So my stick on wheel weights dropped today while parked. What's the best option for wheel balancing? Not a fan of beads because it seems to take miles to get them to balance out. Not a fan of sticking wheel weights on because apparently they fall off. Can I request they clip them on? Ignore my daughter in these pics. She's enamored with the chrome. You can see the lead weights just laying on the inside dish of the rim.

When you're serious about a specific bus, get an experienced eye to check it out for you.

 2 strokes mechanics are really not that hard to find,good ones are sometimes though depending on what area you are in.
The advantage the 2 strokes had for years was the price for a overhaul and you could rebuild one and install it and kick the throttle wide open without any break in period,  those days are gone parts are expensive it is nothing now to spend 20 to 30+k on rebuilding one.
Then you always have the heating problem if not careful and chasing that friggin 40w engine oil.
I love my 2 strokes next to the 3406-425 hp CAT the 8v92TA was the best engine made in their day IMO but find you a conversion with a series 60 -12.7 non EGR engine and you won't regret it.
Cummins builds a good engine now it the old days we would spell Cummins Com-a-part,the IH 466 without a EGR is a good engine the EGR models are nightmare,and some CAT engines have problems to ,but the series 60 without the EGR have a proven track record

  As a NON MECHANIC,,why would you even consider a BUS???  There are so many late model motorhomes with all the amenities and ready to go with modern day engines, transmissions,suspensions,brakes,and parts and support facilities that are available all over the country...Make your life a lot easier and stay modern,, the very question you asked is the reason for my response.>>>Dan

  The newest you can afford and if they say its been rebuilt get proof in writing. Check date codes on tires also...Good Luck   

     Can't agree more with Dave.  *Far* more important than the kind of engine is the maintenance that an engine has had and the care and expertise put into its most recent rebuild (and you have to expect to get an engine that's been rebuilt (or had major repairs/overhaul) sometime in its life.  Also, note TomC's comment of availability of support for older engines.  When you're buying an engine, you're buying the shape that it's in now and you're buying the need for maintenance, support, and repairs you'll need in the future.

The 2 stroke Detroits-71 and 92 series-are getting harder and harder to find anyone to work on them. Highly recommend you fine a bus with a 4 stroke engine like the Detroit Series 50 or 60, Cummins or Cat engine. You'll get better fuel mileage also. Good Luck, TomC
