New wheels at last

Post by d1noh on Sun Jun 22, 2014 8:11 pm

Finally got my new wheels for the jet
Well new to me anyway, 
14" Steel, now these came from Germany but anybody guess what vehicles they are used on in the UK? I never realised till I got the number off them, 



Got another kit too so not a waisted deal

I got the lot last week, worked the weekend so not had any time to play, I had the front and rear springs as I don't know if there are differences, , they are all conversions done by a company in Germany called PFAU, I posted a photo before of one of their 2.8 tonne gross lwb

cool  Cool http://www.pfau-kommunalgeraete.de/index.php/en/

could you be a litle more specific about the conversion?
what ford transit type and year did it come from?
did you have to adjust something or is it a straight swap?

Most of the answer is here in this picture:-

Main component is those custom flange/hubs on the left of the photo, which I guess are made by pfau.

Ok, Only had 5 mins with a tape and seems no difference in struts length and hubs,
The 1st set is a 3 bearing set up in Piaggio hub, at a guess I would say Piaggio Porter Maxxi but the size of the front Discs are massive, i think they came off a Pfau 3 tonne, the second set came off a Pfau 1900kg and has standard size Discs

It would be interesting to know if those big discs are an "off the shelf" item. Do they use the standard caliper on a different bracket?

Calipers are the same, the difference is in the caliper bracket, dust guards were cut off due to rot

Sorry No markings



And the other thing to point out is the bearing carrier is different (not the hub)

Hmmm, this is looking more like a bespoke conversion than something we could put together I'm thinking.

Tell you what I can do,

Sale or return,

I will sell the front and rear conversion for £250, if you can get another set or get them copied within 6 months then I will buy them back for £250, you would have to collect and drop them back within 6 months if you no longer require them, they would need to come back blasted but not worried about the Zinc plating, can't say fairer than that

Thanks for the offer but I'm in the middle of moving house so I'm not in the position to be spending any money at the moment Sad
