1500/750 top mount engine.
Interested in knowing what was used to turn a 1500 gpm pump. Unfamiliar with anything that would turn larger than a 1250 in a Ford C.

To be honest, I was under the gun with time. The member who posed the rig had told me that it was a 1500. Thank you for that information, I never knew that about Ford C apparatus.

Darley LDM 1500 pump in a C cab Ford with a 3208 cat turbo rated at 250 hp. Darley sold a lot of LDM's for that purpose. E-one started out with Darley pumps before Hale.

A brand new Ford "C"/E-One at Greenwood Motors in Massachusetts. Greenwood is the E-One dealer in New England and also builds its own trucks
under the Maxim name. Oh, by the way, the photo was taken in the mid 1980s.
