  1. 1979 S-1824 HYDRAULIC BRAKE QUESTION

    Cool, I think you are right. With the truck off and you touch the pedal you can hear a pump run. I hope the internals are ok, the truck has sat many years with a broken brake line, I'm just getting to moving it into the shed to restore it. I wonder if the pump runs with the engine running like a power assist ? I'd like to know what you call the part so I could look up how to rebuild it. Or who makes it, I've read Bendix makes these pumps. I can't find any pictures online of this same part, which worries me.

    Hydraulic brake component question. What do you call this part in second picture ? This some type of abs unit ?
  3. Acquired this 1979 IH S1900 from my father, it was a boom truck in his company, pulled lots of underground cable in its life. Sat the last 20 years as a yard bird. Service box was rotten beyond repair. I really like the look of the truck but hated the boom attachment, we removed it from the truck this weekend, and had it sold in a day online. The truck has a cool shorty look to it as a cab and chassis truck. I bought another cab for it as the original had rust on the rocker on the driver side as well as the front mounts were weak. Not to mention some ungrateful teenagers smashed the front windshield, both door windows as well as caved in the roof !!! I plan to change the cab, repaint it the same Color and restripe it the same. I bought new front rims and tires to replace the split rims. It has a gas engine, my question is how do I identify what model v8 engine it is ? Thanks
