Nice bit in CPM about AJ Morris. Looks as though in a previous life one of the 8Ks had worked in a noise sensitive area - enclosed engine bay and muffled rad.

Re: TS14 Single and Twin.

Angus it would probably be UMO plant that supplied the Russian dump trucks as they were the Belaz agents in the UK from what I can gather; Le Tourneau made some very interesting and different construction machines with some great ideas that never really seemed to take off.
