  1. There are some very good I-H truck and Scout/Scout II forums online! So, why would you want to join this one? Well, for one thing, here's an opportunity to start a forum from the ground up, to build the kind of dialogue you like, and to know that there's oversight with credible, well-researched facts! I have been a staunch I-H truck guy from early-on, having grown up in ranching country with an I-H dealership at its hub. I know I-H trucks and the Scout from its earliest, slant-four models. I even know the quirks and foibles of that earlier technology! As a footnote, many mature I-H folks know me for the OFF-ROAD Magazine 'Holy Moses!' tech columns in the '80s and '90s, when I fielded endless questions on 4x4s and always included International-Harvester trucks. My comments once drew the attention of Gale Banks—he puzzled over my staunch support for a 1956 I-H S120 4x4...I had seen these trucks at work in the 'sixties. My respect for I-H pickups, the Travelall and the Scout II remain high to this day. I'd like to hear your experiences and share mine, compare your 'Line Ticket' to others' equipment, even discuss modifications and upgrades—alongside the pure restoration tips and mechanical 'how-to' that many owners seek. In my view, International-Harvester built some of the best light trucks ever, with in-house and outsourced components that were unrivaled. These one-off, virtually hand-built light trucks often have no match. If you join this forum, I've got a wall of bookcases with resource materials on repairs, restoration and technical data for I-H trucks and Scout models...Interested? I'm ready to talk and share!

  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  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. For anyone looking for info on the I-H Scout, Scout II, and Travelall, a good source of info, according to a couple family members, is Super Scout. According to their website, http://www.superscoutspecialists.com/store/default.aspx, they are specialists in all of the I-H vehicles, and according to a couple family members, they are extremely knowledgable and helpful. Another site, that may or may not be able to get body parts, is http://www.lkqcorp.com/us/en/auto-light-truck-parts/aftermarket-parts-by-keystone.aspx. They are LKQ corporation, owners of Keystone aftermarket body parts. I have never gotten body parts for an I-H, but i have gotten parts for older domestic trucks and vans from them, and pricing actually seems pretty reasonable. As far as i know, though, you can only do phone orders, as well as in store orders and pick up if they have a store near you.
  7. 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
