TRANSFER GEARBOX AND PROPSHAFTS
AL.AGB 8 Two Speed Transfer Gearbox. Ratio 1 to 1 and
1.75 to 1. Front axle drive engagement under driver’s
control. Hi-Lo Ratio change and front axle engagement
are actuated by pneumatic cylinders, and these are
controlled by cab dashboard mounted switches operating
solenoid air valves.
The transfer gearbox is separately mounted to the frame,
and the drive from the gearbox is taken by a short
prop-shaft connecting the output flange of the gearbox
and the input flange of the transfer case. Prop-shafts
take the drive from the transfer gearbox to each axle.
Model R145. Single Reduction Axles. Ratio is 6.83 to 1.
Reduction is by hypoid gearing. The rear axle is
available as standard with an air actuated cross lock.
This is pneumatically actuated and controlled by a
dashboard mounted switch operating a solenoid air valve.
The front axle incorporates a double
universal joint on the pivot centre, giving constant
velocity to the road wheels on a turn, and hence an
absence of vibration. Maximum inner lock angle is 36°.
FRONT AXLE ENGAGEMENT AND DIFFERENTIAL
front axle engagement and differential locking is
controlled by two switches:
1. Front axle drive engagement
2. Cross differential lock in rear
In addition dashboard mounted switches control transfer
case ratio change (high or low ratio). The front axle
drive must be engaged before Transfer Gearbox Low Ratio

is a steel pressed cab incorporating box section
strengthening members, and fully treated against
corrosion by electro dip paint and wax injection. It
incorporates a rear sleeper berth, and a roof hatch. The
rear sleeper berth may also be used as two additional
seating positions if required. A tool box is mounted
under the sleeper berth. A cab heating and demisting
system is also incorporated. The front access panel and
grill are steel.

cab tilts to allow service access to the engine. Cab
tilting is accomplished by a hydraulic tilt mechanism
powered by a chassis mounted handpump. The cab is
mounted on flexible rubber front mounts, and rear
front screen is laminated glass and the side and rear
screens are toughened glass. The cab is fitted with two
windscreen wipers, and these are selectable two speed
and intermittent wipe. An electric screen wash system is
fitted. Two large rear view mirrors are fitted, and a
small convex ‘kerb-view’ mirror is also fitted for
safety in urban traffic. A horn is also fitted. The cab
has a roof mounted interior light, and an additional
‘map reading’ light.
