  1. took my daf with my ot-90 on it for a spin, it was 25 deg out side and the temp gauge went up to about 110 deg on the gauge, but didnt blow steam etc.. is this normal crappy leyland gauges or should i worry?
  2. ok cool, cheers wally.. is there any way of finding out its unit history etc?
  3. out of curiosity? which unit did my drops come from?

  8. no not at all, its self straightens when the rack touches the rollers, just make sure it hits the rollers :-) the hardest bit is aligning the vehicle onto the ramp when your on your own.
  9. my drops only changes up gears when its at 2000 rpm! is this normal? i have checked the throttle position valve and seems ok..
  10. Daf drops is now road registered on a 'J' plate 1992.
  11. Paul, you would have to change all the wheels over as just changing the rears would also wind up the transfer box etc.. then your center of gravity will change quite a bit! what they really need is an over drive unit.
