looking for info on a truck from sommers NY

Recommended Posts

We were donated a truck that was originally from sommers fire dept in weschester county ny. it started as a 1979 Oren and in 1991 was sent to pierce and refurbished with a new cab and body. this truck went to greenville TN area and mcdonald fire dept donated it to us. this is all we know about the truck it has a 8v-92 detroit and a 4 speed allison auto. 1500 g.p.m. waterous pump. i know its not a mack but i figured some of the members on here would know something about this truck. thank you in advance. joe

It should be the old Engine 186.  Its a tandem axle right? somersvfd.com  I remember this rig well.  My department was two towns south.  Website says it was originally a 1000gpm pump not 1500gpm.... Although Pierce may have put a larger  pump on it during the refurb.
