joes mack Posted July 15, 2012 Share Posted July 15, 2012 i need help bad the pump shift wont engage on the mack we have tried it with the electric and the manual override but it still wont engage either way. this all started after one of our know it all firefighters got in the truck and tried to engage the pump without puting it in N and i plainly told him not to do it. well just so hapens we were at a fire and were moping up the scene and he goes and gets in the truck with it still in pump gear and flips the switch to disengage the pump. after i fignaly got to the truck and put it in N and got it to stop grinding he looks at me and says thats the way we did it at the last dept i was at. i lost it and told him this is not the last dept he was at and that he was not suposed to be fooling with the truck any way since he didnt listen the last time he did it that i better not catch him even touching the truck. but the dammage has allredy been done. the truck has a waterious pump model YBX does anyone know if the gears are brass or steel. and if they are hard to change and roughly how much they cost. i know that its a vol fire dept and i shouldnt have talked to him the way that i did but this is the nicest truck we have ever had and one of the best pumping trucks in the county. i guess i take pride in the CF and want to keep it around for a while and some people could care less because it dont belong to them. i guess ron white is right you cant fix stupid .
