Welcome to irv2 Johne. I know you are probably anxious to revive your newly purchased Dodge. Does that girl have a 440 with shift on the dash? We had a '78 Whinny with a 440; it's a strong engine. The first thing I check for on a new rig is water leaks.The best way is to fill the onboard water tank and turn on the water pump. The pump should run and pressureize the system. If the pump continues to run there is an air or water leak. also IMHO about the best money spent on a vintage motor home is a tranny flush. That old Whinny jumped up and ran like a puppy after all the sludge was flushed out of the tranny. Keep us posted and Ask questions. Someone out there has the answer.
