Look at that oily stain dribbling down the radiator grille from the radiator cap, a common phenomenon with later BMMO 8 litre underfloor engines - head gasket failure and 'water in the cylinder bores'. I am told that such buses often responded with a 'clonk' when attempting to start first thing in the morning and needed a mechanics attention to remove an injector temporarily then turn the engine over to pump out the water - golden days!
