What do you want / Need
recent committee meeting it was decided to create
reproduction copies of sections of Leyland manuals
but because of the huge range it is difficult to
determine in what priority these should be made and
so we thought it would be a good idea to ask the
owners what they wanted.
This is your
opportunity to influence which workshop documents we
digitise and in what priority - subject of course to
our having access to a good quality original in the
first place. The duplicates could be made available
on CDr/w or for an additional fee a memory clip /
dongle depending on size of file.
Please send your
requirements by email to

Rubber Mounting Bushes –
Leyland 600 Engine for PD2s, PS2s (and maybe PD3s)
An initiative we
(Sydney Bus Museum) are urgently pursuing is the
production of rubber mounting bushes for the Leyland
600 engine in PD2s, PS2s and maybe PD3s, I’m not
We have 6
such buses, one being re-engined right now and it
needs 16 such bushes per bus (4 mounting struts, two
ends each, two bushes per end). Each end takes 2
dissimilar size bushes.
We’ve had a quote of about $1600 for the mould
tooling and a price of about $10 each for the rubber
The number we order is dependent on what interest
there is from elsewhere in the world in taking some
bushes for future use. We would only do one
production run, as the price drops greatly for large
I wonder could you try to establish what demand
there might be from your owners?
We suggest a putative price of about $16 per bush
plus 10% GST and shipping.
found a decent price for shipping from UPS who will
take 20 kg from Aust to UK, door to door for $176.
unit cost could drop if we were to order a few
hundred bushes. Our buses alone will eventually need
total 128 pieces, as the rubbers now are nearing 30
or 40 years of age, and are collapsing.

I am pleased to say that the
first samples of the motor mount bushes have been
Personally I’m pleased with the
quality. Perfect dimensions, thanks to the
toolmaker’s allowance for shrinkage in the mould,
nice clean finish and a very good firm feel. Shore
of 70A has been held.
Very professional job all told.
I’ll keep you posted on price.
The photos show them straight
from the mould without any trimming of flash.
Price negotiations are going on
with the moulder and will depend on order size, and
of course we will press the impoverished charity
I’ll keep you posted.
Please advise how many sets you
might take, given an acceptable price.
Armed with expressions of
interest we can decide on as large an order as
possible to keep price down.
