Remote Steering Vehicle
This is a further model on the theme of lorries with prefabricated cabs. This one, a remote steering vehicle, uses spur gears, 19-tooth and 57-tooth gears to move the steering mechanism. The idler 19-tooth pinion corrects the rotation of the steering wheel, so the model moves left when turned left and right when turned right.
This model works well with the photographed Spinmaster-type tyres and Meccano tyres. The 1978 three part wheels are presently not suitable.
The steering wheel adds play value, since the Liverpool-made prefabricated cabs do not have access for a workable steering wheel or control. If the builder has available the French Meccano Multikit cabs, these are also suitable.
