Found this one today, apparently it’s been with the same owners since it was a year old.

Here's some more pics of the 143.

I don't think being a stretched unit is bad if it's done right, this one is very nicely done.

It pulls like a train and once warm the box is lovely. The torque is phenomenal!!

It's going into the boys who look after my Volvo next week, few little jobs to do. They have a restored 113 unit so know the score.

That Scania really is a thing of beauty.

 

The gearbox would worry me slightly though - I'd be bricking it on the change from 3rd to 4th in case I overshot and accidentally banged it into the crawler gear.  Or is that locked out in high range?

There's quite a strong detent spring you would be doing well to catch it.
