LeSharo Help and News Greg 1-7-03  
Hello All,

If any Winnebago LeSharo owners (or potential owners) require technical assistance, good used parts or any of our LeSharo options please contact us @: or visit our new website;

We are the company that converts the LeSharo, Phasar and Centauri to Chrysler power. We are now taking a survey at the website regarding any owner’s interest in a DIY “Component Package” to convert a LeSharo to Chrysler power. If you may be interested in doing the conversion yourself please take a minute to fill out the survey. If there is a great enough interest we will begin producing the “Kits”.

We also have LeSharos for sale, many new options and used parts available.

I’ll have pictures of our custom “Harley Hauler” posted soon. Part motorcoach, Part garage with storage, ramps, bed, microwave and porta-potty. Completely secure and insulated. The “Harley Hauler” is one slick unit. We can also build custom commercial vehicles out of the Winnebago Utility Van to meet your needs.

Let us know if we can help.

My 1986 LeSharo w/2.2gas and Auto trans.
radiates heat from the dashboard.
Any chance of added insulation to firewall? Also what's the deal w/the poor little distributor access panel in the firewall.
Any way to add radiator (tranny cooler?) to help with this apparently
built-in problem?

It has a different dash board in it. Instead of gas gauge reading with a gauge needle empty or full, it reads when it's full it says 99% and next to that along the top it has ribbons that move back and forth as we're driving. One is volts I think but don't know what the other one is. If you could give me information on it, I sure would appreciate it. Jim

From Engr Ibrahim Wahala Chairman Ecowas contract Award Commitee.
Cote d' ivoire chapter West Africa.


Good morning,

May I use this medium to introduce to you a business transaction which will yield to mutual benefit. Before I proceed, I will not forget to tell you where I got your mail contact and also introduce myself to you. I got your email contact from the internet as I was searching for someone to propose for this transaction.

I am Engr Ibrahim Wahala, the Execueive chairman of the economic community of west african states (ECOWAS) contract Awarding commitee, Cote d'ivoire chapter.the mission of the commitee is the awarding of approved contracts to contractors for the developement of west Africa, it is sponssored by the world bank and the IMF,Under my chairmanship, many contracts have been awarded and implemented by both local and foreign contractors. This is why I am writing you, on the 21st of february 2001, a contract was awarded to an Ivoirian contractors for the building of 115 primary schools around the country, this contract was at the value of US$ 17.2 million dollars. After one week of the award of the contract, the contract came back to meet me and told me confidentially that he cannot finace the completion of the contract, meaning he was financially incapable to implement the in that developement, I told him that we shall look for a foreign contractor who shall do the contract.After two weeks, we got a Japaneese contractor who was interested in doing the contract, we negotiated with him and we came to a compromise with him to do the contract for US $ 15 million dollars. since then, we have been patiently waiting for the completion of the contract and the payment of the japaneese contractor. Now the contract have been finalised and the contractor have been paid, we now have US$ 2.2 million dollars in suspense account in the Eco bank here in Abidjan.this is why I am writing you to assist us transfer this fund into your bank account. The assistance we need from you are 1) for you to provide a safe bank account account where the fund will be transferred into. 2) For you to send your bank particulars and the address of your bank. 3) For you to provide your personal telephone and fax numbers Please, all these are important for the registration of your company as the foreign contractor that did a contract worth US$ 2.2 dollars.

Please for your information, I have every power to transfer this fund myself to an account, but due to the fact that the contract money must be paid into a foreign account because it falls in part B which is only for foreign contractors. I and my partner have agreed to negotiate your compensation with you immediately we receive your email showing your interest to assist. Please, I want you to know that I have every possibilty to get all the documents that will prove the award and completion of a contract worth the US$ 2.2 million dollars.we will be glad to receive an urgent possitive response from you to enable us commence the transaction without any waste of time.

Awaiting your urgent response.

Diesel fuel mileage Kerry Phillips 7-23-04

Check for transmission problems
Re: LeSharo Help Edward Shibley 7-15-03  
I have a 1989 Lesharo Automatic Transmission three speed. It was doing fine, drove it in forward gear it is fine, however will not move into reverse. It had been siting for about three months in New England Weather, however started fine, I put it into forward gear, went about twenty five feet, it would not move from that point. I added fluid, it ran fine until I went to put it into reverse. It wants to move, but does not go in that gear. could it be the computer? I never had any indication of a slipping Tranny or snything that might give you a clue that the tranny was going. It has about 68,000 miles. HELP!

I am looking at a 1984 LeSharo Diesel, 55,000 miles, average condition needing a new hot water tank and a $100 repair job on the engine. I can't find any pricing info on LeSharo's older than 1986. Can you give me an idea on a fair price from a private seller and/or a resource I could look into for this information. Thanks. John Kiewit
Re: LeSharo Help and News BRIAN BELIEW 4-1-03  

Re: LeSharo Help and News Greg 4-4-03  

The conversion is a very big job.

Yes you change the motor mounts and just about everything else. When it is done you will have a very reliable and economical coach.

We can do the conversion for you or we have "kits' for sale.

Info at: under Chrysler conversion or For Sale/ DIY Component Packages.

Re: LeSharo Help and News Joe Thykkuttathil 4-25-03  
Hi Greg,

I have a 1986 LeSharo. I'm looking for the internal wiring for the coach. It has Dometic Frig, Water heater and Gas Stove. No Generator. Aux Battery, and Charger, with 110 connection. There was a wiring diagram pasted in the Bin above the stove. But it is now unreabable. I would like to find a wiring diagram, before I would run into wiring trouble. I checked with Mobility RV, and they told me that they don't have it. Any solutions? Thanks

Re: LeSharo Help and News Harland Minscer 5-10-03  
I am interested in purchasing a good clean low miles Lesharo with the 4 seats forward and equipped with a generator. I am also interested in knowing the weak points of this vehicle.
Re: LeSharo Help and News Ken Eggert 5-12-03  
I don't know if you found the 'good clean low miles Lesharo with the 4 seats forward' LeSharo you were interested in, but I'm about to sell a clean, '89 with the fuel injected engine and 5-speed trans. The milage on mine is about 89,000. My old transmission failed a few hundred miles ago, and I replaced it with an used transmission that I bought from SworksRV in Bozeman, MT, the folks who do the LeSharo engine conversions to Chrysler minivan engines. They said that the transmission came from a van they were converting, and had 52,000 miles on it. I had it professionally installed, and it is working fine. The coach is very clean inside, and everything works. A few nicks and dents on the outside, but otherwise in good shape. I'm the third owner, and all have kept it up.

The NADA Avg retail is about $8700. I plan to list it for $8100, and I'm open to reasonable offers.

I'm located in New Mexico. Let me know if you have an interest.
Re: LeSharo Help and News Ronald S Russell 5-15-03  
I just bought one 1985 today found in junk yard has all parts and all owner manuals and repair manuals on a scale 1-10 about 4 seems like a nice project
Re: LeSharo Help and News Ronald S Russell 5-15-03  
Any Sujustions
Re: LeSharo Help and News Bryan Semones 7-25-03  
I Just bought an 86-Turbo Diesel. The turbo has been removed, rebuilt, and is sitting on the front floorboard. I dont have a repair manual and im not familiar with diesel engines much less a turbo system.... would anyone be willing to scan the apropriate pages of the manual and Email them to me?

On the Firewall heating issue. I plan to make a reflective insulating pad out of super sticky roofing foil and thin insulation.

I noticed that the pipe off the Exhaust manifold is alot bigger than the pipe comming out of the muffler.... I dont know much about Diesel but in gas engines backpressure is safe to relieve.... any info?

75hp is not enough power for such a heavy "americanized" vehicle.... Im sure the French laughed in secret when they saw what us "stupid american cowboys" did to their "enviro van"... the only solution i can see other than selling out to its Winnebago half and fitting a sloppy american 6cyl is to lighten the GVW.... Im gonna rip out all the wood, pressboard, carpet, and that big oak cupholder..yeeeehaw!... and refit the int with more light weight materials. Also that big heavy steel molding around the body has got to go.... i havnt looked under it yet to see what i have to work with but im thinking that a bit of molding putty and that roofing foil again may help shave off another 100 lbs or so and still blend into the molding thats welded under the door.... I wonder if the molding provides sheer for the bago.... any clues?...

At any rate... Shaving pounds off the rig will be much apreciated by that 75hp plant whose power band is at a whoping 4500rpm.....Im sure that LeSharo engines are totaly confused.... and forced into servitude for which they were never intended... so they react acordingly....*(french accent) "I have been burned before!"
If my efforts prove futile.... anyone know how i might join a volvo B23 motor to any FWD tranny?
Re: LeSharo Help and News Linda 10-4-03  
I can get a 1990 LeSharo with A/T and 39,900 miles on it for $7000. It supposedly has a $2000 new stereo system in it. This seems like a good deal. Is it? It supposedly needs about $200 worth of muffler work. Any problems getting muffler parts for the LeSharo? What kind of mileage does it get? Overall, is this a dependable vehicle mechanically?
Re: LeSharo Help and News Eric Olsen 5-31-04  

Did you like your LeSharo? Any suggestions to someone thinking of getting one?


Re: LeSharo Help and News Jim Annino 6-20-04  
I'm thinking of getting an 85 LeSharo. Is there anything I should know about before I do?
