Fresh from Holland
« on: 15 January 2024, 15:51:18 »

Hello, my ride is a 1975 CF Bedford, updated with a Vauxhall omega 2.2 automatic engine and gearbox conversion by the previous owner. Ive joint your cosy forum because of some gearbox problems. Im not a nativee English speaker so if i night insult someone consider it my mistake.
Greetings Bas

Hello and welcome to OOF. My dad had a CF on the company fleet along with a couple of Bedford TK tipper lorries back in the early 1970s.

               Maybe a little supercharger with a disengage clutch to get it up and moving and donít forget to get the nitrous impinging on the compressor wheels,  every little helps 🤣🤣

To be fair to the Desmond, it puts out about 100bhp more than anything the CF left the factory with  >:D

We eventually had the  CFs with the Holden six cylinder engine, super fast but, the brakes used to overheat, making a fast run sort of ''interesting'' ;)
