The new years jobs started with trying to get tkg 518j our leopard tow bus started. We found that the fuel system was badly contaminated a legacy of not being run for about 5 years, We removed fuel pump and injectors for overhaul. These have now been put back on bus but we still could not get enough fuel pressure up so the lift pump was over hauled as well. The fuel tank has been bypassed so we were feeding clean fuel in via a temporary tank. We now have a problem with the starter motor as it will not turn engine over fast enough to get fuel pressure into fuel pump so that needs to be checked next.
We have now fitted the new bushes into the rear suspension torsion bar and replaced back on Pax 466f.
