1970 22Ft 318, lots of new but needs work

Unread postby bryanspoon on Sun Mar 20, 2016 4:15 pm

I have a 1970 22ft Dodge Travco with the 318, simple carb, runs great, has lots of new but is using a lot of oil. Diagnosis says it will need a new head gasket most likely.

Things done:

New rubber all around + spare.
New shocks
New brakes all around
New Right header done
New blackwater tank
Hot water and AC works
Stove works
Fridge 'probably works' (according to my mechanic but I couldn't get it to work).

Has 2 tanks, 50 gallons in the back and 20 gallons - nice to fill up, turn the switch and go.

She had a leak inside once before I got her but I fixed it and she's dry and without mold - actually pretty clean.

I have spent over $10,000 on her, and just want someone to use her and fix her and run her - she ran last year all the way to Yellowstone in her and she was great, but then I had the header leak fixed ($1500) and then the oil leak.

Right window has a big crack, but everything pretty much works.

Don't low ball me too bad folks, I have receipts for over $10k of work, you fix the engine and you won't need brakes or rubber or shocks or or or ;)

Plenty of pics to send if I can't do it here ;)

Dang, why does everything have to be on the other side of the country.
I'd be all over that. I assume it looks like the one in my Avatar ?
Post up some pics.
That sounds like the perfect candidate for a Cummins swap.

Using oil is not a sign of a bad headgasket unless the oil is in the antifreeze. Is the engine oil clean otherwise ? Is there pressure in the cooling system when yo first start it up ?
Does it smoke when running and if so what color and does it smell sweet or like burning oil ?
