    Thanks For the comments guys , the J type`s got a 330 tk diesel engine + a high ratio diff.
    Gets scary at 70 mph on the motorway , get a few blasts on horns, waves, and flashing lights from drivers of trucks limited to 56mph, great fun + practical.
    Cheers. Dave.

    Hi Dave,

    Love the truck. Looks like you were lucky with the engine, all those TK 330's used to go export for strong money many years back.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Hi Russ.
    The original engine was a 300 diesel, the cylinder head bolts rusted through , bad design common fault on early engines.
    I had hell of a job trying to find a 330 as you mentioned most went for export, truck breakers wanted £1000 + with old unit in exchange. I knew of a TK motorhome which had been sat for years but the owner would`nt sell , I pestered him for months eventually he submitted and I got the lot for £500. The diff was high ratio and geared for 16 inch wheels I put this in my axle along with 20 inch Wheels now cruises at 60 with top speed 70, thats fast enough on standard running gear.
    Cheers. Dave
