Challenger project

Post #1 by FOWLER MAN » Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:50 pm

Got my 33 back home for a full restoration last week.
Took the cab off today, I haven't decided whether it will go back on as she never had a cab in 1955/6 when she was new.I put the cab on her about 1992.
Here is a photo of her ready to go in, and just to make my friend B100LOADER jealous one of her inside :lol: :lol: . Also from in there, photos of two projects in waiting, the Fordson N and Wickham pump. Trackmarshall 56 coming in next week. :thumbup:

Hello,
I've managed to remove the cab, bonnet, floor plates and belly plates this week, and given the old girl a pressure wash.
Ready to start on the engine now.
Anyone know where I can get a front half for the exhaust mannifold for the Leyland 680?
I also need a mushroom shaped pre-cleaner for the air filter with a 4 inch (100mm.) outlet. The original had a dust bottle exactly like the old D7.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Fred

Hello Holger,
"Everything comes to him who waits," or so they say.
My friend B100LOADER has come up with the Leyland Society link to prove the point. I'll get onto it now.
Thank you both for the replies.
Fred
