|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 drivers side mount, still needs gussets added. This is all new structure
will fabricate the rest of the engine mount cradle tomorrow, it will become a full cross-member.
new crossmember tie in at passenger side mount, running low on welding gas so finish welding will happen later, I'll also be boxing in the open area below the factory gm engine mount tower
new crossmember drivers side tie in
cross over straight across the bottom of the engine at the highest part of the oil pan
still 1/2" clearance
just enough room to get the rear sump of the oil pan off if needed
repurposing the original transmission cross-member
drivers side was pretty easy as there wasn't much interference
passenger side required further roll back of the electrical and plumbing which took entirely too long..
fabricated my own transmission mount bracket based on pic's from Stephen's and some others one line. I couldn't bring myself to pay $70 for it.
3" square tube drop down structure, same width as the frame rails and same as the new engine cross-member
