wheels and tyres are as per build plate, 10 R 20s. Diff I can't say but it came as a pretty well unmolested ex-school bus, still had the seats in it. Top speed is about 85 km/h on the flat which I thought sounded about right? I haven't got a tacho but it sounds like I'm wringing it's neck at that speed. Seems happier to sit on 80. I'm assuming the only reason to change the diff ratio would be to give it a better top speed, which it doesn't seem to have, so my guess is the diff is original too?
Having said that, a taller diff would make the speedo read slower wouldn't it? And this thing seems to run out of puff really fast when you show it a hill. Now you've got me thinking. Where could I find the actual diff ratio and what it was supposed to be?
As for the speedo, I gotta give you something to cover the postage at least. I'll try and PM you my postal address.
If I chuck it in and it reads the same, I'll have to assume the diff has been changed and I'll have a spare speedo
sorry about the silence acco, I work evenings so I'm only on the computer mornings.
I'm specifically looking for an electronic dizzy to suit the 345, but any other spares would be handy to have; fuel pump, water pump, starter. But I'm struggling to think of much else that would be small enough to post over here. I'm also interested in a 4 barrel manifold but I doubt that would fit in a postpak! In a nutshell I've got a bus running a 345 but I don't have a single spare to suit it (only played with cars previously) so I'm pretty much on the scavenge. What have you got?
Ah, okay. Sadly, I sent a stuffed but complete short 345 v8 out of a LoadStar to scrap. It stillhad the heads, rockers, covers, manifolds, sump, flywheel,etc. No one wanted it.
I do have a few others, mostly complete engines.
I am buying an Acco with a V-392 in it.
It has the 4 barrel holley and manifold.Will fit 345.
MAY be interested in selling complete motor or carb and manifold.
The truck is ex tasmania fire service (it is my profile picture) and has done a GENUINE 66782KM from new. It is fitted with a electronic distributor. Goes like a kitten. You would get a great run from the engine. Something to think about.
Also have an International D 358 Neuss diesel in an
Acco 1830B. It goes well.
Ive got a 1974 1710a acco in the shead Im looking to part with. 345 petrol been under water. no rust in cab except drivers door. Also theres a bloke in Bridgewater who use to buy a lot of ex army inter stuff. Use to do up 6WD butter box inters and such.Had creats of new parts out of surplus auctions. Inter door skins still in grease paper and things like that.
