Unless I'm mistaken, and I often am, Mack never made a B52.  Maybe confusing it with the bomber?

For money, an interesting project...but way too far away for me.

B52's were seen in the air not on the highway!

I know of a least one other B52 - owned by a guy in Meadville, PA. There are build records for that truck in the files in Allentown.

I'm thinking that's just a B61. Looks good though.

Yup, model numbers that end in even numbers are gas, odd number endings are diesel.

Got a shirt with a B-52 on it, it says "PEACE THE OLD FASHIONED WAY" different B-52 though this one makes neat 20' diameter holes in the ground over an area the size of a small town, or just a few really large holes that glow in the dark!

Did fire trucks use a different system?All the B85's seem to be gassers.

From above:

 

"Mack never made a B52 at all.. B53 yes"...

 

See the picture below- somebody better call Mack and tell them that the chinese counterfiters are back at work--

 

There are some records of this truck in the archives in Allentown-  (this post has moved on from what it started from- this information has nothing to do with the truck for sale at the start of the thread)

 

Usually not a good idea to say "never" or "always" when talking about these old trucks- can come back to bite you.

Did fire trucks use a different system?All the B85's seem to be gassers.

 

  Mack fire truck designations usually had to do with the pump size; e.g.  B85s and C85s had 750 GPM pumps, B95s and C95s had 1,000 GPM pumps,

  and B & C 125s had 1,250 GPM pumps. These models were usually gassers but later were available with diesel engines.

 

  "The B-52s" were also a rock group; "Love Shack", etc.

My guess for an engine is an overhead valve en464, but maybe an en348. My father's B422 has a 348.

think the B422's had the 438,. kick myself for not savin a fresh rebuilt one from the scrappers. got the rear end and baby 18 speed quad but the engine went for junk. the B62's had 464's. dont think the 540's came out untill the 60's in the b68's. maybe a 438 or 464

I wonder if that was a B422 with a misstamped VIN tag?With a serial # of 18937,that's a pretty high build for something that until now,most of us have never heard of or seen.It would be interesting to see the frame stamp.
