I'm a bit late to the thread but I got a 2.2 from Wolfsberg MW in early 2007. We only use it for trips these days so it's got around 40K on it. I'm a happy customer-- it's been a real solid engine and ...

I took out the rear heater for extra space... I don't miss it. But it doesn't get that cold around here, and I rarely have passengers so the front blasters seem fine.

Yeah, iirc there's a little vinyl tubing to let the air out of the top of the tank.

But there are no guarantees the filler hose is on tight Smile Mine leaked where it attaches to the tank until I repl ...

under the fridge would be pretty cool if it fits there... the intake/exhaust go straight down a few inches so make sure they aren't blocked by the propane tank.

What kinda fridge did you get?

Ruined a Yellowtop and an Odyssey by running them down... they were under warranty but shipping is expensive. You're never too far from a Sears and the warranty is good.

It's an automatic - limits the replacement engine choices - its also listed on ebay.

Does not pose a problem for the Bostig conversion. Just an additional $400 for some automatic specific parts.
