I have had the blower unit in my 1985 96A3 out.  I did not require any interior access to the bolts holding the blower gear box in place.  Do a professional job on the fix as you'll never need access again.  My 2 cents on the subject...

If the Original Poster or anyone else is interested in an HDT puller for a fifth wheel, here is the site.  It is an extremely high traffic site, the most posts of all the Escapees topics that I know.  The people on this site are very knowledgeable and are most helpful, just like this site but relating to HDT's being used for recreational use or commercial use as the OP is suggesting he would license his unit.

That will work for sure  Grin

As long as the hitch on your bus can handle the hitch weight.

NAME?? -

Consider this option: A Kenworth or Peterbilt truck tractor with an extended sleeper.  Behind that, a standard 5th wheel plate that you could tow an RV-style fifth-wheel toy hauler with your display inside, rather than an RV interior, plus room for the Mini or Smart car.  Being in the heart of RV builders, I'm sure you could have a fifth-wheel easily built to your specs.

Great for the commercial aspect of the want...kinda sucks for the recreational part Smiley

As virtually every coach I have considered will not be able to legally haul even a mini cooper on a tow bar the entire project is going to need to change or perhaps be cancelled.

How physically big is it?  We can't tell.  Estimated capacity?  Any physical hints to as what it may do?  Actual location?

A comparison?  Back in about 1970 my daily driver school bus had a SW mechanical turbo boost gage.  1963 Crown Supercoach 40 foot 10 wheeler.  Went up and down the Grape Vine Ridge Route every school day.  The mill was a 220 743 T Cummings slightly stepped up.  Ran about 10 pounds boost.

The shops had some issues with oil leaks.  Also the OP, tack and speedo were SW mechanical gages with the long encased cables spinning.  Long runs and twists to the dash board.  The mechanical gages created headaches for the mechanics.  A oil seep shop rag was engine space dedicated to clean up.

Everything seeped or slightly leaked oil and grease.
