The Foden crane is interesting. Does anyone know how the 6 wheel drive was arranged? Crew cab as well. Deutz engines, whatever next!

Re: 3C mk11

If the transmission has been overhauled you will get hours of use from that and I doubt you would want to return to a manual. We had a 1970 model for about 3 years in the late 80s and it would push well with the right conditions and right gear. You probably know all this but that era has a bit of de...

Re: 3C mk11

Looks very tidy for it's age. Is it a manual or torque converter?

Re: 1994 JCB 214 forward/reverse INOP

I am guessing this is similar to the 3CX of a similar date? Is it a non power shift with manual gear box? If a manual then place it in neutral on the main gear lever. Then short out the starter solenoid. If this works you might have a problem in the wiring with the shuttle neutral safety switch.

The 700 had a better side arm design with greater tearout and roll back (crowd) on the bucket. You could not ro...
