Nice IH, where did you get the front axle?
I also am a fan of the way it sits as picked up. I'd get it running, give a wash-down and drive it the way it is. nice find; love those old internationals!
the truck is coming along nicely. ill have to try to stop up that way sometime as i was born in Hazelton, but we lived down in the rock/fern glen area and have alot of relatives in the area still
On post 90 it looks like you flipped the steering arms(?) from pointing back like in mockup to pointing forward. Won't the sharp angle of the rack arms make for sketchy steering?
The steering box was set behind the crossmember to start, but it would steer in the opposite direction that way. It is meant to be a front steer. That is why we moved it. I do believe the steering will be ok in its current position.
That would be great. We are in the shop mon-fri 6:30-5:00
I do understand that but a 50 or so horse engine with mechanical brakes and steering is not very much fun to drive when you are in your later 70's.
Are yuo interested in selling the drive train? Denny 815-229-5014
Fill it with gas and floor it!
Here are finally some updated pics. We finally have our new addition and spray booth completed and back to working on customer cars. Hope you enjoy!
Well thought out, well executed. You're doing a nice truck justice! Thanks for sharing the whole experience.
Lookin great fellas! bout time!
Your work looks top notch,,,,,,but it's going to end up just another Gold Chainer bragger special,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,IMO,,,,,,,,,,but I'm an old fart.
That is looking real nice!
It looked so much nicer before.
Nice job,,your customer will be thrilled that it don't drive like a shopping cart. Was the wood available or you got someone handy with lumber to make door and cab pieces?
I am going to look at a package deal (2 '34 Int'ls) to possibly keep me busy this winter.
we had a local sleigh restorer rebuild the cab
bitchin... we'll be down in a week or two to get that olds fender out of your face, haha!
No prob on that fender its at our storage area
Nice find, get it "chugalugin"
Looks good! Truck is going to be very nice when it is done.
Looks pretty good. Its a lot better than what other people might do, either r*t rod it out or make it a "billet clad fluff mobile".. Im really glad you kept the bias ply tires, however, i have a feeling it might look better with some taller bias plys to fill out the fender opening a bit better.
Thanks guys. On the tires I think you might be right. The truck sits a little higher now with new springs up front.
This picture looks like the rack and pinion is attached to the frame - is that correct? It is hard to tell from this angle.
If so, what happens to the alignment during suspension travel? Or am I all wrong on what I am seeing?
gonna be some serious bump steer i'm thinkin', if it's not on the axle.
