    Moog CC880S coils

    Come to think of it, that was the case for both my ‘97 front end & my ‘01 front end with OEM coils. I mixed and matched front end components and have never removed the bell retainer. The Moog coils were no different...in that regard.

    Moog CC880S coils

    Both my OEM coils and the 880s would lift off the retainer if tipped to the right angle... but otherwise they stay in place. The fit was the same as stock.

    Keep us posted on how the batteries work out... G/C are working, but I may win the lottery if I’m given a ticket (or have saved enough not buying them). :D

    Hello from germany!

    @Weldtec Designs has done a lot with these vans... thoughts for a member in Germany? I’m not familiar with Chevy... Econoline would be a different story.

    AmboLander

    Saginaw pump pressure output on P/S conversions can be altered. Too much pressure and all road feel is lost vs too little and hard steering. There’s a spring and rod which control it... Likely similar for our steering. Too much pressure and steering boxes will eventually sufffer with big tires.

    Any boat shop that repairs fibreglass boats would be able to repair the body. Fibreglass is easier to repair than steel.

    I’m sure Dave will reply. From what I’ve read it’s very doable with a large cherry picker. It is a huge job as it requires stripping everything out of the front of the van that can be removed. I believe time is the most major factor. I’ve not pulled a 7.3, however, I’ve had all of the grill...

    Excellent my friend. We’ll have to meet up again soon. My build is going slowly... much like molasses at this time of year. I’ve got three sheets of 1/8” HDPE (High density Polyethylene) to replace the damaged plastic on my left interior... was given it this summer, and just haven’t had time to...

    If there’s an unwanted 60” grab bar, I’m still looking for one. Otherwise I’ll have to buy some stainless wire and build one out of the grab bars I’ve got laying around.

    Ambulance Camper/ Expedition Rig Conversion FAQ

    Question: Why has my Airbag light decided to turn on? After some research I thought I'd share my answer/solution. The Airbag light on indicates a fault and that the Airbags are disabled. In some cases the light will flash out a code which can relate to the fault, My '97 didn't provide any...

    Private sale of 'used' batteries... a tree came down onto their trailer and totaled it. They had only been out three times since they converted to the Interstate GC2 batteries. Costco south of the 49th have Interstate Batteries for a decent price... North of the 49th only Kirkland (which some...

    The second starting battery on the frame rail isn’t too bad to access. It helps that it’s OEM and planned out, not just thrown in there. 6V are about $120 usd each. There not terrible. I paid about $90 for a pair that were like new. A TRUECHARGE microprocessor controlled will keep them healthy...

    I’ve got a ‘97 With a 7.3. If your module has space I’d recommend swapping your two batteries in if for two 6V golf cart batteries. They are about 10” tall. I’d then install a srock battery box on the passenger side frame rail for a second starting battery. Originally E350s came with one...

    Favor needed, anyone with a Vanagon or Eurovan Westy?
