Well still working on this project, had a devil of time getting the exhaust pipe out. Used Randy’s advice from an old thread to spray it and tap it over and over and over what a pain! Got a new one made but have not installed yet going to install insulation first.

When I bought the coach I was told the radiator fan only worked in high speed, was also told by a “mechanic” that it was running in low speed when they had the coach running. Before I started on this project I tried to get it in high speed by turning on the air conditioner (my belief on how it is suppose to work) no change. I hope to attach a photo of a “manifold” for the hoses going to the fan motor, is this the part which the speed of the fan? If so how if not what does? Notice in the pic two disconnected wires which I have no idea where they go, is the solenoid on the manifold suppose to have wires? Thanks in advance for any help!

I see 3 wires,and its hard to tell but only one looks like its ever been crimped.
And i think thats a coil on top of the block with the hoses,it should have a wire or 2 going to it.
You need to check to see if theres a broken wire coming out of the coil.
Its a dirty thing! haa! i had to say it!

Dirty? You should have seen it before i cleaned it..... Only two wires but you do have good eyes cause neither one appears to have been crimped. Can not see anything coming from the coil. Guess next move is to try and remove so I can really have a look.

Give me call 503-333-8270
Brian - what was the total time it took you to remove it?

Are you asking about the radiator? If so I would guess about 4 hrs but everything around here is work on it when I can. The most time was spent on getting the screws out that held the guards in place.

That “manifold” in your attachment is the “Webster Relief valve”.

Normal Operation:

“Webster Relief valve” coil Energized = Low Speed Fan.

“Webster Relief valve” coil Not-Energized = High Speed Fan.

The coil on top of the “Webster Relief valve” needs two wires to make it work.

With no wires connected to the coil of your “Webster Relief valve” it would be not Energized which would normally result in the Hydraulic fan motor running at “High Speed” whenever the engine is running.

Have your Hydraulic Reservoir filters and your High Pressure Hydraulic Oil Filter been changed recently?

Brian, Not sure if the rad is still out , but this is also a good time to replace the exhaust manifold gasket . Our 93WB rear bolts were inaccessible with the rad in but once removed piece of cake .

Thanks Al I will have to think about that one seems I could be working on this project forever.

John thanks for the reply! Any idea where I might get a new coil and where the wires that go to the coil come from?

No the filters have not been replaced they will be before I am done, working on insulation right now. I am debating with myself if I should change the hydraulic hoses (fan and pwr steering) since I have easy access with radiator not in any thoughts? Also putting in new fan motor. Thanks again for the help!

Well new insulation is in, new fan motor in, new hydraulic hoses in, replaced filters in the hydraulic system, has taken way to long but it does look much better not new but better.
Before I put the radiator in I would like to ask if any of you folks ever changed the Webster relief valve solenoid? I have determined the two wires I was asking about previously do go to the solenoid so if I could just find a new one or an old one that works I can wrap up this project, or just put it back in and run it the way it has been running. Thoughts?
