Still cleaning from the Extinguisher going off (accidentally) Pr-opt up the couch and took all the extra parts the PO left us Cleaned it all and then vacuumed the area and replaced it all.

Got the quadrajet rebuilt over the weekend; she runs well now that she has a working accelerator pump.

Checked the steering linkage and found it in good shape. Found a bad brake light switch. Went to tighten fan balts and found the water pump is about to come apart. Pulled the air cleaner to try adjusting the choke and found a Quadrajet instead of the Thermoquad that belonged there. There was no choke and the choke pull off coil was attached to the secondary air butterfly. not bad for the first day starting to go through the new RV.....

Looks like I have some work to do on the old 76 Travco.

Measured up all the windows for new day night shades. Out with the mini blind dust collectors. Also cleaning out mouse nests in overheads. Found how they get in and gonna block out with expanding foam.

I have found that I soak them (Mini blinds) in the laundry tub with bleach and a couple shots of Dawn let them soak over night and then rinse off the next morning and they look like new.
Sorry too hear you have mice I use Fabric sheets (I know they don't work) but in 5 years I have yet to see any evidence of the critters.

Some mice like the softness on their nest and smell of the NEW "Bounce Fresh Scent" sheets.

Cummins B5.9 gauges

Installed gauges on Cummins B5.9 12 valve mechanical. Came with no gauges, installed exhaust gas temp, turbo boost gauge, and trans temp gauge. Bought from Glowshift with gauge pod. Connections from engine to dash were about 40 feet long! Have not had chance to run on highway with new gauges, so do not yet know what range on gauges will be.
