what repair book do you have?? I contacted Haynes and they said they didn't have anything covering my chasis.
I need to buy one so I can get teh torque specs and bolt tightening sequence. and figure out what up with the funky timing cover and water pump housing.

Not sure about the Old Winnies, but I did my engine swap on my Fleetwood Limited out the front.
But it was a John Deere Chassis and the EFI 460 would have been a bear to tear down in the hole.


Before! Ford EFI 460 cu in gasser.


After! 5.9 L Cummins Turbo Diesel.


I was able to do all the work, and I mean everything, by myself.
Read that as, no help what so ever.
It took some real cleaver planning and rigging to get it done.
It likened it to building a full size sailing ship inside a five gallon water bottle.

Very cool! I'd think the 460 would have had more power unless you did some upgrades on that Cummins.

The body of the Classic Winnebago is designed to take the engine out through the front. Remove the bumper and the grills, and there is a removable cross brace between them which also comes out.

You will need to back the RV up on some blocks to lift the vehicle about 4 - 6", since the design is such that the engine is to come down, then out the front. Any other way really isn't feasible in comparison to the original design method.

Numerous members of www.classicwinnebagos.com have pulled their engines, can guide you through the process at any point, and can give you all the information and advice you need.

There's also complete service and parts manuals avaiable fory your rig, and boatloads more.

The community has been around for 10 years and is the best of it's kind for your specific RV.

It's going to the junk yard when he's done. Not worth the work of pulling off the front. That top pull pic in post #6 is from Classic Winns site.

Man, the radiator was a HUGE pain to get out!! Those rear mounts were so hard to get to underneath.

Almost there!

I totally agree with AAron, keep the posts relevant to the topic. It makes it difficult to stay on track when people make irrelevant posts... and then get replies, in the middle of someone else's topic.

It's not rocket science, just takes a little common sense. If it's relevant, post it, if not, start a new topic.... after using the search to see if the info is already there.

Moderator... Would you provie a little help by removing the irrelevant post, please?

on www.classicwinnebagos.com this stuff doesn't fly and it's only a day, 2 at the most until the interjected, off-topic posts are removed and the member who posted them is guided on how to properly use the forums.

So, in essence, this very post is so, it can be deleted because I don't want it mucking up the topic any more than it already is.

But, I just wanted you to know, AAron, I feel your pain.

Keep at it, you know it ain't easy, but isn't impossible either. Sorry to see yet one more classic RV bite the dust, but it's inevitable sometimes and, if parting out this one keeps more on the road, then it's worth it in the long run.

The battery that fit a 73 Dodge truck w/440 will fit the MH.
