Looks great Wayne, Good choices on wiring and connectors. We always figured at least a minimum of 10% for extra spares when building a component, the more the merrier. I can't wait to hear of the next phase of your New Eagle.

Oh, by the way, nice picture posting! ;)

That's a real precision work with all that wires. I'm impressed.

Wayne ,there was never any doubt in my military mind that that you could pull it off,what with the tight work space you have up there in the the high altitude and all :lol: .I love wiring,can't wait to build my harness :twisted: ,heads up display,thermal imaging,forward looking radar ,yea buddy ,I got some nifty Idea's I'm gonna toy around with :shock: ;) .
Very good work on the schematic ,looks like your feet were firmly planted in it's design,can't wait to see the cabinetry you have planned for the new girl,Cherry? we go ga ga for cherry :D

hey wayne any chance that you could make me up a a wire harness that would plug into my n-14 wire harnesss and a rear wire panel like the one you made for yourself or would know of anyone who could make me one

Papa, Sorry I am not the one you want to build your wire harness. First off it took me about 6 months to figure out my 60 seires. I know nothing about your motor. Also I can't find enough time to do my own stuff. I have heard of others that do wire harness but I can not remember who they are. I made up my mind that I was going to do all the work on my 15 so I did not record who these people are. Someone will read this and post who can build you a wire harness. Thank you for the vote of confidence.

Good Luck Wayne

Compressor Post#9 Dash Air ( rear components ), Coach battery tray, Bed lift cylinder.
Air conditioning in this bus has one of the highest priorities. The AC in the 05 is not as good as it can be and that makes the Boss unhappy on hot days. This bus you will be able to hang meat in it. The dash air is made up of mostly Red Dot components. The compressor was on the motor when I bought it. From what I can tell it should run the system just fine. The condenser is # R77R0700 and the evaporator is #R9520-OP with 33,000 btu's of cooling. ( more about the evaporator on a latter post).
Jim Shepard helped me with the pullys that run every thing. I made a 2 1/4 inch shaft that bolts to the crankshaft. The reason for the shaft is so I can use industrial pullys as they are easier to get. The only proplem is the compressor uses an eight groove pully that is an automotive pully. I had a friend turn down a v-belt pully and machine grooves that match the commpressor.
The condenser is mounted in the old condenser bay on the rear curb side of the bus. I am using two 14 inch electric fans to cool the condenser. The air will be drawn in from the side the bus and exhausted thru the rear of the engine compartment. I am a little conserned about the pressure from the engine fan being to great for the fans to work. The CFM from one of the fans is enough to cool the condensor. With two I hope to overcome the pressure and to have redundancy.
The Coach batteries ( three group 31's ) are mounted in the old condensor bay. I did not but them on a slide. The reason for this is on the 05 they are on slides, but the longer they are used the harder they are to roll out. I hope as time goes on my Grandsons don't get mad at me and are around to lift the battries out.
The bed in the 05 with all the insulation and trim pieces got heavy. Six years ago I was able to lift the bed. As time goes on it is getting heavier for some reason ( not because it is getting wet, it is because I am getting older). To fix the problem I installed a three stage hydraulic cylinder to lift the bed. It has it's own hydraulic system that will act as a backup for the leveling system.

Wayne,

I saw your Photobucket pics earlier and was trying to figure out what the cylinder was for , now I know.

I am always amazed at the work you are doing, along with good ideas you are incorporating.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us.

Wayne,

I am a little concerned about the amount of space between your condensor and the fans. Will that space be a sealed compartment? I assume you are drawing air from the side where the old condensor door was and exhausting it out the back. I am not sure that you will get enough air flow across the condensor to keep the head pressure down. Also, will the compartment in front of the condensor be sealed off from the engine so that you will not draw any engine heat through the condensor? What freon will you have in this unit? Remember, R-22 has great cooling capacity but runs much higher head pressures and thus the cooling on the condensor unit will be more critical.

I don't want to appear to be critical of what you are doing, just want it to work to the optimum performance it was designed for. You have absolutely excellent work and craftsmanship and should be commended for it.
