87' MCI 102A3 - getting there...

« on: April 09, 2006, 08:00:58 PM »

Question - I have found an air connection in the rear of the bus.  Nothing is connected to it.  Would this be where an air compressor could be connected to pump air into the bus system?

Thanks - as always...

Danny a little more info would be helpfull in giving you a correct answer on this! If you can follow the line and it T's into the main line coming out of the compressor before the main line goes to the air drier yes it is "assumed" to be a good location! I say "assumed" because I'm not sure where the line you refer to is located or where it actually goes! Knuckle! Cool

On an MCI typically there is a couple of valves located in the RH upper rear service door, curb side. You can install an air chuck into the system and air up the whole bus. If a valve is present, it may have to be opened. Be sure that an air dryer is between the bus and shop air supply. You only want dry air. Set the regulator to knock off at about 110 lbs of pressure. 120 is max, but don't want to take chances. Never overinflate your coach.
You will also find an air fill valve inside the upper front washer service door....beneath the driver.
They will both air up the bus completely.
There are also 2 valves on the upper RH engine service door area that may control your tag axles. You may have dash control over them also. You should familiarize your self with the tag axle inflation valves...or manual inflation valves. If you have tag axles?

Or vise versa. On my bus, these convenience fittings can be used to supply air if the bus pressure is up, or you can connect a compressor to them & pump into the bus.

BTW, wouldn't it be nice if one day there were sufficient bus conversions on the road that parks would plumb in compressed air to at least some sites??
