Cab Lifts

The hydraulic cab lifts used on big trucks are self contained, simple, and an inexpensive way to solve the problem. you could find a heavy truck salvage yard and study the system up close. the whole sysem consists of 2 cylinders, a pump(Manual. air operated, or combination thereof), hydraulic lines & fittings, and mounting hardware. In the late 60's- early 70's Ford produced a "w" series truck that would be very easy to adapt, as the cab and framr are very similar to your "C" cab. Thanks. Scrapiron

Nice Truck

Hey your fire engine looks almost identical to mine. Where did you find parts for yours? I want to replace a few parts on the motor that I replace in all my vehicles when I buy them unless they just replaced them before I buy it. I do not know how to post a picture but will as soon as I can. Please post or send me any information about as yours that will help me. Thanks.
Zak.

534 engine parts

I have some luck with my Napa dealer. He no longer rolls his eyes when I ask for 534 parts. Try parts houses that do not deal in speed stuff and you may be surprised what you find.

As much as I wish I did not have to run the Holley 750 double pumper carb, that is all that will make the beast snort up the hills laden with 1000 gallons of water.

Now if someone has a nice light bar or siren they want to part with, let me know!

C900

I have had a 1973 534 Ford C900 firetruck for a few years. It also is in great shape and usually runs well. It needs a left exhaust manifold and I am having a hard time locating one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. You mentioned your local Napa dealer?
Thanks again,
Dave dtime@magma.ca

Lucky break for you...talk about a great deal....In my city the public transit corp. is still running a Ford C with a flatbed....I'm not sure what it is, but I would guess a C600 to C700. Pristine condition...very little miles I'm sure and looks like it is washed daily and I'm sure maintained well. Our transit corp is extremely good at maintaining their vehicles.

I got up close to this Ford C. It's a C 600, with a 370 V8 and I could hear the thing shift. ....automatic transmission..I would think an Allison ?

I had the same problem finding brake shoes and will just get the shoes relined at Franklin's truck center unless someone knows where to get 16x 2 1/2" airbrake shoes.
