Foden Recovery - tech info required.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Are there any Foden Eka owners who have access to tech publications or repair manuals concerning the air system?

Im looking at a Foden recovery with a pain in the butt air system.

Initially the truck wouldn't build up any air pressure.

I found the cause of that (dodgy governor and sticking purge valve on the air drier) but now the truck has no pressure at the range change of PTO switch. No air pressure at the distribution block under the engine cover either.

Im guessing I have a stuck relay valve somewhere but as I have no air system diagram of tech info I'm struggling to locate the issue.

Any help much appreciated.

Thank you

Thanks Mike - Life saver.

Id like the tech description on the air system and repair section on the same. 

I'd be happy to pay for a set of manuals - disc or paper If it can be done. 

I have the operators manual and commercial parts list but can't find anything else.

Good morning. 

My name is Gavin from South Africa. 

I recently purchased a foden recovery unit. 

Can anyone be so kind as to assist me with a hydraulic schematic diagram please. 

The unit has some pipes missing and I would like to get it up and running ASAP. 



Yours Aye

Assume this is a Eka . I can probably help you out with scanned and e-mail sections of the relevant docs but since there is so much of it, could you narrow down the particular areas that you think you have missing pipes .
