Kiwi Kat

Beitrag von kane08 » Mi 10. Apr 2019, 03:02

Hello all
My name is Kane Lacey, I am a New Zealander currently residing in Spain and have just purchased a Spanish registered 1979 Man Kat 1.
My family and I are planning an Africa trip beginning this summer heading to South Africa.
Trucks history as far as I'm aware, it was in the Kat1 club in Spain until a few years ago then purchased by local rally driver who used it for Morocco support vehicle during rally tours.
Truck has done 63,000 kms.
I am currently refurbishing the accommodation which you can view on Instagram "Vamosnz", It had a 3 meter workshop in the rear which I have reduced to 2 meters to provide more room in the living area.
Motor and running gear is all in good condition.

I will require spare parts for the journey, alternator, starter motor, injectors, belts and so forth.
Could you gentlemen please point me in the direction of where I would be able to purchase these spare parts?

Regards,
Kane

Dear Kane,

welcome to the forum. Your KAT looks great. I am sure you will have fun.

You may find sources for some parts here.

Beside that you can also contact the forum members Marcel Kley and Achim Lust.

Of course, you can also try to buy parts at your local MAN dealer. But you have to know the part numbers and it is probably very expensive.

Best,
Emil

Hi Kane,

A warm welcome here.
A nice rig for your plan.

Ask for the spare parts catalog. Then you have the MAN numbers. That numbers you can Google with and will finde some, in most cases Russian websites, Wich compare the original spn with the original manufacturer and third party parts. Chose a brand and order it from your local dealer. It's in the most cases that simple except body parts or something like that.

Best regards

Sebastian

I think You will not get english manuals for the old Kats (462, 455 etc), because there were just build for the german army. For the newer ones (X...) MAN sold to GB etc. there is a chance to get them.

May be it will help You to get a german version and use www.deepl.com.

Thanks Andreas
I thought that might be the case.
Do you think anyone on here would have one available? or were would I be able to find one?
I have emailed my local Man dealer for parts catalog and manual but am yet to have a reply.
