|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.
New spare tire cover,made by the Holland Bar Stool Company. Fits great and hopefully will last a few years in the SoCal sun..
Lower tank leaked immediately on getting filled, discovered that good old RVS strikes again and had covered the drain port when re-insulating the under floor and installing new belly pans...would have been nice if they had fully tightened the plug in the bottom of the tank..I've got a temp drain in there now.
so after getting the lower tank tight all hell broke loose on the upper tank..
I had no idea the tank vent ran into the wall..??
upper tank removed so that I could dry the area and assess the damage..
not an "off the shelf" tank..
the small upper vent fitting is the only one that isn't cracked..
All three of the 1 1/4" fittings are split just like this.
And then there's a 3" long vertical crack on the forward side of the tank.
figured I might as well do some good, cleaned up the floor panel and put down some POR-15. Got a couple spots where the carpet glue needed to be cleaned better so I'll acetone wipe and touch those in tomorrow
My local plastics shop (MGM Plastics, San Marcos, CA.) was able to repair my upper water storage tank. This is the new forward inlet fitting.
New rear outlet (to the lower tank) fitting.
