  1. Thanks for the input everyone. I guess it’s just to have something a little unique and a project. Not sure what will happen with it yet. He asked me about it, and I figured this was a perfect place to get feed back. thanks
  2. Hey guys. I got a buddy just picked up a 1600 loadstar, and he wants to put a 6v71 Detroit in or 6-53 (Currently has stock 345) Has anybody on here done this kind of thing, and or have any advice? We obviously understand it’s not a simple swap, but just curious what we would be up against? Thanks
  3. Well I went ahead and swaped the motor, and I’m not haveing much success with the injection pump. The motor runs real nice on gas, but I can’t get the injection pump to build pressure. I got the filters bled and fuel running out of them, the tank is 3/4 full. Ive checked/cleaned the needle in the top of the pump where fuel enters, I’ve cleaned the needle in the lift pump, and I’ve pulled the cone (not sure of the correct term) out of the pump and found a cup in there that looks to push up into a plunger at the bottom of this cone that is also free. I must be mis
  4. Agreed that a head swap would be the simplest, however I have tried this and I can’t seem to find a decent head worth fixing in my part of the world. So when this option of a complet motor came up I’m eager to give it a try. Thanks guys, my hope is to drop the motor in and tinker with the original pump and get er going. Just want to know all my options before I dive in. Adam
  5. Hey all, I have a TD9 sitting here with a bad head. I’m looking at swapping out the motor out. My only hang up is the donor motor has the IH pump that “may” be weak. My question is could I swap the pump from the blown motor that has the boch A pump into the donor engine with the IH pump?? Thanks for the advice
  6. Hey guys, I’m replacing the rear u joint on my 74 200, and I’m wondering if The drive should pull out of the yoke coming from the transfer case where it’s splined??? I assume yes, and mine i assume is rusted in tight, but maybe it’s not suppose to pull apart? Figured id ask the pro’s before I get the big hammer out and wreck something. Thanks
  7. Hey all. I’m getting back to work on my 74 IH 200 pickup. I’m trying to get the brakes in order and having trouble getting parts for the booster and master cylinder. According to my local parts store I’m told they can only get what they say is the “heavy duty” master cylinder, and according to the part number on mine it’s a “standard” size. My question is do you think the heavy duty will fit and work in my truck?? Thanks guys.
