  1. pepcak do you know what model of carb we are looking for?
  2. mode # CF42 CHASSIS # 3481 REGISTERED # C297 AND IT IS A PUMPER
  3. here are some pictures im new at this so may take me couple tries
  4. it has a up carb on it, i am guessing that came off the orginal engine and just happen to work on the buick engine,it also looks like the engine bolted right in could not see any modification to the body, we had some old mechanic from town that did alot of things like that unfortunately they have all past on. i will post the body tags later today.
  5. our volunteer fire department has its first fire truck but we have a problem.the intake and exhaust manifold have several crack in them,the carb is wore out and has crack in it and our fuel pump leaks bad.i dont think this is orginal engine because it has a buick in it. the tag on the engine says BUICK model #29m engine #29mr16704 date 9/25/40. my questions are did this engine come with a updraft carb and manifold or is this something they used from the orginal engine? we need to find parts but we dont know were to start looking any help would greatly be appreciated.
