    Think you would need to compare the MAN to the T815 series, if its just versus 813, then I would have to say go with the MAN KAt1

    Hi
    Thanks for your answer.
    I'm just back from Berlin with a Tatra 813 better price and a better cabin (size) then the MAN Kat1.

    Very happy with the truck so far, had some problem with the diesel filter under the drive home auronde 1000 miles drive

    Dont buy MAN for offroading. MAN is nice for high speed "semi offroad" / "unpaved", but its not an offroad vehicle. Tatra is. Then, a MAN 4x4 uses the same amount of diesel as a Tatra 813 8x8. Tatra has the 7-seat 4 door cab, MAN has a 4-seat 2 door cab. Spare parts for Tatra are a lot cheaper too. Tatra T815 is a "luxury" version of the T813, but (on the 8x due to a longer wheelbase slightly less capable offroad (too much space between 2nd and 3rd axle).

    You'll be happy with your 813, good choice.

    Wheelbase spacing and spares pricing I totally agree with you, as always depends upon intended use and expectations

    Yes the 813 kolos

    The truck is works great but have some question on the ventils on the fuel tanks, ventil up open or down open? The bigger one return pipe ,small to the fuel pump?. I have 3 on the left tank that has no ventil is that to the heater?

    Do any no were I can get the English Handbook and the workshop manual?


    The truck will be repainted not sure which color, it has been at a towing company in Berlin in theres garage for 5 years not in use and under 11 years only been used very little.

    Here is a picture.

    Line from tank to fuel filter will be the supply feed, tank valve position I do not know which way, Duncan will know, you can disconnect to check.
    I have drivers manual, workshop repair, and parts books in English.
    I will not be home until June 10th, that's the earliest I could send them, also why I cannot answer valve position

    On the valves: up is open, down closed. Use only one tank at a time and open both feed and return valve on the same side, otherwise you will pump fuel between the tanks. Left tank has an extra fuel return line without a valve, this is the overflow from the injectors.

    The truck looks like it's in good shape, nice find!
