Oliver, Bimbadeen has a Roadranger in His Acco. which is a fair bit wider & heavier than your gearbox. & normal Trolley jack is inclined to tip sideways with a Roadranger on It at Full reach. Or at least that's being My experience..

Ignore my previous comment. I did not know that Bimbadeen had a Road Ranger. They are a bit too large and heavy for the cradle and trolley jack treatment.
Sorry about that, Chief!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Morris I made up a cradle years ago for a triple counter shaft Mack box, they are very unstable at the best of time, I use it on a large trolley jack and it works fine

These Mack boxes are huge big long jobs that make a road ranger look small

I guess my point is, it can be done with a trolley jack, I just take my time and be nice and steady

I also use big long bits of all thread or long bolts cut of as once I'm near the bell housing it helps to make it stable and to my mind much safer if I'm laying underneath

Truck size trolley jack is better bet than what you buy at Supercheap et al.

Has anyone had experience in replacing the front cab mount bushes in a 1981 era Acco 1910 C or similar.
Is it a big job ??

Thank you for any advice.

Maurice.

This post and two others have been moved from a old thread into this one so the next few posts might seem a little out of order or a double up of information.


Hi Stu,
Just wondering if you still have pins for front 1981 Acco C 1910 Cab mount.

Also, any suggestions in sourcing rubber bushes for above cab mount.

Thank you.

Maurice.

I've just recently replaced the bushes in the swinging links, and i have new bushes here for the front mounts/hinges, but haven't got to fitting them yet.

I think ratchet straps or something similar will be required to hold the front of the cab down and control it while you take the hinge pins out, otherwise the cab tilt assist springs will push the cab up way more than you want/need.
