If the problem is solely related to the air compressor (as per your other thread) any half decent heavy vehicle mechanic should be able to sort it for you.

Thanks Boronia.
I think its more than the compressor I need someone with at least some sort of an idea about buses/Leylands...Need it fixed urgent bus is waiting to head to WA as we speak. Not going anywhere at moment. urgent urgent. Diamond T sounds like the man I may need from past threads I have read over the years. its whether or not its in the budget.

Thanks guys may have sorted it but not put back together as yet.
We think it was a sticking valve and some rusty old air lines.
Have parts to do compressor and replaced Governor valve and cleaned another valve which appeared to be stuck.
Replaced some air lines etc
Will get on to it again after New Year.
Cant seem to find a number Guy Arab? Did you send?
