  1. I've recently bought a 1993 Leyland Daf MMLC and she's a beautiful beast, quite a step up from my Bedford MJ however I was expecting a little better motorway speed. I've heard a rumour that when the drops fleet was first delivered to Germany that there was a 7th gear to enable reasonable delivery times/speed and that once at depots the top gear was immobilised to leave the current performance limited to 45MPH. Does anyone have any positive knowledge as the whether this is just a rumour/urban myth or whether there is a 'hidden' 7th gear on these trucks?

  4. I have recently got myself a ferret project, it was a restored vehicle but unfortunately the shed where it was stored caught fire and caused a lot of cosmetic damage, as well as melting a good part of the wiring loom. The owner then dragged it outside where it sat in the weather for quite a few years, this has caused more damage than the fire. I have been working towards getting it running and driving, just to make sure I have a good gearbox and engine before I strip it down completely for restoration. I have freed up the frozen pedals and got the engine running and have started on the gearbox. Opening the top cover of the box reveals very clean internals with very little rust, this was a nice surprise. That's where the good news stopped though as the gear change pedal doesn't seem to do anything, I can move the gear change lever on the side of the box through it's full range of movement by hand, it is obviously not engaging the busbar. I started to open the side cover where the spring is but got nervous and stopped when there was obviously a lot of spring pressure behind it. Has anyone seen this problem before, or can anyone advise me of how to fix it? Is it possible for the busbar pushrod to fall out of position? With thanks
  5. Hi Im in Iceland and parts are very expensive to get up here ( with the postage and high tax as we are not eu) i have a Bedford MK and im looking around for parts in Iceland, ive seen some TK around from the 70s and possabley even the 60s, do you think a gearbox from a TK would work for a MK there is also a lot of old green goddesses around...any chance some of the parts from that would be usefull for a MK
  6. Does anyone have any details of any jeep specialists in the NE of England? I need a gearbox rebuild and there doesn't seem to be anyone in the area? Your help is appreciated. Cheers Chris :undecided:
  7. A friend of mine has just bought a Jeep, without boring you all with the details, this supposedly professionally rebuilt Jeep, isn't !! The net result is apart from various other things which we can help him sort the gearbox jumps out of second on over-run badly, I know its not unusual but this one is extreme and it leaks a lot of oil, again I know they are not perfect but this leaves an oil patch the size of a top hat over night, its also nowhere near as smooth changing as mine. Getting the box out is not a problem but can anybody please suggest somewhere to either get this box re-built or a replacement box supplied. My friend is new to MV's so it would be good if I could try and help him out with a sensible solution. We are based in Somerset. Thanks Andy
  8. Hi everyone, This is my second introduction (not sure what I have to do to get past this stage :-\) I am trying to work out exactly what engine, gearbox and differential oil I should be using for my 1943 Fordson WOT2 I have been given some advice already for which I am very grateful but wondered if anybody else had an opinion. Is it really that important!! I spoke to Morris Lubrication and they suggested Golden Film AG140 for the engine although I see that this is primarily a gearbox oil. They also suggested Golden Film SAE40 for the diff. Any suggestions would be gratefully received :-D
  9. Hi, Anyone out there have any experience in removing the gearbox from a Snatch Land Rover? I'm in the process of stripping out the seat base, on the basis that in a standard Landy you can remove the floor to access the gearbox. But the more I remove, look and prod, the less it looks like the floor will come out. Do I have to remove the gearbox from underneath? Is it possible to remove all the bolts holding the bellhousing to the engine? Or do I need to remove engine and gearbox together. Any and all advice gratefully recieved. Cheers, Julian
  10. Hi, Probably a silly question but is there an easy way of taking the gearstick of a CCKW gearbox to aid removing the engine/box as one unit without removing the top plate & selectors? Thanks for any advice offered Don
