Good morning.
I picked up a '73 Winnebago just for the 440/TF drive train to use in another vehicle.
Stripped her down to the frame, and now would like to see if I can get her to run to see what I've got to work with. (noticed that there are 2 different cylinder heads already.. i??
I had to cut some looms to get the body off, so I have most of the wiring to engine, Just need to adapt in a switch (and mini-starter)
I HATE wiring! Gives me nightmares and anxiety attacks..
I'll try and get some pics of what I have on my phone, and post here.

The camper was a tow away, so no paperwork/registration. Just tag on inside of radiator support.
If anyone has a simple diagram to make one start/run, and would post up or PM me that would be Great!


Just didn't want to spend the cash for a whole shop E-manual just for the starting/run circuit


Thanks for any help.

WOW!! That looks just perfect!


I don't have a problem rebuilding engins, carbs, tranny's, body work, landscaping etc..

Just don't have the patients for electrical work.
I guess if I'm immersed in it, that would help.


Thanks for your help.
