I finally have my bus home in running condition!
In late Feb I purchased a 1985 Eagle Model 10 that was partially converted.† Before purchasing I had the engine & trans inspected by a "reputable"
† DD shop
and came away with a clean bill of health.† I had a 170 mile trip home and approx 75 miles into the trip the 6V92T decided to belch oil & coolant on the highway.† Long story short, I've been working with a local mechanic to repair the engine and after replacing 1 head, 1 piston, 1 liner, the turbo and misc parts we are up & running.
I plan to continue improving the mechanical status/driving comfort of the coach before diving too deep into the conversion.† Currently there is no air/defrost/heat in the drivers area.† AIR:
I have 3 roof airs and the previous owner says that the front unit will keep the drivers area cool, but I've not confirmed this yet.† Is anyone else setup this way?† HEAT/DEFROST:
Are there heater lines in the drivers area that come from the engine?† Would it be best to tap into this if available or
install an automotive-type unit under the dash?
All feedback is appreciated.
