One wouldn't want to ruin Fontana, the garden spot of the USA! That's got to be the same yard I visited some months back. Lots of very cool machinery . . . "Need a little TLC". I'm already pushing the envelope here, or I'd store them for half of the daily $1000 fine.

Some interesting comments for sure!  Rust, I do not see that seeing how the chassis is stainless steel.  How is it that not one person noticed that engine is turbo engine?  Might be more gold there hiding to be mined!  John L

MCI's will rust with the best of buses people just don't talk about it  Grin Grin Grin I have had to send a 5 and 8 to bus heaven before because of rust and I have MCI 7 here now that needs to go too

If you don't like it, then keep your fu**ing mouth shut. People build things to their liking. It's none of your goddamn business. I know alot of you people want to sound like know-it-alls, but you're not all right. This is a perfect example of why I don't bother with this site much anymore. PURE IGNORANCE

Thanks, by  "Turn down" do you mean the down pipe from the turbo or the  exhaust tip?

In the mean time I have been doing some sleuthing here.  Called Donaldson, and they came to the same conclusion, this is the right muffler.  I'd recommend searching on eBay or Google shopping for one retail.

I also called C & J Bus repair, they did source a bunch more today and will have some in stock if anyone else needs one.

I recently replaced my MCI7 muffler with a Donaldson M120176, which has 5" inlet and outlet on same end.
I scored a new on the 'e' place for $100. I would gamble that yours is the same part number.

Fairly easy to install.....I had to make a new 5" turn-down to replace the 4" that was originally on the bus.

Might be a good candidate for Daveola's eng/trans donor! (he shouldn't have any problems convincing the code police or the judge it's a camper not a bus with this one!)

      To apply grease to the linkage, you use the distribution panel.  Next to each
      grease fitting, there is nomenclature stating what it is for.  The distribution
      panel is located in the service bay just under the drivers seat.
      Also, in the engine compartment there are more fittings at the end of
      each shift rod.  You will see them when you disconnect the rods at
      the trans.   Have you found the panel in the service bay?

                                                Good luck,  Merle.

I just got off the phone with C & J Bus repair in Bloomington, MN about a muffler.  Seems they are also trying to source these.

Also I just purchased my bus shell, so I've been getting used to everything.

I managed to back over part of a stump and what was left of my rusting  muffler cracked off, it was toast before, but now I know for sure.

I've been digging around, it seems like there is a company Donaldson that makes a variety of mufflers, but I'm not sure which would be the right one.  Maybe thats up to me to to fabricate  a workable one in there.

I've seen some posts reference a M120131 Donaldson MUFFLER , I don't think that's my current configuration.  Any ideas?

What does that "O" ring look like, and why can't you use a new style "O" ring that is impervious to diesel?  My Webasto was leaking out the exhaust after I cleaned it and put a new nozzle on it, and it was leaking from three places that all just needed tightening. Now that it is fixed I probably won't need it until next winter!


I actually haven't been able to find one that will fit the groove and is impervious to diesel. Granted I haven't exhausted all my search options.

Mine has leaked out the exhaust a lot, too. That's typical from leaking from the banjo fittings and the O ring in the pump. It gets into the exhaust pipe and smokes like hell when you turn it on. I thought I'd be clever and drilled a 1/8" hole in the elbow where it collects to let it drain but when I turned it on, I looked under the bus and saw sparks shooting out that little hole! So I plugged it with a screw. One more good idea that failed!  Roll Eyes
