I had the local Parker store locally make up a new PS hose for Trey's rhd 110 this week. He'd over tightened the end going into the pump and ruined the bubble flare that makes the seal. Cut the end off a junk classic line sitting here and took his existing line in. The guy @ the counter says "I cant do what you want but if you let me do it my way I can make you one ". I said go for it, they cut the end off the metal tube, welded on a new swivel type fitting and the crimped on new flex hose etc. I'm expecting a huge bill considering it took the guy an hour , $32 with tax .

The Iveco 110 is a daily driver for about 2 weeks.
No problem going 85 MPH with about 1/3rd of the petal left, but keep it between 72 and 78 MPH where it seems most happy.
Enjoying the performance.

Figured you needed a break from "United Airlines - Yesterday's Incident"...
Will post a few pictures of the Iveco 110 in a day or 2 and provide some interesting vehicle history.

After almost 2 years, put this vehicle on the road.
The manual boost controller stuck and blew the head gasket after the boost hit about 25 PSI.

Was in a hurry to make Uwharrie, so swapped out the engine and have been driving it daily.
Very nice and very quick with lots of performance.
at 72 MPH you're only pushing the petal down less than 1/4".

Next step is installing the Glass Mat Deep Cycle Battery Bank and AC.

Was rushed to get to Uwharrie which I missed, but took the time to install a series of relays that divert the power output from the alternator to the deep cycle battery bank.
Also the relays switch the volt meter from reading the car battery reading the DC Battery Bank.

We used XS Power D5100, Deep cycle 12-volt AGM batteries
https://www.crutchfield.com/p_122D51...c&awug=9008492

They fit nicely in the battery box.
We will go back and make the proper cables, but for now everything works fine.
The next step will be to install 2 more under the right seat, but this will require modifying the tool box.

Next the machinist made a 4 groove crank pulley to replace the single pulley to run a higher output alternator and an AC compressor.

We did a mock-up using a piece of plywood to position the compressor and obtain the mounting plate dimensions.
Next we'll make the mounting plate and work out exactly where the compressor will mount and prototype the mounting before it is transferred from the engine in the shop to the engine in the vehicle.

Waiting on the mounting bolts to come in, but have the plate and the adjustable compressor bracket ready to tack weld onto the plate.

A few words related to post 47 deep cycle battery bank...

This is the most versatile, in my opinion.
I run a deep cycle battery bank in our 110 using the XS Power D5100, 12-volt AGM batteries.
https://www.crutchfield.com/p_122D51...c&awug=9008492

2 will fit nicely in the battery box along with the "car battery".
The next step will be to install 2 more under the right seat as soon as I can modify the tool box.

The deep cycle battery bank powers everything we use while stationary when camping or anything plugged in to the deep cycle battery bank outlets while driving.

We have a series of relays that can switch the alternator output from the "car battery" to the deep cycle battery bank.
While camping you can run the deep cycle battery bank flat, then start the engine on the "car battery", charge the "car battery", then switch over and charge the deep cycle battery bank.
While driving you can switch back and forth to keep both the deep cycle battery bank and the "car battery" charged.

We are going to make a proper series of cables for the deep cycle battery bank, but all works for now even though it looks jack legged.
Note the series of relays on the bulkhead triggered by a single switch to switch the alternator output.

We have a 145 Watt - 12V 12AMP solar panel to add while stationary.
Sometime when I get a chance, will post pictures of the swivel mounts for the solar panel that will let you position the panel in a variety of positions.

The plan is to refine this and use it in out Dormobile camper project retirement ride.

The AC is installed and blowing cold.
I used an inoperative elite unit that naturally had non-functioning controls that are way too difficult to troubleshoot, so bought a manual control to cycle the compressor and wired the fans to run off the existing switch.
The compressor circuit is connected to a low pressure cut out that is screwed into the receiver dryer.
In order to mate the refrigerant line, we welded O-ring AC fittings onto the evaporators peanut fittings.
Since we use electric cooling fans, the pusher fan on the condenser and the puller cooling fan are wired to come on when the AC is on or when the coolant thermo-switch completes the circuit to cool the engine.
AC is cold and will freeze the moisture in the air.
No more shirt stuck to your back during high temperatures and high humidity!

Acceleration is faster than a Rover TDI even with the AC compressor running.
While it was off the road, installed a new timing belt and seals all around.
Then did rear disc brakes.
Still need to finish installing all the seats to for 8 and build proper cables for the auxiliary battery back, replacing what we found around the shop to get things working.

When we are finished will post up some pictures.
Next items on the list is the roof rack with swing around solar panel rack prototype for the Dormobile camper and the rear sink/hot water tank combined with the swing away spare tire & carrier.
