Re: Denning dash lights.

Hi George

If it is non DDEC with a seperate speedo and tacho it should have two rows of lights along the top of the dash. If so and all is standard than the light you have on is the Alt light.

Just curious Is it a bus or motorhome?

Hi Adam Great idea, I for one would love to see and hear more about your progress. I too once dreamed about putting a Kenworth aerodyne cab on a Denning Landseer, But some rough photoshop pictures didn't quiet show the results I had hoped. That and I don't have the skills to actually build the thing...

Re: Help to identify conversion

Hi NevilleJames If you have a normal Landseer than the chassis rails are practically hard up against the floor each side of the isle. The isle is acyually sunk between the chassis rails, so lowering the floor may be a more expensive exercise than raising the roof. Although a roof raise for $25000 is...

Re: Go big or go bus

Hi I reckon you can't go wrong with a Landseer, or maybe even something a bit more modern like a Austral Denning or MCA as the Landseers are getting up to 30 years old now. But I would suggest looking around for one already converted, there is a lot that have been for sale for a long time. Sure to s...

Re: Engine Swaps/Repowering For Buses,Coaches and Trucks?

My 10.5 Metre Austral Denning aspire has had the original series 50 Detroit replaced by a 410HP CAT C12.
I imagine the CAT is a lot longer than the 4 cylinder 50 series, and it just fits in there.

I'd say it probably goes a little better too

Firefly ...Austral Denning Aspire Photos wanted

Hi

I have previously posted this in the Tas section, but have now got a bit more history on it.

Does anyone have any pics or info on an Austral Denning aspire Body Number CA00940 that was new to Firefly in 1996, which then went to Tassie at some point?

This is it now

Thanx

Re: whats your favourite bus for a motorhome?

Hey Dirk
No whacky weed for me, it is you that forgot the Denning bit on the Austral Denning.

Now this is a mini Austral and it sure would go nice I reckon.

Hi Denv12 If you don't want to have to worry about dealing with the sunken isle and raising the roof you can buy my Landseer shell already done. It is for sale.

Re: Tag axle internal roof height options.

Hi Cary

If you are keen on dropping the floor. I have heard of it being done fairly easily on both the Denning and Austral Hidecks.

I have heard the Twin turbo 0303 get along pretty well, but don't know about parts etc
