I really like the black on the new engine. What HP level is it set at now? Are you running a intercooler at all?

Set to Stock figure configeration. When I went to look at the new engines after the first one failed the intercooled version we decided would not fit under the bonnet and for the weight of the vehicle an intercooled version would not have made much difference to the power.

Waiting for Photographers can be disapointing. I am tired of waiting on Truckin Life magazine as they have arranged to send a photographer that never turns up and have done this to me a couple of times.

In the mean time I have had a photographer from Big Rigs call and take some photos so that will happen very soon.

Diesel Power magazine have added it to the website and I am told it will be in the June issue.

Here is a link for you

:thumbup: Flathead / Sidevalve just a couple of different names for the old Ford engine.
Some of the trucks like mine had V8's and others had a flat six.

Now this will be something different for many. The F4 has appeared on a Biscuit Tin. These tins are made in limited numbers and are very collectable.

I think you refer to the Forward Control British Truck in Green and Yellow and I think it is a Leyland. The only left hand drive vehicles here in trucks would be dual control meaning sterring on both sides and that would not be so in the truck you refer to. A lot of the Jap trucks can be dual control.

:thumbup: :D Thank you. I wonder what Cummins it has in it ? Sounds interesting.
I have heard from a few people I know within Cummins that some of my ideas have since been copied.
May I correct you on the spelling of Castlemaine :beer:

:roll: :? Air Con system has dropped all the gas refrigerant again. This time I will have to get it filled with nitrogen to find the leak. :evil:

About ready to test the Air Con system for the 5th time with Nitrogen. One of those things I can not do myself as you have to have qualifications to do this. Shows you need to choose wisely who makes up and installs for you. The same firm let me down on a few other things as well.
I have had to re crimp and replace fittings in the whole system.

On a more cheerful note http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7X1u8n5Ppg about the 3 min 45 mark you can see the truck leaving the Castlemaine Truck show this year (2013).

Finally the F4 has been re released on the Biscuit tin. Was so popular last time.

You mean nitrogen is a controlled substance in OZ? I'd think they would let you test it, make the repairs then let the other guys charge it.

Yes Nitrogen is the best way to test an Air Con system for a leak and no it is not controlled. I could do the test myself but then I have no further use for a bottle of Nitrogen as that is the only controlling factor. Easier to let those qualified test it and find the leaks then I just do the hard work.

5th test will be tomorrow now. Hopefully we can then re gas it. :)

Working again at last. Can only blame poor workmanship by the qualified ( :evil: Seriously is he qualified) installer.

Also of interest both tow vehicles for that trailer are inline 6 powered as the other vehicle I use is the 1969 International 4x4 truck.
