No mention in the article about the Mack CF Aerialscope from Auckland. It does mention 20% paid career and 80% non-paid vollies.

Mack L and B Models-Engine (motor) question:

In 1956, the U.S. Navy awarded a contract to Mack for 33 B-Series fire pumpers. It was the first time since 1942 that the Navy sought a Mack vehicle fleet. Ultimately, Mack supplied 900 B-Series fire trucks to cities, counties, and state and federal government fire agencies from 1954 to 1966. The Navy's Mack B475CF versions featured a 204-horsepower Chrysler V-8 Hemi engine and a five-speed manual transmission. The Mack were the first Navy pumper to have an enclosed cab.

It was equipped with a Hale two-stage pump that could generate 750 gallons per minute from a 300-gallon water tank. Its wheelbase was 168.5 inches, with an overall body length of 23.5 inches.

Mack Trucks is a subsidiary of AB Volvo which purchased Mack along with Renault Trucks in 2000.

After being founded in Brooklyn, New York, the company's headquarters were in Allentown, Pennsylvania, from 1905 to 2009, when they moved to Greensboro, North Carolina. The entire line of Mack products is still produced in Lower Macungie, Pennsylvania, with additional assembly plants in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Australia, and Venezuela.


What [b]Gasoline[/b] Engines did these rigs have...Mack or from another manufacturer ?

In this short video, you can see that the L-Model had a GASOLINE engine...

Mack "L" and "B" series fire trucks mostly used a Mack built "707A" or "707B" gasoline motor. A few larger "L" and "B" series used a Hall-Scott
gasoline motor to run a more powerful 1,500 to 2,000 GPM pump on the "L-125F" and "B-125F" models. Hall-Scotts were mostly used on the west coast
and Minneapolis. The hoods on the Macks with Hall-Scott motors had to be lengthened to accept the engine. This feature makes them very distinctive
from regular models. The Navy "B" models did use a specified Chrysler Hemi gas motor, probably because that motor was used in other Navy vehicles
and it made maintenance easier for Navy mechanics. In 1960 Mack delivered the first Mack built diesel engine fire trucks to Hamilton, Bermuda. There
were two pumpers and a hose truck.

This book breaks down engine use in each model, non-Mack motor usage was a small percentage of each model's total output.
I.e., L model output was 1,453 units, of which only 80 had non-Mack motors. 60 units out of the B model run of 908 had non-Mack motors.

Thanks for the help, however...I found this:

"from another website"...........

1- "Looking at buying a Mack-B model Fire Engine.... it has the 'Hall Scott' engine. My question is are parts for this engine hard to come by".....

2- "I've got a '48 Mack L type 21 with a Hall Scott,been looking 3 years for a carb for it to no avail."
