  • Untitled Document
    leaky vehicles becoming almost tropical The Tiger did leak a bit but the new temporary fabric roof was quite good considering it was made of the cheapest leathercloth material I could find and had billowed and stretched alarmingly in the slip stream of the lorry on the way down The leaks did not seem to stop a succession of people finding their way inside to try out the seats I wish I had a pound for every time I heard Coo look at this leather Those that know Amberley will know that the site is quite large and includes a replica Southdown garage where ancient solid tyred Tilling Stevens petrol electrics live and come out to play without concern for the MOT or other such modern requirements So I determined that at the end of the day on my way back to the low loader I would detour up to the garage around the loop road at the end of the quarry and see how the Tiger would run With the engine running and Glynis Steve and my brother Robin on board it became a little difficult to disguise that something interesting was about to happen Suddenly from nowhere some friends appeared with hopeful looks and in they came A moment later two huge smiles heralded the arrival of John Richard Gent friends from C P T M S who also settled down inside As we set off there was a rush from some stragglers and I was obliged to stop at the Tramocar bus stop to let them on When we set off we were about three quarters full which in my book constitutes a proper load of passengers and indeed probably the first since 1950 when the Tiger was last used on the road Now the thing is I had only been as high as second gear before this time the confines at Canvey precluding bursts of speed Now I was going to do my experiments with a load of spectators Supposing it pegs out half way round Will I crash the gears Into third What an obliging gearbox I m enjoying this immensely and greatly stressed all at the same time Hello I m foot to the floor here and we re not exactly racing away Then I have to stop again Someone has parked Dave Hurley s Cavalier outside the Southdown Garage and blocked the road The coach is empty except for a sole passenger standing in the door way I climb from the cab the Tiger patiently ticks over and the passengers patiently wait If it stalls I think I m done for because it s a beggar to start on the handle when it s hot Is Dave about I ask He wasn t driving comes the reply Can you move it out of the way then I ask I can t drive is the unhelpful reply Good Grief Does he not know how petrol Tigers drink fuel My tiny substitute for a fuel

  • Harrington KD 5296 Leyland Tiger TS2 Conservation
    several times during the day causing a mass of people to assemble in awe each time Attention to a broken spring in the Autovac meant that she could now suck fuel from a can Inspection of KD 5296 s coachwork has revealed that the war years took their toll There is extremely heavy wear to the lino and foot rests Presumably shortly after the war she was repainted It was not a very good job and was perhaps only intended just to smarten her up The paint is spread over the window rubbers and some of the chrome fittings However the sign writing is extensive and professionally done The paint was thickly applied in some areas In the battery locker a silver 3d dated 1896 was discovered firmly stuck in the paint The folding canvas roof has completely rotted away but the interior decorative rexine lining to this survives intact enough to provide a pattern for replacement Some of the interior plain rexine has been painted over presumably at the same time the outside was done The leather in the seats was very dry and a whole day was spent just cleaning the leather and dressing them with hide food So far the only work done has been to stop further deterioration and make the vehicle more easily mobile During April 1997 she was put on the pit for attention with a grease gun The brakes which were adjusted right off by Frank Elliot to prevent them sticking have now been re adjusted correctly the rusted silencer has been replaced and the fuel tank removed with a view to making a new one It is hoped that full restoration will eventually take place This poses a dilema in many respects because although exceedingly scruffy much of the interior is remarkably
