  14. When I used to have military vehicles in the late 80s early 90s I was offer a pile of flat Nuffield engines new in crates but didn't ever take the chap up on it I wonder what happened to them. It was a dealer near Bristol had them if I remember rightly he had 20 or so I will try and remember who it was he bought them at a military auction somewhere. I went to see them and they were painted military engine green/blue £250 as I said in boxes on frames
  15. Awesome truck but buy a mk2b with single back wheels not the one with twins or had singles put on it as they are sloooooow you can make it a little quicker by turning the transfer box round and putting 12.00 /20 tyres on it that makes for an exciting drive ! Roll a cigarette between gear changes and keep her well greased they get easier to drive with use! With mine if it sat for a month or two everything used to stiffen up but got better after around 20 miles! The old 600 Leyland engine is pretty indestructible keep the oil changed and check for oil leaks. Also I do not know if any other hippos do it but both the ones I had used to jam up in the gearbox between gears and had to be towed backwards to get it out of gear. I did hundreds of miles in the ones I had and it's lovely being up high and watching the world trundle by. Also check the charging system is working as they have a mighty funny system to get juice into the batteries it's something like 24 volt lighting 12 volt charging and 6 volt starting (odd anyway). It's also worth taking the wheel nuts off and oiling the threads and keep a decent breaker bar on board I had a puncture and had to use OXY acetylene to get the nuts undone! Hope this is of help as I said they are a fabulous truck oodles of room in the back and fun to drive.
