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 certain.

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 itself.

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 quantities. 

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. 

I have found a decent price for shipping from UPS who will take 20 kg from Aust to UK, door to door for $176.

The per 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 produced.

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 Hardness 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 line.

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.

Victoria Coach Station 85th Anniversary Coach Festival

10-12 March 2017

In March 2017, Victoria Coach Station will be celebrating its 85th birthday with a three-day Coach Festival from 10th to 12th March. Featuring vehicles from every decade since the grand opening on 10th March 1932, the Festival will showcase coaches, artefacts and presentations on the history of coach travel in Britain. There will be stalls from current operators, as well as a number of competitions raising money for Transport for London’s chosen charity: The Transport Benevolent Fund. The most modern coaches will also be on display and available for inspection and boarding, alongside preserved vehicles dating from the late 1920s to the 1990s.

The coach station, originally conceived, constructed and operated by a consortium of coach operators coming together under the banner of London Coastal Coaches Ltd, is now owned and operated by Transport for London. TfL are keen to celebrate the history of the coach station and also to demonstrate the continuing development of the facilities within the coach station to meet the needs of the much larger and complex vehicles now using VCS and the people who travel within them.  The imposing 1930s’ Art Deco building on the corner of Buckingham Palace Road and Elizabeth Street is still at the heart of the operation providing the main passenger entrance with areas containing public facilities for enquiries and booking, seated waiting areas and a range of cafes, shops and snack bars. This building and the canopy behind covering a significant part of the coach departure area are Grade 2 listed by Historic England.

TV&GWOT are assisting TfL in organising the event by encouraging the owners of preserved coaches to bring their vehicles to this iconic and nostalgic setting to celebrate its 85th Anniversary. Whether your coach was originally operated by one of the principal express coach companies or possibly ‘on-hire’ to one of these companies at peak holiday weekends,  please download and complete an entry form available from www.tvagwot.org.uk . Forms may be submitted to TV&GWOT by post or email to the addresses given on the form.

Vehicles on display will be parked in Lanes 1-4 which are at the eastern end of the coach departure area and nearest to the main passenger entrance and facilities. The display area will be cordoned off from the operational area to allow free circulation of the public around the preserved coaches.
