This was back in the 1970's, when I was a fitter at a bus company. It was our breakdown vehicle, didn't get a lot of use, but seemed to use a lot of petrol!Bedford RL,bloody hell that takes me back a bit Alan,
those old Bedford (300 ?) petrol engines could be a sod to get the heads off sometimes
due to the studs rusting solid in the heads
I remember one day going to Battersea coach park in London with the workshop foreman to fetch a coach with a knackered engine back to Chepstow, what a journey that was (no engine running in the coach, so no heater all the way back). Why did these things only seem to happen in winter?
