It's the 75th anniversary of D Day, June 6, 1944. Thanks to all for their courage so that we can remain free.

On the 75th Anniversary, may I take a moment to remember those who gave all so we could remain a free nation. In with the WLF group for the truck.

Ward LaFrance it is. This is a 1943 WLF 1000 Series 4 M1 wrecker, the last model built before the more militarized open cab Series 5 M1A1. The Series 4 was also the only M1 or M1A1 wrecker to have a curved boom. The WLF M1's were built from 1941 to 1943 and all used the civilian Brockway cab. Davwingman had this first. Our WAI photo was posted to Facebook by Andre Margage. The last photo of the WLF Series 4 was posted to Facebook by David Moore, who is also the owner.

Some of those Sherman tanks used raidal aircraft engines, and some had giant Ford V8s, correct?  Are the mechanics working on a radial engine?

You are correct Bruce, that is a radial engine in the photos. There were dozens of variants of the M4 Sherman tanks and several different engines were used. The 400 hp 9 cylinder Wright R975, built under license by Continental as the R975-C1 was one of the first engines used. The Ford V8 was the 1100 ci 500 hp GAA. Twin Detroit 6-71 diesels were used in the M4A2. Perhaps the most unusual was the Chrysler multibank engine, which joined 5 Chrysler flathead 6 cylinder engines together in a common crankcase. This 30 cylinder engine weighed 5375 lbs and developed 425 hp from 1253 ci.

The multicrank is quite an impressive engine, spark plug changes must have been a nightmare! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_A57_multibank
