andy1canada FOR SALE: 22.5" ALCOA'S & COMPLETE DISK-BRAKE KIT FOR FMC (26 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2022-06-12) If someone steps up - I will part with these. The sale is for the wheels and brakes. I have some other stuff I'd also part with ( A-arms, spindles and stubby shafts for the Rockwell. see pics) but I need to confirm fitment.
Going to give this another try as my first attempt didn't go so well on the 'Diner-conversion' thread (Will update/edit that soon).
Started my Cummins swap by pulling off the bumper; only took better part of an hour. That sucker is HEAVY! Better part of a 100 lbs I bet. Will be looking to knock substantial weight off that baby while still retaining a 5000 lb towing standard.
This will take a while as it will unfold as time and resources permit, so please be patient.
More pics and hopefully some videos (FMC-TV) to follow.
borrmann Hub caps (9 Photos, 0 Comments : Last updated 2022-05-30) I wanted to add axle covers/hubcaps to dress up the appearance of the coach. Didn't want to spend a lot of money so I used some caps that I had sitting around. I did purchase chromed steel caps for the front.
andy1canada FMC LED Tail Light Swap #846 (14 Photos, 1 Comment : Last updated 2022-05-22) This is a continuation of the work started by my Friend, Dale Maggio, about 10 yrs ago just before I bought #509 from him down in Santa Cruz.
In a box of parts he included with the coach I found some pedestal style LED truck lights. He told me he was in the midst of converting the tail lights to LED but had no time to complete it. After checking out the parts - and having been less than happy with replacing a continuous stream of rear tail light bulbs - I decided to take a serious look at what Dale had in mind. Turns out the guy is freakin' - brilliant!
This is the route I went to get this done.
