  1. Hi folks

    I have recently bought a Leyland DAF GS 4x4 4-tonne flatbed from Withams, and intend turning it into an overland campervan for a trip down the west coast of Africa.

    I am struggling to find details on the specs of the lorry, so that I can find spares etc for it. :?

    Does anyone have specs or a list of spare parts I can use to work out what filters/belts/oils/etc I need?

    Many thanks for all your help

  3. Weren't these supposed to supersede the Bedfords? Amazing how the Bedfords just keep going!

    Personally I'd take a Bedford over a DAF any day of the week and twice on Sunday
     
  5. May i recommend a spare alternator, pulley, woodruff key and belt if nothing else?
     
  6. I've got my hands on the army manuals, but while they have the maintenance schedule they don't details model numbers for filters etc.

    Anyone know where I can get this information?

    Thanks
