Re: 67665

Shame to see another one go, especially 665 as it goes well. Let's see how long it takes them to find reverse ☺

Re: "Refreshed 144" !

No major failures so far, but 4 of them have had the heating system fail on the journey from Leicester, one has needed a new fuel pump and a couple of them have managed to get scraped and dented.

Re: 33402

DD 12, I like to paint my engine rebuilds as I still have pride in my work. Purple ( or as it's officially known Olympia Red) is my current favourite flavour πŸ˜ƒ

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

It won't happen overnight though as things are really busy with sorting out the green Volvos that are arriving with certain issues and need to go into service quickly.
Been busy building and fitting an engine into 67661 as well the last few days...

Re: FMR Fleet Movements

And here it is in bits πŸ˜ƒ
Engine is out and stripped. It's terminal for the block I'm afraid, as no1 con rod has snapped and smashed the bottom of the cylinder. We have a good spare block that I'm planning to swap everything over into.

Re: DD12 Revival

DD 12, the engine runs fine and I'm sure most of the smoke is due to it not having a proper good blowout for many years. A new exhaust system has been delivered and I'm sure this will make a difference as the old one is full of a tar like substance which is really flammable ( don't ask πŸ˜ƒ ) When I ge...

Re: 33402

The gearbox was ok but the engine was just plain worn out and had a bad oil leak from a loose camshaft core plug. I ended up fitting 6 pistons, 6 liners, new camshaft, new followers, all new bearings and a new gear pump for the fuel pump. Here she is waiting to go back in.
