From memory the Leyland engine was up to Mk 19 before the Chieftain was repaired. Additionally the 120 mm rifled barrel had to be replaced after 125 (?) rds, with the advent of the LRP which counted for 8 rds the barrel had to be changed out rather often. You had to take the turret off and pull the barrel out backwards !
