    UD 6 engine in a Buffalo Springfield roller

    Hi I have been offered a starter for this engine . It’s originally off a ud 9 . It has the same 3 stud mount as mine . Any opinions on whether it will be likely to fit it ? The starter is in a different country so I’d like to know if it will fit before I buy it as the shipping cost is very expensive.

    International Harvester UD 6 engine

    I’ve been offered a starter motor off a ud9 . Anyone know if it will my ud6 ? It’s in a different country so I can’t just give it a try ! It has the same number of bolts as mine should have .

    That’s very useful to know . Thank you .
  4. Hi I have a Buffalo Springfield roller with a UD 6 engine in it . The serial number on the engine is UDBKM3941. When I bought it the head was not fitted to the block. It was stripped some 30 years ago by some one with I presume the intention of repairing a fault . The frost plugs seem to have blown in the head so I’m hoping this was the problem. In the meantime I seem to be missing some parts . Namely 1 push rod , the head gasket , new frost plugs , distributor for the magneto , starter motor . All the parts were greased after stripping so I’m hoping the original fault was not considered terminal for the engine . Any thoughts or advice on where I might source the parts I’m after ? Also any thoughts or advice in general on the engine , likely problems, rebuilding it , getting it to run etc . Any Ideas welcome as I have never done a gas / diesel before . I’m in Ireland by the way . So ideally I’d like to source all parts from one company if possible to try get the shipping for a reasonable cost ! Thanks for reading this much ! Quote Edit
