  1. 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.
  2. 2 different variations with all the part numbers.
  3. I have to go do some counting, I've got a perfectly good 500c sitting in the shed because I've been unable to find bottom rolls.
  4. I'm not saying it's the right way.... but if it's a small hole fill the tank, rub a bar of soap in to the hole / crack to stop the leak temporarily then weld a patch over it.
  5. If I can't get seals I usually pull them out and send the seals to the hydraulic shop and have them match them up, way cheaper too if your not in a hurry.
  6. Air filter # crosses to a Napa 2669
  7. I have one that looks like that, seems to work good. Sometimes hard to get the reflective tape to stick to the crank pulley.
  8. I'd recommend one of the hydraulic cable crimpers. I've had one of the off brand for 10 years and never had an issue and it fits in tighter places than the long handled ones.
  9. I use the 9.0 in my 1/2" gun, a little heavy but definitely more power. I use 5.0 in most everything else.
  10. I've had more service calls for no starts after they've changed fuel filters like that, they always put the o-ring in that groove and block off the fuel flow. It does fit nicely in there and is easy to assume that's where it goes. One between the filter and the base and the other in the groove in the filter head.
  11. Or consider 5w-40 synthetic if you want better cold weather starting.
  12. I usually do it once a year, but I probably drive on some of the most salt / chloride covered roads. It sprays on pretty easy and doesn't drip, it also creeps during the warm weather. It's come up about 3" on the inside of my bed through the seams.

    cold cut saws?

    Yes, dewalt makes a 14" cold cut chop saw.
  14. I've had similar results with the fluid film. I know a town that was using the NH stuff, it seems to stick a little better. I've been experimenting with Corrosion Free, it's odor free and a little bit heavier than the fluid film. I'm still not sure it's better than the oil undercoating, guess time will tell.
  15. The one on my Super C is a C-21-M, manual says 5, 6 and 7 foot available.
  16. If it's an earlier M there are freeze plugs behind the front and rear covers. My 43' had one rust out and leak into the pan. I pulled the pan and pressure tested it, it took a while before it leaked down through.
