Leslie Hoagland on the MCC:

http://www.barthmobile.com/eve...061/m/7641088061/p/2

posted 10-27-2004 07:45 PM

I am Leslie Hoagland, MOTOR COACH RESTORATION at Lincoln,Illinois: and I would like to clear up the misconceptions that I have noted on this forum.

The MCC Coach was primarily built for the 1981,1982, and 1983 model years BUT there is a least one 1985 Model. The MCC coach was a fiberglass coach and 45 were built. The MCC that went to the FMCA Denver Rally had the front steel wheel break and fell off in a turn or so I have been told by several who were in attendance at that Rally.

When MCC Corp. went bankrupt the Regency Corp. was formed and built the last seven MCC
Coaches .

Regency built 92 additional chassis from the time of the original 38 MCC Coaches - this fact comes from MCCmemos gotten when M.C.R. bought the MCC/Regeny brake and suspension tooling.

Our Steering and Suspesion modification for the FMC, MCC, and Regency chassis coaches is not about heavy duty. It is about replacing aged parts and new additions for ride and
driveability.

The MCC and Regency chassis were built for GVW at 20,000# but modified front spring and wheels when they found coaches weighed
22,000# or more.(Road Ready)

Our Steering and Suspension Modification is more about setup for when these coaches are setup properly they RIDE AND DRIVE LIKE A LUXURY SEDAN - WHICH IS NOT BRAG but fact.

Prices that we get for a FMC, MCC, or Regency Coaches may be to much for someone's budget - BUT the fact remains that the price is driven by the amount of Parts and Labor that are required for the project.

In conclusion, I repeat that the parts are not made to be more HEAVY DUTY but there has been upgrade for quality considering that 24 and 32 years have passed since original manufacture.

HAPPY TRAILS - LESLIE 800.786.1536

His website is still active
http://www.motorcoachrestoration.com/
116 W.Prairie St-Broadwell,IL62634

Although he has a website he is leery of using it

but didn't have a antivirus
and a baddy virus came along and wiped out his whole system Frowner

He much prefers to use the telephone....give him a call...
800-786-1536 or 217-735-1536
{his mother is the secretary/phone operator Frowner
leave a message and he will return your call!!
This is just a side line with him now,
as he has a FED EX delivery business full time.

MCC horns--
QUOTE: Not sure if mine are Jabsco, so this may not help, but I experienced a similar problem. I removed the back plate and cleaned out the air tubes which were blocked by spider and mud dauber nests. After being sure that I was now getting air into the horn, I removed the diaphragm and coated it with Vaseline, positioned it properly, then reassembled the back plate and - it worked!

MCC Alignment specs:

----Do not jack the coach to perform alignment!!!


>>>>>>There are five adjustments--

1. Prop shaft should be level.
Adjust the torsion bars to level front to rear.

2. Then adjust the torsion bars to level the coach front to rear.
Use the bumper ends to measure and adjust.
Obviously these two are related.

3. Camber on front wheels with full load and proper inflation for the exact weight of the axles.
Obviously you have to weigh the coach before aligning.
Adjust to -1 degree +or- .5 degrees.

4. Castor +2.5 degrees

5. Toe in is the same for the front and rear: 1/16" in on each wheel with a total of 1/8" in for both wheels.
For the rear wheels measure using a bar from the frame to the outside of the outer tandem wheel and adjust 1/16" in.
First of course both rear wheels have to be the same distance from the frame.
Adjust with the rear cam bolts located behind the wheels between the frame and the axles.
_______________

on alignment...

...there are a couple of generic specs that will work for 98% of vehicles - they are 1/8" toe in total with neither side exceeding 1/16" and -2 degrees camber. Castor for a basic truck should not exceed 5 degrees to the rear. Most truck alignment shops can easily look at the geometry of the axle/hubs and get you very close to a neutral and easy tracking alignment.
