New Project From Mercedes 911 to 914=>920

#1 Beitrag von Tim911 » 2019-10-03 10:23:49

Hello everyone,

Sorry for not writing in German, Our German isn't that good so I'm going to write in English.

We (Tinka also known as Tim & Ninka) have started a new project after finishing and traveling around in my trustful Mercedes LA 911 B truck. (Total Rebuilding a 911)
klein 1.jpg

We have been traveling from Portugal to white Russia with our old truck and now its time for a new truck build so we want to plan our journey to Africa.

After looking around for a new truck we have found an Mercedes 914 AK in the City nearby out village. I have asked my girl to check it out, she is a first mechanic at Scania Holland, we and bought our new project.
This Mercedes was fitted with a crane with platform, a OM366 with hydraulic pomp , single tires and good condition and has driven 86.000km.

After sketching, drawing we started to plan the build the truck. First part selling the crane and platform.
A guy from the north of Holland called me op wo wanted to buy the crane, a small drive of 400 km of the north of Holland was also a good test drive ,so I went to over there.

Sold the crane and sold the platform ready to start the build

Step one: New engine with gearbox. First we want to have some more PS. We already have bigger tires but we wanted to reduce the rpm so also a new gearbox.
After a while we have found a complete powerpack by Annema Trucks in the top of Holland. Great people over there. We called the up if we could check the engine before buying it and that was no problem at all. So me and my girlfriend went over there and checked the powerpack a OM366LA with GV 4/95 -6 /9.0 gearbox and the complete front from the chassis. (this came in handy beacause of all the extra parts we could use)

After bringing it back home we took the engine with gearbox from the chassis and did a complete service and renewed the parts like clutsch bearings etc.and a big bath of course

Good luck for this project. Nice idea with the 200hp engine.
Do you plan to switch the shelter to the 920?

Hej, love to follow your project. I would have little concernes if the convex tank placed on rectangular consoles together with the rubber-granulate-mat are compensating the forces occuring while rough driving mode, the tank could be damaged since you have no formfit, I wonder if convex tank consoles wouldn‘t suit better. Alternatively a block which repeats the shape of the tank upside but rectangular downside.

thanks you for your remak.

the rubber-granulate-mat is formed in the shape of the tank so it's suports fully

Hi there

Time for the nex part. Truck is back home and because of the subframe I first want to replace the batteries and airtanks. Because I wanted to create more space below the box for storage and an extra diesel tank on the left side, I have decided to place the batteries above each other and place the air tanks including all air valves in the chassis.

In the meanwhile I have started drawing the box and starting to build the subframe

After drawing some sketches and measuring this is what I came up with for the box
klein 1.JPG
So now the measurements are ready for the box time to make the subframe. During the time for building the subframe I started checking out compagnies for making the box or getting the sandwichpanels .
I have built several subframes in the past so I got some experience with this project
So I ordered materials for my own and made de decision to place the pox on twist locks so I can easily take the box of.
Because off this construction I need to build two frames. The frame that attaches to the box and the subframe for the truck. Lets start with the truck parts so firts the brackets and mountingplates to the truck.
