Going by memory you get a new shaft, seals ,t , hose , gaskets and a new aluminum adapter. This is a Chelsea factory kit. The existing aluminum adapter likely has a small hole in the bottom to allow for moisture. The new one is sealed with a fitting in the back. The t is needed along with a restrictor port to slow down lubrication. Not a tough repaire but some care needs to be exercised when assembling to obtain the correct gear lash via shims. The other alternative is to periodically lubricate manually with spline lube.

The wet pto install is not that difficult to do as long as you have a decent amount of mechanical ability. You will need a shop press to press the bearings off and on the new shaft. I think I bought the kit from John Davis at jdrv1.com and I would recommend doing the same. He is very helpful if you have questions while doing the install.

On my 2004 Inspire with the 350, the pump is mounted to the back side of the engine front gear cover that drives the injection pump. So it is not an issue AFAIK.

A couple things to consider about the Inspires, you are still riding on a great chassis, same build quality that CC is known for and less bells and whistle stuff to go wrong, that at some point will.

My Lexus weighs right around 5.5k and I live in AZ. While I do slow down on the big grades here, it is not much worse than what I experienced with my Dmax GMC pulling a loaded 28 foot toyhauler. Pretty much same MPG too.

Another upside for the wife and I were the upgrades that the PO had put in, including heated wood floors instead of carpet (kids/dogs), CC factory replaced ceiling LED lighting and flat panel monitors. Not to mention the light ash cabinets and nickel fixtures rather than gold made it feel like a much more modern RV. To each their own, but I detest gold/brass and beveled mirrors... Hey, the '80's called and they want their RV back!

February 2014 we picked up a 2006 40' Inspire with 34,000 miles on it. I Love how Solid the coach is. The ride, cabinets, etc.. I put the wet kit on the PTO and have not done the radiator yet. I think in the overall picture of RVing in a Class A, that the Radiator and Wet Kit is no big deal. The Quality and the Price of the Coach was worth it to me.
The only way I would consider a coach under 400hp is if someone gave it to me or I stole it. Yes, you can get there with 300hp or 350hp. My 2 requirements when I upgraded from my Holiday Rambler was Solid Wood Cabinets and 400 hp.
I purchased a $5,000.00 4 yr extended Warranty with a $500.00 deductible that I have used twice. There is an issue with something in the fiberglass on my coach side walls along with some other Inspires that I looked at. My coach looks good and I do not plan on doing anything with the fiberglass issue. The Inspire is entry level but I do not need any more Bells and Whisles for my use. I travel with the coach 1 to 2 months throughout the year.
Hope this helps. Call me @ 951 236-7645 if you have any questions.

I would stay away from the ISX engine. Seems like a lot of them drop a valve in #6. One I know of blew within 20 miles of Cummins doing $20,000 of engine work although in this case it was a rod through the block and $44,000 add'l cost.
