Nice to know that still someone is thinking about the old Magirus monsters
Back in 2002 I had done my “Cape to Cairo” trip in a Magirus 170 D12, which has a different engine (the powerful V6 *yeah*), but is more or less the same mechanical concept like the 110-16. Here my (rough) experience of ,so far, 55000 Km with this truck:
Main engine parts (cylinders, piston, valves,…) are still in use (as new!) at many construction machines, generators,…, so in case this should not be a problem (these Magirus engines are bullet-proof anyway!). All chassis/drive/break parts are standard or using standardized bearings, seal, etc… you can purchase stuff like this at every car/truck parts dealer, even in Malawi.
Only some parts are left which are very specific, and these are –sad but true- only available at “Magirus/Iveco” and fuc****ing expensive!
You will find a lot of knowledge especially about trucks like these at the Allrad-LKW-Forum (Allrad-LKW-Gemeinschaft :: Index
). This is a board in German language, but feel free to bounce in some English request, for sure somebody will take care about it…
