Paul's ex London Fleetline MLK550L has decided to develop a leak on the power steering hydraulic ram. As most of you will know, the power steering on a Fleetline is an 'aftermarket fit' as the original design didn't have this feature. Certain operators specified it though and later some retro fitted it - sometimes using the pesky Autosteer system. On the DMS it was a large hydraulic ram that provides the oomph to turn the wheel. We've speculated here at SCOC HQ if this is the same system as the Merlins and Swifts in London would have had too...
Anyway, Paul has managed to remove it and will see if it can be rebuild rather than replaced.
Here you will find out the latest news about our buses and future events we hope to attend. In addition we will add any interesting bus and coach related news we come across.
