If you like DIY projects, you have a good one.

This is officially vintage. I would not touch it with a 10 foot pole, but if yours is 11, and you are game, I wish you good luck and Happy Trails.

First off....if you're going to DIY, you have about the easiest rig to work on (coming from someone that has both a 77 Dodge Sportsman RV as well as a 2000s Class A). 318, 360, and 440 are pretty much bulletproof engines, and the 727 automatic is bombproof. Is there anything at all getting power?
