Topic: What chassis do I have? I know it is Ford, but...

Posted By: ugh on 12/24/09 09:47am

I have 1997 Pace Arrow with Ford Chassis w/ 460 in it.

I see some people mention p-XX and so on. Does it have ODBC I or II?

Also, Is there any Haynes book I could get?

Thanks

Why don't You contact Fleetwood after the Holiday and ask Them for All the details!
Make a List of questions, and have the Serial or VIN Handy! I have always found them to be very Helpful.

I venture at a Ford F-53 chassis. And according to Ford Coverage Chart, starting in 1995, all Ford & Lincoln-Mercury vehicles implement OBD II.

And the above link that Getup'ngo gave you has some excellent info concerning the topic!!!

You can take the VIN number off the dash to a Ford dealer to get exact information. It should be a F-53.
The Chilton's manual for Chev has motorhome chassis. You may want to check for a Ford version with F-53 chassis.
Haynes shows a manual 36094 for full size Ford Vans. Not sure if it includes MH chassis.

Vehicles over 8500 GVWR didn't go to OBD II until later. I don't think the F53 went to OBD II untill the 1999 V10 6.8L

It is amazing a company the size of Acton is still uninformed about these issues.........the F53 with 460 is infact OBD1..........not OBD2

Click HERE for Ford's serial number decoder. It will tell you the year, model, engine, where it was made, etc.

I have a 1999 chassis that was built 4/98 and the ODBC is on the right side of the stearing column just below the bottom of the dash.

I don't know if this helps but I found my OBD I test port connector today. It was inside the engine bay almost parallel to the gas pedal,left side. The OBD II connector would be outside the engine bay near the steering column, under the dash. The Innova tester I bought said Ford MY 1981 to 1995 which complicates your search. Check the engine bay first. Your model should have a non-catalyst emmission sticker at the front left of the firewall, a few inches above the power steering fliud resevoir. To my knowledge, there are no non-catalyst OBD II systems.

That is right.

My '99 V-10 is actually a '98 Chassis by the sticker and Vin and it is OBD II.

Can't be a 98 F53 chassis. Ford didn't make a 98 F53 chassis. You are probably looking at the coach manufactures ID information.
