Dug the truck has come back from the mechanic (Diesel Dr) this afternoon. Christchurch roads and pulling heavy loads was overheating the transmission and the tow bar was hitting the ground when going up kerbs. Common problems for builder's 4WD work vehicles.
The solution was putting a radiator on the automatic transmission to cool the oil, and big heavy coil springs on the rear axle. The truck and smaller trailer also got the WOF renewed.
All ready for another 6 months work fixing ...
