My Cheap Scania R620

Postby daddycool75 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 4:09 pm

Hi All,

I purchased a scania from eBay Less than £200.00 there are a few problems with the truck back wheels are turn against each other, I think the gear box has a problem too, But that's the joys of trucking.

I will post photos soon.

cheers

Jamie

Try the rotation with the axle un-coupled first of all. It should the push along the floor. You may have to strip the rear differential and have a look see. Could be assembled wrong.

Just a thought

Found the problem with the gearbox, the spur gear was slipping when you hold the output shaft, So now it time to order the new motor. :TU

Found the next problem on the rear diff, the bevel gear output shaft is spinning in my fingers, so need to order a new one. :BH
That's what happens when the two diff are fighting against each other.

Maybe that's why I got the truck so cheap,( the joys of trucking) :lol: :lol: :lol:
