Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome belt change out J Kennedy 4-13-12  
I am trying to tighten or replace all the belt on my 1987 Fleetwood Southwind Eagle motorhome. There are 3 of them 1-serpitine and two v-belts. I have looked up from the bottom and from the top cannot see the adjustment point much less anything else. Am I going to have to do this by feel or what. I have no paperwork for this vehicle. Is there anywhere I could get a picture of what it is suppose to look like so would have an idea where to start. Thanks J Kennedy

Would a 454 from a motorhome make a good drag racing engine? Alex 2-10-12  
Are the blocks any good for drag racing and a lot of hp? Will they hold up to NOS? Also what would be a good rotating assembly and top end kit to get around 900-1000 hp?

Re: 454 chevy engine in Coachmen 86 motorhome Paige 10-21-12  
I am trying to find out how to change the belts on a 1986 Coachmen Motorhome with a 454. It seems impossible to be able to access the belts to install the new belt. Is there a trick? There is no access underneath the motorhome, the dog house does not allow access and the engine compartment door in the front of the motorhome, the belts are blocked by the radiator. There has to be an easier way then what I am looking at. Thoughts?

Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome BUBBA THE BUS TECH 3-26-10  
I would start with making sure the ignition is correct, the harmonic balancers are notorious for slipping and the marks being in the wrong place.
Then if you are willing to pull the heads you might as well do a complete RV hop up. Cam, Headers, Intake.
But as to cheap and easy headers and exshaust are the most important for fuel economy, imediate gain and being able to take advantage of future improvements.
Good Luck
Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome DZ 3-26-10  
Hi... Bubba The Bus Tech !! Can you go in to more detail about Harmonic Balancer slipping ? My rv awhile back seamed to loose power, I had a guy adjust the timming and it seamed better ! What does this mean? Do we need new harmonic Balancers to fix ? If you go to time the engine are the marks in the wrong place ?
Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome BUBBA THE BUS TECH 3-26-10  
When the harmonic balancer slipps it is best to change it, but I ran my big block pickup for 50,000 miles after I found mine had slipped.
The way to time the engine now is to locate top dead centre. I use a dial indicater and a long probe through the # 1 sparkplug hole. (or its running mate if access is easier) and I mark this point on the pully not the harmonic.
The other way is to butcher a spark plug so a metal rod will touch the top of the piston and then you gently roll the engine with a wrench untill it does touch, mark this point then roll it the other way and repeat. Top dead will be half way in between tthe two marks.
The mark on the pully stays for ever as the pully is splined to the crankshaft rather than rubber mounted.
Good Luck

Hello I have a 1988 winnebago superchief.454 chevy engine. I was driving along this week-end at about 60 miles per hour for about 1 and ahalf and suddenly at a point it felt like I was missing power a little bit. I thought it was my gas filter or maybe a vacuum hose. It was ok when I drove it at about 40 mph. Any help or information concerning this problem would really help me. Thanks!

Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome Dan 3-2-11  
In references to my problem on my 88 winnebago 454, it was my fuel filter at the carb and at the fuel line under the RV. It ran well, but I do know this spring it will need a good tune-up. Just want to know what are the best plug and wires do I need to prevent them from heating up. Thanks evryone.

Re: 454 chevy engine in motorhome Jim 8-22-10  
For Dan.
I have a 1990 Coachman with a 454 engine and I think I have the same problem as you. After driving for a couple of hours I experience a loss of power along with some bucking and occasional backfire. I recently had the exhaust system replaced except for the manifold, and a tune up that included an overhaul of the carberator. I had this work in Vancouver and on the way home the problem started again. It seemed to be aggrivated by very hot weather. Would someone please tell what the problem is.
Jim.

I have recently purchased a 1996 Winnebago Warrior with 51,000 miles on it. I drove it about 75 miles and the speedometer and the fuel gauges quit working and I was experiencing a loss of power. I stopped and the engine would not start again. The starter motor was hot. The alternator was not charging battery so had it and the fuses in the dash replaced. Worked for about 40 miles and repeat of the original problem occurred. I need some help!

My 1979 Itasca RV has been sitting for about 1 year. Tried to start and it was not turning over. Primed carb with gas and runs fine as long as I'm pooring gas in Carb. I attached siphon pump upstream of filter under engine and created vaccum which flattened the siphon hose. Reversed siphon hoses to force gasoline backwards and sprung leak at siphon/gasline connection due to pressure. Any suggestions? Thank you all for your help.

Ernest - Did you ever get a wiring diagram? I need one too...I just bought a Brave that didn't have batteries so I don't know how to wire up the batteries. I've already experimented and destroyed 1 battery! Thanks for any help you can provide. I hope to use the RV this summer.
