Build ultra van garage first and put Marie’s car in it this winter. Then next year if funds allow build the lean to for her car. If not enough cash for all that this year maybe hold off on concrete for ultra van garage?

I don't need an architect for a simple pole barn build. And land owners can submit there own drawings to get a permit. Like I started in my first post. I just need to figure out the correct angle to place the new build or poles. But with my head injury - I'm finding it extremely harder to figure more and more things out as time goes one. NOTE: The portable garage is in place at one a

That's a rebranded Rostra. The one I used works well on my Malibu but I used the electronic not the cable version. I have another waiting to be installed on my Ultravan.

Have lots of interior panels, cabinets and doors,and other stuff from gutting several Ultravans over the years (hey, it wasn't MY idea to completely gut them) Storage for years is over, so out it all goes. Sadly, it is all destined for the trash if SOMEONE does not save it!(cherrywood formica) all is free, must pickup here in oregon thanks! craig lamond UV 001

It sounds like it will be a while but I hope you will follow up with how it performs. Jim Davis with the Ultra Vans had some definite opinions on cam timing with a Powerglide and aiming for best torque at a given RPM. He's sold his Ultra Van but still has other Corvairs and has a wealth of knowledge. Jim Brandberg Isanti, MN CorvairRepair.com

Don't forget Ultravans. Of course they are automatics so they use a different shaft but the shaft does seem to be the most common point of failure for the transaxle which supports the load theory.

So a '78 is modern? The GMC is cool but it weighs a ton, is huge compared to an Ultra and uses about 3x the fuel. Ultras have great support not like the GMC but then I doubt any other motorhome does.

That's why the make chocolate and vanilla. They were neat in the day, but for the kind of time and money you can put into one of these you can buy a REAL used RV. One that you can use to take your family out on comfortable trips and see our great country instead of working on something that you may never get on the road. We now have put more than 100K miles on big block motorhomes, the only st

I hope it's not a situation where the owner passed away and the family wants to get rid of it.If it isn't the owner would have done better to tell everyone more about it and like was already said some cleaning up would have been great! Also more pictures, but I guess people coming to the auction will find all Tha out.

I like these 3V560 wrapped belts from VBeltSupply.com at $4.85 each. Last time I bought them, I bought 10 which should keep me going for a while :). I replace the belt once a year in our UltraVan because of the wear/tear it gets from charging and because I don't feel like replacing it by the side on the road on a trip :). They work great. 3V560 Wrapped Belt

It could be. But it is not the normal wedding cake style. Phil do you have 2 of them? If so I would be interested - just because they are different. Maybe Owen will chime in.
