1971 Chieftain
User Album - Owner: road glide - 16 items
Purchased May 28th, 2018 from 4th owner. Have all registrations since new. Sold $14500 brand new....shows 51,100 on odometer and 325 hrs on generator....
Now we have moved on to restoring it to be useful and road worthy. Have all propane appliances working except heater furnace. It has the Atwood 6 gallon water heater with heat exchanger. I changed out the gas thermostat control $59 (Robert Shaw 91602) and installed new burner tube $21 along with pilot/thermocouple assembly $17. Dometic refrigerator works great on 120v (5 degrees freezer - 25 refrig after 4-6 hrs), gas was another issue. Found a donor frig and replaced the propane controls and thermostat....
Pressured water system is working and holding tanks seem okay. Installed new shower hose and sprayer. Found a donor outside door lock handle at a wrecking yard. Our handle was broken in half on the outside...Have all lights working.
Still needs aux fuel tank, purge lines before install, get generator (2.5 onan) running. The drivers side leaf spring has sagged. Once most of that is done....need to get rid of 15 year old tires (16") on split ring rims...
Also found a HVAC tech who will freshen up the Coleman MachII air conditioner...I threw a $7 start capacitor at it but it's running but not cold
