I see on Unimog Exchange that he has listed it as sold. Someone got a nice buy despite the potential logistical hassle.I have not heard from patrol yet and unfortunately do not have his number. I have a trucker in the area that hauled the two 404 out of California and is now getting the little bus for my camper experiment on a 404. He is coming thru massachusets this day so I hope we can get something going before the trucker is gone out of the area. This trucker goes regulary to the west cost so may be he can take it along for an acceptable price.. but yeah shipping is expensive.
that someone would be me, I will start a new thread with the transmission problem somewhere next week. It arrived this morning at 7.30 and rolled nicely of the trailer.. It is cold here in the NE and a wind is blowing so no work on it yet.I see on Unimog Exchange that he has listed it as sold. Someone got a nice buy despite the potential logistical hassle.
Have fun. Scott at EI referred me to a retired Unimog mechanic, Tony ? in his area a few years back. I give him a call about some work on a 1300 and he mentioned that he was previously a Case MB94 mechanic and was there during the trials for the SEE. He spent his subsequent career teaching military mechanics on servicing the SEE. He mentioned he did a lot of transmission rebuilds as his comment was that many folks shifted far too quickly. When the SEE went away he retired but as of few years ago he was still doing Unimog work. He does not work for free but could be a resource on the wrong side of the country.
Yea, that's a beefy set of axles there.... or a total disregard for safe towing. Probably the former.
Here I was thinking it was looking awfully cramped under the SEE haha!I did on my tractor, using a Surplus Center valve, but haven't had a need for one on the SEE yet.
Given the very cramped space available on the tractor, putting one on a SEE has to be easier.
