Old Betsy Fire Offline OP
My 1930 fire truck developed a knock on the way to the last parade, I will be pulling the pan soon, looks like it is number five cylinder. Any tips would be appreciated. Engine swap time?

Don provides some good advice. Why, we’ll the DITY Forum is not frequently visited by the majority of our membership. The more specific forums are where the experts hang out. Post up some photos when you get a chance.

Support those brave men/women who stand the "Thin Blue Line" and lock up those on the wrong side of that line.
