Ok Bruce I found out a Williams air throttle can have up to 150 lbs supply pressure then the pedal regulates the pressure  I am told the pedal pressure will be 20,60 or 80 lbs going to the actuator on the engine his was on the money at 60 lbs all is good now  Grin

LUVRBUS and all other eagle experts.
I have a '64 01 eagle, airbags have been added as supplemental or main
suspension, I don't know which. but anyway, the bus leans to one side
so I would like to know what the height off the ground , front and rear,
should be and where the measurements should be taken.

When's the last time you changed the fuel filters? You could also have junk in your fuel line. Have you ran it with low fuel lately?

My 4106 recently had an issue like this, I ran it down below 1/4 of a tank, and pushed up a steep incline causing me to stall out on the Astoria-Megler Bridge, which was a terrifying experience. Was able to coast down to the bottom though. Had to end up blowing the junk out of the fuel lines on the side of the road with an air compressor and a generator.

talk to the zoning board and see if you can't get a variance  for a pole barn.
A lot of times they will do this on an individual case.
Once you get a variance have a pole barn the size your garage will be built.

Also I suggest you go ahead and re-roof the house with metal roofing as it will be a better match for todays pole barns and snow slides off smooth metal roofs better than shingles.

   Check the spindle area where the bearing rides for wear on the lower side. It could have a wear spot causing the hub to shift, even though bearing is correctly adjusted. I ran into this several years ago on a previous coach. Finally found it after a few seal replacements. BTW, fwiw, I STILL recommend grease packed bearings for these older coaches because of the mess and cost plus labor. Some will argue the point but my opinion won't be changed.

Don't all DC negatives, regardless of their voltage, return through the frame to the batteries?   Because steel bus frames are not the best electrical conductors, it could be prudent to use a separate negative conductor, i.e. use 2-conductor copper wire instead of just one red positive, at least for the larger DC loads.   (I'm doing this even for my water pumps that draw only about 7 A each.)   It's no more work to run this 2-conductor wire, and as long as it runs without interruption from source to load without intermediate splices or connections it should be more reliable than using the frame as a return, and produce less voltage drop.   Just make sure the wiring is sized for no more than 3% voltage drop under full load, and ideally less than that.

   Almost any piece of metal will do for a ground return.

Dave glad to hear that you've got it worked out!
I still recommend Hotard Bus Company for replacing the windows.
I am sure they can get the door window an gaskets you need for MCI or another source (or may even have them as they have run MCI's for yrs. (I owned an ex-Hotard 102A3 that we parted out sometime ago)
Donald in their shop is great to work with.
 Don Fairchild sells parts to a company down there somewhere that worrks on 2 stroke Detroits if you need engine work.

I highly recommend "Hotard" bus service in New Orleans for the window replacement and DonFairchild can direct you to a good 2 stroke mechanic there as well.  (he sells them parts for their marine engines)
