Sounds good Jack,

That is something I will have to do someday I'm sure. Until then we'll just pray a lot! Grin

  Jack,

  If you post updates of the swap like Brian did, everyone will be looking forward to it!  Good luck!

Jack,
 You might consider replacing your coolant hoses, powersteering hoses, and fuel lines at the same time....

These were all changed  a couple years ago.  They swap is planned to start on 1/26 after we return from the big Bluegrass festival at YeeHaw Junction.  Jack

Hello Jack,

I'm sure you'll already know, I'm posting the thought for the learners.... remember to dump the air suspension, or she'll pick her skirts up in concert with your attempts to raise the drivetrain....

Or, some take advantage of the air suspension, using it to help with the job of getting the drivetrain and dolly out from under the coach...

I like your economical/practical engine swap choice!

happy coaching!
