bought an '86 ford c800 superior fire truck!

hello! just recently (2 days ago !) I bought a firetruck for fire suppression on my acreage. hale pump, 1000 gallon (?) tank. will be looking around the forum a little later today. thanks for letting me join.
truck runs and drives great. did not come with hoses....can get those made up easily enough. 45, 000km on truck, 2800 hours on pump. was taken out of service last fall, fully serviced before parked. all new tires and brakes.
only issue is that it has no park brake- will dig into that, or install a driveline (driveshaft) park-brake set-up.IMG_1851.JPGIMG_1852.JPGIMG_1854.JPGIMG_1855.JPG

A neat looking engine. You might be interested in joining SPAAMFAA. You can visit their website at spaamfaa.org. Good luck with your new acquisition!
 
ordered factory service manuals for the truck, will try to keep it oem. parts for the park-brake system are still readily available.

thanks!
