  7. hi everyone after reading the pages and looking at pictures for some time now me and ourkid have both decided to join up alot of info is available on here, which is very good to see and more info is often added as some of you are aware after reading on threads i recently bought a scammell (after many years of wanting one) it was advertised in cmv mag and needed some work, price was haggled on as scammell had been for sale for some time and needing space the owner decided to sell for a very reduced price so a low loader was sent to watford to return the scammell home to barrow in furness when the scammell arrived it didnt look that bad and after 2 nights work air tanks/wheell arches/trackbox and a bit of wiring the scammell was taxed on red and on the road awsome!! a couple of short journeys and some light off road use went by and i decided to take it further out of barrow for a run i regretted this as to my horror the engine and i quote from one of your posts went SNAP CRACCKLE AND POP!! then the scammell was retired to the back of the shed for a couple of weeks i then removed the sump and realised the engine was scrap all the caps had spun the shells and welded themselves to the crank and yes it had oil and water in !! i began the search for an engine found a few 680s for 1500 + vat maybe this was going to become an expensive scammell after all... then looking at the old add in the cmv i saw a 690 turbo for sale for 500 but it was in bournemouth oh dear i drove down loaded up and drove straight back what a journey at this point i had 6 weeks to get everthing sorted for the scammells first show.. 690 turbos ARE NOT A DIREST REPLACEMENT as i had thought lots to change but had to do it for the whistle of the turbo made it to the first show driven 28 miles each way engine great vibration bad hope this post is not too long to get things off to a start with us im sure arkid will give as much info as i have on his what he keeps telling me is a proper scammell just because im jibless and my windsceens are not origional oh and my back body has no boxes but im working on all them thanks guys chris alderson
