  1. So as a kid (17-23) my family owned a garden center/landscape company. One of our farm trucks was a 1973 international 1210 4-door 4WD pick up. We changed out the automatic transmission with a 5 speed out of a scout I believe. We installed a dually kit on the rear and added a stake body. Over the years I grew very attached to it and was devastated when my father told me that he had sold it. Well surprise! Dad bought it back 10 years later as a gift for me to restore. I have more memories tied up in that truck than are probably healthy. I am looking forward to that truck being my first restoration project but I have limited experience. I was hoping that this may be a good resource. Is this forum still fairly active?
  2. hey all, just got a 1972 international 1210 345 v8 2wd all drum pickup. It has manual brakes, and I was going to put a booster on it....just found out that there's a bracket that goes between the firewall and the booster.....if I find that bracket is it a direct fit? Thanx for the help! PS do you always have to look at the pics of the rigs and scroll down to the topic?
  3. Hello, Moses! I've got some questions for ya, i just bought a 1973 ih 1210 pickup. like you i was brought up around international harvester trucks scouts travelall etc. my step-dad worked as a mechanic at Grinnell implement in Grinnell Iowa. anyway my plans are to lift the 1210 but i cant seem to find any kits for that i would like to run 35 or 38 inch tires also it is real hard to find body parts for these old binders i'm looking for cab corners, rocker panels and maybe some floor panels. my binder "ol red" has a dana 44 in the front a Dana 60 in the rear a 205 t case but I'm having trouble finding out what engine and tranny it has in it i was told by the kid that i bought it from that it was a 392 the tranny is a 4 speed with what i call a great granny gear any help identifying these items would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi, everyone! I have just recently discovered this site while searching for service manuals for a 1973 international 1210 4x4 I purchased a couple of years ago. I bought the truck for $540.00. It was used as a plow truck up in northwestern Ontario where I live. The truck is in very rough condition, hence the price. The truck does run like a top, minus the brakes. I have recently had some issues start arising and would like to find service manual infomation on this awesome old truck. I never thought when i bought it I would fall so hard for a truck in such rough shape. This truck will out perform my 1996 f250 in deep snow and blow my 2009 f150 away by miles when it comes to running in deep snow. Shame, shame on the new Fords!!!! I love the simplicity of all the working of this truck and how little it needs to maintain its functionality. If anyone can help with finding the manuals I need it would be great as I have looked high and low but it`s a hard item to find. While out plowing the other morning (-35c) I heard a creaking from the front end but figured maybe the plow bracket was cracked or loose, turns out seconds later I lost the front axle drive capabilities. First I thought it might be the clutch pooched out but I was able to drive with rear wheels so that ruled out the clutch. As I was looking underneath I noticed what looked like black rust or filings, possibly by the front u-joint near the front passenger tire and then got to thinking maybe the locking mechanism or hub pooched. Hopefully its nothing to do with the transfer case but as of yet no one has come out to the house to be my assistant to help with diagnosing the issue. Hard to drive and look underneath to see what is going on by yourself, lol Soon enough though. Can parts still be purchased easily for this great old truck? I hope in the future I can find one in great condition as I would love to restore one and use it as my daily drive truck. But for now finding a service manual or info would be very helpful as winter is far from over and living remotely out on a lake and having an ice road, this old truck is a must have! Thank you for any info and help you may be able to provide!
  5. I have two International Loadstar 1600s (1969 & 1978). Both ran when they were parked where they are now but have not been started in 5 years. The 69 is a real cool firetruck with 30,000 miles. I’d really like to get those 2 back up and running. I work in heavily wooded mountains and would like to have the fire truck for burning my huge piles of brush. That water pump is mighty strong!!! Not to mention, I love the snub-nose “look” of those old trucks. The last time I drove one was the '78, and it SCARED the HELL out of me. I was climbing the mountain with a full tank of water & it stalled and lost power brakes. That is why they have been sitting. Should I drain and replace gas, radiator, oil? Then rebuild carbs and try to start? Then work from that point? And is there an Injector system available for these engines?
  6. My first exposure to I-H trucks was at Carson Valley, Nevada in the early 'sixties. The slant four-cylinder 152 (later the 196) models were all over Carson Valley, an adjunct to the popular I-H light 4x4 trucks and cultivating equipment. Ranchers valued the reliability and ease of service on these light-duty trucks and other I-H equipment. The local I-H dealer did a brisk business... By the late 'sixties, as a truck fleet mechanic, I had charge of several I-H trucks and did minor and major repairs and maintenance on them, including a vintage dump truck with an RD406 gas inline engine and several IHC Metro Vans of early 'sixties vintage—each equipped with a BD240 inline OHV six and B-W 3-speed automatic transmission. I rebuilt components and discovered quality powertrains, axles and chassis up close. Subtle advancements and utility features like chamfered cylinder bores impressed me...I acquired firsthand respect for "Cornbinder" stamina and IHC's hallmark ability to out-source the best components and parts in the automotive industry. In 1969, a parts run to the local I-H truck dealership, Alessio Motors at San Diego, nearly resulted in the purchase of an "immaculate" 1956 I-H R120 3/4-ton short box 4x4 pickup parked on the used truck lot! The iron transfer case shift levers remain fixed in my memory! What a find, and what a legacy if I had purchased the R120...At the time, I was busy with the restoration of a Jeep CJ-3A and could not make room for the I-H truck... The original I-H Scout evolved from a staid knock-off of a vintage Jeep CJ-5/CJ-6 into the 196 slant four and 266 V-8 option models. Finally, facing competition from the Ford Bronco, G.M. Blazer and Jimmy, the Scout II emerged with a 258 AMC inline six and optional 345 V-8. By then, the bulletproof Chrysler A727 transmission option or a rugged manual gearbox filled the "Line Ticket"! Beyond doubt, the 266, 304, 345 and 392 V-8s were among the most rugged domestic gasoline engines ever built. Based on the light truck chassis, Travelall wagons were well ahead of their time. In 1975, I went to Alaska with Bob "Bearclaws" Stutsman in a used '66 I-H 4x4 Travelall with well over 100K miles on the odometer. We pulled a travel trailer from Carson City, Nevada to Kenai, Alaska. The rugged, 304 V-8 powered truck performed flawlessly, using less than one quart of oil on the trip...As for "rugged", an early '70s Travelall could be optioned with a 5-speed Clark medium-duty manual transmission! All Scout II, I-H light trucks and Travelalls were built to the highest standards and from a remarkable list of available options. The last 4x4 I-H light trucks were among the best-built American trucks and utility models in history. Restorers and loyal owners appreciate these models to this day. This forum is about building community. Enthusiastic and informed I-H, Scout and Scout II owners and restorers can share unique experiences, restoration projects, technical questions and parts needs with other I-H buffs...My interest is ongoing, as is my praise for International-Harvester trucks!—Moses Ludel
