CCKW truck in for a service
My CCKW due to its age is considered a historic vehicle by the DVLA and as such is exempt from requiring an annual MOT. Owners self-authorise the road-worthiness of their vehicles. From my point of view whilst it's a relief not to have to face the trauma of a MOT on such old vehicle I do want to be safe on the road. To that end 2 years ago I put the truck in for a safety inspection (Link) and it's now time for another. I'm using a specialist company called MV Depot who are based here in Yorkshire. Adam Wright the owner is very experienced with CCKWs and having taken all the wheels off and inspected it all over, I'm following his recommendation and having the all the brake cylinders and hub seals renewed. Here's a couple of pics from yesterday and today.
