Events & Clubs / Car Show/Club Meeting
« Last post by Still Pat on Today at 10:35:41 AM »
IF anybody's in the St. Louis area & interested, Gateway AMC Club is having this month's meet at the train museum (The National Museum of Transportation) is the full/legal name. I always called it 'train museum' because they had a train right by the entrance where we unloaded the kids (I used to drive school bus). Most people just call it the Transportation Museum I think. Anyway, just a thought. No entry fee, no prizes either. Just a chance to show off your AMC & meet some folks. I'm planning to try to be there, will be my first time trying this car show thing. First time I've had one show worthy. BlackBird certainly wasn't & White Eagle wasn't there either. See what happens. Musta goofed somewhere, THOUGHT if I listed it on the calendar, it'd post the date on it. It's next Sun. (3 June, 2018). Guy I talked to said he thought it started at 10:00 A.M.

Just found out they (train museum) have a wiki page!

Seems to have been a popular paint scheme. I've seen at least 3 or 4 others on spacebook like it.

That's a pretty decent Eagle. I had one exactly like it, and even visited Brandon years ago with it. There are photos somewhere of the "twins", but may not be accessible because of the photobucket issue......Rich

EDIT:  Found it!

Now, I FINALLY have a decent (just needs a little 'fine tuning') Eagle, thanks Brandon! '83 wagon, 258/auto. Here's one 'modification I've had done. Buddy of mine made up that panel & installed it with MECHANICAL gauges for me last summer. Did a bunch of other stuff, too. That's the only visible change. Swapped out the font seats, adjusted the back hatch, replaced both mirrors with actual Eagle remote mirrors (he had 'a few'  ;D choice words  :censored: about the passenger's side) and other stuff. Said he had to take the entire dash out just to run the cable. Forgot to post pics. of it. Lemme try this again!

Approx. 1 week from now (Sat., May 2). Planning to go down for the Bigfoot Open House again. Went last year, pretty cool My buddy's gonna have his monster truck in the competition this year, last year he was there but didn't compete. If it'll fit in the back of an Eagle wagon, I can haul it. Lemme know.

That light is working properly. It is a dual function light. It not only tells you that your emergency brake is applied but also if there is a difference in brake pressures between the front & rear lines. Your foot going to the floor indicates you have air in the lines. Even after bleeding the brakes properly that light may stay on due to the differential switch in the Combination Valve staying stuck. Sometimes that switch can be moved & the light will go off by slamming your foot into the brake pedal a few times.

anytime you replace a brake component that has fluid in it you have to bleed all the brakes otherwise you're never going to get all the air out because the tricky thing about air it will move to lines you didn't mess with and with the eagle system you want to start at the driver's rear go to the passenger rear next then the passenger front and then the driver's front because the eagle rear axle is backwards as far as brake lines go

What causes the dashboard brake light to stay lit when the engine is running and the emergency brake is off?  Is it a pressure check on the brake hydraulics?

I just replaced my front calipers and rotor and bled the front brakes.  They seem to be working (kinda), but the pedal goes almost to the floor before there's any braking action, and the dashboard light stays on.

I tried to be careful not to get air in the lines going to the back brakes, but it's certainly possible that I did.  Could that cause my symptoms?

Thanks to all,

I PM you but you didn't reply. Are you still posting & are you still making the louvers?

You may want to try shooting him an email directly.  His email address is included in his profile.  Good luck!!
