Shawn, I looked at the production number data we have on the site, and can not find your number. I suspect you did the same search. I was looking just for the 31094 rather than the full number: 1EUAN8B19D8031094. Before the government required a 17 digit VIN number, all vehicle manufacturers used their own numbering systems. Eagle used 4 or 5 digit numbers for many years.

After I figured out that yours was a 17 digit VIN I went back and we still don't have a listing. The two sources we have (Bowman and Richards) don't list later models. Joe (Richards) has sent me a lot of amazing data data and I try to publish anything he sends. I went back and did not find that he sent me anything for Eagles newer than 1980.

As far as the Torsilastics, I am not an expert, but I have seen worse. While extruding rubber can be a signal of a failure, the other thing to look for is cracks in the steel tube.

Keep us posted on what you find.

I did purchase it and got it running and drove it home. We have removed most of the interior and bus air. We are slowly picking at the little things on it.

Don't throw away the coach air!!!

There's a recent thread or two on here discussing that idea. The consensus was to keep it.
