1984 Regency Rotors

My family and I have owned our 1984 Regency for a little over 5 years now and have enjoyed it more than we ever thought we would. When we purchased it the coach had been sitting for 2 years, the roof was leaking, tires were dry rotted, and the batteries had been stolen out of it. It has been a lot of work but well worth it.
Unfortunately, I have now stumbled onto an issue that I need some help with. While installing new brake pads front and rear I found that one of the rear brake rotors has heat cracks starting in it and will need replaced soon. The only source for these rotors that I have been able to find is Motor-coach restoration. Unfortunately, they are out of them and have no intention of having any more made.
Obviously this leaves me with a serious problem. I have scoured the internet and found rotors that look similar but no one can help identify them with the numbers that I have or the measurements off them. While I have the ability and resources to put together something that will work I would much rather find the correct part and just bolt it on.
So, does anyone here have any suggestions? Got a spare brake rotor sitting around you want to sell? Know where there is a junkyard full of old Barths? Anything??

Thanks in advance.

Are the rotors beyond the minimum thickness? If not then have them cut and use them.
Or who built the chassis? GM?
They should be easy to source.

The Regencies of that era were all 35 ft and were on the MCC chassis. They had 8.2 L GM 4 stroke diesels, prone to overheating. They also had independent torsion bar suspensions with great ride.

After about 86 Barth Regencies were built on the Gillig or Spartan chassis. These are still being supported by their companies, as are the GM P30 series (to some extent)

The early Regencies were excellent coaches but were plagued by engine and suspension issues. Availability of suspension parts, esp front end is a problem.

These were truly orphans among the Barth orphans.

Good luck gbrown. Mechanic

RVS in Morgan Hill CA is no longer in business,I think there is a place in Hayward CA that might be still in business that serviced FMC coaches, next time up there I will check them out.

Thanks for the response. The Kodiak brakes look very similar, I'll to do some research on them. I think this is going to turn into a "that looks close enough" project.

I think MCR is out of stock also. Good luck.

Let us know if the Kodiak stuff can work. All the MCC guys would love to know where to find them. Thumbs Up
