Thank you moose, yes the prices are quite reasonable i thought. Shipping is huge because of the weight of these things. I have  a lot of learning to do. Just gave it a quick once over on the weekend as I had other things to do around the house. I found loose bolts around the front left brake protector plate, wet roof lining. We have had a wet few days and i suspect the water is making its way in from the roof hatch mounting bolts. I've removed the roof lining and the backing board has suffered from water damage. I will keep it and use it as a template to make a new one. The motor starts up really easy but is a bit smokey with a strong diesely kind of smell. I'll start with draining the fuel and changing the fuel filters as there is am old service sticker on the windscreen that says the next service is due in April, 2018! I hope it is just stale fuel. A quick drive down the street had me struggling with the gear change. It seemed to be stuck in the 3-4 shift sector and then I was able to engage the 5-6 and then 7-8?  Still the 1-2 evades me. Not sure if the shift mechanism is sticking from lack of use or operator error. It is fitted with a rubber cushioned  pintle hook for towing and has air lines running to the rear of the truck for air trailer brakes I would say. A lot of learning to do on this new adventure. Thanks for any advice.
