    The old merc was what came and got our milk 90% of the time, I think they put it on that run as they knew she could take the bumps and bruises and keep coming back for more, some of the newer trucks would have been wrecked the first time they attempted to do that run, they also used to come out with an old V8 two stroke International, shit that thing sounded awesome!

    I used to drive an old Bedford with a 2stroke jimmy in it.
    I stalled it in the middle of a large intersection once trying a too taller gear to get moving, and the fucken thing started up in reverse order! White smoke pouring out of the air cleaner, and noise! I fair shit ay. Turned it off, counted to five, and restarted, luckily the fucken thing fired in the right motor direction and off I went with nerves a bit shattered as I really thought I'd broken it. Big lesson that was for me.

    I used to love sitting in the passenger seat of dads commer when moving the fiatallas or D6, wowfully underpowered but that 3 cylinder 6 pistoned one crankshafted supercharged 2stroke could SCREAM and did constantly.

    And heres one being driven extremely sedately unladen by the sounds of it.

    with the D6 on the lowbed it was crawler gear to get round the esses that used to be halfway up this side of spooners

    I have rebuilt a few of the old commer knocker engines Vietnamcam

    And the right angle intake on the supercharger was perfect for mounting on the side of Holden straight 6 engines

    One of our crew did this a while back. Went in just after he'd done it. Was only a piece of stone sticking out the side of the bank. Trouble was it was attached to the 'mother rock' that was made of better stuff than abit of alloy

    You'd rather that than a steel rim bouncing the truck over on its arse though.

    Last week in the Northern Territory, out the back of Bumfuck & beyond, chopper made two trips back to camp ferrying the stranded. Needs a whole new front end.
