nice..love em both
just love the truck!
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.
nice fleet of motor's .
trucks the dogs ******,
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.
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.
