Re: FMR Fleet Movements

And most of us are not looking forward to their return ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - is that because you expect to have to do a lot of work on them, to bring them up-to-scratch ?? Well the first one has arrived ( 42893) and after an inspection it's now awaiting a load of repairs. I fitted an almost new engine to this bus be...

Re: Darts 41502 and 42893

Yep 45102 has come over to us for another engine. Unfortunately it also needs engine mounts, a new turbo and nobody at Stoke noticed that the gearbox was only hanging in by 2 bolts instead of the usual 12. This has resulted in the gearbox case becoming detached from its bell housing and the box is r...

Re: Visiting Buses at Worcester

Some smaller DAF and Dennis trucks use the Cummins euro 3 isb engine which is also fitted to the E300. Lovely simple and reliable engines which I really enjoy rebuilding. Almost all major truck manufacturers build their own engines nowadays , DAF, Volvo, Scania, Mercedes etc. Renault and Volvo share...

Re: Visiting Buses at Worcester

Engine is out of 67602. Unfortunately I've been told that they don't want the engine rebuilt, although we have all the parts in stock to do this. I'm to find and fit a second hand engine probably from a Daf truck.

Re: Volvo 32067

32067 was towed in for a blown gearbox cooler hose that unfortunately we do not keep a stock of. The good news is that I found one in my "saved" items collection from the donor bus that I pulled the engine from at Xmas time. After changing the hose and starting the bus I noticed that the alternator ...

Re: 44511

Adam, 44514 is now as smooth as 44511. I changed all the engine mounts on it last night. Only 2 of the 3 were broken ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.
44515 is sat with no gearbox in at the moment, that too has a set of shot engine mounts that we are hoping to do before the box goes back in.

Re: Withdrawn Coach 20201

Apparently there are 2 donor vehicles in Barnsley and we might be making a trip up there to cut some bits off one of them. The cost of the new parts have come in at over ยฃ5500....

Re: StreetDeck breakdowns

We have very little trouble with any of our Streetdecks at Worcester. They are very reliable compared to the Streetmax. The low coolant warning on one of them has suffered in the past with a very intermittent fault but as far as I'm aware this has not been an issue recently. There is a coolant level...

I have been asked though to provide a list of parts required to put her back together, not going to be cheap
