JKG 497 F
Whilst attempting to move the bus it stalled and was reluctant to restart. We checked out the fuel system and found that the fuel pump rack had stuck. On closer inspection the rear portion was found to be seized so it was stripped down including the dismantling of the governor box. It was overhauled by fuel injection services and refitted, system bleed and tested OK.
360 (WTG 360 T)
It was reported that the front brakes were pulling to one side, so both wheels and brake drums removed and the brakes checked and adjusted, something that we did frequently at Cardiff bus as it was a common problem. The bus was road tested OK.
