Just a reminder that the peak bus rally will be held next sunday 17th June at Rowsley - easy access if you are using public transport - remember the vintage bus service runs from both bakewell and matlock from around noon to the site . There are normal services before this time
dwarfer1979 as it more of less spot on high reving engines especally turbocharged ones are more prone especialy if you have reduced the number of times you flush the system out this can get clogged . especcially if the bus is working on areas where there is a large amount of mud on road ie farming areas or where there is lots of construction sites.
I know that times are tight but one thing that was usefull and could do with comming back is the great british bus timetable which covered ALL inter urban services in the UK that was very good. It was easy to use a lot of the electronic services are not and are very difficult. When I did the research for the OAP by bus from sheffield to London it took me overall about 16 hours - longer than the journey - using electronic means if the GBBTT was around it would have taken me less than 3 - simply a case of looking on map then looking up the tt. Using the electronic system is difficult and some of it is WRONG full stop.
I may be wrong but if there was a fire, I would expect below the engine cover to be intact if not the engine cover would have melted. Does anyone agree?
Looking through my pics of buses which have been on fire ,gereraly speaking if its a engine compartment fire then the engine cover is involved , however sometimes the bit below the compartment can get involved , preseumably due to dripping liquids that then catch fire
