Has it done much recently?

I've not forgotten the winch levers and mudflaps, still here waiting for me to send em,
Which should happen in the next week or two as all going well I'll be moving workshops so need to tidy up.

PM me an address is possible as I lost the one I had when the old forum died.

Not really, been busy trying to sort out storeage and which vehicles I will sell, still no further forward on that!

Have been experimenting with different air filters, haven't quite got it how I want it yet. Will text you my address in a min

What's the problem you're trying to solve with the air filters?

Gotta agree It's always difficult trying to thin out a collection.

To stay on topic, a couple of my favourite pictures of it up here.

And just to show how well (nay tightly) a Serp 3.9 fits into a six cylinder FC.

I rather wish I'd managed a few more miles with it, it was a really fun truck to drive.

Whats the chassis number on this one Jeremy (PM me if you prefer) would be interesting to see if SEB had a batch. I know the gearbox was numbered 266...something...is it still running that gearbox?

Nope, running a Series III box with overdrive.

The original box is 'warehoused' up here.

It worked ok the few miles I ran it up here, although I don't believe its gone that far since it arrived down south due to various issues.

I did have it sorted so the O/D lever was in the tunnel where it would be found on a standard series though.
