Well, rebuild is coming along slower than expected. Got the cab on referred chassis fo final fitting only to find nothing fits from XT to LT cab. Have rebuilt complete tunnel section to house gear / 4x4 shifter. The XT shifter sits about 100mm to the drivers side than the LT so linkages don't line up, also lifted cab 50mm from STD which didn't help. We've installed air hand brake so hope it all works. Will post pics soon.

David,you can use the NT set up,you just need to make up some brakets,The Maxi brake is quiet compact,just make sure that you will fit an auxiliary tank for emergency release on a separate air circuit in case that you have a sudden loss of air pressure you can move safely until you come to a stop without damaging the drivetrain.
How is your Engine conversion going.....Photos???
Cheers,Joe

Haven't seen the NT unit, didn't know it was air. This is a truck maxi supplied by air tank fitted at the rear. It was to be a small maxi but ended up the size used for drive trains .
