    215 and 281 are the new style. We have an engine like them and it is a good concept, although built out of aluminum with a little more attention to detail would be real nice too. As well as less than 800 gallons of water and we got doors instead of roll-ups.

    Those old Fords are real peaches, they have a 5+2 manual transmission, does anyone remember how to operate those any more?

      Are you referring to what I call a split axle - where every gear has a high and low? Our old tanker that we got rid of 2 years ago (finally) had a 5 speed with every gear split between a high and low. It was a lot of fun to drive and pretty funny watching new guys try to get the hang of too.
