Air Leak, Help.....
« on: February 02, 2007, 10:02:23 AM »
 I run an 1981 Eagle Model 10. There is an air leak in the dohickeys by the battery switches. The air lines come into this compartment and go through these 3 inch long by 1 inch in diameter (est.) things. I can feel the leak but need to know what these things are called so I can go get new ones. Thanks
Thanks, Robert at www.tamihall.com

I don't know about that but I just reviewed Tami's web page and Robert is the proud Eagle driver as part of his duties I believe. If you guys ever get to West "by god" Virginia, i would love to catch your act.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

 I believe what you are talking about are saftey valves.  Plus it's where you put shop air into the bus. I think one was for the waste dump. they are called valve saftey check  eagle part # 054-1257-504  I hope this what you are talking about.
Bendix has it also Part # 800375.

Robert,
Is there anychance you could take a photo of the parts your trying to identify and post it to the board? Or if you can't resize it enough to get it to post, you can send it to me or one of the other moderators and we'll be glad to do it for you.

This is a little OT since Robert knows where his leaks are.  Back eons ago when Freon 22 was cheap, we would charge the air system with Freon and use a sniffer to find small leaks. It would find leaks that even soap would miss.
I used the same process in the sixties, installing pressurized waveguide on microwave towers.  We would pressurize to as little as 5-6 lbs and find the smallest leaks.
