What about the Dodge Fuel filter?
It looks pretty close
GRD crankshaft shims
The Green Diamond engine has shims that go behind a thrust washer to limit the axial movement of the crankshaft. The pinion shims from a Dana 60 axle will work, as they have the same inside diameter.
Dana PN 701012X is a kit of assorted shims.
In the kit comes the following parts:
PN 30291-1 / 0.003" shim
PN 30291-2 / 0.005" shim
PN 30291-3 / 0.010" shim
PN 34801-1 / 0.014" shim
PN 34801-10 / 0.010" shim
PN 34801-2 / 0.016" shim
PN 34801-3 / 0.018" shim
PN 34801-4 / 0.020" shim
PN 34801-5 / 0.22" shim
Six States Distributors stocks the first three on a pegboard, and they cost something like 12¢ per unit. The others are not normally stocked individually, but can be ordered. They cost around 23¢. Or, you can just buy the whole kit and give it to your engine builder and let him worry about selection.
The kit is also a part of PN 708020, which is a complete shim kit required to rebuild an entire Model 60 axle, including the shims for the carrier bearings.
If you decide to order from Six States, remember to say this is for International Scouts and Trucks of Oregon. They have a COD account, and there is a certain amount of discount to be gained by using it. More about that HERE in Post 11.

Keep your eyes open for the yearly NAPA filter sale.
I bought a case last year for the retail price of three filters.
Yup, the NAPA sale is in Feb. around here. You place your order and 4 weeks later you have your filters and cheap!! It pays to plan ahead and order in Feb.
Ignition Coil Rewinding
The original ignition coil on the M-series trucks was a weird unit with a round ceramic insulator and a cap that covered it and connected on the bottom. The old units were used on 1940s-vintage and older trucks and cars that used Delco ignition systems, and have not been available since about the 1950s. The coils that are available now work perfectly fine but aren't visually correct. If you have an original coil that is bad and want to make your truck spot-on, there is a place that will rewind the original coil.
Advanced Electrical Rebuilders
Ask for a guy named Jason. He rewinds vintage ignition coils. He also does work on other old electrical components including generators, alternators, starters, horns, and voltage regulators.
A fellow named Robert Dudkowski in Poland reproduces the metal plates used on the M-series trucks. His user name on G503 is "Lt. Horne". His e-mail address is <email@example.com>. He makes hundreds of data plates for different military vehicles. Here is a LINK to a photo gallery showing most of his plates. You will need to spend a long time reviewing all of his plates.
He makes new plates/tags for the following:
Brown-Lipe transfer case;
Delco distributors, generators, voltage regulators, and starters, in red and black;
dashboard data plates for the M-1-4, M-2-4, M-3-4, M-5-6, M-5H-6, and halftracks;
Garwood winch ID plate;
round and sector tags for some of the knobs on the dash;
manufacturer identification plates for the Garwood and Anthony cargo bodies, dump bodies, wrecker bodies, etc.;
If you don't see what you need, e-mail him about it. If he hasn't made one yet, he can duplicate what you need from an old tag or from a photo.
GRD thermostat & water horn gasket
I borrowed an original Green Diamond 233 thermostat from Jeff, took some photos, and made some measurements. The old unit is a balanced thermostat, and was a type that once was quite common. I have seen them for sale at swap meets for old Ford cars. However, they are not made the old way any more.
Based off of the dimensions of the old unit, I found five that Stant makes that will work.
180°F - PN 45368
195°F - PN 45369
160°F - PN 13366
180°F - PN 13368
195°F - PN 13369
Stant also has a gasket that looks like it will fit.
The NAPA interchange numbers are here.
180°F - PN THM 533080
195°F - PN THM 533090
160°F - PN THM 42
180°F - PN THM 142
195°F - PN THM 242
Gasket - PN THM 1038ST
If you look in the second photo, you can just make out a bypass hole on the bottom. That allows coolant to trickle through when the stat is closed. The hole is fits a 1/16" drillbit perfectly. If you want, you can add the bypass to the new stats yourself, although I believe the new ones have a slight bleed around the valve without drilling an additional hole.
The stat with the green spring is the standard-duty unit, and the heavy-duty unit has a stainless steel spring.
Fuel Tank Cap. Does anyone know where I can buy a new fuel tank cover for an IH M5H6? The ones from the tractors fit, but they say"Buy clean fuel, keep it clean" and I want the plain one like the original. Al Hansel 507-528-2780
I found this whilst looking for step bore cyls, they rebuild all types and resleave in stainless.
Here's some more info on brake repair.
Karps brake service
Will rebuild step cyl for about $100.00
Will reline bakes.
This site also looks good
Will rebuild stepped cylinders for $120.00
Timken rubber lip seal number 455173 is a perfect fit to replace the original felt type rear wheel hub seals.
For the rear brake flex hoses that go from the frame to the rear axles on an M5H6, I found a Pronto part number that is a near exact fit... Pronto H4751 ... they are made in China..
What truck do those hoses fit?
I'm sorry - forgot to tell you the Pronto brake hose number H4751 fits the rear on a M5H6
M-5H-6 fuel selector valve
This is available from Anderson Brass as their Model 215CL. Call them to find which local wholesalers can sell them to you. More information in THIS THREAD.
Attached photos show the valve, with the original M-5H-6 handwheel mounted.
To install, remove the lever that comes with the valve, and file two flats on the stem to allow the handwheel to fit.
Could you please provide the website and/or contact information for these rear brake flex hoses? I too am working on a 1945 M5H6 Internation LWB Dump Truck
If you take your old hose to a hydraulic ram rebuild shop such as a forklift repair shop they can make you a new one.
I am lucky that there is a Royal Brass shop in town and they can copy hard line in stainless as well as make all types of flex hose on their weather head machine using gates or even armored Teflon lined brake hose material.
I took my old rusty brake lines over for My M5 and had new ones ready to install in minutes.
I found the attached detail in one of the O&M manuals, which shows the plug wires installed.
Based on this detail, I see that the distributor ends of the wires are straight, and the boots have annular rings around the boots.
Those distributor boots are hard to find.
Brillman has them, PN B-9003-007.
There is also a fellow on eBay that goes by the name “retrorowcrop” that sells the boots; sometimes he even has them with the Man-on-the-Tractor logo.
The photos with the red background came from a “retrorowcrop” auction.
Can anyone give me a source for Green Diamond 233 head bolts? thanks for any info.
