There was one of these in a short nosed tractor for the Evanston, Wyoming ladder truck that I found in a junkyard 4 years ago. Low mileage, like a lot of fire equipment, but it had been sitting outside for a while, and looked like it. They got it running, and sold it to someone for 5k. The engine was more or less mid-mounted in that one. Cool project, Doctor, thanks for sharing.
