LN 700- curiosity got the better of me so I texted mark last night and he text back to say he couldn't remember. So.. I messaged Grant this morning and he reckons the fuel tank was at the rear in-between the chassis rails & it was about 50 ltrs with an electric pump to a smaller fuel tank by the Governor and a high capacity engine fuel pump in and out of the small tank to feed the burners. I reckon the fella (maybe Fred Nussio RIP) taking a photo is standing on the fuel tank. And here are some more from Mark

This photo taken by Ian Saffin was I suspect taken on the SE Freeway possibly on its way to Calder. That's my guess anyway. Ray Grima posted the photo on the White Trucks FB page.so thanks Ray and thanks Ian Saffin for taking the photo.

Greetings. Today I learnt from one of the 'Supertuners' that the 12v71T used in the Detroit Devil was then used for a stand-by generator set which went to the Tweed Heads Bowls Club. The fuel injectors were changed back to factory set and the governor back to a variable speed but that's about it so if that gen set ever goes to auction who ever gets dibs on it will be getting themselves a pretty much ready to race engine. I'll keep bugging Hammy for info and photos and live in hope that he'll find more surprises.
