Ok so I have it up high enough to take the transmission out but IDK if I have enough room yet to slide it out the side. The transmission has no reverse and needs to be rebuilt. My uncle was a transmission re-builder for 25 years and has volunteered to help me do the job.

Was it advertised as "Stove's never been used"?
Looks like my husband's dream rig...
Except he'd probably cover the sink, too!
I can state that the previous owners used the microwave much more than they did the stovetop. The wife was never much of a cook...and I am not sure she ever cooked in their S/B either - BUT they both loved RVing and loved their last motorhome dearly.
She did state that she hoped the new owner enjoyed it as much as they did...
Good Luck "Guy"!

The new owner is already enjoying the project and plans to hit the road as soon as it's road/travel worthy.

That wife is my new Role Model...
Unfortunately for me, my husband thinks that every camping meal must include
"Something Fried in Bacon Grease!"
Can't do that with a microwave...or can I?
Hmmmmm........

Yes you can do it. No it does not taste the same. IT'S TERRIBLE. I threatening to remove our micro wave the last time the wife cooked bacon and tatos like that. I thought it tasted like it was cooked in the fly machine.


Guy n Dog: That front picture clip is awesome. First picture of it and I love it. I just hope you have heavy duty jack stands. Those look kind of light to me. Don't pull the tranny unless someone is there with you for safety reasons. I won't go into my EMT war stories...

The jack stands are rated for 3.5 tons each so 14,000 pounds total they should hold up the front end ok. I would rather have a set of stands that were taller and wider at the base but I think all will be fine. I'll be using a transmission jack and I've done a bunch of transmission jobs a few of them being 4X4s with married transfer cases so I should be fine with this 727........ I have never rebuilt one before so that will be fun.

From what I can remember from my earlier days the 727 was simple and straight forward to rebuilt or maybe that was because there was so many of them

My Uncle rebuilt automatic transmissions for 25 years and has volunteered to help

I wish I knew someone who knew about RV roofs too
