someone made me an offer on my 'k' series Bedford truck that was too good to refuse, so it went off to a new home. An older guy that lives local who absolutely loves it. So I started looking for something else, this new 'TK' wasn't actually advertised for sale, I saw it in the background of a truck that was for sale, asked some questions and a few weeks later it was in my hands.
It's a 1969 Bedford TK, built by Holden. Very similar driveline to the 'K' series, having the 214 Bedford 6 cylinder and 4 speed. Currently having the radiator reconditioned, installing a new water pump, making a HEI dizzy and a general tidy up and she will be ready for the road once again.
It appears to have an issue with the eccentric that drives the fuel pump, resulting in the fuel pump not working, which given the good condition of the truck is probably what ended its use quite a few years ago. An electric fuel pump has solved that problem for now.
