Drivetrain Conversion

hello, new tp rv ing, experienced in farm equipment and diesels. I am not sure if I am posting in the appropriate forum, I am interested in pulling the drivetrain out of a 1988 fleetwood bounder with a 454 gas and replacing with a Ford Diesel of some year. Before I go On please advise if this is the appropriate place to post?

Sounds like you are taking on a fun project.

Lots of people on these forums are into modifications. Not so many this big, but believe me, there will be lots of interest and help, I'm sure.

Good luck, and have fun!

HDT = Heavy Duty (Class 8) Truck - as in a Tandem "Tractor" like a Volvo, Pete, Freightshaker, etc.
Often "singled" to one axle with dual wheels (like a dually pickup) - to tow anything you can put behind it - like a large & heavy 5th wheel trlr.

IMO - you need to go to one of the Motor Home Forums.
