A question for all those knowledgeable about Leylands!

Does anyone know the history or have pictures of JRE114 a '38/'39 Leyland?

Answers do not have to be on a postcard...

Barry(JRE 114),I can't tell you much about the appliance history,but the one you mentioned is a 1939 Leyland Cub FK8 and was issued to Tamworth Joint Fire Brigade in September of 1939.

Hi does anyone know what engine was fitted to these and does anyone know where i could source some engine parts as i am involved in the restoration of one. Many thanks

Reverend K S Oliver,before any answers can be added to your request,we need to know what year and what actual model the appliance is.The first of the FKT and F5/F7 Series of Leyland Cub's first came around 1937,but several engines were used in the different models being introduced.
A very good sourse of information can actually be obtained from purchasing the book'Leyland Fire Engines'1930-1942.Its a Leyland Fleet Series book published by The Leyland Society.The cost of the book first published in 2003(still available)is just £8.95 and is available from any good bookshop.Ask for title-then ISBN 0-9545216-1-7.
I hope this info is of some help to you in the preservation of your Leyland Cub????.
