I am asking £2000 for my
rare 87 Roadrunner which I sadly have no more use
for. I have owned it since 2011/12. It has a later
(circa 1992 ish) Cummins Recon BT5.9 low emission
engine fitted. At 130HP it pulls well and does up to
30mpg on my many trips to sw France where I am now
relocating to. I have done about 15 trips with no
breakdown cover and no fear that it would let me
down. It was once a Porsche Race Team transporter
and workshop, so has a workbench, 2 ramps that hook
onto the 1000Kg Taillift, made in Scotland.It has
400k KM on the clock and is mot’d until the end of
Since I have owned it I
have improved it greatly but it needs a bit more tic
to improve its looks. Mechanically I have in the
past year fitted new rear wheel cylinders and brake
shoes and a new Numax 120Ahr battery. Previously it
has had 2 new front tyres, shock absorber bushes,
track rod dust boots, water pump, fuel shutoff
Solenoid, new filters etc. When I purchased it it
had no air filter element fitted so I decided to
remove the cylinder head, grind in all valves and
fit new valve stem oil seals with new head gasket,
injector copper washers etc. This improved the power
and minimised oil consumption, which is very low.
The pictures show a tool
cabinet and 3.5 ton winch assisted by a 200Ahr
auxiliary battery which I intend to remove prior to
selling. should a buyer need these for motor
transport use they can be refitted for a negotiated
sum. These 3 items cost around £1000 alone so are
only possibly available at extra cost.
It is located in the
Guildford Surrey area for viewing, but will be
making another return trip to france from 23rd July.
It may not return until around 10th september when
it will remain in a secure yard until sold.
I will not have email
after 21st July so anyone interested should contact
me by texting my mobile so I can return the call.
Calls cost the same as uk even in France. mobiles

Leyland Olympian bus.
Registration F802 NGU
It’s recently picked up a couple of problems so we
are going to either scrap it or find out if someone
would like to preserve it.
The two faults are there is a bolt snapped at one
end of the prop shaft.
Secondly there is some water mixing with the oil
possibly through one of the cylinder heads.
If you or anyone you know may be interested in
taking this on then I would be happy to sell it for

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.
