Hello,

MAN KAT OAF 4X4 FROM 1984

Are these Kat's any good ?

MAN engine V10 turbo water cooled. are these good engines ? I think D2840 engine types.

Is the Allison autobox a good gearbox ? Strong and reliable ?

Thanks for information !

Hello,

You mean that airport fire fighter truck?

It's fast, lots of power (440 PS) for just 16 tons.

There are the usual disadvantages of a ÖAF truck. But the more weak frame doesn't matter for a 4x4 and they all rust.

It has no winch.

At the moment, I don't know, if it has a differential lock at the front axle, but I think so.

A perfect base for a fast rallye truck.

I bought one, but it's still not here, because the vendor should make TÜV, 16" tieres and the regisrtration as oldtimer.
I'm not in a hurry, because I got too much projects. But if I make it a rallye truck, I would turn the drivetrain 180 degrees, so the motor is in the rear. You can do that, because at a 4x4 you can also turn the differential housings in the axles to get the right driving direction again. Then you can build a light, powerfull truck with a good wight balance.

greetings
Hugo
