Mack CF powerplant options question

Recommended Posts

I've been looking around for information on the Mack CF, and one question I've had on my mind is this: was the Mack CF ever available with any powerplants other than Mack powerplants from the factory?

The vast majority were equipped with Mack 6 pot motors.  Lots of 237's with 5 speeds early on, then eventually up to 350's eventually.  The CF700 had maxidyne V-8's but not many were made comparatively and that combination was unloved in the fire service.  I have seen some CF's repowered with non Mack motors but to my knowledge none left the factory that way.  Conversely, the over the road F model which the CF is developed from could be had with Mack 6 and 8 cylinder power as well as Cat's, Cummins and Detroit power.
