Electrical / Re: Closer to Making a New Headlight Wriing Harness
« Last post by Ray_pilot on July 19, 2019, 01:43:54 PM »
So what was the final resolution?  I need to rewire my Ultra and I was thinking of just starting over from scratch.  I don't trust any of the existing wires.
Did you ever end up with a wiring diagram - that you can share with everyone?
I'm going to do it anyway, but it would make my life easier if I had some good drawings to start with.
Thanks.

230-255 / Re: 231 Ultravan Build Project

On April 4th I received an update:

Forward progress with the results of the latest Computational Fluid Dynamic testing on UV548, our "road worthy" Olds 455 Toronado coach.

One of the latest test, they were able to get an increase of about 18% of actual air speed in the engine compartment.. Wooo-Hooo

Air movement is a good thing!!! Grin

A lot more testing still to go...
But it's all helpful, and more so for the hydraulic cooling system I have been working on.
Years ago, I thought the best and only way to help cool these overheating Ultravans was with a hydraulic cooling fan system.

YES - I could throw money and time at it and get it to work. Maybe even the first time out the gate.
But my choice is to move forward with proper data and "hopefully" only build it once and I would like it to work the best it possibly can.  Not just getting by...  The time invested and these test will surely help.
 
It's also a learning experience.

Thank you for your interest in my project and for stopping by.

All the best with your project(s).

Sincerely., Tony

I don't believe Kevin has ever gotten it running, no.

#20 in NY was a complete gut and restoration, and he lost his photos about halfway thru so he built the new interior from scratch, from memory,

Thanks, yes I'm planning on being at Kearney at least for one day. Do you know if Kevin's is road worthy? The metallic purple one from New York that just sold looked cool but the interior photos looked a little crude. Did you know anything about that one?
Thanks

There are three in KS, five in MO, one in OK, two in IA, and two in NE. AFAIK only three of those thirteen are roadworthy.

Closest to you I think is Kevin Golden #502 in Harrisonville. He's a busy guy but probably would show you if you can find a time.

I'm always happy to show off my project. You should definitely make plans to visit the national Rally in Kearney NW in Sept.

Hello:
I have just sold my 32 foot 1989 Airstream Excella 1000 restoration and am looking for an Ultra Van. I am not looking for much of a restore project but one that is usable and drive able now. I am looking for one as close to original as possible. My Airstream renovation was 100% authentic but I don't wan't to do another two year project. Please contact me at my member email address if you have something interesting. I live in eastern Kansas and plan on attending the get together in Kearney Nebraska this September. Thanks and nice to meet you all.
