This thread is going to be dedicated to one of my favorite binders in my stable.The C1300. The C1300 is one of the heavy dutyest binders to ever come from IH light line, in my opinion. Just think about it...To get a truck like this today you would need to get a ford 450 super duty or greater. This thread will also serve as sort of a journal and will follow the transformation and constant upgrades, modifications, and maintanance pertaining to this truck. Im also doing this in honor of other members C series heavy duty trucks particularly bloodyknuckles's C1300 he built. That truck is another classic example of IHC heavy duty light line beauty and has inspired me to help maintain and drive one of the greatest looking trucks in history. This truck came with a 304 origannly, but now has a 392. The GVW is 10,000 lbs and the wheelbase is 132". Here is the door tag: The beginnings of this tale can be found here: http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103762 Some quick specs my particular truck has are as follows: The original 304 has been swapped out for a healthy improved cooling 392 with the original t98 4 speed. Its a square bore manifold with a edelbrock 1404 carb. The ignition is a pertronix with a off the shelf recommended 1.5 ohm coil. Dual 2 1/4" exhaust flow thru "smitty" mufflers as my dad calls them.....glass packs as the newer generation calls them or cherry bombs. Other than that the engine is bone stock. Stock cooling,etc. It does have a electric aftermarket block heater from when this truck lived in Illinois. I will most likely remove it because its just not needed in AZ. The T98 4 speed is basic as it comes. Im not sure the clutch size. One of the main gems to this drivtrain is the Warn auxiliary transmission. Its a model# 4395 and serial# 04690355. I have not been able to find out ANY info on the web about this unit except for a old Popular mechanics magazine ad that shows the exact unit advertised. If anyone knows anything about these, please speak up. It apears cast aluminum and seems very beefy. It shifts great and comes in handy with the 4.88 gears. It definatly makes it more enjoyable to drive on the hwy. I will be removing the rear output seal soon as it is starting to weep. I will probably do it about the same time as I reseal the 202 transfer case, as it too is startig to weep in various places. I am ordering a line set ticket today. Id like to figure out the axles. My best geuss from searching on here make me belive it is a RA15 or 20 in the rear. and the front is the dana 70 but the IH designation is unknown. Im not to clear on IH axle codes. I used to be ok with them but have forgotten much. I am currently driving this as a daily driver. The next mods will be to install my tool boxes which will be cool as I have a great idea for them. The 9 1/2' bed is awesome and provides plenty of room. Im going to try to be like bloodyknuckles and strive to keep things period correct. I will be mounting some jerry cans on the bed as well as some old school gun racks in the rear window when I find a set. I refuse to put the plastic garbage they sell now. Everything works as far as what the truck came with. Turn signals, gauges, etc all work and appear in great condition, so time will be spent in other areas. I also plan on installing a front winch soon. I belive I have a factory C series winch somewhere and a an old 8274 winch. If not, Ill use my 15000# warn, even tho its not period correct. Heater works great and there is no radio. Not sure if Im going to ad one or not. Probably not. Anyway, comment, suggestions and whatever are encouraged. I have no set plan as to updates, but I will post them up as they happen.
