The first 8340s were non turbo and presumably would have been on K Reg (did they not have a black stripe on the roof). I would assume there was, embarrassingly, very little between the 83 and the 82 in the early models and a turbo was fitted to liven things up.
That's right pete. The first 82 and 83 were identical except the pump turned down a bit in the 8240. My 82 was J reg
The turbo came on the 83 from Sept '93.
None of the 8240s were turboed when new.
The first blue roof models had Ford on the bonnet and the the NH(Fiat) badge on the nose cone.
Later models had New Holland on the sides of the bonnet and small Ford decals on the sides of the nose and the NH badge on the front.
