Cowboy Coach Andy & Eileen Wright's 1968 Model 5

This is a public forum. This forum will be a place to show your Project Eagle and updates on progress you have made. Please make one thread with your project and put all updates in the same thread. Sorry... Eagles only.


Andy, if you want to get rid of the cooler in the rear I have a couple of factory coolers that go on the engine.
I have never been a fan of that setup Allisons need to run close to engine temp and always need to be at least 160 degrees min.
Don't you just love it when I tell you these things LOL

OK, I must admit I'm pretty stupid when it comes to this subject. I do know that one day when my linkage wears out I'll have to do something.

Can you give us the lowdown on how you achieved such a good result?

Or can I even do this on our 8v71?

Well Paul you are not alone in not knowing how to do this and yes you can do this to your 8 71 , The hardest part was getting the old peddle out lol and of course the cost of the Items . It's pretty straight forward . Air to the peddle from the peddle a line back to the modulator tee off with each tee lenth the same lenth. I was able to position my modulator in line with my govornor and Ijust had to built a mounting plate to mount the modulator. the trans modulator was easy to remove and install the new one . On yours with the 4 speed all you need is the throttle modulator and air line and peddle . I got my peddle from Ron the Bus nut for 127.00 including shipping and you can scrounge around in some of those texas wrecking yard for a throttle modulator mostly on the pold cab over garbage trucks .

Andy, I appreciated you taking the time to explain. It looks pretty straight forward, so I'll give it some thought.

Thanks again my friend! 8-)
