Re: Steering Box Lift Kit £48

Hi ya,

Have you ever done a replacement steering box section that is a "mini raise"?

I think it's a good time to fit a new chassis rail while the cab floor is being repaired, but I don't want to have a hump in the cab floor.

Cheers.

Re: Gearshift rod bronze bushes....anyone done it?

Out the back is the correct way, but with some "encouragement" you can get it out the front too

Re: How to identify 1950's Hella glass as LHD or RHD

On later ones the arrows point to the kerb, but as said above I didn't think the early ones had any distinction from LHD vs RHD

Re: Rascal steering rack vs rebuilt steering box

IMHO get the steering box rebuilt, but don't pay the ridiculous prices some places are charging.

Gearbox out or beam off. They're the only options.

Re: Gearshift rod bronze bushes....anyone done it?

IMHO it would be a bad move.

The stock ones are at the front and middle'ish, to allow for the gearbox movement. I know of snapped nosecones if everything is solid.

Plus bushes will transmit far more gearbox + engine "noise + vibration" into the chassis.

Re: heater tubes x2 wanted

If you're referring to the heater pods, I've got early and late sets.

If you're referring to the flexible metal section then I thought Schofields had them.
