several questions on my newly accquared ,85 FC-35
how was the engine cover orginally supported?, i am using a stick,doesn't one have to remove the lower portion of the cover to have the valves ran( adjusted).
does anyone know the orr and orr part number for the gas springs? (for inside doors) how would you figure the force required to hold the door open? i was going to use a fish scale to measure the weight amd half the poundage.

thanks for all your help, all of you togeather have a lot of knowledge and i thank you for sharing it

Yes, the bottom of the doghouse does need to be pulled to access the vavle covers. The top portion on mine is a telescoping 2 part metal support on the drivers side. Nothing fancy.

On mine the lower section was practically glued in place by caulk that some one had put down. So the first time might be a pain in the rear to remove it. If your not going to do the valves yourself I would disassemble the dog house first, then deliver the coach to the shop in question.

The lower section is bolted down and does have some screws attaching to the front of the bus.
