Ok my road air or what ever it is called does work. But I am getting ready to remove it to make room in the engine bay area for a generator and to remove the factory poo tanks.

Is the set up worth anything? Worth trying to sell?

Don't know how universal the compressor and fan motors etc are but I have made a bundle off of mine. Got $300 for compressor- 300 for each fan motor(2ea)- and 300 for evaporator and  $300 for condensor.  probably 20% of what they were worth if buyer would have to have purchased else where.=====$1500 for supplies. New condensor fan motor is 2600$   didn't include blades or housing.  keep hoses also.    Bob

They changed the AC on the newer model Eagles your will be worth scrap price not much of a demand for the older Eagle units does that unit have a shaft drive or belt drive on the compressor

good luck

I gave my stuff away, it was to much to even try and store it. we ripped it all out of the bay also. be sure to disconnect the 2 hot leads coming from the electrical. Wink

Not an Eagle, but I got about $200 for my compressor.  Welch Industries was buying them for about $250, but shipping would have killed that.  I got a couple hundred for my condenser and evaporator at the scrap yard.  Most or all of my condenser motors were bad which is why the A/C didn't work.

Wanted to add :: I am no Eagle Guy.  They are beautiful.  I know little about them.  Just have found not to throw anything away.  Have more than tripled my purchase price of the salvage shell I purchased by selling parts I would not use. Used that money to buy missing parts and conversion parts.  All a pleasant surprise. Still selling parts I didn't use off MCI's I had 15 yrs ago and the 89 prevost I didn't use during conversion.  Never thought they would be worth anything.  Good luck  Eric.

Eric,
Might check & see if Sodrell (Free Enterprise System Charter Co) still has any Eagles or place on Ebay and list here on this board in spare parts section as well as on BNO and the Eagles boards too.

Ya never know there might be some operator out there is still running Eagles that would like to have spare parts.

Or maybe even someone with a conversion still running OTR might be looking to stock up parts.

I know I just found some old stock brand new *Henry* T-type Drier filters the other day that I didn't remember I even had. Best I recall they were for an Eagle. I'm going to find out for sure and be listing them soon myself.

Make a trade deal with Welch.  Your Junk for a working dash air off your engine using a small compressor.

Made a deal with Welch Industries for a dash AC in the 1984 Eagle 10 that we had for 10 years. They took out all of the AC parts that they wanted and put me in a nice dash unit. We took it back to Maine and never used it. We need heat not AC up here most of the time. Worked great. This was about 9 years ago.

 In Sordell's Eagle's the dash air worked off the cabin AC unless it was changed he never would have done that, he is a stickler for no changes on his buses but he hasn't owned a model 10 since 1994 his buses were sought after big time 

good luck
