Re: Classic pictures Updated 05/07/2020

Hi All, I've done some research on this one to answer some of your questions. Pete , Only seven of these were built and went into service, They were superseded by the Atkinson 6x6 units. To correct the info in my earlier post these Scammells were not 8x8s as I stated, but 8x6s. :oops: The rear steer...

Re: Petter PH1 difficult to start

HI Tony, I'm sorry I haven't been here to contribute to this post till now. If I remember rightly the spindle, (shaft), that operates the decompressor is reversible and can be fitted the wrong way round so that it would open the wrong valve I think the lever should be on the flywheel end when fitted...
