That braided (served?) flexible fuel line is almost certain to give you trouble. They look great on the outside, but suck air causing you no end of grief (rubber is usually perished). There is one at the tank end, as well. Best replaced by rubber (you can re-use the ends) and run an earth wire to the tank so the fuel gauge works.

Good info Jarrod ... i know the tank one is U/S... mine have crimped ends... yes i still could reuse the ends. But have a bit more time up my sleeve to sort them out as i still haven't got over my radiator shock... lol... On a positive note picked up my machined inlet/exhaust manifold this afternoon and should receive a box of goodies tomorrow.

Hi all, hoping someone can identify these gear boxes... I have a parts truck D line... was after a good gear box hump. As my Cline was original 3 on the tree and suspect push pedal hand break on the kick panel. So when the gear box changed to floor shift the hole for the hand break wasn't cut that neat. So no problem i.ll pull the hump out of the D line thinking it would be all original.... but not to be... As the hole has been altered to accommodate gear box.

Looks at first glance to be a New Process NP435, standard 4 speed for light Inters.

Ah ok, i asked as sometimes when something like a Perkins has been fitted, depending on how it was done, the gearbox ends up further back than standard, and the gear stick hole in the floor gets cut bigger toward the back, but that shouldn't be the case with what you have. It really shouldn't be the case with a D Line anyhow, but is common with older models.

The handbrake bracket on the spare oily gearbox looks like it might be for a cable operated handbrake setup?, if that helps you to determine what model it might suit to help identify it.

Is the top on the C Line gearbox different from the other two? It appears to be, but hard to tell.

I'm afraid i don't know enough about the 4 speed boxes to identify them by sight.
