  • Description Standard B model cab with separate sleeper box on behind. Wriggle through the rear (enlarged) window apperture. Bostrom air suspended seat.<br />END 673T with Jake brakes, 5 x 4 box, camelback rear end. Not sure of the ratio but it does 63mph at 2100rpm according to my satellite navigator. It's in so many pieces I'm ashamed to photograph them all. Engine is rebuilt as are the main and joey boxes. Diff magnets were clean and they are both silent so I'm leaving the centres alone for the present. Am lengthening the frame to take a Palfinger hyd crane 1.5t and a 22ft tray behind it. Be able to use it for taking my hobby stuff around then. I run miniature steam locos. About 400 to 1000 pounds each; so that is why the Palfinger.

  • Other Comments I did my apprenticeship on mainly B models, and this is bringing back all those memories. Like the bolts that hold the flywheel housing to the back of the block that stretched. After the times I did a clutch replacement on the side of the road, I waited until the complete cab and fenders were off before pulling the motor and transmission out. No rust anywhere in the cab. Little bit in the frame but not enough to frighten the roadworthiness inspector when he came to inspect it all.
