So did you pull the Wabco unit out?Thanks for the compliments!
1500x21 is very rare almost everywhere I think. I will keep you in mind when I get to ordering some. Easy way out might be to get regular 10-hole truck rims 14x22.5 or something like that.
I tried to install a new air pressure regulator combined with air dryer and heater. But the tatra air compressor is always driven, and all new regulators I found require a compressor that can be offloaded when working pressure is reached. I bypassed that system but then the unit couldnt keep up with the compressor.
In the end I reverted to the standard system, but I might install a seperate dryer. Not had problems with freezing yet though.
Hello! Diesel is not really the problem, you can get it plenty, and its not that expensive in Africa. However, buying a truck and driving it to Zambia right away is asking for trouble. Not sure where you plan on buying one, but unless you get a fully restored one you will definately run into some heavy maintenance work or face serious trouble on the road. If you get a restored one this is most likely already done for you, but then you will likely run into childhood problems (bolts not tightened properly, engine adjustments, the works). If you get a cheap unrestored one, there is no saying what problems you will run in to.....
