    Default Truck Bell Needed

    Hello Forum:

    We just purchased a Sutphen pumper. It's original department had a bell mounted on a hanger located just above the radiator.

    The bell had history and stayed with it's department. We are now looking for a replacement bell.

    The replacment bell needs to be chrome, under 10" and capable of hanging from a hanger. In otherwords, a bumper mount is not going to work.

    We appreciate any input on this matter.

    I may consider letting my bell go for the right price. Of course I may not too.

    You could try asking them if the manufacturer is stamped on the bell somewhere, probably could get a new one from them. If they are out of business, it sure would make find a replacement easier.

    What does it look like and what is the right price? My 1974 CLASSIC Mack CF needs a bell. It originally had one but it is long gone.
