Manasst if your going to pay that amount your getting hosed take me about 8 hours if nobody has screwed up the throttle assbly just make sure they kiss you too get your moneys worth. usually right about 500 for installation and about 500 for used jakes but I recommend the new crossover fuel lines and make sure rack is run and timing set to specs.

should end your grade problems any any roads I've been on in USA I've come down most grades with 450,000 lbs and never hit brakes once of course I had three tractors 500 hp Cats and jakes all around 38 axles and 8 wheels per axle except fronts and drivers 4 each there and only 2 on front axle 242 tires all together . can't attach picture as too big \.

Tom,

I believe the fuel lines are about $6 or less from PC industries...

And the install shouldn't take much more than a day or two, depending on how many Coronas are involved and whether you actually want it to work.
For a slightly lower price, I have an 8 track tape and an old tape player.. the tape has a jake brake sound effect on it from a Pete 359 with a 12V71/w 5X4 air shift and 2-8" straight stacks. you could put it through your PA system with about 6 outside speakers and a 1000W amplifier!  Cheesy Grin

thanks guys, i get it. 

i tried to question the original amount of $5000 for parts and installation, told them to just be honest and say we don't like working on old buses, but he said that's really what they figured it would take to install the jakes and get the wire harness run front to back.  without the wiring, dropped the labor to about $2400.

still tooo rich for my blood by a long shot. 

Dallas and luvrbus, i'll check those companies for parts.  i don't mind helping do the jakes and supplying the coronas, just don't want to blow the engine or get stuck on a hill with no brakes suddenly.  and my skills aren't really mechanical, so i'm just the fetch person on this probably.

thanks for all the comments.  as usual, this board is filled with helpful heroes.

If you have the money, from what we have found, the WW Williams has done great work (which is very hard to come by). They should know what they are talking about. We haven't had much experince with them, but what we have had has been good.

I'm not sure that my response helps much... Roll Eyes Grin

God bless,

Tom, we haven't gotten the specific prices yet because of still being out of town, but Don and I were talking about it and we can put brand new Jakes on for you for a lot less money than they are quoting you for used! That is ridiculous! Of course, that would involve you bringing the bus out here and I know you didn't want to do that.. But even if you can just find someone to do the install, or learn enough from Clifford and others to do it yourself, we can still save you a chunk on the actual parts!

Tom, I would buy a complete set from Don that way there would be no chasing or waiting on parts that can be expensive from places as you found out and Dallas in his travels could install the units for you.   good luck

Tom,
   We can run all the wires while ya'll are at our place (while the "sisters" are up to no good LOL). I may have an almost complete set of Jakes for sale this spring very reasonable.  Jack

Tom,

The fellow that put my jake in my MCI 8 is near you in Ohio.  I will check with him and see if he can do the engine work - since he is retired.  As Jack says, running wires is relatively easy.

thanks, i saw it but i dont' have a 71.  apparently there are differences, so i'm not sure how much the set is worth cause some of it is not usable on my 92.  i'm waiting for songman to get me info?

and the jakes for the '71 which also had parts that would work for a 92 went for more than i bid.  if i could get a set for my needs for $700 from the local guy, then i figured ebay should be about $550.  nope, somebody that needed more went to about $600.

oh well.  sometimes sales works, sometime not.  i sold an inverter for a good price on ebay, but so far, haven't sold a brand new winegard antenna that is excess inventory at $200 below my cost.!!  gees.

Tom,

If the Weingard is that "bat wing" affair that cranks up and down.....that is one great antenna.  It also has a little "RF Pre Amp" in it that can be switched in or out.  The PA works really surprisingly well and lets you long distance TV stations.  The ability to turn the antenna lets you "focus" in on the one station you want.  Great  hardware and will work fine with the new digital signals.  I have had one for 18 years and wouldn't think of using anything else that is out there that I am aware of.

Good luck with your sale.  Oregonconversion is just starting to do his bus and might be in the market for a good antenna.

Jake information deleted because you can't answer a question about where to get something without some people thinking they are the internet police. Just trying to help out a bus nut who was looking for Jakes for months. The others of you who were asking will have to look on the Eagles International forum to get the information.
