I have a project…so I am looking for parts for a 1974 International Harvester 100 series pick up truck.
Should you have one or see one …let me know. Looking for a hood, a grill and a windshield. Maybe more but that is a good starts .
I hear Facebook is a good place to score these things but I am not there.
Thanks!Jun 20, 2019 at 6:56 pm #3598602
These guys kept my ‘76 Scout on the road,Jun 20, 2019 at 7:00 pm #3598603Nick GatelBPL Member

Try eBay. I’ve bought a lot of car, truck, and motorcycle parts there… not to mention tons of postage stamps for my collection.
BTW, if your engine is a gas V-8, the timing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
but unlike almost every gas engine ever made, the timing is not set on #1. It is set to #8. I can’t count the number of failed IH tune-ups I fixed in the ‘70s by re-adjusting the timing to #8.Jun 20, 2019 at 7:03 pm #3598605
Starter spins opposite of most too. I’ll keep a closer look at a couple places I go past. With all the agriculture here there is no shortage of aging IH stock.Jun 20, 2019 at 7:04 pm #3598606
Thanks Ken! I thought they were only about Scouts but I see they’re also about the light line series. I will check them out.
Thanks Nick! Good info on the timing. On eBay I see a hood on the east coast . Will keep looking .Jun 20, 2019 at 7:23 pm #3598610Nick GatelBPL Member

Yeah, a lot to learn about. It is my understanding that many boats with two large engines sitting sit-by-side have engine rotations in opposite directions for various reasons that make sense. I ran into this when I has helping a friend with his boat years ago.Jun 22, 2019 at 12:19 am #3598758
Please do keep me in mind for those parts if you see something in California because shipping from out of state is very expensive: hundreds of dollars.Jul 12, 2019 at 10:30 pm #3601669
This is such a “fun” project ;) Chris is replacing the clutch and I am working on cutting out the rust. The engine ( 392 cu in) is something to behold. 4×4. Internationals are simply the coolest.
I needed something else to do in my “spare time”…Jul 22, 2019 at 6:00 pm #3602983
I was told that there’s a hood for my exact pickup up the hill under some poison oak and blackberry. The only car part up there btw. So I got it out ( and did get a pretty bad case of poison oak) . Seems so unlikely…this is a pretty rare truck and I have been walking by the hood almost every day for a decade now. Yes it has rust but it is not rotten so I will give it a new life :)Jul 22, 2019 at 6:04 pm #3602985
Is it rotted through at all or just surface rust?Jul 22, 2019 at 6:18 pm #3602988
It has one small area in the front that is actually rotten but still in much better shape than the one that is mounted now. I’ll keep looking for a better one but this one won’t fly off and can be patched to last for a while.
My dream to turn my truck into this..Jul 22, 2019 at 6:25 pm #3602993
What kind of axles are on your truck?
Google tells me Dana 44 & 60?Jul 22, 2019 at 6:33 pm #3602995
I don’t know. I found the same info you did on Google but for the 200 ( 1 ton). Mine is a 100, a half ton. I’ll have to get back to you on that. Just got my service manuals and parts manuals the other day.Jul 23, 2019 at 2:18 am #3603053
The pumpkins on Kat’s look like 44’s. The 60 would have been a full floating rear end.Jul 23, 2019 at 2:27 pm #3603096
Looks like they are not stock so I’ll have to get back to you .Jul 23, 2019 at 4:56 pm #3603114
No big deal. Just curious.
44s would make senseJul 24, 2019 at 6:14 pm #3603279W I S N E R !BPL Member
This is going to be a beautiful truck when it’s done. Square and fat, cool lines.Jul 24, 2019 at 6:18 pm #3603281
That is what I see too :)Jul 24, 2019 at 7:23 pm #3603293
Their vehicles have always looked like a juggernaut to me.
My neighbors growing up had a scout. If you needed a machine to bash its way through a large snow drift, the Scout was up to the task.
I’ve no desire to get hit by any vehicle, but against any non commercial non military vehicle, my money is on the IH or Scout to survive the encounter.Jul 28, 2019 at 4:38 am #3603797
Phonology class is over so now until the end of September I just have to work . That means I get to work on the International more :) We got the transmission out today and I steam cleaned it.Jul 28, 2019 at 4:47 am #3603798
Is that out of a M1 Abrams?Jul 28, 2019 at 5:09 am #3603800
^^^ just about :)
I can’t imagine doing this without the tools that we are using…forklift included.Jul 28, 2019 at 5:15 am #3603801
Ps I had to google it thoughJul 28, 2019 at 12:33 pm #3603810
Cast iron everything.Jul 29, 2019 at 2:00 pm #3603949
Even the doors are really heavy.
