Re: never seen this before

This one turns up in pictures every now and then. Opinions seem to be split on its aesthetics!

Re: 1992 in Seattle area - $16,500

Not inappropriate at all, though I did split it out into a new thread. Thanks for posting it.

Re: Replacing the converter

Okay, this was a long time ago (looks like I did the writeup in 2008), so I just pulled the cover off mine and confirmed that the blue wire is completely gone. You can see it in the picture of the remnants of the old converter. From my pictures, I believe it went from the converter to the top of the...

Re: No electricity to monitor/pump/12V & now 110 outlet & more!

There isn't really a different quality level in automotive fuses that I'm aware of. The original panel in mine had blade-style fuses. Basically you just pull them and look to see if there's a break in the wire in the middle ( Picture on this page. ) It's unusual for a fuse to randomly blow, though -...

Re: B190 database

Hi Skater: Thanks for developing and keeping this database. And I love your VIN decoder! You may well have my 1994 van in your database, but in case not, here is an updated list of the particulars. I copied your “must have” list below so I’d be sure to include what you asked for— You're welcome. On...

Re: B190 database

Here's one i picked up a few days ago. 1992 1FDJS34G9NHA29217 Don't have the airstream VIN at the moment, still learning about these things. Thanks! Did not have this one before. Where are you located? (City, State if you're comfortable with that. Or just state.) The Airstream VIN is embossed on an...

Re: B190 database

Knox_Gal reports her sequence number for her 1991 is #189 (down from 193). So now we know at most 188 were made in 1989 and 1990!

Re: B190 database

Update! We're up to 12.6% of the B190s in the database. I had a thought tonight. We don't know how many 1989, 1990, and 2000 B190s there are - our information is incomplete. But it occurred to me that we could at least calculate an upper limit. The highest 1999 sequence number we have is 1342. We al...

Re: Inside hanger over tub for wet items

I found this item at Ikea. The rods pull out for extended drying. It is attached to the side of the bathroom mirror as shown with included screws. If there is no store near you it can be ordered online. The price was $12. When not in use it can be pushed back, out of the way. That’s a great idea. I...

Re: 1987 Okanagan VC2RT-111 restoration project - Richland, WA

Correction: Per the VIN, it's a fuel injected 1987 chassis, not a carbureted 1986. (351 engine.)

1987 Okanagan VC2RT-111 restoration project - Richland, WA

Kind of an unusual situation today - a member has contacted me with a request to post his '87 Okanagan for sale. If you are seriously interested, I will put you in touch with him. Note, this is a restoration project; the van is not running and has not been used since 2012. (Disclaimer: I believe thi...

Re: 96 Portland OR

One correction: According to the VIN, it has a 460. (The confusion probably stems from the 460 being part of the 385-series of engines.)

Re: Does the 1994 B190 have an OBD-II port?

I don't think a '94 would have OBD-II.
