  1. What a great thread, with fantastic photos and information. Keep up the good work.
  2. Use a mineral gear oil in the transmission, axles, Tracta housings, steering box, I have found 140 grade works fine, 90 grade can be a little thin and leaks out . Use this oil in the upper and lower suspension components too, Not grease. (Need a good grease /oil gun). A good petrol engine oil, mineral based for the engine. General purpose grease in the wheel bearings with couple of squirts of oil to keep soft. Have fun, its a days job going round it all and slow with the tracta joints too.
  3. I have removed my tap and replaced with a tee piece 3/8 BSP and two connections to the original steel pipework, blank fitted to the third outlet. (Found its the same length as the tap). I am running on the drivers tank as don't need 2 tanks. (was finding 3 gallons of stale petrol in left tank and having to drain off). Cleaned fuel filter as it get blocked up with being stood too. Yours does sound well. Have done a good job.
  4. Hi, mine was a 4236 Perkins diesel, auto box, vehicle had 33000 miles on the clock and in great condition. They are a rare truck but if yours is wanting lots of work, eg brakes, rusty cab, with welding etc, servicing, tyres. Its an expensive buy. I would think you will have a long wait at £10 thou. It also depends how quick you want the sale. I would try £6000 as a realistic figure. All the best with the RB44, Nigel. Put more photos on stating good points and bad may help too and list what equipment it has starting with the engine, gearbox, dynamic brake on prop etc.
  5. All the best with the sale, mine sold in full working order 6 years ago for £2500. You just need a buyer that wants to use it as a fire engine, rally recovery vehicle or support vehicle as not the fastest truck. But does have a presence and a good tow vehicle. All the best, Nigel.
  6. Yes looks to be complete.
  7. They are a bigger truck than they look, some had fibreglass front wings.
  8. Take to a radio repair shop that do soldering, they will have new wires on in 5 minutes. As soldering the centre pins can be difficult.
  9. Thank you Clive, will be looking over next 2 weeks, will report back what I find.
  10. Thank you Clive that's great.
  11. That would be a great help, is it possible to post the relevant pages on here please. As exploded diagrams always help. Best regards Nigel.
  12. When a vehicle has the 12 pin nato socket, its usually easy to add a 7 pin too. Find the connections nearby and add the 7 core to them so giving best of both worlds.
  13. Looks a great project, my Pig came with its front and rear steel number plates (21BK96). It was base repaired and even the milometer reset to zero. So its drives like new with no oil leaks. If anyone has a working pump. Could do with one hydraulic hand pump for front vision hatch, have stripped it down and just can not get it to double pump.
