New Owner and memeber

Just acquired a 1942 K5-233 Firetruck. I am very excited to begin this adventure

The truck is in pretty good shape but does not have the original engine. I was told it was a BlueDiamond 240 but have no idea if thats correct and/or what year the engine is

Looking for some help from you experts

My Pictures are too big to post so I will have to figure that out.

The intake manifold on the overhead valve 6 cylinder has a casting stamp of 179253-R1 and of course is cracked.

What engine is this? and any sources for a functional intake or an original GRD233 engine

Two things, on pictures, there are several ways. mine is to use Paint in windows to "resize" them about 40-60 percent then save them in a separate folder. they need to be around 640kib in size. the second is I may have an intake manifold. your engine size should be on a little block on the side of the engine, toward the front I believe . contact at my email
