Fenders are bolted to a fixed and welded apron. Rear quarters are welded in place. Floors and truck pan are welded in. Doors will unbolt of course, as will the hood and deck. This is unibody construction. DIp strip requires a lot of time on these cars.

SOURCE: remove body from chassis

To remove the body from the chassis you need to unbolt the body mount bolts, disconnect all linkages such as throttle, shift, etc., electrical connections and wiring harnesses, brake, fuel and emission lines, heater hoses and AC lines, and lift the body straight up off the frame. You almost have to have access to a car hoist to do this, and to do the job succesfully requires a pretty high level of mechanical aptitude.

Well, that's it ...but if you really have to ask how, you might need to hire some qualified help such as a body and frame repair shop.

Looking for a 78 dodge motorhome manual


You may be able to locate one in a used bookstore- online or bricks and mortar. Anything common to the truck body, frame, suspension engine and driveline, are going to be the same as the conventional counter parts. 1977 and 1976 data should be comparable. 1978 was the year they got the bailout and 1979 models were pared back considerably to just the 1 ton and smaller trucks.

Essentially what you will want to look for is Chassis Cab truck manual for the series you have- 200/250, 300,400, 1976 through 1978 and it will give you the breakdown of everything truck/automotive. It is highly likely the company that put the motorhome body on the chassis went out of business, so you are not going to find topics on body sheet replacement, refrigerator setup or stove setup. Those you can look at modern appliances and make accurate inferences on the installation. Water heaters have changed since 78, so information on the older tanks will be similar to what a home installation would be.

Details on the gas pressure are going to be the same as they were, and that data should be found on the refrigerator, the heater, and possibly the water heater, and once in a while near the tanks themselves.

How do i set timing on a 1977 mg midget without a timing lite


Perfect timing for fuel efficiency and power is 3 degrees before it causes audible valve ping or knock when the engine is hot and under full acceleration up a hill. To get close with the distrib, advance it (turn it) from a retarded position at 2500 rpm until smooth running gives way to slight kicking. You will feel and hear it. Lock it down and road test, listening for the valve knock. Backfire is more associated with retarded timing.

MGB GT HEATER BOX REMOVAL


Have you removed the cable from the air direction control on the dash? You have to pull the cable out with the heater unit, and that means bending it through quite a severe angle, which means tugging on the heater unit. There is also a rubber block on the back of the heater unit at the bottom which fills the space between the heater unit and the bulkhead which also makes it harder to lift out (but even harder to get back with a new block!). Other than that it is 'just' a matter of pulling it up and leaning the top forwards to clear the body above it. For a pictorial blow-by-blow of removal and replacement see http://www.chicagolandmgclub.com/photos/b_heater/
