  1. I don't think they are worth anymore than 1500 dollars here unless there was some record of service work done to it.There are quite a few trucks being retired on account of rust and other things so they won't certify. Also quite a few school buses that have that engine and can't be certified as they are to old. This C&C had a 7 speed transmission with hydraulic brakes and I was able to drive it home. It ran ok but the trans shift detents are all wore out so it falls out of gear when not under load. I was hoping to fix the transmission but so far the story I am getting here is the parts are
  2. I bought a 1996 IH 4900 truck from the wreckers for parts. The cab and frame are quite rusty. The engine is tagged as a 175 hp version and has a mechanical Bosch pump. I wondered if anyone could tell by the picture how many valves per cylinder this engine has. I haven't seen one that has the intake air entering the top of the valve cover like this one.
  3. I thought I have read that there is a idler gear that drives the pump that the bearing can go bad. If that is the issue it can be fixed by removing the pump.If it runs to long it can damage the drive gear in the trans and has to be split.
