Got the old girl home yestersday , 175 miles , £130 odd pounds of fuel , Penrith to Cupar left at 11 ish got home at 3 ish , one fuel stop , 50 ish mph , bit slow on the uphills , lots of waves and tooting from truck drivers and a couple of stares from the traffic cops around Carlisle. Now to get her under cover and start some tidying up . Does anyone have operating , user , manuals instructions , idiot guides , for the goddes and the auxillary pump on pdf that i could have , too many valves and openings . Jamie
  3. they are JCB 4xc 's if im not mistaken , different from the 3cx as they have same size wheels whereas 3xc have a smaller steering front wheel , presumably so they dont have to carry 2 different sized spare wheels. jamie

  5. clive due to the fact that all of the front hatches have been cut off , not by me its how i got it , i will be starting from scratch , the only problem would be the prisms on the front hatches , as the side ones that i have seen look like flat plate with a semi circle cut out for viewing , would the be an accurate representation ?

  12. How long is a piece of string , if you get in a bidding war and really want it and so does someone else , depends on condition , if it has racks with it , tyre condition etc etc etc . I know it not a figure . around the 15-20k mark . jamie
