Postby julianf » Thu Apr 04, 2019 2:53 pm

I've gone to see a truck, am on location, people showing don't know the vehical, and none of us can get the brake off.

Anyone happy to have a chat to me on the phone? I'm an hour from home so..

Thank you.

Ok, so im home now...

Daf t244. Been stood for a couple of months.

Started ok. I mean a bit of cranking, but seemed ok.

Brakes stuck. Handbrake by seat seemed to do nothing. Trailer switch thing on center console i would imagine is nothing to do with it, but did nothing.

Eventually someone else managed to get them off, they reckon, by turning the steering.

Did a test drive round a grass field.

Seemed gutless. As in couldnt get from revving out in 1st into 2nd without the revs dropping. But would roll fine, so did not seem like it was still brakes. Got stuck, dif lock works.

No action from high low lever. Just floppy really. Was going about 5mph in 1st at 1500rpm.

I walked away but can go back tomorrow, but if there is anyone about who is familiar with t244s that i could have a chat to on the phone, that would be superb.

Thank you,
Julian

Hi Julian, I think we have "spoken" on the T244 page on FB?

I think you have been sorted now though? If not we can chat, but I am still roaming around the Humber as I mentioned.....

If I can help then just let me know buddy.

PS, I like your 101! I have all the original Land-Rover manuals for one of those including the Parts catalogue.... never did buy one though!!!!!
