Just thought I would pass this on.

I found it under Gillig Motor Home chassis problems- www.automotix.net safety recalls & defects.
recall for 1987-1991 Gillig motorhome chassis
steering:linkages; link; drag; connection recall.
A problem of separation in the steering connections.

Should be of interest for those who have Gillig chassis. You might have to open it this way

Could not follow the link so I looked elsewhere. There were 125 chassis built and all had DD 6v92 turbo engines. I have not heard of any Barths in the 1987 to 1991 years that used a DD V6 turbo engine. Anyway the listed repair is to remove two 1/4" spacers on the Pitman Arm and reinstall the nut and torque to specs. If they exist it should be a quick and free fix.

The 91 Barth that was owned by Meric Hovind (Bubba Barth) had a 6V92. Only one I've seen here. Sadly, he has passed away and I'm not sure what happened to the coach.
