Re: Buying Renault 420 DCI tractor

constant airlock and hard start for premium dci 420
What country are you in? There are very few Renault tractor units around, here at least.
Won't the unit have a plate with the GVW's on it?
I've never heard of tractor units being unsuitable for tipping trailers, provided of course you have a pto/pump/tank, or alternatively your trailer has a donkey engine.
I have never heard of anyone changing air suspension to steel springs or vice versa, although I am not a truck driver.
Sorry for not being much help, although there are probably HGV forums you could ask on
