GUY VICTORY: HOW IT WAS DONE.
The Guy Victory has a complicated history. It started off with South Africa's dislike of rear engined double deckers and their mechanical frailty in the South African climate. A lot of Guy Victory front engined single deckers were being operated successfully at that time, so their engineers set out to build a double deck version. I think the straight chassis frame of the single decker was retained, but by mounting the springs differently it was possible to bring the chassis height down to an acceptable level. They then requested Leyland to build them further chassis to their altered design, but Leyland refused. So they had to accept the single deck chassis, alter them in South Africa before being bodying them as double deckers. In Hong Kong, they were also disatisfied with Leyland's rear engined offerings , so borrowed one of the South african buses for trials. The trials were broadly successful, but once again Leyland would not budge. So the two major bus operators, China Motorbus and Kowloon Motorbus approached Dennis Hestair at Guildford. They agreed to build them what they wanted and the result was the Dennis Jubilant. This featured a front mounted Gardner 6LXB engine and Voith automatic gearbox, the front axle being set back to allow driver only operation. Finally fearing the loss of an important and lucarative customer to Dennis, Leyland capitulated and built the Guy Victory for Hong Kong. Like the Jubilant it featured a front mounted Gardner 6LXB and Voith automatic gearbox, and to bring the chassis height down, a Leyland Worldmaster chassis was used. Although designed and built by Guy at Wolverhampton, they were badged as Leylands. Both the Dennis Jubilants and Guy Victory's both had full service lives (unlike the Wukfrunian) in the difficult operating conditions of Hong Kong. I wourld hazard a guess that front brake and tyre wear must have been heavier than usual. This is the Victory preserved at Lathalmond in Scotland and at the time was acting as transport between Dunfermline and Lathalmond at one of their open days. The first part of the clip shows how the engine was accomodated. It must be admitted there is not much room between the nearside of the engine and the nearside front wheel arch, making a centre exit pretty well essential. One of the Scottish west coast co-operatives, AA aproached Dennis with a view to purchasing a Dennis Jubilant for use in Scotland, but Dennis would not. They cited problems with the tilt test. This is odd as the British and Hong Kong tilt test is identical. AA ended up with a Dominator instead, presumably they were happy with their purchase.
34/365 Not Zapatas or King's Park
Tuesday 17 February 2009 Time: 9.33pm Location: Gull Service Station on Guildford Rd, Mt Lawley, WA, Australia Photo by: Stranger Went out for half price nachos after work at Zapatas in Fremantle with friends, and was planning the photo there, so I could tell you all about Zapatas and their great deal on Mondays and Tuesdays. But completely forgot. On my way home I came very close to driving up to King's Park to pretend to be a tourist and get my photo taken up their, but I desperately needed sleep. And I needed petrol and to check my tyres anyway, so went to the petrol station. It was very busy so didn't get the guy behind the counter to take it, but a guy who was pumping up bike tyres outside and trying to find leaks. While I was filling my tyres someone else came up and asked him about how long it took to bike from the city to there. It was a strange conversation and the guy just stood there for a bit too. I joined in the conversation too. After he left I joked to the guy he was getting all sorts of weirdos talking to him, first me then the other guy. He laughed and I said something about loving it (the weirdness).
