Re: Ford 7000 Schindler 4wd

Hi, The 4wd conversion was not a factory option, so it was done by the dealer. Schindler was a Swiss company. Many German Fords have a Schindler front axle, some Dutch too. Parts are pretty difficult to obtain. I have some drawings of some types of Schindler front axles. There's a topic on this boar...

Wow!
What an extremely great series of pictures!! Thank you for sharing!
Quite some County's over there. I really like the 4000-4 in the second series!

Hi Dave,

Thank you very much for your reply! Much appreciated!

Thank you in advance!
