Vern didn't mention that he used to be a car salesman or a lawyer did he? You might see if you can get with Lorna Schinske in Roswell, NM she has lots of good advice, maybe she take you under her wing if and when she has the time. You could possibly
PM her. Just saying.

I got some pix of her how do I post them?

Her motor is up front, near driver.

When I started all this it was days after my fiance's kids left me without a home, my son came and picked me and what little I had left, and took us back to Texas where he.was living, we talked about the bus ideal, he really liked it and planned on helping me with her as he is a mechanic, but sadly within 2 weeks of me paying for her, his p.o. revoked his probation and he was sent to prison for 20 years. Right now I am living on his land, in an old army tent, with no running water.

Eastcoast I am not getting them options on my phone, sitting inside the shop my bus is at, sleeping in her at night as long as she isn't inside being worked on, once she goes in I am out of a place to sleep. Can I email you the pix and get you to post for me?

A bus that old, it could be something simple as a link in the clutch broke.

Do you still get resistance when you press the clutch peddle?

Did you crawl under the bus and make sure the drive shaft is still in one piece?

Start with the simple stuff. The engine still runs, so that's a good thing.

I know nothing about that drive train, but it could just be a slave cylinder or the equivalent.

Good luck

Nat

The drive shaft was fine, the clutch peddle felt good not to soft or hard, goes into gear just won't go anywhere, and it is odd to me that he insisted that the slave cylinder takes power steering

Did you check for leaks? The slave cylinder may have it's own reservoir that has become empty. This would explain why you got that far before failure.

Even with no clutch, a manual push pull style clutch can still be pulled into first gear, the bus started, then power shifted using no clutch in every gear there after. I had to do this with the tree spade truck on our farm last fall to bring it home.

Seems there was someone else here recently with a VERY similar problem. I'll see if I can dig up that thread.
