    Howdy John,
    I was browsing the forums looking for grill guard ideas and I came upon a photo you posted in 2015. I absolutely love the grill guard. I was wondering if you had any additional photos or details of how you made it that you could send me. I am looking at making my own.

    Thank You very much,
    Samuel James

    Hi John,

    My wife and I are a young duet called Blue/Rose/Revival. We operate our business from our 1985 E350 6.9 Travelaire. I was curious to know if you could link me to any known resources for this model (considering you have the same). Also, what is your opinion of what's under the hood? - Durable? Any tips on taking care of her?

    Thanks John. Even linking me to old chats would be a huge help.

    Thanks for that info. I have discovered that the Bus I am took the diesel out of also has a 3.53 rear end and was thinking of switching the two, but I think I will leave it for now. Do you happen to have any wiring diagrams for the chassis and or engine?

    I forgot to include an email in my message about the 14' cube van 6.9l conversion I am doing. I see from the forum, I can't receive any messages for several days.

    Hello John
    I came across your very detailed instrument panel wiring diagram. Thanks! I am converting a 1991 14 ft cube van into a toy hauler motorhome. My cube is being converted from a 460 to a 6.9L with a c6. It has 4.10 rear end. What mileage difference you see in your morothome with the 3.54 and your van with the 4.11s? Also in doing my project I have come across some different wirings in both the donor vehilce - 1987 shuttle bus with the 6.9, and the 1991 460 cube van. I have a manual for the cube van wiring, but not for the diesel shuttle. Do you have a wiring diagram for the 6.9 diesel that includes the engine components and the alternator and charging systems?
    I can't believe how simple the 6.9 is compared to the 460! Hardly and wires coming off the engine and minimal vacuum lines.
    Thanks for the information that you have posted so far that has helped me and the people you have replied to.

    Hey, I saw where you said you had plenty of interior pictures. You wouldn't happen to have a picture of a blue dent-side with a tan interior would you? I'm doing a restoration and can't picture it or find any pictures. I know it's not a factory combo. How do you think it would look?
