Default ?

I guess the tray under the second one means it's a Ford?

Excellent - a National Forge and Ordnance 37 mm AT Gun (see help identify Dutch AT Gun).

No, but the cab and chassis indicate a Ford. These trays were all built by Holden - the one on the F15A has been modified with patches over the wheel valances. Many of these trays had lockers there.

Keith,

I think Lynn was refering to the drip trays under the Ford, infuring that products of that company have problems with retention of their fluids.

Default Oh yeas...

Oops - y'know I can only call that a senior moment on my part - I now recall looking at it when Lynn first posted and thinking "yeah - right" but this morning, at around 5.30AM when I saw it I must've been half asleep! DUH!

While Fords may require drip trays to catch falling liquids, GM products are trained to use boxes filled with kittylitter to catch the occasional drop of oil.

Take a look under my C60 at an environmentally conscious setting such as national parks.

Default Oil leaks

Old vehicles seem to be rather prone to oil leaks - with the rear main engine oil seal often causing trouble with Fords - when I drove a FGT from Sydney to Melbourne in the 70s oil on the clutch became such a poblem the journey was only just completed with top gear only possible going downhill with a tailwind and minimum throttle!
Other places for leaks are transfer case lower seals, pinions, and in partucular the gearbox tyre pump is a bad culprit.

Keith,

Don't worry, that is what is called a "Senior moment", I get a few, but hope no one has spotted them
