    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks again. Next up is to buy a vacuum gauge, that page is very informative. You're probably right with the vacuum leak or some sort of vacuum problem. When I put the new carb on I had to eliminate some of the vacuum lines as the old carb had two fuel bowl vents and the newer carb didn't...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks! I probably should have combined the EGR thread with this one. Sorry! I thought that was a separate issue.

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks Donn. I was hoping since it had relatively low mileage for the year, 50,000 miles, that maybe the timing chain wouldn't be the issue. But I'll look into it! Would that cause both low idle and high idle ? I've read a worn chain can cause a rough idle. I should have mentioned too that the...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Hoping there are a few people left on this thread that can help me out one last time! After two years I've fixed most of the problems I was having. Went on a 2000 km trip this past summer and the thing pretty much ran great with lots of power but still having a confusing problem at idle. Just to...

    1987 Ford E350 Corsair EGR Question ?

    Hi all, Thought I'd try this forum again as in the past I got some super helpful info from members. Awhile back I was having some issues with my RV, mainly with lack of power and some other performance issues. The list of things i did was: - first a compression check, 125 psi all across the...

    1987 Ford E350 Class C Motorhome Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

    Good call, I hate doing any work on these things cause it's such a small space to work in so probably starting with the simplest thing is a smart play. Thanks!

    1987 Ford E350 Class C Motorhome Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

    Hi all, Found this forum super helpful in the past so thought I'd try again to see if any one has done this repair. I have a small oil leak at the back passenger side valve cover which is dripping a bit of oil on the exhaust. Seems to only happen when the RV hasn't been started in awhile and...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    You're definitely bang on with the big block in a tiny space! It's so tough to find and see anything. The choke, even though not the main problem, is a head scratcher, after I posted I went out to start it cold and it was snapped shut. Started it up and watched it slowly open while it warmed up...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    So its finally gotten warm enough to get the RV uncovered and start looking into this problem. The first thing I noticed is that the carb choke isn't closed when cold, its basically just fully open all the time. It's getting voltage at the electric choke. You can move the carb choke by hand very...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks, that was my first thought, that the choke was stuck open because it would explain a few of those symptoms. It is the electric choke I believe so I'll try tracing all the vacuum lines and then checking the choke...hopefully its as simple as one of those problems, a lot less expensive then...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks again! Yea I thought the high idle was just the choke not kicking off, but maybe it's just been set really high by the previous owner....I'll have to check that out too.

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Thanks for all the replies, I can't believe I forgot the engine and type of carb, that would probably be helpful when asking for advice. It's the 460 engine with the Holley 4180 carb, four barrel. I did a visual look for vacuum leaks but I suspect its not something I could even see. I believe I...

    1987 Ford Corsair Carb Problem ?

    Hi, Hoping someone out there might have a few ideas about the issues I'm having with this motorhome. The symptoms are: - high idle, won't kick down when warm - some times it diesels after shutting it off - lack of power up any hills - transmission won't kick down when you step on it - off the...

    RM2600 not working properly

    Thanks Bruce, I did try contacting Dometic and the response I got was that they don't offer technical support and to take it in to a service centre to be diagnosed..which would probably cost more than the three parts I think it could be. But there definitely is some RV repair guys on kijiji in...

    RM2600 not working properly

    Thanks! Yea its funny cause its such a simple set up, no real circuit boards or electronics but there is really no information any where on them in terms of trouble shooting.....probably a guy should just buy a new one to avoid any further problems...but I'll try a couple parts here first and...
