Donâ€™t know if New Zealand spec would be the same as UK. Just to complicate matters still further, it seems the engine found marine applications too. Iâ€™d expect those to be even less powerful
A rather nicely painted TL that isn't a horsebox:

Edit: That TL is rather nice, isn't it? I wonder if it's running a 220 or a 330?

I think it has more to do with the gross weight - 7.5-tonners (and below - I think the TL went down to 5.6 tonne) generally have 6-stud 17.5" wheels, and the heavier versions will have 8-stud 19.5" wheels. If it's a 7.5-tonner on 8-studs then it's been downrated from a higher gross weight. I think though that it's safe to assume that anything with 8-stud wheels is going to have a 6-pot engine - I don't think even Bedford would have dared to fit a ten tonne truck with a 220 engine.
I notice some Bedfords have 6 stud wheels and others 8 studs, does this hint at some difference in mechanical spec, for example the difference between 4-pot and 6-pot donks?
