  1. T35, T496, T699 transmission parts

    Ya I measured the part that goes in the pilot bearing. The truck has a New Holland hay retriever bed on it and I plan on using it to haul stacks of hay. It'll get used in the summer and fall and that'll be about it. The loads of hay will be about 3 1/2 ton at a time. So it shouldn't be that big of a job for a Loadstar 1800. It needs to be solid and dependable. Here is a picture of the truck. It's in pretty nice shape and not beat to death, but the last 15 years of sitting around hasn't done it any favors.

    Sorry for all of the questions - here is another one. Both of the transmissions I am working on have been out of the vehicles for a long time. Both have rust on the gears to varying degrees. Attached a are pictures from the T36 showing what I am talking about. Can this be cleaned off and still use the gears? I tried scraping with a pick and it comes loose pretty easy. Wondering if after cleaning them up they would still be okay to use. Also noticed the reverse gear has a small chip. Wondering if that can still be used. Thanks,

    Okay - Now I am understanding the differences. The T496 is in town at the transmission shop, it probably does have the larger 1 1/2 input. I didn't check the clutch disk, I was more concerned about the pilot bearing being the same. If I can't find the correct input shaft for what I have, couldn't I just change the clutch disk to match the input shaft on the T36?

    Well I just checked the part numbers on the input shafts. One is a 238581R2 and the other is 238579R2 Visually they look the same but there must be something different.

    Thank you so much for the information. The truck does need a working PTO - that's the next thing I need to figure out is if the PTO from the T496 will work on the T36. If you can check out the PTO for me I would really appreciate it. Thanks

    Thanks TRAVELETTE - I went ahead and bought two transmissions that I found on craigslist today. One is a T35 and the other is a T36. I had to get them home and put them in 4th and turn the input shaft to figure out what they were. First time I have seen any International transmissions on craigslist in the last few months and they were within 35 miles of home. They look like they will bolt up to the bell housing on the MV and they have the correct input shaft. Seems like the T36 is the one to use because it matches the gear ratios of theT496. I was hoping someone could confirm the T36 would work, but haven't gotten any confirmation yet. Do you know anyone that would be able to tell me for sure? Thanks

    Thanks for all the replies. Still looking for some answers. The motor in this truck is a MV446 and the transmission is T496. Maybe I should ask another question. Did IH build trucks with the MV series engine backed up with a T35 or T36 transmission? I have been able to find T35 and T36 transmissions locally but no T496. Thanks

    So can you put a T35 or T36 in place of a T496? The cases look the same and it looks like the gear ratios for the T36 and T496 are the same.
  9. T35, T496, T699 transmission parts

    I have the T496 from my Loadstar 1800 and it has been run low on oil. The main shaft and gears are heavily damaged. Does anyone know where you can get parts? Also would the main shaft and gears from another model transmission interchange? Trying to figure out where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Bill
  10. Loadstar 1800 Transmission Options

    Thanks for all the information. I did enough research to know that I don't want to switch to the fuller 6 speed. It requires changing more than I want to change. So here is another question. If a T36, T496, or a T699 would all be a bolt in replacement, which one should I use? I have a T496 but was thinking if one has an advantage over the other maybe change. With theT699 being a newer version there must be some improvements?
  11. Loadstar 1800 Transmission Options

    Thanks for the add. I have been searching through the various loadstar topics on troubleshooting electrical and transmission issues for this Loadstar 1800. This 1976 loadstar 1800 is my project. I put up hay and wanted a truck with a retriever bed to haul hay with and found this truck locally. It had been sitting for many years and with a little work I got the MV446 running. My biggest concern now is I believe the transmission is trashed. It's a T496 and I'm pretty sure someone put 90 wt gear oil in it. Smells like it and lots of brass, chunks of metal and other stuff came out with it when I drained the oil. The truck still shifts and moves but there is no way I would trust it. I have been looking around and replacement transmissions for these trucks are not very easy to come by in our area. I did run across a Fuller six speed FS6406A transmission that looks like it would bolt in. They were used in later model International trucks. Looking for any suggestions or comments if this would be a good idea. I have always really liked these trucks and want to get it back into useable condition. It's in otherwise pretty nice shape and looks better than most trucks relegated to hauling hay.
