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?

Victoria Lynn has posted on the AACA forum about her grandfather writing Ultavan technical bullitens back in the 70s 80s.

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.

No need for a holder Hey Tom. Thank you for the input. I'm not sure what model you are talking about. I looked at some and they cost $275USD and up... That is a little bit much for a heat gun whil

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?)

Is there anyone in the Duluth area that is interested in owning an Ultra Van cheap? There is a fixer in Duluth that deserves to be saved and I'm having a hard time getting to it. I live in Washington and it is a matter of time and distance for me. If you would like to own an Ultra Van and aren't afraid of some work this project might be for you. PM me or email me at carlofsumner@gmail.com and I c

FYI - IF an asking price was given at time when Owen spoke with the owner about posting the ad - on the Ultravan site - Owen would have posted it. Otherwise the owner / seller did not provide Owen that information at the time.
