Old Binder Guy Posted March 6, 2014 Share Posted March 6, 2014 There was some discussion over on the IH Tractor On Montana Farm thread regarding IH D series trucks. Rather than confuse things too much I will post the ad here as I know Gary stops by once in a while. This is a 1947 ad showing the KB 6 taking on a load of dirt. GVW of 14,500 pounds but using IH's "point rating system" they allowed an increase to 16,000 pounds for other jobs. I would guess that GVW was exceeded about a hundred percent of the time. Ralph, I stated over on the Montana thread how I liked listening to the 6-cylinder engine used in the KB-6 engines. Does anybody know: was that a 282 cubic inch engine? I had a 1960 B-170 with a non-synchromatic 5-speed transmission and that engine. I sure liked that truck. I remember it as being 282 CU IN, or one cube smaller than the Chevy V-8 of that time period.
