Apologies for lack of updates on here, a few pics should help. All brakes been off cleaned and back on, radiator been re cored and tank fittings altered to suit.

Progress 👍

Still moving in the right direction, power steering pump has had new lines fitted, wheels should be back from blasters this week and hopefully fuel tank back on this weekend. 

Thanks to @Samro for the time taken in saving many parts from another truck including the good tank I now have.

Getting there !

Those 16.00s look good on the front, did you manage to find a complete set of the AEC wheels?

Cheers Mike, I’m still looking for 2 to finish the set off, the tyre was mounted temporarily to make sure we had clearance at the front.

Cheers

Looking better with the tyres on now, busy with the brake hose replacement.

 Sounds nice running , but I think you will find it incredibly slow , the B81  would allow 40/45mph cruise before running into rev limiter that was at 3750 IIRC  . Some time after I sold mine a new owner converted it to diesel , not sure if Cummins or leyland , but it resulted in it being scrapped :(  . Mine was a Gun tractor I converted to wrecker , (pics on forum)  . I think the wrecker version were also lower geared than the gun tractor (not sure on that) .
