  10. Rolling radius of tyres eg centre of hub to top of tyre = ? wheel base believe = 3940 mm ? centre front axle to front bumper overhang believe = 1314 mm ? centre front axle to rearmost of cab = ? centre rear axle to back of rear spring hanger = ? Chassis height from floor = ? say near middle of truck Chassis depth chassis width is chassis top flange straight back to front /parallel side to side from cab to rear one last ask when looking from side is top of rear wheel above/ below top of chassis rail Really would be a big help if anyone could advise on these thanks in advance Steve I am hoping to convert to a small/medium recovery /winching vehicle but with a bit of a difference to the run of the mill
  11. Hi can any body help me I am after dimensions for a Leyland/daf 244 have trawled the internet but apart from overall width length and height I have drawn a blank from all my usual sources. I will be purchasing one later on this year and hoping to get a head start on the piece of kit that I hope to fit

    DO 17 raising

    almost six years since this happened is everbody convinced this was a worthwhile project or an absolute waste of hard earned publicly donated cash
  13. to be honest I thought it was ideal at 2200 rpm but I only used mine for 18 months working on recovery
  14. Posted Saturday at 06:14 PM Thanks for your reply’s. yes the vehicle is up and running and no noise when you depress the brake pedal Every body seems to be overlooking the fact there is no noise when pressing pedal so I would suggest no air getting to it
