Not many 8V92s survive the coolant hoses blowing.
What happens is all of the coolant dumps instantly,and guess what?
The gauges don't show the heat,no coolant on the bulbs means no info is sent to the gauge.
Cracked heads and galled pistons result.
But,everyone here can see your in love with this coach.
Have another 25 grand available,just in case...

It was a slow leak, till I touched the hose! You could pull it out in pieces with your bare hands.

Thanks for that!

Id be careful about that one. When I bought mine I didnt know that a hose had let go. It was 10k miles before things went south.

An inframe took care of all that, but it sure hurt!

Im not sure how to determine if there was damage or not without getting inside and taking a look. YMMV ;}

Heres what the sleeves looked like... They really got hot!


HTH, Joe

Your already on the side of the road and you didn’t even buy the coach yet, yeah I’d say bad omen.

Joe’s coach is a beautiful well know Bird. You’d be getting a way better deal buying his, even with flying down and picking it up and a coach with no salt. You must know what salt does living in the rust belt, getting a no salt vehicle is priceless. Call Randy, I’m sure he can answer your questions on it and tell you it’s the real deal. Definitely biggest old alligator that I've ever seen.

I have seen a few coaches from the rust belt that had obviously been driven in salt, so it is something to be aware of. However, I wouldn't automatically rule out a Bird just because it's from the rust belt. I suspect that the vast majority of Birds from the rust belt have never been driven on a salty road. While we were Ohio residents, our birds were either tucked away for the winter or camped somewhere nice and warm until spring. Not exactly a daily driver back and forth to work for most owners.
