Re: R 913 Who is she?

Thanks very much for that tip. We will contact them on monday.

This perhaps an unusual request but there are people with vast experience who read this board ands someone out there just might have the vital information we need to order the parts.

R 913 is a Leyland PD3/1A decker ex CIE built on old P (PS2) mechanicals with a new Park Royal Body.

The engine has dropped two valves and we cannot find a serial on it.

I think the engine is a Leyland 500 and Stephen thinks it is a 600.

Is there anyone out there with Leyland knowledge who could (a) tell us how we can tell whether it is a 500 or 600 or (b) who simply knows what engines were stuck into R 901-R 923.

The problem is even more complicated because I think they were built with 400 and it was changed after about six months as they were short of engines when they built them.

The third question is whether 400, 500 and 600 engines are interchangeable.

Thanks for any help.
