14.02.2016 servicing continues.

Work continues on mark 1 TSO 5060

The toilet end buck eye was found to have excessive play in the mounting pin so it was removed for attention.  Shown below is the drawbar with its new bush inserted.  The new pin is also in the picture.

The buck eye coupling with the lower bush having been pressed into place.  The top bush is in place ready to be pressed in.

The door that had the broken drop light caused a lot of problems, first the window channels didn't have any felt left in them.  This was solved by sourcing a window channel meant for classic cars, however it works well.  The other problem was the panelling was worn out, show below is the finisbed door with new panelling to the lower half.

Outside the door the corner panel that has recieved a tidy up.

Inside the heater covings have been removed for repair, a large number with broken hinges or fixings.

The seats were also suffering  which Jack is dealing with.

Seat frames have also needed some repairs.

New sections of seat framing.

At the toilet vestibule end an aluminium panel replaces some damaged lino floor covering.

The outside is also having a clean up with T-cut and wax polish.

The next vehicle in for attention is mark 2 TSO 5149.  So far it has had the wheel bearing re-grease and new cork gasket replacement job carried out.
