Looks good, Goreds!

I bought some electrical stuff for projects and setup a timer on the fridge to see if turning it off at times and then back on will help to control runaway cooling.

Changed the spark plug and air filter on the Onan 2800 LP generator under my 2007 Great West Sprinter.

Runs much better. Filter wasn't bad. but the spark plug gap had not been set correctly. Old plug .027 new plug at the correct .020.

Little things can make a huge difference.

New things to install for the classic 1977 Dodge B:

New Seaflo water pump and a Security system with door alarms and motion sensor alarm!

New Security System

40 year old pump that finally got too old- still makes noise, but I'd guess the seals are shot- sure it could be rebuilt and probably go another 40!

So I installed the new pump enough to test it and it works great, but sadly I have acrack in the old plastic piping that goes under the van.

When the van was plumbed they drilled out a large hole to pass piping through and then cut the pipe and put an small elbow insert and attached the other end of the pipe that ran to the faucet and sink.

I figure I will need to cut the old section out and get a new connector and new joint to attach everything up so probably this weekend for the fix. In the meanwhile I will study and wire up the Security System!

My wife and I took ours for its every 6 weeks "get the rust off the brakes" drive. Added a touch of biocide and a gallon of diesel to wash it down the fuel line. Our neighbor begged a ride and loved it. Also ran the genset under load for 15 minutes. Gotta keep it in shape!

Fixed the left blinker, fixed a leak in the house plumbing and fully installed the new Seaflo 3 GPM pump, changed the windshield wipers and setup an alarm system for installation tomorrow when it is cooler out!

Yesterday, I ran the rooftop air for about 2 hours as it had not ran for a year. It did great and cooled well.

Also took it to a mechanic down the road to have the driver side power window checked.

He is also investigating why the dash air is not cooling.

Fingers crossed!

I took mine flying. Radio control flying that is, my hobby [emoticon] Was also a good day to give the generator a good work out, ran it with the AC for about 4 hours and used it as a cooling off spot between flights.

goreds2,
I'm taking my 1997 Xplorer in today for the dash AC. It has had a slow leak for years, but I would fill the Freon with 2 cans for about $10 with the kit I have, and it would run all summer. I just had to do it every spring. But this year I've done it 3 times & needs it again. So the leak has gotten worse. I hope this shop, which has done good engine work on it, can find and fix the problem. I'm willing to replace the entire system if parts can be found even if it cost thousands. The price doesn't matter when I plan to keep it for a long time.
