The Ontario, California Fire Department purchased this Crown pumper in 1975 and first assigned it as Engine 5.  Carrying Crown Coach serial number F1743, she is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 engine with an Allison Automatic transmission and fitted with a 1,500gpm Waterous pump with 500 gallon tank.  About mid-way through its career, Ontario modified F1743 by enlarging the jump seat area to the full width of the apparatus.  Anyone that has ridden in the standard jump seats will appreciate the extra 8 inched of elbow room gained by this modification.
