I had an opportunity to salvage a crashed Eagle conversion and wasted no time to compleat the task. Although this Eagle was severely damaged I was able to remove two drive axle torsion bars, drums and hubs, two bogie wheel torsion bars, drums and hubs, two fuel tanks and three Alcoa aluminum 24.5 wheels. The price tag for these parts was my time and labor with a little clean up work, sounds like a good deal right.
This was the situation, the bus was located on an abandoned railroad right away in northeast PA. It rested practically flat on the ground with very little of the lower frame from the rear luggage bay forward remaining intact. The only available resource was a water hose used to put out the inevitable fires from the cutting torch. after an entire day of clearing the four foot high weeds and some small trees the jacking and blocking operation began. The best way to describe jacking a twisted and broken tubular frame is like trying to jack up a pile of coat hangers.
