There should be a serial number on your clutch if you take the inspection plate off. I ordered my clutch right from napa, no problems. Went right in. It was harder finding someone to turn the flywheel then it was to find a clutch

The problems you are most probably having in regards to finding the correct clutch is the clutch in your bus is NOT going to be the same as what was in a car or light truck. It most likely is much larger. You will be best served by taking the old clutch, cover, and throw out bearing with you to the parts store so they can actually see what you have.

You may have to consider refacing the flywheel if it has been damaged from being stuck to the clutch face.
Yes I agree with all of that I found this place called hr clutch and they actually specialize in clutches and they had an old catalog that they were able to find my bus in may I'm going to take pictures and measurements of everything before I order the clutch so that it is they right one they are pretty sure they have it in Stock but would be able to manufacture one for me if they dont. They could also get me a new fly wheel but I would most likely just get it resurfaced. I do think this engine will be great it needs some things to be running at its best but from what I have learned it is a great motor.

I'm moving it to a family members house that is a couple miles down the road. Until we can get it fixed and my dad is going to drive it there. The clutch engages a little bit but not much at all

Right on girl. You're an inspiration! I've been following and glad to see you found a place to park it. I'm in upstate NY in Orange County.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get it all worked out. I was a single Mom for 10 yrs and they were our happiest years.

Why is that? Isn't it still awesome that a young little family is doing all of this together?

Oh of course, I'm just teasing. Did you get your bus moved?

Yes it was an all day adventure because sometime in the last week or so someone (I have an idea as to who it was but no proof, most likely our ex room mate that we kicked out he's the only person that we have any issues with or ever have had any issues with) had put something in our gas tank and it took us a bit to figure out, once we did we had to syphon all the gas out which it had a full tank and we cleaned the lines and put new gas in it. Then we were able to move it. I'm going to be replacing spark plugs tomorrow and fixing and exhaust leak. Then my mechanic is coming over Thursday to start doing the clutch get down to the bottom of the problem and get what we need, after that we should be on our hopefully in the next couple of weeks
