Ditto Monza66mo and rnch comments. I have one "collector" vehicle at a time, it's more than enough $$$ and time. I'm so far under water valuation wise on my '68 Coupe de 'Vair, I'm down with the whale feces. My motto is "if it ain't broke, fix it anyway." Also have an overwhelming tendency to gold plate, or in the latest instance, Cosmichrome. I've noticed at various "Cars and Coffee" even

FC gas heater would not have been factory installed. Any pictures that I have seen of the first Ultravan have never had a heater and/or heater controls under the dash. Even though the FC cables would be longer than the car unit - it still would not be long enough to use (as stock) in an Ultravan. Also, how would one route so many cables?

thanks for the helpful info. I may or may not use it as I don't know what heater, if any was in the first ultravan, as he may have just used engine heat as there were two round holes, now covered over by others,in the rear bed area bulkhead. 001 was completed in 1961, so could have had 61 shrouds, for heat, installed. I am still searching for any info or drawings/pictures of when it was first b

I just checked my "pile o'gas heater parts" and unfortunately I do not have a workable gas heater control. In looking at what I have, I'm reminded that each cable and knob assembly is made as a unit and not adjustable or changeable. Cable lengths for FC are different than car cable lengths. While the chrome bases are identical between car and FC, all of the cable lengths are specific to th

I'm sorry. That is a hideous whale. The most unorthodox RV my eyes have ever seen. I'm physically repulsed by the image before me. TMI?

OK, I think we understand your goal! Excellent solution for a badly designed Headlight circuit!! :)-D Now tell us "what" you want the "label" to say.

This is for those who are curious and those who can't seem to answer simple question(s), i.e. where to buy XYZ or who offers ABC services, without knowing what someone is up to. GGG & LOL (Yes I'm being funny - So don't take it so seriously.) FYI - Ultravans like most vehicles have some issues. Things that were not designed well as they should have been. Wiring on an Ultravan is a joke

For those on that forum that didn't know what an ultravan is, you could mention the movie "My Girl" with Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis. They may have seen one and didn't know it.

BTW, one can join the AACA forum withOUT being an AACA member. So Ultravan owners can post their pictures and answer the questions on there. Owen?

My questions: (1) Should I replace it? (2) Is graphite the way to go? How long should these last? (3) Will I have a whale of a time getting the double nuts off of the studs to disassemble? Should I replace the studs and nuts with the stainless/brass combo that Clark's offers? (4) Will I have to loosen any other connections in the exhaust path to facilitate disassembly and re-assembly?

Poking around under my 1966 140hp and saw the exhaust packing between the manifold and the exhaust pipe that looked like this: Looks like not much of it is left.

Parts are available to fix this! Carl Jones, UV#400 knows where a front fiberglass roof section and inside ceiling cabinet are as well as the windshields. Looks horrible, but is quite fixable, IMHO. I've told Carl about this post and he will be along later to say more about it. Heckuva deal for a repairable Ultra Van, IMHO! Save the Whale!!

I love those things. So sad to see another circling the drain. Doubtful anyone will take on such a huge project but hopefully some of the parts are saved. There seem to be a few Ultra Vans for sale lately that are a complete mess.

Good info Frank. Thank you. Currently I plan on making these new harnesses for just myself band our Ultravans. And only if others want one will I make them. With the above said, I thought I start off with a less expensive unit and I could always up grade if and when needed.. FYI - I was looking at a 2 speed Black and Decker HG1300-Heat Gun for under $30 Canadian and I can get it local

Carl, What number coach is it? Why is it not posted on the Yahoo Ultravan group Site? What is the price for what you are selling? (Didn't you do the same to me - why is it different for you?)
