Hi All,

To answer a few of the questions yes it is a NJT bus with the white numbered wiring :-\ and yes it is from Las Vegas, B&B Coach works to be exact and Gary helped me with the stock air, window removal, and siding. (See pics) So far we have taken it Snow Canyon, UT on a shake out run we boondocked for 2 days with no trouble, except for no hot water we had a great time. I have no idea about the MCI NJT buses heck I hardly have an idea about the Eagle NJT ::). Anyway I'll keep everyone updated on the progress and looking forward to hearing from you all.

Thank You,

Ford Forager aka: James

Len it is a NJT Eagle they did make a real Model 20 for others LOL those Eagles were built just for NJT with the factory air installed in the back cap kind ugly huh but they are a good bus.JR does your MCI have all white wiring like the NJT Eagle ?

good luck

Nope.  Got all black wiring.  All feeds are black, and ground wires are white.   The only way to ID the wires is to find the stamped tags or imprinted numbers on each wire.   My wiring is in good condition so this isn't an issue...it is on coaches that have had "repairs" done to the wiring. 
The ATEC and DDEC are Detroit factory harnesses and are color coded and numbered.   The DDEC/ATEC wiring is the only color coded wiring on my MC9.
I don't know what all is altered on an Eagle, but NJT coaches are typically a good bit different from standard models.  Wheels, tires, brakes, wiring, AC, kneeling system, air system, fuel tank filler, primer system, Vanner, DDEC settings, are all NJT specified.  Oh yeah, and the air dryer! 
I'd highly recommend anyone that buys an ex-NJT try to find an NJT parts and service manual for their coach
It'll save a lot of time when sorting our air or wiring problems.   Since an Eagle 20 would be a DDEC II (?), the wiring would be similar to an MCI 102C?  Maybe?

That's a fantastic picture. My first thought was Photoshop, but having looked again I'm thinking that bus actually was covered in something like nylon fur fabric with rope lighting beneath. If so, I want one!

The bus is a Bristol ECW I think

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Yup, looks like a Series 3 VR.   I've ridden plenty a mile in them.   Is it at Burning Man?   I wonder if it's painted with luminescent paint, or something that glows under UV, or perhaps it's Dupont Imron with added LSD?

Butt of course I noticed, so I turned the other cheek.   It cracks me up.   Though I still like big double-deckers, such as a nice pair of Bristols.

 Here is a pic of our bus. It's a 1983 Bluebird Forward Control (front engine), 250 hp 3208 Cat turbo.  It is named for it's weight,  pretty near 32,000 lbs. We don't go up hill very fast ;D

Our 1981 MC-9.  8V-71 with the 4 speed manual transmission.  The shell work is nearly complete and hopefully we can begin working on the inside soon.
