Title: Need eyes in Mansville Ohio
Post by: mak on May 02, 2006, 09:14:05 AM
I have a bus (102 C3 MCI)  in a shop in Mansville OHIO, (44903) that I need someone to look at for me. Anybody know of anybody in that area that I can hire to take a look and see for me? Just need a pair of eyes to look, make sure it's still there.  Please call Mike at 562 972 2158 or email me at mike@motorcabin.com. Thanks

Do you mean?
Mansfield, OH 44903, US
That’s a little more than 500 miles from me.

Hi,
Do you mean Mansfield Oh. or Mainsville Oh.   I am about 150 mi. from Mainsville Oh. but I am about 40 mi from Mansfield Oh.  Mainsville is just a dot on the map but Mansfield  is a city of about 65000 pop.  Hope this helps

Hey Mike I got a super nice and awesome bus mechanic about an hour south of there! Also I'm gonna be up in that area at the end of the month killing time while waiting on a charter coming back from New York City on a charter (driver swap out), I'd be happy to look in on it then (could even varify status for ya), or I can call John and ask him to take a spin for ya. Give me a call 731-885-7460 Bryce Gaston Aka Busted Knuckle

By the way I verified it as Mansfield, OH by the zip code you gave.

Just looked up Croswell VIP Motorcoach, on E. 5th Ave.  The location appears to be where the old Greenlawn Tours shop was.  Maybe they just changed the name to Croswell.  I'll phone John to see what he can do for re-rigging my air powered belt tightener on the 8V92.
Thanks for the info Bryce.

Thanks for the help. One of the readers "Denis" went out and checked out bus in mansiefld, it's still there! he got me photo's so I guess I'll put it on ebay next week... unless somebody out there wants a pretty good deal on a MCI 102C3 (1992) with a bad 8V92 and a good 500 hp 8V92 sitting next to it to be installed.  Thanks for all the help!

Cool Mike,

You're still a newbie and you own the board!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kinda interesting the value of the system.  I've read some real bummer posts made just to move the poster up.

Hope the board gets to where information and help like your post is most important

yup, I'm a newbie.  I kinda feel bad sometimes for not writing more... but I have the 4 young kids (4 baseball games a saturday 2 1/2 hours each.... 8 to 12 year olds)  and the lovely wife and the Moose Creek Motorcabin and very little time. The other  "problem" kinda is that I started the magazine over 15 years ago... and I think you still install the toilet the same as you did (or I did) 15 years ago.... so it's hard for me to keep writing the same story on how to install the toilet.  If you get my drift.  I'm glad that so many people find the board helpful. It amazes me every time I have a problem or in need of information or finding a part or a driver or whatever that I place a note on this board and I get the inforamtion, help and answers quick,. It really is a great tool.
Enjoy your bus and hopefull I'll get past the newbie thing... some day.
