hi guys, i have an airport crash tender based on a heavy duty Bedford MK chassis modified by reynolds boughton. i wanted to replace my tracta seals and clean my spheres but all the seals i can find have only six bolt holes in ? mine has about twelve bolts holding it on ? it looks like an mk axle and definately has mk brakes/wheels. i wondered if any bedford experts may recognise the tracta housing as possibly off a heavier bedford, maybe TM ? kind regards ....Rob
So when i originality got my Mk it looked like it had a bit of a leak in the rear wheel hubs ( it was mentioned in the MOT) and the old owner said he got it fixed, well i cleaned away the old oil and it seems to be fine BUT, i got a leak from the rear axle, keeps driping,i put into the hole in the axle 1 and a half liter just before the weekend , i found on this forum a scan of 1 page from a manual stating that it takes 3 and a half liters so im happy i put some in ( its was full to the hole) Im gessing i have a old seal that is leaking, i feel the bottom and bit of material are coming off, not metal more like fiber, anyone know how to fix it......i keep trying to get a scan of a manual or parts list but im not having any luck,and as im in Iceland getting a reprint sent from vinntagemvmanuals is going to cost me a arm and a leg.... i dont even know the number of the seal i went for a run this last weekend for 200 or 300 km ( not to sure how far as the speedo and odmonitour packed in after the first 10 km of driving)staying the night in the truck (not to cold this time as summer is on the way) good fun and managed to find some good bad roads to play on not to far from the capital ive never tryed it ,but i know you can use stuff like Blue devil sealant in head gaskets and they have one for A/C and engine leaks on the seal but i cant find anything for rear axles....any of you guys know of something i could use to stop the leak easy or maybe you know the seal number or if it maybe another problem
