AEC Matador 853

Not quite got the engine running yet, but getting closer - I'm currently making up some new pipework, and once that is done, I should be in a position to try getting it running again.  I wanted to get the engine completed before starting to put the cab back together.

Once the engine was running I was able to start assembling the cab, as I had been holding off putting the cab back on until the engine had been successfully run.  The cab frame was build a couple of years ago, but as I don't have the facilities to be able to lift it on in one go, it had to be assembled on the lorry, which also presented it's own challenges.  Looks a lot more like a Matador again now though.

Hi David

Thank you for confirming that for me !

I needed to know because I might have a set of 14.00 x 20 US made Goodyear NDCC tyres available soon, with full tread and even the centre moulding lines.

Regards

Pete
