Welcome to the forum.
What sort of TLC does the 1174 need?

It needs some cosmetic work, some body work (mostly on the cab), the injector pump isnt to good and the wiring is shot. Other than that she's fairly tidy.
I belive she was imported back from Japan and sold to the dealer/ collector i bourght her off of at the begining of the year.


As i got her.

Nice! Looks like you have some work to do on the cab :)
Mark Osborne will help you out with a new wiring loom.

Thanks :D

The rust isnt to bad over most of the cab, the rearly bad bits are the right hand wing and the sunroof where its had an aftermarket air con system fitted. I do need a door and a rear window though.

I hadn't thought about trying Osbournes for a wiring loom, i'll have to give them a call.

You can try Stewart Trailers in Scotland for parts for the Hara-cab. The owner is a genuine county-fan and fabricates parts for the cab in his shop. I think he can supply all the parts you need. I saw Mark had 1174 wiring looms for sale at his stand at the Blue Force Conversions Day in Lincoln a couple of monthis ago :)

Thanks Frode, I called Mark at Osbourns the other day and he keeps 1174 looms on the self, It turns out the crispy fried loom problem isnt uncommon :roll: I'm going to take a trip down there to get a few bits when im home next.

Hi Stew1174,

That's a great County, you have! 8)
Must be quite impressive to drive?!

I hope you will find the parts you need.
Best regards,
Pascal
