  • Engineer Exam prep books

    Are there any Engineers here that know of any really good books to get to study for the Engineer Exam?

    Thank you for any input.

    My dept. uses IFSTA Aerial Apparatus Operator and Pumping Apparatus Driver/Operator, 1999 for promotion test... I've read/study both for past two years and say they cover everything very well... Now if an opening would ever come up...

      Driver

      I have read most of the posting but not all. I saw that you were looking at electrical issues. We have an 89 Pierce with a Waterous pump. We had some issues one day that sounded very much like what you were going through. We put it in pump gear and did not get the lights. Went to the pump panel and tried to pump. We got a little pressure but it was not correct. We did some research and found the the pump transfer case was in a situation called a "butt-tooth". The colar that switches from drive to pump does not fully move into place. The way to resolve it is to take the engine out of drive to neutral and then into reverse slowly. Keeping it in pump gear the entire time. Then from that point you go back to neutral and then back to drive. This is directly from the operators manual. This solved our situation.
