What do you want / Need

Following a 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 theleylandsocietyltd@gmail.com

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.
