Thanks Guys!

I've been dealing with distractions, but now I am back on track.

A non start issue got me moving.
I diagnosed the issue, as a failed mechanical fuel pump.
Pulled the fuels tank to clean and refurbish it and replace all of the flexible lines/filters/pump.

An 80 gallon tank is no flyweight!




I was surprised to find that the inside was great... somehow I don't think its the original!
Just a couple of light rust spots and some debris(dark spots are where the supports are welded).



Cleaned, prepped and painted.




Looks like I will need to replace the sender tho..

I have Missed your posts.

I have missed your posts!

I only have a few projects planned for the Motor Home over the winter.

I am following your path and will be spending some time working on a car instead.

As mentioned, I'd start with Tankcraft.

Tankcraft

0-90 ohm is a standard sending unit. All over ebay and such.

That would have worked, but I had already forged ahead.

A $22 90ohm universal unit off Ebay.


Removed it from its base, modified to the instructions for a 14" deep tank, and mounted on my original tank unit...



Done, and working.


Tank and straps painted, sender installed ready to go in.


I decided to replace ALL of the flex pipes, and discovered some were impossible to reach, so I removed and replaced/rerouted them.


Done.

While working thru the fuel system, I spotted this horror.



A melted starter cable that was a ticking time bomb... fried by the Banks Headers. Ther should be a heat shield there.
New one ordered and cable will be replaced.

Moved on to the doghouse insulation that was toast...


Stripped it all off... darn thing is just vac formed ABS!



Will be replacing the insulation with 1/2" MLV(Mass Loaded Vinyl) for sound insulation...


And a layer of ZetexPlus fireproof material between that and the engine..

VwMrBill,
Stripping is best done with Citrastrip or similar.
Not sure what you mean by repainting... You want it back to the original grey underside color?

Thanks Spritz!
Doesnt seem like I am making enough forward progress some months!

Looking good Glenn!

Recent updates...

Had to move the MH from one storage to the next.
Lots done in prep for that..

7 blade fan and new VC to replace the horrible fixed Flexfan.


Been working on getting it ready for smog, but she is fighting me!
Mounted the Correct Quadrajet.
Fitted a new Holley FPR,a and gauge..



Correct smog pump and bracket fitted... Not got the pulley on yet.



Installed a Innovate Fuel/Air Meter, and the O2 sensor..


Gauge temporarily installed in a vacant spot.


Starter heat shield.


Replaced leaking Power Steering Pump.



Doghouse insulation underway...


New LED Clearance lights...



Motorhome was moved 50 miles with no real issues!

Hi All!
Well, Glen poked me to update my thread... where did the year go!

Let me say, I have not been idle!

One of the boys blew up his Subaru motor...
Well, it started with a split radiator tank... replaced that, but the damage was done... it came back a week later with a blown headgasket... blowing steam out of the radiator, and pea soup oil.
Out came the motor... I took the risk, and just did headgaskets, waterpump, and timing belt..



Put it back in, and it sounded and ran fine...
A week later it suddenly started a knocking noise.
Out it came again, but I knew what to expect when I drained the oil and it looked like this...


Pulled and stripped the motor down...
Oil pan was full of bearing debris..


Motor split.


Rod bearing on #2 and #3 where spun, and welded to the crank and/or rods...




So, rebored the block, new pistons, rods, bearings, crank and oil pump...







Aaaad... back in again!
