Um, where is the water-tank... or, is it one of those "Removable Tanks", which is off, in this picture?

Pat,

I can only assume that the water tank is down low on the chassis of this ACCO!

Pat,

The unit was used for small grass fires around the airfields and the watertank is low on the chassis

Thanks, Frank and Joe - the water-tank must be really fitted, around the chassis members, the drive-shaft (prop shaft), rear axle and differential !
