Advice on how great an automatic is, is wasted - ain't going to happen.  I could care less how great they are when the cost is more than the bus is worth, and when I don't have the money in the first place.  A clutch booster, now that I know such a thing is possible and actually works, will cost be about $100.  That I can afford...

For me a rusty chassis would be a deal killer too, so I feel for you.  It can be a never ending labour.  Sorry it came to this for you.

We didn't resurface the drum.  In hindsight we probably should have.  Never thought about it till now

I have had enough.

To anyone that is thinking about getting an MCI.   Shop around, don't get the good deal right away.   You will find a good bus.   I am kind of to a point where I feel like i should just take the losses and stop dumping the insane amounts of labor and money into it.   Too rusty for my liking, underneath, in-between, in front of, around the back, all over.   So I am waving the white flag and am going to scrap it.   

I work at a facility that I can take it all apart at.  If you need a windshield i will have one, if you need the ac compressor i will have that too.   If you need anything steel it will probably be rusted and falling apart, you won't want that.   I have aluminum alcoa rims for front axel and rear tag. 

I made a poor decision BUT! I did learn how to weld, and rebuilt some small things.  It was a learning experience.   And I do know better for the future bus I may end up getting.

Thank you guys so much for your help and giving me information and leading me in the right direction.

Jack I tried but no answer each time I tried!
Trust me when I say I've checked almost every lead out there!
At the moment, an inspection is planned on one I'm interested in and I won't Persue any others until this one is a no go!

Ace, that last truck looks good.  There are two phone numbers in the listing, give him a call.

If the drum wasn't resurfaced when the new shoes were installed you may simply have glazed linings from uneven heating of the new lining.  The noise this will produce ranges from a squeal to a ratcheting sound of quite some volume.  Like Scott said, if it was mine i'd take it apart for a look see.  Sometimes you can solve the problem by sanding the glazed areas with 80 grit sandpaper while other times you will have to turn the drum as well.  Good luck!
