Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• One of the exhibits on the Daimler stand at Earls Court will be a Daimler Fleetline fitted with the Leyland 680 engine. The Leyland engine option on the Fleetline was first recorded in CM November 21 1969 when an order for 26 Leyland-engined Daimler Fleetlines for Southend corporation Transport was announced. Subsequent Leyland-engined Fleetline orders have been reported.

The 680 engine in vertical form is an 11.1-litre unit with a maximum power output of 200 bhp at 2200 rpm. In the Fleetline the engine will be offered with two power settings-153 bhp at 1750 rpm and 165 bhp at 1900 rpm. The higher rating is intended largely for use in the lOrn doubledeck version with its high power /weight req uirement.

Another feature of Leyland-engined Fleetlines is the use of a two-speed hydraulic governor, operative at idling and at maximum speed. The device assists smooth gear-changing. particularly when fully automatic transmission is specified.
