Going to give this another try as my first attempt didn't go so well on the 'Diner-conversion' thread (Will update/edit that soon).
Started my Cummins swap by pulling off the bumper; only took better part of an hour. That sucker is HEAVY! Better part of a 100 lbs I bet. Will be looking to knock substantial weight off that baby while still retaining a 5000 lb towing standard.
This will take a while as it will unfold as time and resources permit, so please be patient.
More pics and hopefully some videos (FMC-TV) to follow.

autotraveler My New 1974 FMC 2900R (9 Photos, 3 Comments : Last updated 2019-01-27) I just purchased unit 487 on 1/26/2019. Here's a few of the photos of my coach. I'll add more when I fully document the vehicle when I move it to its new home in the next couple of week.
I am going to need a passenger-side windshield in the coming months. If you have one you're willing to sell please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BigRabbitMan West Coast Oregon Rally Oct 2018 (44 Photos, 2 Comments : Last updated 2018-10-23) This album is a sample of what we did and enjoyed at the rally at Casey's Riverside RV Park near Oak Fir, OR. We ended up with seven FMC's, and two SOB's out of the twelve people that originally intended to attend. Coach and life issues sometimes come ahead of rallies! The photos are by Stephen Heinrichs, Larry Enoksen, Helen Wolfe, and Jim Steinborn.
