A Good IH

How much would a good IH cost? And also, what's the specs for these vehicles as far as running gear and power plant. I know hardly anything of the Scouts and would like to know a lot more. They may be a consideration when I go hunting for my rig. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Re: A Good IH

Im a big scout fan I have 4 you could probaly get a good one for around 2000-3000 dollars depending on your location. International built their own engines the 345 and 304 v8 were most common both are very solid engines. Scouts were also availble with a commanche six cylinder and Nissan deisel and an International 4 cylinder all of the engines are solid and powerful except the 4 I dont know much about it. Scouts were availble with auto and manual trannys the auto was a Chrysler 727 which trust me is a very heacy duty tranny. The manuals were 4 speeds with a 3 speed around too but I dont know much about it. The 4 speeds were Borg warners T18,T19,t19A, all three were excellent trannys but are hard to find now. The three speeds were built by IH so they are probaly well built. The tranfers cases were Dana 300 and dana 20 both good transfers. Scouts came with Dana 30 front axles and dana 44 back axles til 1974 when both front and back were danna 44. Scouts were very well built vehicles but they are big time rust magnets other than that the frame and running hardly ever go bad unless it was seriously abused I have a scout forsale for 500 bucks but it is far from good shape the floor is rotted out check ebay there are always scouts on auction for a good deal.

Check into "the binder bulletin". They have a classified, links to other Ih sites, and more IH info than you can shake a stick at.

I agree with newdad: check "the binder bulletin"

They have a great Tech Library. Check out the FAQs.
Here's a link to SSS Inc's Value Guide (it's a bit old but worth checking out):
