Looking for some info on a 8ton 4x4 bedford TM

Hope this is the right place for this. I am looking for info on the diffs and transfercases that came in the Bedford 4x4 8ton cargo trucks. I have been looking all over the net and have not found much. Any help would be great .
Thanks Jay

PS here is a picture of the truck

I had an 8 tonner with a skid mounted meadows 27 kva on the back, (in another life) providing power to mobile operating cabins, way back in 1900 and something

It's more complex than that, they have hub reduction gears as I recall. The easiest way to find what you want is to jack the rear wheels, remove the injectors and wind it over in the various gears noting what the results are at the wheel.

Bedford built loads of variants of these vehicles with different makes of gearbox and transfer box so I would recommend studying the one you've got.
