- Case Studies
Earlier this year, Dobson Gaskets were contacted by Chris Packer from The Transport Museum in Wythall, Worcestershire, about manufacturing two head gaskets for a 1951 Birmingham City Transport Daimler CVD6 bus. This was an interesting project for the team at Dobson's to work on and demonstrates the processes required to precision manufacture a new component from the original.
The number 2707 Daimler CVD6 bus operated in the Midlands from 1951 to 1969, spending most of its working life running from Liverpool Street garage in Birmingham. It was one of 438 Daimler buses operated by Birmingham City Transport during that period and was renowned for being smooth to drive but thirsty for fuel and water.
