|LCAC_Man #1027 LBZ Duramax Conversion|
|Author: LCAC_Man (Show all albums)|
This album will cover the Duramax/Allison conversion(including dash cluster integration), installation of airbags to assist suspension, conversion of vacuum brakes to Hydroboost, replacement of Onan gas generator with a Onan/Cummins 5500LP, inverter/charger installation, dual roof a/c installation, and Bedroom reconfiguration that will add "pass-thru" storage.
fans are as high as they can be and still be removable with the generator in place, I had to notch the corners of the shroud to allow clearance for the intercooler tube connections
after finally getting a satisfactory air test I installed slide in retainer angles for the new heavy duty filter
squared up the opening and welded in new close out angles
cut the plywood back enough that I could fold the sheet metal up around it, this will protect the wood floor and add some rigidity.
then added aluminum close out flange angles over that
result will be an indexing flange on the interior for the new cover to key on
new trans/rear engine access cover at about 90%
new access cover installed, I'll through drill and the fasteners will compress/sandwich to the close out flange on the outside
new cover from the engine bay view
Turbo back from rebuild and looking like new. I used Turbo Depot & Performance Patrick Wood 462 Riverview St. Canal Fulton, OH, 44614 $375 including shipping both directions.
fabricated and installed new floor brace(from some left over material I had on hand) 3/16" x 1.5", it ties into the new access cover mounting flange and resulted in the floor in the bedroom being more rigid now than it was before I cut the hole.
kind of hard to make out but you can see that I cut the brake lines that had gone back to the rear vacuum boost unit and installed and elbow and tied them together. Hydroboost unit will be installed up front and provide pressure assisted supply from there.
