Kingscale Britannia - cab removal for glass change?
« on: September 25, 2018, 10:34:20 am »
Does anyone know how to remove the Cab from the Kingscale Britannia (maybe other models too) as I need to replace the gauge glass and it seems to need the Cab removed for access. The Cab is secured by 4 small bolts, but it seems it needs the reverser to be dismantled as well. I'm new to engine DIY but thought I'd better start somewhere  :-\

Thanks Ashley. I do have some photos now from Jon Spalding on cab removal. One needs to uncouple the reverser linkage at the universal joint, and remove the reverser assembly out of the cab, then cab comes off complete with reverser housing. I'll share photos with anyone else who may need them.

Brian kindly sent me the photos, together with some helpful comments - which I've now made available on the G3 Society website as a PDF download for anyone who would like to have it.
