  1. If your looking at the Fords I'd look at the 7.3 gas. 6.2 isn't a bad motor but the extra power for about $1800 would be nice.
  2. The guy passed away and I'm not sure where they ended up, I know they're not around here anymore.
  3. East Hill Bison in Townshend used to be in restaurants, supposed to be a pretty lean meat. He had a pretty extensive and hot fence to keep them in.
  4. That may be true because most of them are turned down. I think lack of maintenance killed a lot of them in trucks. I always thought that vintage International had more wiring issues than I'd like.
  5. The Maxxforce name was applied to all their engines I belive, in a bus I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Maxxforce 7. Which is International's name for the 6.4L

  7. Probably not, I'm just familiar with our fire radios. I have a CM300 in my pickup with a fender mount and a CM300d with a permanent mount on the roof in my utility truck. I don't notice any difference in reception between the 2.
  8. I'm by no means a expert. It appears that both radios have the same wattage output, so I'd assume it may be the difference in antennas. I know that the more metal mass under the antenna the better and that they clip the antenna to length depending on the frequency range.
  9. Personally if the tanks are good I'd put a new core in the original one, the aftermarket ones usually aren't as good.
  10. I believe there are 2 different fan clutches available for the 6.0, look for the one that came with the plow package.
  11. The Home Depot one definitely looks a lot like the Gear Wrench sets. Napa was having a sale on the 114 piece Gear Wrench set for about $200, I bought one recently. Seems good so far.
  12. The other one looks like a 165 maybe.
  13. Should be similar to this pump, you'll probably find the return check valve plugged with rubber bits. You can knock the ball out of the check valve to get it moving but ultimately the pump needs repair.
  14. I believe that emergency vehicles can be programmed not to derate if it has an emissions issue so that you won't be stuck in a bad situation. All the bells and lights will still go off but the truck will still function. You'll still have to fix it, but not in the middle of a fire scene. Run them hard and don't leave them idling a lot and they don't seem to have a lot of issues.
