MF 698T 4wd

Recommended Posts

managed to get another ROS 600series style cab & made a decision to build a 698T & not a 675 , but this time unlike the 690 & more like the 699 i decided to fit a siku front axle.

a britains 595 chassis is the base as all 698T i've encountered have been short wheel base units

to get the height right with the front axle i had to cut into the chassis else the front would be to high

for the fixing of the floorpan, the peice of metal that holds the britains drivers seat, has been removed & filed down & peice of plastic (electrical conduit covering) is glued into the floorpan,hole drilled & a screw to hold firm.

another plastic strip is cut & a seat glued into place then placed loose ontop of the previous peice & covers the fixing screw

so far so good, the bonnet is quite rough , so a bit undecided wether to get another or to get this one made good , & yes that is a front grill from a britains landini  :(

exhaust pipe , a cotton bud bent to shape & painted

right then ,


britains rears , effectively  38in rims


pic 2

ROS rears ,effectively 34in rims

not much choice in the fronts as the ROS fronts are the same diameter as the britains, although the ROS looks a lower profile tyre & the britains are a touch wider , however the fronts are there to stay , but which rears to use , bearing in mind , 38" rims were widely fitted to the 698 but not on the 698T
