Sometimes owning and restoring old buses can be great fun and very rewarding but other times it can be a real pain in the ####! This week I checked the fleet at the yard only to find that 'NUW' has two sticky leveling valves making her lean to the right and 7681 has a flat tyre making her lean to the left. I'm hoping the tyre is something simple like a leaking valve rather than a puncture as it has a good tread on that particular one. Changing bus wheels is never easy - because of the size and weight of the things for a start - and when I get round to doing it I will include a photographic report on it to give you and idea of what's involved.
