N143 PTG (Optare Metrorider). When we replaced the throttle pedal unit we found that the brake foot valve was badly corroded. As part of our preventative maintenance we decided to order a new valve and this has been fitted this weekend. 143 is now a fully operational vehicle now.
UTG 313G (Ex P.U.D.C and Taff-Ely AEC Regent V) has had a new exhaust flex and clamps fitted. The fuel lift pump filter was cleaned out and system bleed. We then checked the vehicle over for mot and a few minor jobs were attended to.
Also our resident painter applying a coat of gloss to Beany (K91 BNY – our ex Rhondda Dennis Dart).
We recently bought the Metrorider up from the docks storage for a pre MOT check and to sort out a throttle related issue. We renewed the throttle pedal assembly and replaced the throttle and cable. The fuel pump leaver was found to be fitted incorrectly this has now been re positioned and the kick down was now found to be operating correctly. The vehicle has had a check over and service and has successfully passed it’s MOT (June 2017).
