leyland 600/680 conversion

Postby mr.hall » Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:28 pm

Hi. I have a leyland opd2 double decker with a 600 engine and was wondering if it was possible to put 680 piston and liners in to make it a 680 or maybe its not as simple as that???? I also have a worldmaster with a horizontal 680 which pulls well. I was considering converting it to vertical and making one engine out of the two. any info or suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

thanks for that I'm still weighing everything up. thought about doing an upgrade with a more modern truck engine and running gear but I would like to keep it as original as possible. theres a fine line between orininality and reliability.
