Once again our Engine is out of service. We had a hard time finding a company willing to work on it. The company fixing it is having a hard time finding the parts to fix it. Just wondering if anyone else out there is having a hard time finding someone to wrench on the ALF truck?

What is it out of service for?
A fire truck is the sum of all its parts.
Whatever part or parts are causing trhe problem, there is a specialist whp shoiuld be able to troubleshoot and repair them."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

LOL...I had to google to find out what an A.L.F. vehicle was. I must be retired too long. I'd try the manufacturer to see if they have the parts. How old is the vehicle??Respectfully,

This truck has been a lemon since day 1, it's been a nightmare for this dept. and they can't even rely on it, to even go on a call. The last authorized people that was able to work on it, was about 300 miles away.
