I'm a diesel Scout guy, and haven't spent all that much time looking into any other aspects of the IH world (except some Web browsing and a brief stint working for Anything Scout last summer). Now, I need to.
I found a '74 IH 3/4 ton pickup for sale, and while I can't afford it and love my diesel Scout, my dad needs a 4x4 pickup, and this would be ideal for him (gotta introduce him into the IH world; he's got a Ford right now). I've taken a look; it appears to be in good condition offhand. I'll put the specs below.
I need to know if there are any trouble spots to look for on this truck (anything different from a '80 Scout II as far as trouble spots?). Anything else? Any obvious trouble signs with the gas engines (again, I've got a diesel)? Thanks in advance! Also, it's got dual fuel tanks...what's the size on them? And what would this truck be worth (I've got a price listed, but want other opinions)?
info on this truck:
1974 IH 200 All Wheel Drive pickup
392 V-8 with 4bbl Holley carb; supposedly runs well
Wide ratio manual tranny (T-18?)-new clutch
NP-205 transfer case
unknown rear end gears
exterior in decent shape; some rust on the roof but that's it; very little rust underneath (compared to my rusted-out Scout II
interior in EXCELLENT condition
Again, thanks in advance!
1980 International-Harvester Scout II SD-33T
