I guess its a simple swap of Passenger door to the driver's door, and vise versa... :)

Only issue with our stuff I thought is that the dash is in the way more or less, unless you trim it.

.. right ''O'' ,.. yes , by a quick measurement , it appears the door handle is dead ''nutz'' of the dash ,... correct. so , how about relocating the box , to either,... up or down ,. of the dash . arm length dictates,...lol. I know for me , reaching behind , towards the rear of cab , to operate door handle was ,.. p.i.a. ..

I just about could chop that dash up and remove it for all I care... make a new one that will include the defrost channels :)

well that's an option, hadn't thought about that. also could cut out ''notches'' , or bevel dash ends,.. for access /clearance ...for door handles ...and more importantly...your hands...

Couple pics. The firewall in the engine compartment, and the dash as it's ended short to allow for the door handles. Also when BFT asked if my engine had the governor/rev limiter, I said no since it's not under the carb. and I assumed the red box that was an aftermarket add on was an electronic ignition, but I see it's an electronic governor.

nice package grouping on the firewall... thx . yes, your ICU is on the lower left side. the EGC does look like the ICU. everything is nicely accessible; ballast resistor , V/R, relays, etc. does the primary power relay (C/B) , on the left side of cab still function. it has only one cable attached to it. so I wonder what year they swapped the hyd. tank to the drivers side?? is the hyd. pump still mounted on the R/S of engine , or did they swap that over to the L/S also. having 5 extra inches of cab width , on each side is a huge asset . I would guess that the width of your dash is the same as the older models , we have ,... the larger windows in your doors are a nice feature also.... I can barely stick my elbow out the window to stretch....

Yes, belt driven hydraulic pump on drivers side as well. Alt, fuel pump, and radiator hose on passenger side. Perhaps changes in engine/waterpump necessitated moving the hydraulic pump?

This machine was speced from the factory with dual batteries. The isolator can handle 3, two in use and one cable goes to that relay on the drivers side. You can see where BC Tel (Telus) had some of their, I'm guessing, job related equipment mounted in the cat. Perhaps they had some onboard equipment wired to that relay that they only wanted powered with the engine running, or perhaps another battery in that equipment? Anyway I'll leave it installed since it was part of that factory installed option. One can imagine the factory options on this cat being well suited the a telephone company operation. Suppose by 1989 they had a pretty good idea what they needed, since it seems they have had a long relationship with Tucker by then. The pic below is from the Tucker FB page.

You called it right on the dash, 48". Just extend the cab 5" on either side of your cab and your set

ah yes,... that explains all the extras. that's a nice bonus, that usually also means a well maintained . fleet machine. great pics. I guess they were just breaking ''stride'' , swapping right to left , components under the hood . the fuel lift pump is much more accessible , with the hyd. pump on the left. yes, i'm going to go alittle wider than 5'' on the cab width, still in the works. I've seen a few models with smaller glass in the lower front , of a wider cab .
