SafetyPhil, here is a link to the scan of the diagrams in the Chiltons. The third one down should be what you are looking for:

This is the manual I have that includes these, the Chilton 26400:

We've had a nasty cold snap here in Colorado so I went and fired up the '79 class c and let it warm up to operating temp. Checked it over for any leaks and none. I sat in it and enjoyed the smooth rumble of the big 460. It runs so great and always impresses me. Did the same to the '74 F350 but that's garaged. Gas has dropped to about $1.70 per gallon this weekend so I'll probably go fill up the 2- 25 gallon tanks in the '79, the 75 gallon in the '97 Aerbus, and the 2-22 gallon tanks in the '74 Ford. All in all that's about 165 gallons of gas and if I save about $1.00 a gallon, that's a $165 savings which I can put towards some new Interstate batteries for the Aerbus. I'll make sure to put fuel stabilizer in each tanks which I always do.

Wil o leaf: Thanky, that was a lot of different vacuum lines that were provided. I'll take a look at the two manuals today. You did good.

Also gives me the opportunity to tuck a layer of reflectix behind the aluminum skin on the sides (its one piece so its only attached at the perimeter, making it easy to slide reflectix between it and the frame), before I install new pink board insulation to replace the original styrofoam board.

Plus, the wall paneling in this model was just flat out ugly. I like 70s wall paneling and this stuff was horrendous, plus throw in a badly done attempt by previous owners to paint over it.....

Going to repanel the walls with a thin plywood as a base, then attach a nice finish wood over the top, friend suggested using the thinner type pre-finished wood flooring for a really nice effect.

SafetyPhil, most of those diagrams are for other engines, like the 351. The third one down is for your 460 eight.

I tried to scan my Chilton manual but it would not lie flat enough on the scanner bed, so i found that PDF link and it is from exactly the same manual.

I C looks nice so far. Have you seen the paneling at Menards its thin, prefinished and comes in several different designs and finishes? It's online under paneling on there search page its light weight depending on style.
JS,
Tim

I have one of my replacement vents (bedroom) installed today. and should have the bathroom vent with fan installed tomorrow. We didn't find any signs of water coming in through those 2 vents but the skylight in the bathroom seems to be the big culprit along with some pinholes/tears in the rubber roof.

We did our best to seal the skylight today along with the holes we can see. The rubber roof coating and the second vent should be going on tomorrow. The whole skylight will need replacing but I need to have one ordered since the local RV dealer doesn't have any in stock.

The next project will be to put a roof over the top of the motorhome which I might be able to get done with some help from family.

Man-o- Man that is a drag, have to ask did you calculate what they charge for shipment? Or is there another Big Box Store by ya?
I'm thinking about coming your way on the way home next spring. I could throw a couple sheets in the MH
So what are your plans on using for the paneling?

Tim

Finished up with some painting. Getting it ready for the Dresser drawers from the S&B.
Brought all the freeze items into the house. 2 weeks I'll be putting it back in.
No Drapes today.
No call on my new tires.
Took the hub caps off the rears in anticipation of New Rubber. I really would like to get some extensions for the inter tires.
Tim
