Leyland. . 600 engined vehicle

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what vehicle the British army had with a Leyland 600 engine. Apparently the inlet valves I needed identifying are for that engine. Thanks Graeme

Aren't the Leyland 600 inlet valves masked?

Unable to check the part number, but to answer your question on what vehicles the Army used with Leyland 600, I seem to recollect the Marshall Gainsborough loading shovel was powered by one.

Not sure. Just going with what I was told.

Thanks Richard. I'll update the records in my head.

Now I've done the sensible thing and looked at a data book, I can see that the vales are not masked. Trying to be more helpful, it seems the O600 was fitted to some Hippos (as well as lots of commercial vehicles).

Hi Phil,

I have a feeling the Leyland 19H trucks used by the RAF in the Fifties (refueller, radar, etc) had the O600 engine. Only saw one in army service and that was a tipper.

Also look at RM Routemaster buses, my bus RM1312 was original a Leyland engined bus. The Routemaster Association is a good place to look for spares info.
