• Daf Bus is offering new 11.6-litre DKDL 1160 engines for fitting in the 6,000 Mk I Leyland Nationals currently operating in the UK.
The engine produces 121kW at 2,000rpm, and 655Nm of torque 1,300rpm. Daf claims: "The turbocharged engine it replaces develops a similar output, but the torque curve of the Daf DIC.DL is flatter, giving 95% of maximum torque over an engine speed range of 75Orpm."
Daf says the engine, carrying a year's unlimiteddistance warranty, mates exactly with the original transmission of the Leyland National.
