  3. 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
  4. 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

Needless to say dad gave me a ten bob note and told me to go buy 2 pair like johns this was about 1970
