Howdee all,

 

I was just gifted a 1975 IH Cargo star fire truck that was converted as a Parade truck. The pump and tank were removed.  It runs good enough, needs new front tires and some carb work.  Looking for specs on engine trans etc.

Initial problem im having is I can't get the cab to tilt forward so I can work on the carb. It seems the primary latch release isn't releasing? 

Model # on Vin plate = C01710B  VIN# =D1022ECA25902*

Any help is appreciated.  Will send pics once all registered on this site.

Chris, you might try oldihc.org. It is all truck so you might get more hits over there.

Does the whole cab assembly lift or just the front part?

The early cab releases had to be pulley, the cab raised a bit, and then pushed to release the second latch. 

By 75, it should just have a pull handle, and a cab jack. It will just be a pull handle. Check and make sure the cab jack has fluid in it. If it’s low, it cannot develop enough pressure to lift the cab off the latch.
