Just finished refurbishing this old Gem for the Firefighters Museum in Montgomery NY. Was told it hadn't run for over thirty years. Runs and looks good now. A couple of pics of startup day rolling it out of my barn. A couple more after third test drive and final cleanup. Drove it in there town parade two Saturdays ago. This Saturday it will be driven in the Orange County fireman parade in Greenwood Lake NY. With that being said I will now try and post the pics again. If anyone has any parts or leads for these old trucks please let me know. Thanks. If anyone knows how to correct the first two photo's to avoid sore necks. Please do. Thanks Enjoy

Pete

Pump is next. I myself would like to remove pump and submerge in water to lubricate what I believe are leather seals. Reinstall and pump some water. There is a high and low pump rate. Would be interesting to see it operate.

A real Torque monster. To bad second gear sounds like 10 monkeys banging beer cans together when trying to execute second gear shift. First and Third is fine. Reverse is great. All we need. Very fast in third.
