Alvis » FV-651 / FV-652 Salamander

In fact, the model Salamander was a streamlined chassis of armored vehicle Saladin (FV-601), which in 1954 turned into the chassis FV-651 with rear mounted Rolls-Royce V81 (6,5 l, 240 hp) engine, 6-seater pressurized cabin, which became the basis for a family of high-speed airport fire crash tenders Salamander. Since 1956, the first series Mk-VI (FV-651A) was produced with the total mass of 13.7 tons, in 1960 it was changed by the model Mk-VIA (FV-652) with 238-horsepower diesel engine, to which were added later variants B, C and D. Vehicles were equipped with the firefighting equipment of Pyrene or General Fire companies, which consisted of tanks for water and foam concentrate, a powerful pump, and one or two fire monitors. 125 Salamanders were built and used in the Royal Air Force (as the Alvis Salamander/Pyrene Mark 6) and the Royal Canadian Air Force. By the way, the company Pyrene Co Ltd was engaged in reconstruction of the old Saladin in the Salamander.

would like info on setting timing on 1925 American LaFrance-12. 6 cylinder in line engine. Has Magneto and distributor. Where should the advance lever be positioned for setting timing? How many degree of timing does the engine require 34, 36, 38 degrees Before Top Dead Center. Should the engine be started with any of the compression valves opened? Need this info for a Christmas parade in Titusville, Fl. Thanks for any help. Richard Burns, fire Chief's father in law.
