Simon Posted March 24, 2009 Report Share Posted March 24, 2009 I am like lighting.... just call me Mr Speedy Thought i'd tackle this last night while I was waiting for the filler to dry on the Renault. If anyone fancies this here is how I did it, it may be old news but someone may find it useful.... I bought an Ertl Ford NH 8670 at Tractor World and was disappointed to find that it only had a really crap towing ring and no really crap Ertl linkage... so... Typically I forgot to take a picture of it before I started but you know what I mean... You will need: Ertl 8670 - Â£18 from G&M Siku hitch - Â£2.50 from Farm Models Drill with 3mm approx bit Dremel with cutting disc Sturdy fine flat screwdriver Small phillips screwdriver Craft knife Pliers, needle nose or fine normal ones Superglue First, tackle the back wheels, I hate the Ertl axles with the collar on, I got mine off by prying the collar up with a screwdriver until I could get the pliers on it and pull it off to withdraw the axle. Then undo the 2 screws holding the cab on, one under each mudguard Dril out the 5 rivets holding the casting together, there's one below the side of the headlights, one in the weight frame, one under the dash, one under the rear axle & one in a deep recess behind the steps. Slit the decals which cross the 2 halves of the casting, these being the front grill, dash instruments and the warning triangle behind the cab. Pry the casting apart with the flat screwdriver...
