    DAF T244

    Thank you - that is very helpful. What about the top canvas? Can anyone recommend a source for a replacement? eBay isn't returning much...

    DAF T244

    Hi all Can anyone help with a replacement top canvas sheet for my DAF T244? I cannot find one online anywhere... Can anyone also help with naming the paint colour or the closest match to some readily available online sources? Matthew

    DAF T244 Alternator

    Thanks both - that is helpful. A rebuild was my preferred option but the DAF gets a lot of use this one of year so I am happy to spend a bit more for a quicker turn around. I will report back to help others if I find one that fits.

    DAF T244 Alternator

    Can anyone help with the correct alternator required for my T244? I cannot find a part number on the alternator or in the documentation online. I am currently going with: https://www.dfjauto.com/DFJ010155

    WANTED: DAFF T244 Parts

    One air tank drain valve was leaking badly but it has been “fixed” with a fitting and a welded cap for the time being! The alternator is just about sorted now and I will take a look online for the original jack. For the time being I am using a metal bar that fits the pump. I plan to add the standard air line quick release valve to the air tap on the right chassis rail but just need to find the correct fittings.

    DAF T244 Centre Diff Lock

    The unwind was intentional - something I had read else where that was needed to release the diff lock. It seemed to work and was done carefully!

    DAF T244 Centre Diff Lock

    I jacked up the rear near side wheel, let the hand brake off and released the wind up. I could then move the diff lock lever manually 👍 It thanked me for it and then the alternator failed. Never mind - I needed something else to do! Thank you all for your help.

    DAF T244 Centre Diff Lock

    Thanks both - I will do what @john1950 suggested first to save @Wendelspanswick climbing underneath and then report the results. I will also get that buzzer sorted too.

    DAF T244 Centre Diff Lock

    Thank you for the help. I have never heard the warning buzzer despite needing to wait for the air pressure to build up so that must be faulty too! Is it on the dash console somewhere? The truck was driven on a loose surface all day on Saturday and the warning light never came off. The diff lock actuator still fails to move the lever on the diff downwards to the locked position so perhaps it is wound too tight? I currently think the diff is unlocked but the warning light is on when it shouldn't be (sensor fault?) and the diff is wound tight so it won't engage the front/rear lock. Could that be right? I have come across that document before - it is very helpful indeed and has taught me a lot!.

    DAF T244 Centre Diff Lock

    I haven’t heard a warning buzzer but then I have never heard the warning buzzer! Should it sound when you test the dash warning lights? It is driven on loose ground most of the time - only driven on a hard surface when parked up. I am not certain that it’s engaged as I’ve never driven it when it was purposely engaged. I think I am noticing odd behaviour because I am looking for it! What do you mean by wound tight?
  12. Hi All First post so please be kind... I have a DAF T244 canvas back troop carrier with a centre diff lock issue and am hoping for some help. The warning light is on the dash showing the centre diff is locked (I have learnt it is permanent four wheel drive from another post on this site here much like a Land Rover) and the air actuator did not seem to do anything. I remove the actuator from the arm on the diff and tested it while it was connected to the air supply - it moves as it should. The arm on the diff that engages the lock is solid and I believe it is in the unlocked position as I have checked another vehicle but when turning the vehicle on concrete I feel the tyres scrubbing. See the attached image with one end of the actuator removed (apologies for the poor quality). Does anyone know if this is engaged or not? Should this arm move freely and what can I do to unjam it? Any advice would be appreciated! Matthew
