Our fire district has a 1904 Nott steam fire engine which is operational, and is kept on public display. We want to recreate a watch desk from the period, including the various paraphernalia to go with the desk. I have the punch register and take up reel, and the card file, and an alarm box. Right now we need a daily log book from a steam fire engine company of the period from 1904 – 1925 or so, to display on the desk. Another wish (which I know will be hard to fulfill) is a Gamewell or similar wood case gong. This can be in any condition; I can repair nearly anything, but we are seeking this as a donation since we can’t spend taxpayer funding on these things. Also could use a “tapper” bell for the desk. If anyone is willing to help, if you will contact me I will provide contact information for the battalion chief in charge of this equipment. I believe any donation would be tax deductible. We would appreciate any help in recreating the atmosphere of a firehouse in the steam era.

I have a 1926 Seagraves Suburbanite Model 6B: My truck has the smaller six cylinder Continental “Red Seal” industrial type motor.
I desperately need the following item: … (1) Clutch Cage or Basket … This is the cylindrical metal piece that bolts directly to the rear of the flywheel. It is hollow and open to the rear. It is internally horizontally slotted all the way around the internal surface. The Brown-Lipe Model 30 Transmission has centrifugal clutches that fly out from the front shaft pack and engage in the internal slots inside the Clutch cage, thereby completing the drive line.
I would also like to acquire the following items:
(2) I need the 12” long “S shaped” Bronze metal 4” internal diameter metal piece that bolts to the front of the fire pumps plumbing and which protrudes out from under the front right bumper area.
(3) I need an original 60-65 gallon foam tank for the mid 20s Suburbanites.
(4) Delco 5208 Distributor assembly which came on the Continental 6B motor

Our fire district recently received the donation of one of our original engines, a 1935 W.S. Darley on a 1935 Chevrolet chassis originally in service in Beaverton, Oregon. The pump gauges, which were flange mounted to the left side of the hose body above the pump ports, are missing. The original spotlight is also missing. Any help in locating replacements for these items would be greatly appreciated. We would also be interested in any other parts, accessories, literature or documentation on Darley fire apparatus from this period.
