Hello Jim and thank you for the info, TransWest received my parts today from BCS so my coach is headed into a repair bay tomorrow morning. The big problem was BCS would not give TransWest the manufactures part numbers so they could be cross referenced. Now that the parts are here, they are common parts that could have been found cheaper locally. I understand BCS wanting to keep these part numbers under wraps so they get the sale on the parts at a higher price, but it sure frustrates those waiting in repair lots for those parts to take a week to get there over ground shipping.

I ran into the same issue with BCS when I would try to get parts for my Beaver!

Well things are progressing, but ponderously slow, waiting is always the hardest part. I thought I'd send photos of the rotors, they sure aren't pretty.

Check out the cracks, I'm surprised no chunks broke out.

OK the brakes are done, BCS charged me $529.01 for each rotor, they can be had cheaper from Webb Wheel the part number is 51-W-1, the brake pads number is SD 225 by Federal Mogal. BCS was also going to charge me $228.01 for the wheel seals, they can be bought for $72.72 from National Seal part number CHR 38780

If any of you know any other Beaver owners out there let them know.

Cheers !!!

Wow! That's what it's like when you're the only game in town dealing with Beaver coaches. They do a booming business because people people think everything on these obsolete coaches are proprietary.
What could you have gotten the rotors and pads for from standard supplier? I would hazard to guess about $200 per rotor and about $60 for pads for a set.

Kinda leaves a bad taste!

Yes it kind of does, but This is how Beaver Customer Service stays in business, if I ever need these parts again I'll have the numbers needed to get them cheaper.
