  1. Ditto, maybe just didn't have a cab or axles that I was enquiring about - I'll send another email to check if they have any Sumbs left
  2. Nelson Hydraulics can supply the wheel cylinder seals, but I haven't tried to source any air pak seals
  3. I recently emailed Kerry at RR Services to enquire about spares for the Sumb, but got a brief reply saying that they were unable to help at present. Does anyone know if they still have trucks/spares?
  4. This is the link to the French manuals (thanks to Pitmole) I am steadily working through them so may be able to help with certain sections
  5. Hello MV experts, Does anyone know the maximum width of tire that can be fitted to Simca UNIC Sumb rims, instead of the original 10.5 R20? I am looking at (Unimog) 335/80 R20 or 12.5 R20, but the sellers are not sure if they will work? I'm aware there will be an increase in tire OD and need to check rubbing clearance. Thanks, Adam

  7. Thanks Ian for this advice - apologies that I didn't reply sooner
  8. Following this thread with interest, thank you all for the useful information above. Adam
  9. I've just bought a Sumb which needs a fair amount of work, and some parts to get running (mainly the air pak needs a complete overhaul or potentially replacement - might have to find an equivalent from a different truck?). Can anyone recommend a good general source of spares - are RR still the best bet in the UK? Any good sources in France or mainland Europe? And do spares ever turn up at the UK military vehicle shows? Thanks in advance, Adam
  10. I'm also interested as my air pac is in a poor state and requires a complete overhaul (or replacement with an equivalent) Thanks, Adam
