So the adventure begins lol. Bought a fully converted 05 eagle in denver for extremely cheap. Only catch is that it doesnt run. Im betting itll run the 4hrs home with a little help. What do you guys think?

I figured youd be pretty close wayne. All the systems look pretty complete....

Im thinking batteries fuel filters and top off the oil? And she'll fire up?

If engine is seized or something like that it will require a bit more $$$ to get it back lol

A lot depends on how long it has been sitting. It obviously needs batteries, but you need to check the condition of the cable connections, especially the ground connection above the batteries on the chassis. It will likely need to be primed to get the fuel flowing. Unless there is a mechanical fault, a 8V71 should get going again. I started one after it had set for 12 years, but it took a while to get it sorted out.

That bus has set there for at least a year. I only drove by it and did not stop and look. It does set low. I don't know if there is adjustment left. It should be a good parts bus.

Mason, if you do plan to stop by Wayne's place on the way back to Nebraska, I would love to meet you there.  Hopefully we can get it coordinated.

Headed to Denver tomorrow. Hopefully we'll be there before noon. 

Should be a good time ;)

Jim, best way to get in touch with me is text. I just texted Wayne letting him know. It should work out to meet at Wayne's place.
