Lineset tickets are now available...Again

Recommended Posts

The lineset tickets are now residing safely at the IH-McCormick Archives at the Wisconsin Historical Society.

You can get a copy of a lineset ticket for your truck again.

International Truck and engine did not want to provide the service any more so the WHS took the collection of lineset tickets which consisits of about 2,400 rolls of microfilm.

You can get a copy of your lineseticket through one of the light line truck dealers such as Scout Connection or Super Scout Specialists or you can get one direct from the WHS.

The phone number at the WHS direct to the work study students that handle the lineset tickets is:

608-264-6410 The cost is $20 and the tickets are a lot nicer quality than when Navistar did them.

You can actually read them. LOL

As they go through the microfilm they are copying the rolls so the originals can be stored in the same vault as the movies from United Artists and NBC.

Lineset tickets are available for trucks from 1950 to 1984. 1984 to present are still be handeled by International.

would this kind of be like a 'build sheet' from the factory?? :blush:

Lineset was the IH term for a build sheet.

But if you're looking for the info on a pickup, don't get your hopes too high if it's an early 50s truck. Fort Wayne started microfilming linsets about 1950 as stated above, but Springfield didn't start until the mid-50s--with the S series I think.

i was guessing that is what they were probably talking about. the only truck i have that i would need the information on is my 1933 B-4 so it doesnt apply to me much anyhoo. i got lucky with my 73 1210 4x4 and got the lineset ticket, the copy of the invoice order form, the small plastic owner registration card (credit card size), and a copy of the original owners service policy. i got lucky and scored good on that truck, all the paperwork was still in the glovebox :blink::blink:

Vin number is all you need. I think Howard may know where all of the other lineset tickets are hidden away but he's not telling. :-)

The only hidden linesets I know of are those glued to the top of the light line glove boxes that you have to know about to know you should look there.

As for any files of older linesets, as far as I know there were only paper copies before the microfilming began and I presume the paper copies got dumped long before I started at IH. I never heard of any secret stashes.

I emailed the Archives a couple weeks ago to find out if the linesets were available yet. Here is their reply:

Howard,

We're ready to take orders. We require pre-payment by check or credit

card. Our fee is $20

To request, send model, year and VIN to:

McCormick-International Harvester Collection

816 State Street

Madison, WI 53706

FAX: 608-264-6484

E-MAIL: askmccormick@wisconsinhistory.org

Let me know if you have questions.

Lee

While the VIN should be enough, having the year and model will help them be sure to get the right one.

And John Glancy at Super Scout Specialists advised that SSS would give a 10% discount on orders for linesets if you mention the RPM forum.
