideal to blow air back into the tank also they have a screen filter inside the tank. A carbureted engine any more is a dinosaur think lawn mower then remember why they were hard to start or ran poorly.
  8. In the older engines without electronics the pcv does not play much of a roll in engine management the effect would generally be seen in engine idle (faster than normal). I think you are on the right tract with filter/fuel lines.
  9. I'm a little late to this party but throwing parts at it is a no win situation. You generally don't fix it and spend a lot of money doing so. If the igniter is toes up you aren't going anywhere. It sure sounds to me like a fuel issue.
  10. Basically if it's comfortable enough for the occupants it's OK however I do know people that would have to be tied down in bed! The little square bubble levels are good enough I just put one in the fridge.
  11. If you are running on battery alone that maybe your problem they draw a lot of power from the battery. After resting the battery will recover enough to restart the heater. If it's cold out the only why you will get by is to have the motorhome plugged in to the mains.
  12. The valve seat is harder than the valve the first thing to ware is the valve. It is quite a task to replace them why do they all need replacement?
  13. Yeah you really don't want to wake up dead.
