New member Restoring 1971 D-20

Hi. I aquired a 1971 D-20 Winne. It is need of TLC and some interior restoration but it seems soilid as far as shell and chasis is concerned. I did have a few leaks in the roof where the seams were but I have fixed those now. I currently have the heads off of the Dodge 318 as I am inspecting them and going to do a valve Lap if needed although I was suprised as to how clean and new the heads and cylinder walls look.
I also removed the 2 barrel manifold and carb and bought a 4 barrel manifold with a Thermoquad 850 CFM carb as it was struggling with the 2 barrel when I brought it home.
I have also removed the points style dist and purchased a electronic one along with the proper wiring harness from Mopar Performance to install it.

I do know none of the dash instruments operate so I am debating designing my own dash and installing all auto Meter Phantom guages plus a few extra I think would come in handy like trany oil temp, engine oil temp, tach, and a fuel level sender and guage for the extra fuel tank that was installed.

I am in need of a forum to help me with engine a chasis info and tutorials on repairing the engine wiring and the MH electrical, water,sewer, propane systems as it has pretty much been either removed or I can't get it to work properly.

Hey Spudler,
Great to see you here. The Vintage forums are a great place to ask questions and find others with knowledge about things you are looking for. Since I see you are in Oregon, as I am, you might check out a website we have in the Northwest. Northwest Campers

Thanks for the replys. My biggest issue is finding info and specifications on it. once i have those I should have no probs at all as what I can't find I can possible design and send off to a company I used to work for and have them cut it for me. Like dash panels for newer guages and any aluminum or stainless steel I items for wherever I may need them.
