New to you lot

Post by metalmick on Thu Dec 12, 2013 8:30 pm

not to the van
got a hijet.... tipper !
heres the tale
needed a small van to do a selfbuild with poor read narrow access so i find a hijet local, this was 7 years ago, it was one owner from surrey/sussex well down that end anyhows council parks dept, had done 30k shifting bark and soil, local only i reckon, (its R reg) a 1.2 derv and best bit it was fitted with a Tipmmaster electro hydraulic tipping mech, so no more handballing sannd and such.
anyhow we got to like it so have hung on, done about 50k now, it needed work for the test last year so luckyly its what i do so into the workshop and dropped the front X member etc and rebuilt the chjassi from froint pickups to rear spring mounts, changed the brake pipes out for coppewr and all happy, it has recently developed an engine fault and whilst starts and runs sweetly as soon as it is revved or worked above 40mph is missfires and really is not happy but thats for another palce on here
