We'd love to be there. It'd be a great opportunity to try out the SCD before heading east in March. The problem is our engine, gearbox and transfer case are sitting on the workshop floor getting a freshen up. Rear axle bearings and seals cost me $830 last month so I'm a bit worried about the rest of it.

The whole thing started with fractured mounts on the s/steel water tank. I had to get the diff out of the way to reach the rear of the tank and then the gearbox had to come out to get a go at the front tank mounts. The turkey who made the tank only lightly stitched the mounting brackets onto the tank that when full weighs 200kg. A year of off-road chassis twisting and corrugations and you could just about shower under the tank.

Hopefully we'll have the AC working this time as well

Phil, Couldn't you have lifted the tray off complete with tank? Then again maybe it is a wagon?
Weld backing plates onto the brackets to spread the load.
Have two 60litre tanks under mine connected together with a hose that is connected to a permanently positioned 12V pressure pump. Fill them when going through last town before destination.

Good luck with your overhaul.

Cheers

It's a 3 tonne truck built into a bus. Had to get it all out the bottom because the water tank spans the top of the chassis and cannot be removed. I have to stick weld it because there's no chance of getting near it with TIG or MIG.
