    Isn't it just satisfying when a plan comes to fruition and things just work.

    Silly things like getting replacement parts for a 30 year old RV that I could not possibly dreamed about getting a year or so ago.

    Suddenly you come across a supplier while surfing the web.MAGIC.

    Little things like I Fitted a set of barrel clips last night and sorted out all those cupboard doors that wouldn't stay closed.Door and ignition locks.Light switches.The small stuff that really makes a difference.

    New sets of rear and front light clusters.

    Have just sourced original fitting Water fillers.:Cool: and petrol locker door.

    The list goes on and on.

    She's starting to come together now and looking good.

    Just get that Feel-good feeling when these parts turn up and I'm another step closer to how I want it to finish up.:BigGrin:

    Hi Stumpy,

    I tend to source most bits direct from the States as they tend to be cheaper, even taking into account Carriage, than UK Sourcing.

    Depends on the rate of Exchange though, which is not Favourable at the moment.:Sad:

    And the weight and size of the item.

    What were you after?

    I'll try to post later.:thumb:

    Hi Stumpy

    Our very own Lindy-Con this forum from Stateside Services is likely to be able to source all your requirements AND ship them at very competitive rates. Many RVers rate her service the best of the best :thumb:

    Well its running a 2 barrel holly with factory fitted lpg twin 90ltr tanks ,but its running very rough on petrol.My mate who is a hot rodder has said to replace the 2 barrel with a 4 barrel to let the engine run better with pretty much the same mpg (with out booting it :Wink:)but it all needs setting up correctly lpg and petrol.Oh its a 360 mopah 5.8 v8

    Mine's running a 4 barrel Carter at the moment.Apart from not liking Unleaded Low octane Petrol she runs fine with Octane booster added.

    I am thinking in time of replacing the Carter with a 4 Barrel Holley.It's just a matter of finding someone locally who can set it up (Jetting Etc) to run properly.

    Plus I've got an LPG Kit to go on it .

    The Mopar Lumps are pretty solid motors and it seems you can get most parts for them.

    I tend to use Rock Autos for bits.

    What CFM Rating is the carb?She'll certainly breathe and perform better with a 4-Barrel.:Cool:

    The prices were very competitive and an asset to the site.:BigGrin:Just hope the current exchange rate changes for the better soon.:Sad:

    Stuff from the US will be seriously affected otherwise, especially on larger objects like importing RV's.:Doh:
