Used to drive a Scammel Crusader years ago, great machine, I had the 180 HP TD, big engine for its time.

Mine was a Foden with a 180 Gardner in it, 13 speed eaton twin splitter and a 2 speed axle - good fun

Sorry, I didn't notice I had put 180, of course I meant 280 Eagle, 180 was in common use in ERF, Foden, Guy etc. and 210 in Scania so the roller was considered a pretty big engine in it's day but by today's standards is fit only for a strimmer.

Yeah, you could make them sing but like you say, get it wrong and it would howl  affraid 
I'd rather have one of them than the auto boxes they use now

Just remembered, the 13 speed was actually a fuller range change, the eaton boxes I had later on in the ERF's

Had the Fuller in the Crusader, nice box but mine used to rattle because it had a PTO unit on the side for the hydraulic tipping trailer, could have done with a thinner gasket to give a tighter gear mesh.

Same here but very few about when I drove trucks in the 70's.  Mostly limited to bin lorries and buses.

The company I worked for moved to MAN 232 with a column change and splitter, fairly light on power even at 32 tons but very comfortable, I also had the Magerus Deautz 232, with a sleeper cab and a box of nails for a gearbox, so under powered you got corns on the palm of your hand.  Air cooled it was not super warm in the winter but very warm in the summer, I drove it during the hottest summer of my life, 1976, must have lost pounds through sweat and traffic jams were a nightmare.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
