Clutch replacement on our Bristol LH MUO 328F - Round 2

 

Round 2...... 

After discovering a minor whoopsie on the original replacement with the release bearing being the wrong way round, we had to take the gearbox back out, put this right and then try again. Everything was going well, but unfortunately (as most bus preservationists will know) this was not to be case. We now have a problem with the slave pack which has given us a rock hard pedal. Oh joys..... yet another job to do! Anyone would think this bus doesn't want to come back on the road! Read more

Work continued yesterday with Paul and I attempted to tackle a water pump change which was successful until the point we found the replacement was leaking water! With the old one re-fitted, back to the shed was the next plan until the clutch decided to give up en-route which left 716 needing to be towed back until that can be replaced. Read more
