Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

MIANY Dennis F.2 fire-engine chassis have IVI already been delivered to overseas customers, but the accompanying illustration shows the first complete vehicle, which is designed to fight fires in the Hong Kong area.

The chassis and body have been built and tested in the Guildford works of Dennis Bros., Ltd., the integral assembly of the chassis and pumping gear enabling the unit to be freely tested before the body was fitted. As illustrated, the pumping gear is housed amidships, although some of the other machines delivered have had the pump unit mounted at the rear. Full control is provided at the pump for regulating engine speed and the flow of water.

The appliance has a Rolls-Royce " straight-eight" petrol engine and the cooling system operates in a closed circuit. When the pump is in action, the engine is cooled through a heat-exchanger unit interconnected with the main. pump.

The F.2 has a high performance, 60 m.p.h. being reached from rest in 45 secs. The engine ignition governor limits the maximum speed to 67 m.p.h. A complete chassis, with sectioned body, will be exhibited on the Dennis stand at Earls Court.
