Re: Denning Landseer which one to buy

It's not a Landseer. I believe it is ex-Rod North & Sons, ex-Cross Country Tours. It is an NCBC body, with supposedly an MCA chassis, however there were quite a few of these running around badged as Cummins which were actually Csepels, a Hungarian chassis so I'm no entirely sure. You'll know by the ...

Re: Volvo B10M in NSW

The Harris Park B10Ms were around 1997 so wouldn't be the last.

Port Stephens had a CB50 bodied Mk4 of around 2001 vintage.

The B10M SE had the motor further back allowing room for a front luggage bin in addition to a rear boot.

Re: **WANTED COACH SEATS SEAT BELTED**

Hi funbus, You are completely right about blowing out in costs. The Transit Rallye's only just came out of a bus used on a school run so I'd say it is only just passable. No rips but definitely thread bare, dirty and with a bit of vandalism. The Transit Genesis came out of a mine bus where literally...

Re: ZF GEAR BOX IN B10

Check your oil level to see if it is burnt or black. Pull out the main filter. When they fail for good they block the filter up with junk which stops the hydraulics and no go all of a sudden. You can run it with no filter to be able to limp the vehicle for a short distance. If this is the scenario t...

Re: bus motorhome conversion

So you're looking between 3x buses worth less than $4000 and one worth $200,000. If you've got that sort of money you can buy anything. Choose any chassis, except a Csepel, in the best condition possible with the most suitable body. Or just buy one new.

Nope, the position is still vacant.

By the way, I've deleted your number as I figured you'd changed it as I never heard back from any messages or emails? Give me a call as I haven't seen you round in ages.
