Introduce Yourself / Re: (No subject)New member
« Last post by Jim French on October 21, 2019, 07:42:02 pm »
Hello Moose. Thanks for the advise.  Chap I'm buying it from has just had all what you mentioned gone through prior to selling. So fingers crossed.
I'm guessing if anything fails it will be a hose or the like.   Got my twin brother on standby with his Mercedes 817  beavertail.  Could just drive it up on to the back of it ,but I would rather run it to get confidence. No rush 40/45 mph should be fine.  Keep the radio on and you might hear a rolling road block on the A14 😂
Got insured, there are some benefits of getting old...

Hello to all.
First ,Thank you for letting me join this forum. 
Have just become the new custodian of a 406 Agri spec.  Already the forum is proving handy re  insurance,  that done I can't wait to bring the Mog home and start  a spot of TLC
First run should be interesting, as it's around 4 hrs..... and picking a non motorway route should be quite different.  Pictures to follow.
Jim.

"I've Always Wanted A Unimog" / Wanted - 404 gearbox
« Last post by shaggy on September 28, 2019, 01:14:17 pm »
Weakest link on Ingrid now is the gearbox

- oil leak from bottom output down into torque tube (then into diff and out of the axle oil seals...)
- dodgy synchro on top
- dodgy shift from low/high between 2nd / 3rd

Rather than take ours out and fix it, Iíd rather do a recon then swap it over.

Not a desperate need, so if youíre reading this in 2020, do reply :)

Ta,

Jim

Unimog's For Sale / Re: Very low mileage U1300L
« Last post by Dan the Man on September 25, 2019, 07:08:43 am »
Good question......
AV were advertising an OM366 engine which I bought & arranged for install with AV.  My new Mog then came up for sale, and I decided to put the new engine into this one instead.
I had already delivered my Mog down to AV (200 miles away) so it was much more straightforward just to leave it with them, rather than move it to ACPrice.
Iíve no issues with ACPrice whatsoever, they did a great job on it.
It was just easier for me logistically to leave it with AV.

Curious if AC Price did the work on the vehicle why give the sale to Atkitson Vos ?
