Axle casing cracks

Seeking a spare axle for an RML that’s suffering from a cracked axle casing. Does anyone have one tucked away somewhere, on top of the wardrobe, down the back of the sofa, that sort of thing?

Re: Axle casing cracks

Any left at PVS ?

My bus number (if any): RML2747

Re: Axle casing cracks

Try Imperial Engineering at Cheshunt, their capability some years ago could repair such a fault.

My bus number (if any): Ex LT Bus Engineering
