  1. Hi Richard Farrant, "I have worked on a number of Nubians years ago and from my recollections, I think you have the gear lever the wrong way around, the bend should be towards the engine. You are absolutely right! It was put in a hurry just to check the gearbox in the Wrong way... Thanks to tell us!
  2. Hi Vassa, Thanks a lot for your cooperation! I really appreciate this! By the way..Yes the engine in the pics is a Ford flat head V8, now it's working perfectly. "Is it a Sun Engineering body, there maybe a makers plate in the cab, I know some guys who worked for them who may have photos of that type." If you could ask for some photos or info to these guys, it could be so helpful. Thanks again!
