Hi all - I’ve been missing for a while –But I’m back – (at least here anyway) – and I have ended up with a complete 77 odd Dodge DF3 “650” , Cab Over truck/chassis (12000 odd GMV).
I got it primarily for the PTO driven underbody hoist , but beyond that – there is little that is of likely much real use to me as I have Leyland “G” Cabs.
Its got a petrol 318 V8 that I was told was knackered by the farmer (haven’t tried it yet) – a new process 5 speed (no idea if it’s a od version ) – Air over hydraulic brakes with a Eaton split diff which I will be looking to keep unless I come across a Leyland one.
For its age – the cab is in quite reasonable condition with likely a touch of rust in somewhere I haven’t bothered to look at.
I will pinch the distb , carb , alternator, air comp, maybe starter from the 318 – all things to do with the hoist, diff, Power steering unit, the brake master cyl etc and the dash instruments – (and possibly anything else I reckon may be useful) – but the rest of it is very likely going to scrap around March 2020.
There are lots of useable bits on it , if you have one you are trying to fix up etc.
If you pull it (and its not something I have claimed already) – you can have it all the remains for free - its located in far west Victoria 100k odd down the Western highway from the SA boarder nowadays - but remember that everyone seems to be trying to spread Covid, so check any restrictions.
I am really looking for a “G” cab Leyland Boxer or something (there is a old Dyna on site too) – so I am open to all deals.
Just remember – you can a get it (I have tools etc about) – but way too many other things to do right now.
