Ooo...didn't have that on the one I replaced.....perhaps that's why I had to replace it....?

Anyway, somewhere, I'd do have a selection of used LD bits for the headlight area..bowls, mountings, panels (I think) if anyone needs bits, let me know...plus two new front bumpers, an air filter assembley and some other bits I can't think of.....

What's the air filter assembly like? is it the cylindrical type about 275 diameter by 350mm long? That's a part of my Gaz-Cummins that is still to be decided

I didn't realise at first they weren't all like this but it's become increasingly apparent they aren't. Though the electrics work well even after a dunking the downside is that condensation builds easily within the unit which is what killed mine - I guess both ways eventually leads to the bowl rotting.

BTW, went to the Haynes' Motor Museum over Christmas on your recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great place for fans of classic cars.

PM sent. Be very interested in those if you can dig them out John.

Hi,
I know a bit of time has passed on this one. I too have a Leyland Daf T244 with rusty wheel arches. I contacted my local dealer with the part numbers supplied but told that they are not obtainable.
How have you guys now solved the problem?
Thanks
Dave :D

Dave, Facebook T244 forum said Motorcraft were developing GRP wheel arches for £275 a pair (I think). May be an option.

As an aside, this forum is now pretty well mothballed. Try overlandingtrucks.com
