    a question for experienced MMLC Drops drivers

    Assuming that you had a test drive before buying the lorry, has the ride become worse or are you just noticing the problem because you are driving it further. Nothing to lose in asking the seller what he thought about the ride when he owned it and what might have happened to cause the judder/vibration if it is not normal.

    bedford tm 4x4

    Assuming that all the CAV pumps are the same basic design these sites may help:- http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/index.php?threads/help-cav-injector-pump-fuel-increase.33688/ https://thefarmingforum.co.uk/index.php?threads/turning-up-fuel-pump-john-deere-2140.120570/ https://www.sbmar.com/articles/lucas-cav-dpa-injection-pump-instruction-book/ Also, check that the throttle lever on the pump has maximum travel. Tuning the pump may shorten the life of the engine. Do you have to inform your Canadian insurance companies or the equivalent of our Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency about any vehicle modifications?

    Link arm bushes

    Have you looked at poly bushes? On this site they are an interference fit:- http://www.polybush.co.uk/pages/why-use-polybush Polybush's are fitted using normal workshop tools and equipment. Our bushes are designed to fit in the same way as original equipment bushes. Due to our interference fit no grease is needed, leaving customers with a real fit and forget solution. Where necessary, Polybush use low friction material to ensure free movement of the bush with mating components.

    Link arm bushes

    Is the problem that you are giving them imperial not metric dimensions? Even if the bushes that you are replacing are imperial, have you looked for the (nearest) metric equivalent?
  19. If you can't find an original badge, have a look at Pamela David Enamels (you may have similar in Australia):- http://www.badgecraft.co.uk/index.htm Another method, if you can borrow a badge is to make your own. Search "diy cast car badge" and you will have a number of YouTube videos to help you.
