  1. Purchased this truck about 6 months ago, from fellow member on here Edward Porter, for a firewood hauler. It's got the 478 V8 with a 5 speed, dump bed, knuckle boom crane (2 separate hydraulic systems). It's served me well so far, only a few minor fixes since I bought it. All maintenence items, air leaks, power steering hose, lights, etc. As you all know well im sure, she's no power house. But at least it's terrible on fuel! I've got a 5.9 24v cummins I intend on P-pump swapping and putting in the ol girl. Anyone ever done this in a fleetstar? My big hang-up is getting the air compressor worked in the system, would a stand alone electric pump keep up?
  2. 6 months ago I bought my first IH product. '68 Fleetstar 2010a, 478 w/ a 5 speed (75k on the clock), 16' hydraulic dump bed, knuckle boom crane. I bought it for my forestry business, and it's been a real treat (other than fuel costs lol). For last season I hauled about 130 cord of split firewood, 200 cord worth of logs, and a fair bit of slash/brush. It's slow, hot, and stinky, but man I love it! I purchased it from fellow member Edward Porter (through local Craigslist post), I believe he was the original owner of it. Since then, I've made only minor repairs (air leaks, power steering hose, lights, alternator, etc) and only added some side boards (built out of metal stakes, plywood side boards, and 2x6" top rails), and put in some Hella offroad headlights. Plans are to keep the ol girl going for another 10-15 years at least! She's a work horse, and a show truck all in one. It does well for hauling, rolling advertisement, parades, and cruising!
