    Default New guy in Texas

    I was told to hunt this site up. Glad I did. I have a 1940 Holabird pumper built by the United States Army in Ft. Holabird, Maryland I am working on for the local volunteer fire dept.

    I'm hoping to dig some information out of this site to help me transplant a Hercules multifuel engine (rebuilt by the military) in where a 22R (U6501) Continental gas used to be.

    Gonna be hunting SAE bell housing answers.

    Hoping I can dig around and search around to see if i can do this.

    Thanks, Roy

    Welcome. Some suggestions: avoid using the stock transmission as it is not synchronized (double clutch) and likely has no overdrive. Use the transmission that came with the 5 ton trucks (6453). Or best yet, flip the multifuel and get a complete late model pre emissions diesel with transmission from a late model wrecked civilian truck.

    Which forum might best suit this old military fire truck? Right now it's in pretty poor condition. I want to get it running on its own power so I can move it around to work on it. Thanks again.
