I ‘ve been collecting information on USFS and CDF engines for quite some time now. I’ve got some questions on the equipment of the late 40s – early 1960s.
I’ve seen a few photos of the old USFS Green Hornets / Marmon Herringtons which appear to use a Wisconsin V-4 to turn their pumps. Anyone know what pump these used and approximate gpm?
Also does anyone know how the Green Hornets got that nickname? The MH is easy, that is who did the conversions, but I can only assume the GH name came from them being green and the Green Hornet being a popular radio serial at the time.
Prior to developing the Model 1 in the 1950s CDF used a Hercules motor for their pumps. So same question, model of motor, pump and gpm.
Last is the apparently short lived USFS Model 58, I understand this was the same as the Model 56 but using an auxiliary engine driven pump in place of the PTO. Looking for info on the standard motor, pump and gpm used on these.
