    After reading some of the topic, I see alot of trouble going on with 454 Chev, engine here.
    What about Ford V10 engines guys, do they have troubel with alignment, where the belt, squeal alot. I looked at a 93 Chev 464, see breeze, that was going on on it.
    The one I'm looking ,really setup to pickup in week, is a 93 coaschman, with Frod, V10, I've seen couple of them, with rebuilt motors, at 100,000 miles.
    The engine runs like a new one now, person had it, had all records, very little maintence need, he traded it cause wife, wanted a new coach. they been in coach for 9 yrs,,she loves it,rving that is.
    So, guys let me hear , abot this V10 engine,if you know. anything.
    Deal aren't final yet.
    Got 43,000 mils on it.

    HI guys eaglewing

    When did Ford start making the v10? has it already been that long? I have the V10 in a 2002 32 Holiday Rambler and it has performed great and I am a GM man. Did buy a GM toad to pull behind so it could push a little :laugh: . Went to Alaska last summer and the mountains were no problem. Littly noisy when rpms are up. uses no oil and temp is fine on long pulls and hot days. I have heard that the early V10 did lack a little in power. You sure that 93 is not a 460?

    I'm pretty sure the V10 isn't a '93.

    I know that Ford did not put the V-10 into the class A chassis until March of 1999. It was released to the manufacturers at that time as an early 2000 chassis. I have a 1998 Cruise Master that was built on the 99 Ford/V-10 chassis. I special ordered it in early Feb. with the 18K GVWR/V-10 chassis as a stipulation of the contract. If I remember correctly, they did introduce the V-10 in the class C, cutaway chassis one year earlier.

    If your Coachman is a 93 the engine is a 460, V-8. The 460 is a good engine, but lower horse power and GVWR.
