19 Oct Working Party 19/10/2019
Team Leader: John Attridge
- Work was carried out on the coach outer body repair patches
- The final outer bearings were withdrawn. A very large castellated nut had to be removed first to enable the tender bearings to be removed off the axles. It was decided that it would require a large specialist spanner to do this as we felt it was not good engineering practice to undo the nut with a sledge hammer and chisel. After some discussion Dave had a eureka moment and produced the spanner shown in the attachments. The spanner made short work of the obstinate nuts.
Next working day: 2nd November, team leader Dave Oliver.
