      Not sure, why not look in the Bently Manual and see what it has for cruise control? If there is a module and stuff, just add the stalk and module and other bits. If no module, just add the stalk and...

      Unless you plan on homing the cylinder walls, I wouldn't replace the rings. Bearings are up to you. Plasti-gage then and see where they are.

      No, you just need to have the correct tools, and the Bently Manual is a tool. Just because someone had pity on you and posted a link, you might not be so lucky next time.

      What? That should be an O2 sensor. An O2 sensor socket/wrench on the base hex should get it right out. Or disconnect the wire at it's plug and leave it in the manifold.

      Same block and same crank. The diff is the pistons that have a higher CR for the RV motor.

      You are really over-thinking this. #1 piston at TDC, Cam at TDC for #1, put belt on. There is nothing else to worry about, other than tensioning the belt properly.

      Did you put dielectric grease on the boots on BOTH ends of the wires? As you found out, they'll stick to coils as well as spark plugs.:mad:
