Terry-
What you lack in spelling, you certainly make up for with your incredible RV resurrection.


It was a pleasure scrolling through your post and seeing your progress.


I just wish I could help with the 8.1 information.




Brett Michaels of "Rock My RV" (the TV show) would do very well offering you a job. Your abilities amaze me.
Common sense to many of us is, unfortunately, the higher education some strive to attain.

well made it

the rv set for all most  9 months  so i was hoping nothing would pop up today 

1joester2   thanks  for the pat on the back  and every one else     i need it over my spelling and just life at the min its hard to keep the feeling up 

i am 33 years old M and wish my spelling was batter

i am a good man and can do big and good things with my hands but there still alot to hold one back in life

but on the good side  thanks again to some good info i got  i can now start the install of the 8.1  so starting next month i think i well start on that if every thing looks good

here in FL when the rain stops i well start  working again and add pics as i go

Hey Terry, I made it over here.  I'll see what I an do about the TCM/ECM TAC stuff.
Are you sure its a 2004 Allison?  What is the trans out of?  What engine was in front of it stock? 

I ask because there was a few years where there wasn't a 6 speed Allison available in the GM trucks, only a 5 speed Allison.  We have to set this beast up using the parts from where the trans came from, not what you want it to be like.  If the trans is from a 1 ton Suburban, you dont want to set it up like a gas pusher. 


I realize that you have a 2006 wiring diagram , Workhorse R26 UFO Chassis 81L 2006, but we need to know exactly what Allison transmission you have sitting there.  What vehicle did it come out of? You said the VIN was 1F6NF53Y560) the "0" signifies a 2006 vehicle, but then you said you were lied to and it might be might be from a 2004 1/2?

Are your 8.1 engine and Allison trans from different vehicles?  We can control the 8.1 easy enough, it will run using any 1999-2007 PCM/ECM so long as we use the 24 x crank signal and 1x camshaft signal from the 8.1 and send it to the ECM?PCM.
The tricky part is sending the correct info from the ECM to the TCM, that's why we need to know exactly whaty the trans is.

OK I gotta take a break, supper time for me up here.  Been at this for 5 hours now.

I'll check in later.

peace
Hog

well  hog was a very very good guy that know his stuff   got me all the info on the TCM/ECM 


so over the last 2 months  i have not got as fare as i would like too  as i am saving cash up for the motor parts i need  so its been small things here and there as i can

the P side windshield was pulled out and reinstalled  so its not falling out any more     now just need a new drive side windshield

got a lot more of the roof in  and started to play with some cabinet work

it is hard to tell but the center of the roof is head liner and you can see wight paint on the side it all looks the same
but now its starting to look like some thing inside

had to move the lights around to get some good pics

installed more head liner  drive side   more work in the cabinets on the top there  and started on the pass side  over door   as you can see the blue block is where the solar charge controller is going    right next to where most of the info centers go   

the bigger box in the roof is where the roof fan is going      .....    giving how high my roof is  i am looking at just one type of fan to install   its around 380$ or some thing 
sorry for get the name of it   but it has the panel that you can install on the wall to make it open  and has the top on it that can be open in the rain  and fold down out of the way

all so with the big box you see a smaller box next to it    thats to suck air from the fan out  of that hole to out side or push air in

i have to make a big center pice  that is going to run along way up and down the rv   to pull that hot air out of the roof        fan well have a door on it  with a flap so i can take air and make it move any way i want     for them nights with out  AC  in no where land

OMG!

You are a visionary, and a VERY talented person.
When I first saw those before pictures, I had a panic attack.
I'm mechanically inclined, and fix most anything, but I wouldn't have known where to begin on this project.

Best of luck.

sorry guys know i have been postting smaller news  some where else  on here so i well add  what some may have not seen 

its been a few months   working  on and off  over the bad weather we have had

pulled the older GM 350 / TH 400 out  sold it for 300$  nice guy came  out and help me pull it   .. so its not going in his hot rod car

started to drop the 8.1l in there and found  it did need some work 
so that put me back a few months

its now in there with the allison 1000 MH

started on wiring and fuel system  motor mounts  and more

i was all so pushed back on the exhaust system and the flags  where hard to find  was 3 months of looking to find the right parts

but the exhaust is now in and ready to go   but i again i wanted to go with the truck exhaust so the tran mounting had to be made in a way to stay out of the way   

power steering pump was all so a fun one   again wanted to stay with the truck setup as i all ready had a high flow unit
i had to edit the pulley to make it work  flip it around  and install it back word
doing this would give me room for the air pump for the brakes  i well install latter a tu-flo 550  that was used on the 8.1l

I was going to say that's an interesting hydraulic footing you have there. Must get lots of comments at campgrounds.  :P

Did the smoke smell from the fire clear up? 

Talked to some repair people that fix houses after a fire and they said it is pretty tough to get all the burn smell out.
