Cool Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Here's an old Squarebody GMC 6500 still putting in a hard days work serving her community as Fairmont, Nebraska's main pumper sure we have a crew cab Kenworth that's at least 7 years old but they take the ol' GMC to field fires, house fires, you name it before they'll break out the Kenny because the GMC is lighter and older than the Kenworth and she's got 2 engines both gas but from what one of my Buddies who used to be on the department said that the Smeal pump is F**d powered but I'm unable to confirm or deny it at this time if I can get any more shot of her I'll post them up here

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

My Department in Valley NE had a Smeal pumper/tanker with a separate pump engine, and it was a Ford gas V-8. The nice thing about that truck was it had pump and roll capabilities, it was great for weed fires in road ditches, you could drive along and hit fire with the dual deck guns and never have to walk in the black!
Unfortunately the powers that be deemed it too old to keep around, so we sold it to Verdigree NE. FD and it is still in service.

Nice to see she's still a hard worker. That's what that high ratio of service vs use is supposed to be all about. Powers that be are often just that and that's about all. Probably more about the town's image than anything.

That fire apparatus company has it's pumper package set up to use the Ford industrial engine I suppose. The same unit goes on whatever brand truck.

You are learning well, but always more I could teach you. There is nothing bigger than Chevy 90 or GMC 9500. What I meant was you didn't include the bigger series in your title. There were no C90s

Looks great! That's be a nice looking conversion. The best I've seen. Not an awkward part about it, like most I see. Looks meant to be.
