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?

Welcome to the Garage Betsy!
Post up your question in the engine forums with more info.
Mainly what engine and a description of the knock.
The experts there will help you out!

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.
