    Emblem Reproducer

    One doesn't need to learn cire perdu casting and handling molten metals. One just subcontracts it to specialists, of which there are many. 1. There are numerous companies that make metal items such as challenge coins, badges, and nameplates. Monterey Company is but one example. Someone...

    Scout/IH truck Sightings

    I never saw the 1981 series "Brideshead Revisited" until just recently. (Excellent series, BTW. It was remastered, and is much more watchable on our modern, high-definition televisions. Apparently, a new remake of the series is being filmed at this time; hopefully, they don't ruin it.) In...

    Good Evening, I am not quite sure why I didn't get notified that you had posted this, but I just saw this tonight. Guessing that you may have identified yours by now. If not, I am willing to help. Feel free to e-mail me at "realsalmineo@earthlink.net", and I will do what I can.

    alternator for 57 metro question

    Since you are installing what is essentially a custom unit in an older truck, the date range is irrelevant. And yes, the generator pulley won't necessarily fit the alternator. I concur with Greg, unless you know what you are doing, I would try to find an auto electric shop instead of buying...

    alternator for 57 metro question

    I reckon for that price, then why not get the 100A? The earlier alternators had the voltage regulator mounted on the fender, not inside the alt. I kept my old reg and put an 80A alt in the '67. The one nice thing about the fender-mounted regulator is that you can replace it yourself without...

    alternator for 57 metro question

    Turns out Patrick's were out of business as of 21 November 2018. Too bad, they were an excellent resource. Whether you go with a 100A or a 60A depends upon what you are doing with/to the truck. The original factory alternator in my 1967 1100 was only 40A, and it was enough for anything that a...

    Perkins Diesel Information

    Thank you. That is useful information. I was hoping to use the old SV bell housing, as the rear engine mounts stay the same. Going to a different bell housing means that the rear crossmember and mounts need to be redesigned and fabricated. Not impossible, although my access to workspace...

    RnD Fabrication warning

    A little more input. When I converted my 1969 1200 from 2WD to 4WD, the original radiator still fit. Nothing changed in the front end. However, mine didn't have air conditioning. It appears to me that the fitment issue on the upper water horn is an issue related to the mitered and welded...

    I am still here. I will PM you my phone number. Give me a call to discuss.

    FDB / DHS and FEB / DHK Engine Thread

    I figured that there were other books out there, so I called Binder Books. I wasn't aware that they had been sold, and are no longer in Tigard, Oregon, but in Grass Valley, California as a part of IH Parts America. I spoke with Dave Bowman, and was pleasantly surprised. I was used to the...

    FDB / DHS and FEB / DHK Engine Thread

    I knew of several fuel pump rebuilders that I had used over the years. Back before the days of alcohol-augmented gasoline (pre-1990s), there were a ton of vendors that had NOS fuel pumps that they had bought from auto parts stores that had gone belly-up. However, when the fuel companies...

    FDB / DHS and FEB / DHK Engine Thread

    I was contacted by Binder Planet member John Culhane back in January of this year. John has a 1938 International fire truck. He found my old thread, and contacted me about finding more information about the truck and engine, and possibly a fuel pump. The engine that he has look like the...

    FDB / DHS and FEB / DHK Engine Thread

    So, to begin with, the International FEB engine is one and the same as the Waukesha DHK engine, and the International FDB engine is one and the same as the Waukesha DHS engine. That was probably the first thing that I wanted to get across to people.

    FEB engine questions

    Fifteen years have elapsed since I originally started this thread. I have started a new thread where I will post information on this engine and is related engines HERE. I ask that any further questions be posted there, not here.

    FDB / DHS and FEB / DHK Engine Thread

    This thread will discuss and share information about the "big" inline gas engines used by IH from the early 1930s through the mid-1940s. I had originally started a thread asking questions about the FEB-648 engine back in 2004, and a little information was gleaned. Then I forgot about for 15...
