Kilgore20 Posted December 3, 2018 Share Posted December 3, 2018 I have a 1956 B model fire engine. This truck has been sitting in my fathers collection for roughly 15 years and has not ran in 8 to 10 years. I have now tasked myself to getting this truck running due to I can't stand watching her waste away. I am relatively new to this site and ask for guidance in my quest to locate the one part that is keeping me from getting her back on the road. So the story.... About 10 years ago my dad took this truck to a parade and on his way home he stopped to get fuel. This turned out to be a bad idea and he wound up with some muddy fuel from a leaking underground tank. This truck runs a Scania Vabis (DS8 R 03). When the bad fuel was put in her she quite basically on the spot. My dad paid a old Mack mechanic to repair her and he took the injection pump and the external short drive shaft off and sent it to a pump shop. My dad got into it with the pump shop over them charging him 3 times what they initially quoted him so he got mad and told them to kick rocks. After several years (like 6 or so) I received the pump after negotiating with the owner and was not given that external shaft back. I questioned them on this and basically was told to get lost. I have had a friend of a friend who works at this shop look for it and he states he cant find it. The shaft i am talking about is what seems to time it. It has to be about three to four inches long with two bolts that bolt to the injection pump and a keyed shaft on the engine side. So my questions are. 1. What is the technical name for this part? ( I feel like I have looked for this part under every conceivable name and can not find it.) 2. Does anyone know where I can locate one for a reasonable price? 3. Or does anyone have one for sale or know of someone who does? 4. And finally if not does anyone know of a parts book with info or dimensions to make one or a suitable substitute forit.
