I don't have any helpful info but maybe the bump will help.  TomC is probably the best contact in LA as he is dialed into the shops around the area.

If you don't find a part or a shop; do you have the time to take the 101 to LA?  The 101 will get you to the cooler temps sooner. 

This time of year the morning temp on the 101 is in the 50's and the 70's on the 5 in the inland valley.  Currently it is 91 in Bakersfield on the 5 and 72 in Paso Robles on the 101.  The driver will cook in the sun regardless of the road however, the 20 degree difference will help the passengers.

MCI has a service center in Los Alamitos, CA.  No idea how close that is to Anaheim.  Certainly not the least expensive option, but if you need the repair done in a hurry.

Got it all taken care of due to a real great Bus Nut, George, used his shop and grit tp get an old pile of rust condenser motor out, more rust buster to get the pulley off.  Had to saw the pulley of and press the old couple off then make new godies to remoun the fan.. George then turned his guages loose on the AC system and we got it cooling great.  We are on the way back to Portland now and the passengers have asked me to turn the a/c down a couple of times. 

Great job to all pf you that helped and especially George who gave up a Saturday to help !
