  1. Thanks Robin, I've managed to get hold of a couple now, local to me. Has anyone tried Kerry for Sumb parts lately?
  2. I've got a couple of spare rims now, thanks
  3. Hello experts! Questions regarding a Simca Sumb... I realise this is an old thread, but hopefully can get some advice from those with experience of these two questions, as I have previously asked the DVLA but they could not answer: - Has anyone determined what of meant by 'running gear'? I have asked the DVLA but they could not answer the question, ave could only suggest that I make changes, then submit a report and they will determine whether the truck should keep its Historic status, which seems risky - If the original V8 petrol engine and 4-spd gearbox are not rea
  4. Hi Martin, I might have one on the garage but I do not know what condition it's in. I'll dig it out at the weekend if it's there. Otherwise it'll be at work, and unfortunately I can't travel there with the current restrictions Adam

  6. Nelson Hydraulics can supply the wheel cylinder seals, but I haven't tried to source any air pak seals
  7. I recently emailed Kerry at RR Services to enquire about spares for the Sumb, but got a brief reply saying that they were unable to help at present. Does anyone know if they still have trucks/spares?
  8. This is the link to the French manuals (thanks to Pitmole) I am steadily working through them so may be able to help with certain sections
  9. Hello MV experts, Does anyone know the maximum width of tire that can be fitted to Simca UNIC Sumb rims, instead of the original 10.5 R20? I am looking at (Unimog) 335/80 R20 or 12.5 R20, but the sellers are not sure if they will work? I'm aware there will be an increase in tire OD and need to check rubbing clearance. Thanks, Adam
