As someone who works for a Paccar brand in the US, I loved seeing that ISB with the Paccar badges. Good choice in motor.

No one suggested 50cc outboard 2-stroke engine. Hmm. It's too bad the more supermodels doing this kind of work.

There's probably 200 dollars worth of copper in those cables and wires. I hope you didn't just bin them, and instead took them to a recycler or scrap yard, it may be worth your time if you still have them.

Late to the party. I hope the Dover engine is going in a fiat 126 and there is a custom aluminium subframe going in.

Is all that rust really ok structurally? Also, what's the importance of the "cargo" as it's referred to? As a layman who's never owned a vehicle longer that 2050mm I would have thought it would be easier to build a box on the DAF than transfer all the guts to the box, but clearly not.

Oh lads you should have kept the Dover at least that was balanced. That TERRIBLE thing is going to shake that old Cargo to bits. Its an awful engine. As an ex IVECO mechanic now driver I can only describe that engine as (pls excuse my language) Dogshit.

So, the engine swap already brings them down to their desired weight and the axle swap they did in the last episode posted adds even more lightness. Are we going to see sub 4 tons empty weight with the floor, axle and engine swap?

I dunno gents that engine seems a little small for that Ford, especially considering what you are planning to do with it. But slow and steady wins the race I guess. Or something like that lol

The engine fitted to the precusor of those small DAF trucks until 2001 (Cummins 6BT) was similar to the original Ford engine but with a turbo! The same downsizing (from 6BT to ISB3.9) was done with small and medium size single deck buses at the same time, as they realised that the 16-valve head and common-rail injection really did make a big difference.

Does your truck have duel rear wheels (each side), if not (surprised) are you planning to add a tag axle to take the load of the conversion and Binky? Just "Buzzard" that DAF (to add duel fuel tanks, tag axle, exhaust, etc...?).

That's where you went wrong, should have used Daf removed box van and transfer to Daf, if necessary cut chassis at rear of Cargo to position rear wheels in body wells.job done.

MrPostman164 Vuosi sitten
So silly question time why didn't you just put the body on the DAF chassis??
Ruben Kelevra
Ruben Kelevra Vuosi sitten
@MrPostman164 well you would need to increase the wheel base, which is a pain in the a... since you have to weld the whole frame. So it's actually easier to use just the longer frame.
MrPostman164 Vuosi sitten
@Ruben Kelevra I was just thinking if they were going to use so much of the DAF would it not be easier to so a body swap thanks for clearing that up should call it the DaFord

Why not extend the DAF chassis and build a new insulated body for the back end? Add another back axle to keep the bracket making skills up to snuff. Regardless, are you planning to fit slide-out boxes like all good American caravans/RVs?

Try and find an old IVECO 75E15 6 potter that was a beautiful engine.
MrJimbaloid Vuosi sitten
Lads use nylocks AND lock washers on everything you do from this point forward because you will never meet a more unbalanced engine at tickover. When I worked for IVECO the joke was I t V ibrates E verything C omes O ff. And I'm not kidding they wrecked clutches and flywheels like it was going out of fashion. Daf's however had a beefief clutch so the end result was the poor old gearbox got it instead.
