It's A Clipper / Mechanic
« Last post by homestead on Today at 06:55:40 AM »
We have an American clipper that is in the Orting area of Washington . We live in Alaska and are wanting to bring her home but we need to make sure she can make the trip to Seattle to be barged to Southeast Alaska. Our clipper is at a friends house right now in Orting and we are looking for someone that works on the clippers in that area that could get us up and running.
If anyone knows of a good mechanic that has knowledge of clippers it would be a huge help thank you.

Steve,
You Delete The Plate From New Faucet,
& Mount As Single Hole, Like They Do For
Granite Counter Tops.
My Replacement Was A Little Low, But You Can Find A Moen
With A Tall Goose Neck/with Spray Unit.
Maybe Toedtoes, Can Send A Photo Of Hers? ???

Good Luck,
Joe

Thanks for checking Joe.
I have an 1 1/8 hole punch so I can get that done if necessary.
The thing I see under my faucet assembly is just one round hole. Hoping I can find something to match closely.
My ACE hardware didn't have any matches to the OEM.

Hi Steve,
Just Got Back, Rally Was Great This Weekend.
The Supply Office Was Not At This Rally.
1.) Do You Have An Ace Hardware In Your Area?
You May Bring To Try & Match Up.
Parts Are No Longer Available For Those Faucets.
2.) Most Clippers At Rally Have Early Model With Out Cartridges, Just O-Rings Style.

3.)If You Replace Faucet, Like From Lowe's Or The Home Depot Stores,
You Have To Recut Hole To 1 1/8" ID Hole For Newer Faucets & Pull Out Sprayers, Also Make Sure You Use Name Brand Faucets. I.e. Moen, Delta, Price Pfisher.

Sorry I Do Not Have A Replacement Part #.
Joe

Ps, Make Sure Your Water Supply Lines Are Tight..

Hi Joe,
Did you have any luck over the weekend with the faucet cartridge ID?
At this point, I would even replace the whole thing as time is getting short. I have a trip coming June 15th.

Hello Bert,

I Saw The YouTube Video, You Have Some Work Ahead. Looks Like Its Do able, Ie; Wiring, You Will Need Smog Amplifier, PVC Valve Looks Like The Wire Harness Is Fried.

I Noticed That Disp, Cap & Spark Plug Wires Needs Replacing. Is This Engine A 360 CI.?
My 440 Has Disp. On Front Right Side. I Bought My Vacumn Lines @ Napa Auto, I Use Silicone Style,
They Are Better With The Heat Generated In Doghouse. 

I Would Try Your Local Wrecking Yard, Get Some Of The Parts, That Burned Up, Find A 1975-1978
B-300 Dodge Van. Also You Can Check Online E-Bay & Mopar Nos Parts. Ill Try & Get Some Contacts For Old Dodge Parts If Needed. Let Us Know How You Make Out.

Hello Bill,
And Welcome To ACOC Web Forum.
The OEM Clipper Bags, Can Go I Think 5 Psi To 75 PSI,
I Have Installed On My 1977 Clipper Rear Kitchen.  After Market Firestone Air Bags, They Use
5Psi - 100 Psi, I Run about 40-45 Psi. I Had My Rear Springs Re- Arached & Added An Extra Leaf Springs. I Can Get By With 10 Psi When I Tow My Fishing Boat.

What Year Is Your Clipper? If You Have A Air Leak, Firestone Sells Air Bags, Less Brackets.
Also, What State Do You Live In? I Have The Spring Company Info, If You Live In Northern California.

Hey, Joe: there's two minutes for you on YouTube of the inside of the engine. All I've done to it since is pull out some wires and tubes and vacuum up the smell as best I can.

Thanks for the support. I'm not much of a mechanic, but I still want to do my best.
