Yes, it is surprising what Iveco can still supply, but you will need to have part numbers handy of what you want.

Otherwise maybe Wagga Tractor Parts.

I got my bits from Midland Truck parts Eaglehawk / Bendigo. They just got the books out and walked out the back for the bits. I might have some shackle pins & bushes that need a new home.

I know little if anything about these, the later ACCO cabs were prone to rust pretty much everywhere from top to bottom and front to back
The chassis were pretty good I feel and well regarded by most that had them

The butter box ones as I said I no nothing about

Old Fargo,
I have lost your original query. Can you put it up on this thread again for everyone please. Was it just a general question as to what problem areas to look for?
Sorry I do not know anything about ACCO's either.
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!

The edges of the bonnet, and the bottom back corners of the cab are the 2 main places you will find any rust. Also open the doors and check the bottoms of the doors.
