406DCD - November 2012

We have recently completely rebuilt several Leyland gearboxes for use in our fleet of vintage buses. Here, the old Leyland type GB112 gearbox fitted to bus number 406 is seen inside the vehicle from above. It has been disconnected and is about to be lowered into the pit below.

The gearbox referred to in the caption above is seen after lowering at the back of the pit, with the new reconditioned unit to the fore ready for lifting.

 A closer view of the reconditioned type 112 gearbox.

And finally, the new unit in position fitted to the bus ready for testing.
