Wow Pesche! Just saw this picture on your Facebook profile...

I gotta know more about that! That's either a really big generator or some kind of engine that I have never seen in an Eagle before!

Ah...You Dont Need A Reserve Wheel Anyway.
It Takes Real Big Arms To Throw A Wheel On A Bus.

So How Does Itchyfeet Run? GOOD? & How Is The Power?... FAST? or SLOW?

I Think Your Bus Looks..VERY COOL I Like It.

GREAT JOB. 10-4

Hi John,
i am miles behind your Bus. Hope end of 2010 he will be ready for testdrives. At moment i am happy, he does drive, one Year ago was no engine in.

Think it will be not the fastest Bus (but the fastest Eagle in Switzerland, its the only one :D ) but its more importent, he is nice at the gas station with me. Here is 1 Gallon Diesel over 10$. The Tax somewehre over 3000$/year and the insurance clims more when i like him more.

So i think, the way will be the destination...

but belive me, if i will go one day for a long trip to the USA, i will take 500hp :P :ugeek:

After two Years with up and downs we work on Itchy again. We did the back half of the old floor out and all the old cables from old engine too.

On this picture you see, the floor is gone.
Image
We get a second little helper too, she is one Year jung now.

The new under floor is in and the bed is there wehre it have to go. Now need to built a frame like Cindy.
Image
And the cable need to go under floor, but not sure where they have to go in front.

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Hello to Australia,
its right, from where you know my bus?

when i get them, the old owner where bring them to Switzerland, did the DD out, because to renew the Engine would cost more than a Mercedes Engine. we got the bus whit a hole in back and one day a Volvo Bus, the rest is history. In Switzerland is Diesel not cheap and the law about nature strict, so i will run better anyway.

You get a Eagle Bus in Australia? Remember there was once on in Ebay Australia, think did a post over them.
If you have a bus there, are you alone ore some other Eagle Bus around?

Once upon a time
Image
we had a mountain of cables.
Image
and we not trust them. But with hard work
Image
we got them on the place where we like them.
Image

Image
okay, this picture is cheating, the power come direct from batteries and not over the Board. But i know witch cables are for witch light, now is it just plug and play.

With help from Clifford i get a other Milestone too.
Image
and a part from Boomers Bus will make our bus looking nice too.
Image
Thanks to Clifford and Mark.

But the greatest thing from today,was a surprise. I need to remove a air tank because i like to get the batteries there. The full air system did i built new when i did the engine in, in April 09. As i press the button on the tank for let the water out the system, there was some pressure on. I check all 5 tanks and all the same, soft pressure. The amazing on this, i let the bus last time run before the 15. Julie 2009, over
25 a half month ago.
Guess i did the job right then.
