    Daf 4x4

    aHi Doug I passed my driving test on a 1953 Commer with a crash gearbox and love two types of vehicle, big and slow or small and fast (P6 Rover manual V8). When the Daf came into service we were told not to use it as a tow/recovery truck off road as we used the MK/MJ, as the chassic can bend. For mud plucking and off road work the MJ beat the Daf hands down. The Daf I considered to be a road vehicle and gave a better ride than the MJ, going into location off road give me an MJ any time. The other factor is the MJ had bar grip tyres and not road type tyres as the Daf. Have Fun and if you are new to trucks, remember the steer you back wheels. Mick

    bedford mk tyre change

    I been part of a two man team and changed MJ and TM tyres in the field without any major problems. The wheel and tyre are placed under the side of the vehicle with the split rim facing up whilst the air is removed and replaced, so if the rim blows it will hit the under side of the load bed. Mike

    Leyland Daf 4x4 Jack

    Good Afternoon. Re Daf Jack I have checked with my MT friends and in our unit the Dafs used the same jack as the MJ. The jack is a ERN-LAKE 4ton, 6.5 inch Tower Jack, from Harvey Frost & Co Ltd. If you get stuck I have a hardly used jack with a handle in my store. Hope this helps Regards Michael

    Daf 4x4

    Hi. I find the Bedford MJ a better 4x4. Look up MOD Sales/ Whithams on the net and you should find Dafs being auctioned off. You will have to visit before bidding to be sure its a good one, all have one careful owner. Regards Mick

  13. My handle is Michael or to get paid 23932691. I collect anything British that needs looking after so the next generation can see why I never got married for the second time. My collection dates from 1937 to 1987 can be repaired with a screw driver or hammer and DOES not need a computor to tell me what has gone wrong. Other words I am from the old school, nice to meet you all.
