Ok, after some time to mull over the advice given here on my earlier posts, I have decided to find a different coach to convert. I have setteled on a 40' newlook with a V730 and power steering and most likely a 6v71. A1 salvage has lots of T6H5307N's for sale that seem perfect. I'd like a coach with an 8v71, but so far the only one I have seen was the one on ebay last month, and TomC pointed out that it had a higher floor that reduced the headroom to 6'1"- not enough for us. The 6'10" in the regular newlooks is a might tight.
That gives me the added room we're looking for, a trans that will provide a bit better drivability, and power steering so my wife can actually park it. And it's still a newlook! (thats a good thing btw
I have googled this, and come up with nothing helpful. Almost all my mechanics ability is automotive, and there is lots of info, and personal experience, to help me know what fits where from what, and there is the ultra-handy Hollinder Interchange Manual. Anything like it for the newlooks?
Anyhow, with all that said, Here is my question.
Where can I get reliable info on interchangability of the parts on my 1966 with other coaches, like the T6H5307N?
I'm hoping to use it as a parts donor.
Also, who is a good one to talk with about traiding 2 6v71's (both running good) for a good running 8v71? I'm thinking that may be the only way I'll get a newlook with an 8v71 in it.
