Hi, I just purchased a used '87 Shasta with a ford 7.5L engine.

I am not familiar with your specific configuration; motor homes are pretty much unique builds, but if the belt is a flat serpentine type and it is pretty much shredding along one side and then breaking or jumping of the guides, then I would look carefully at the harmonic balancer on the crankshaft pulley. The outer ring (where the belt runs) on these is slipped over a rubber insert that holds them in place. Over time, this rubber ages, hardens, and can shrink. The outer ring will then slide inward or outward, throwing the belt path out of alignment. Eventually the outer ring will often fly off, and this can cause additional damage. If you notice this, you need a new harmonic balancer.

Why is the harmonic balance eating into the timing cover?

On most vehicles today, the crankshaft pulley acts as the harmonic balancer. It also has the grooved outer ring that the serpentine belt rides on. Between the central hub of the balancer and the outer ring is a strip of rubber that the outer ring is pressed onto. This rubber, over time, ages and shrinks. This allow the outer ring to walk inward (or outward) of the centerline of the pulley. This causes the serpentine belt to wear out prematurely and can cause the problem you describe. You need a new harmonic balancer. It comes complete with the rubber and outer ring already attached. Check your belt at the same time to see if it needs replaced as well.

Passport 1994 model refuses to accelerate, moves very slowly after the first 100km of my trip

I just read a rather lengthy dissertation from some other frustrated owner with the same kind of problem. He had 2 causes: The first was low fuel pressure that a new pump fixed. The other was the harmonic balancer (on front of engine, bottom pulley of timing belt). It has a metal inner and outer ring with rubber sandwiched in between. For some reason the rubber had gotten hot and allowed the outer ring (cam timing) to move compared to the inner ring (crank timing). Once the balancer cooled down, the rubber seemed solid again. The timing mark on the outer ring should line up with the key slot on the inner ring.

How do I remove my manually locking hubs from my 79 4x4 f150

Get an allen wrench that fits the recessed bolt heads in the outer ring of the hub. Insert the wrench and turn counterclockwise until removed. When all are out pull on the outer ring of the hub and that part will separate from the hub. If you wish to remove further then you will need to remove a small phillips head screw from an aluminum ring and then get a pick tool to run along the inside of the hub to remove a spring wire out of a groove and the rest of the hub will remove. Then all you have left is the axle nuts to remove. There will be an outer locking nut then a locking ring that lines up with a dowel on another ring. Remove those and there will be one more nut to remove and then the outer bearing will come out of the hub and you can remove the rotor and then the inner bearing and wheel seal.

What holds a passengers side drive shaft in on the front differential of a 2000 suzuki ventura?

The attached hub and bearing when installed keeps everything together. After removing all items from the axle outer end the inner shaft is locked in by a c ring. It simply snaps in and the same upon removing the shaft. The c ring will stay on the shaft when taking the axle shaft out
