Just a bit of an update re tilting this cab, got the modified radiator back, almost ready to install.
Mounted the air cleaner vertically against the chassis, ran the breather pipe up the back of the cabin, stuck the pre cleaner bowl on.
Made the cab lift mechanism up out of heavy walled 40X40 square tube, one inside the other with holes drilled through to put a clevis pin through. At the moment lifting the shed up with a chain block, can get it up to about 60 degrees before it contacts the roller door.
Have the 12volt boat winch just about ready to mount on a frame, run the cable from behind (or in between) the gearboxes, up the mast
through a dual sheave and back down to the lifting hook at bottom of cabin. May look a little old fashioned, but WILL work!

Tossing up where to point the exhaust pipe, 3 inch coming out of the muffler at the moment, same side as the inlet but inside the chassis rails. Easiest thing to do would be just continue it out in a straight line, stick a 30 degree angle on it and let it come out in front of the drive axle near side. Either that or buy a 3 inch verticl muffler and stick it up behind the cabin, but then you have to have heat shields so kids don't burn their hands , yarda, yarda. Plus still have to have one of those dome shaped thingo's that the exhaust sits on when the shed comes down and seals it off. Maybe down the track.
If ever it stops raining here, once I get the cab tilt bolted on, I'll grab a few snaps and post them.

U ever thort of haven the winch so U can disconect wire rope from the shed n run thru a pully n then run it out back to winch on your next project etc
Also instead of wire rop use dyrema the soft high tensile synthetic type rope in many different capacities n many flavors

just thinkn out loud here
U kno best

ACCOs have large coil springs to counterbalance the cab weight,no other lift mechanism.......a lot of other UK trucks have torsion bars across the front pivot axis......both hard to do............the Leyland Terrier has a hydraulic push pull setup ,no springs ....not hard to fit......if a cab lifts from a single point under the LHS front area,there is a lot of twisting stress on the cab,and a lot of force on the mounting points.

Isuzu have the torsion bar job as well, the ACCO coil spring was best by a long way

I would be trying something along either of these lines as they are simple and reliable

Its much used on trawlers ,where they might have 3000m of rope ,or more ,for weight reduction......May not be very UV resistant ,tho.
