The Mutcedes motor stand is on the lift, donor drive train out and Jeff M. Power plant is getting ready to fire upThis is its purpose for being here. This “Krylon donor” drive train is out and the new motor gets its monster trans before going into the “driving motor stand”Phillip will put the bolt one to the new motor, bring over the custom Monster transmission, mate it up to Pappy Smurf there and I go for a ride!PPhillip is one of those guys who can still pop his Red Bull with a hammer claw ( how do you open YOUR Red Bull?) and knock it out! Yesterday evening I took a pic of Mutcades and was going to call this phase a positivethe bolt-ons were coming off and I was say was exciting. Now, first thing this morning on a Friday all the guys should be home mowing the lawn…..here is my cara “motorless child”…..I think there was a song by that name…..Eric Clapton I think!
So today I need to find out why 1 tail light on the Volve will not work…….and its not the bulb or the socket! Makes you wanna go Hmmmm…… I’ll almost bet Phillip has skin in the game and Jeff’s motor will be in the hole next time I see the car…..he’s that way!The electric crank and propane tanks are mounted on the ArgosyThe orange epoxy texture coating on the tongue is cool. The interior has come out funky cool retro hi-techand how bout that all vertical woodgrain …..and here’s the galley in stealth mode.bit the green brings you back to the future! Gonna be a cool stagger.
So I’ve had 2 posts asking about what’s going on with the “Motorhome Rehab Ranch” page. Boy, that didn’t take long!
So after much soul searching and the fact that the next generation of GMC owners are eager to understand all they can about this machine and understanding the fact that these new folks ….yes, I have to now call myself old folks…… these guys understand the importance of information gathering tilting out all the superfluous nonsense ego and politics bring to most any enthusiast group like this they actually prefer to use their “tiny TV’s” to look up a blogger with videos that give them the balance of humor and content they want.
My 2 sons have shown me where they are now educating themselves……..its on the internet but the end-all is not bantering forums……no, they are in the video domain. There are guys out there putting out content that truly IS the future brain trust of about everything! Those of you out there give me an AhMen. I have seen the light and we are putting together a concentrated video blog program through the Patreon.com platform. The name will the the “Motorhome Rehab Ranch” we have been throwing around for some time.
Knowledge is Power…..and we want to be a part of this new information format to give the next stewards of our coaches that power.
Not the sifted bucket of bs social networks we have right now. I guess they are important….in that venue and I give full marks for the narrators of those sites because I just can’t be involve to any great extent there.
You and I are not here for those folks, go there to get your fill of that, come to Motorhome Rehab Ranch” for an unvarnished real look at some dos and donts when trying to keep your GMC on the road…….
Give us the weekend to launch this puppy, right now there are changes happening to the site and out Patreon page so stand by.
I know this will be what a large segment of the future owners will appreciate and use…….and the rest of us might just find the Millennial view of the information world might just be pretty cool. I watch a tech video site for hours last night about wired old hi fi here…..hech, I sold that stuff!
See you guys again soon…….and stay tuned
