Hi all, I'm new here and I'm hoping to get some recommendations and some advice/information. I have just bought a 1979 Leyland Terrier Diesel bus that I have taken over converting it into a motorhome. I have basic information on the running gear of this bus. I have been told it has an Isuzu engine and it's a semi automatic but I am hoping to get more info about this make and model of Bus. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated as Google is only offering so much
Gothmumma, welcome, you got the first post right with a photo so we non bussies know what you are talking about. There are all sorts of experts on here and someone will be able to give you information or where else to look. And while you are scraping muck and grease off various parts, like engine model, and as John asks, diff brand etc.... keep feeding the information back here so we can all keep up.
How does it drive? What sort of comfortable cruising speed does it have/do you want?
The only Terrier axle any good was the one fitted to the V8 petrol model.....it was the old Austin 5 ton diff..........I hope you have this model,not the ones with the Perkins /mazda engine......nothing wrong with the engine,just the diff......whole axle actually,I sleeved a lot of hubs when the bearing seats flogged oversize...studs used to come loose too ,in the poor quality cast iron.......They were a nice little truck to drive,the 6/247 had plenty of power ,just some parts didnt last.
