i have an ancient lucas brake workshop manual in the shed ,i should be able to remember as i have done enough of them in my time but now iam religated to here and a few ac regasses or taking vehicles for test ,still have some rear hub oil seals in the shed somewhere because i never throw nothing away ,right just had a look in the shed and i dont have section 9-12 of the manual i can only think i left it the UK ,now as i remember all seals point to the front except the middle piston as this has two seals the front one facing foreward and the back one facing backwards ,if it a tandem cylinder that is as the earlier ones were not a tandem but the later ones with air /hydraulic were now their was a model as i remember where it had a master cylinder in the cab which operated the unit behind the cab which worked the brakes ,Setting up the handbrake was a work of art on these motors as the levers all had to be at the right angle and the back brake wheel cylinders had a wedge shape inside them that put the handbrake on ,also their was a transmission brake on some of the models as well unless iam getting confused with the TK TM ,Anyway i do know its quicker to drop engine out of the bottom than take the cab off ,use a gearbox trolly type jack with a hole cut in it for the sump plug and push engin backwards on this then lift whole front of truck up with another skip lorry and then pull the engine out on this trolly with a land rover

SOURCE: I have a 1year old mitsubishi canter 3C13 tipper which has a bent axle and damaged differential, is this a manufacturing problem as we have had toyota tippers for 10years and never had problems
I think one of the drivers has had a tipple too many and hit something hard and kept quite ,being a old hand on fleet vehicles from skip lorries to catapilar dozers i have seen many things including bent axles and this is common on trucks that visit offroad sites and get stuck then pulled out with a dozer and a chain around the axle instead of the two spring hanger brackets .twisted 8 wheeler chassis ,bumpers pulled off and tippers on their side where the back doors havent been tied back or just sunk without trace in wet conditions over the tip ,
