Build Sheet?

Recommended Posts

I think thats what they are called. The paper stuck in the right rear corner of the cab behind the seat on the R series truck. As this picture will show the one on my R160 has not fared well after 60 years of wear and tear and mouse chewing. I have heard that reprints are available but where from and at what cost I don't know.

Try Wisconsin Historical Society, they have most of the LSTs and they charge $20 I think. They need your frame serial number to get the correct one for your truck. Although you have part of yours so you might have the numbers they need.

Check on top of the glovebox first.I don't know if IH placed a second one in all trucks or not but I have found several there. But the mice know that too.I sometimes think IH trucks came with mice from the factory.Last year we did new counter tops,stove top and oven in the house .Some stuff was delivered and left in the kitchen. You guessed it;there were mice in one of the cartons. took a month to get them all

John, as you might guess, the glove compartments on my two old trucks were long gone before I even owned them. I don't have much trouble with mice nowadays that I keep poison bait stations in the sheds and have a small herd of cats on the farm.

Thanks for the ideas. Now I have a place to start looking.

Dad bought a brand new 67 Ford 'Country Squire' station wagon, and ----you guessed it. Mouse nest built in the headliner at the factory.

The first day they owned it, mama mouse chewed a hole in the headliner, and the babies started falling out on my mothers lap! Since my mother was TERRIFIED of mice, things went downhill in a HURRY! (Good thing she wasn't driving!) Ford bought a new headliner for it.

Oh man! Thats the least they could have done. I think I'd have held out for a replacement vehicle.

I have read before that line setting tickets are available, but I wonder if that applies to all North American trucks or U.S. only? The majority of Canadian trucks came from the Chatham plant so would all of that info be archived at Wisconsin also?

That is correct. Microfilmed linesets, which are the files that the archives got, for Fort Wayne built trucks start around 1950 and Springfield trucks a few years later, but linesets for Chatham built trucks didn't get microfilmed until probably the mid-1960s. If your serial number ends in a "C"--R160-xxxxxc--it's a Canadian built truck. It won't hurt to check with the archives, but I wouldn't hold my breath for this one.

I've heard that Southland International in Lethbridge Alberta might be able to help with Canadian trucks here's the link; http://www.southland...ge&Itemid=1

Loadstar, I got the build sheet for my Emeryville through the local International dealer. Gave him the ser# and he took it from there.

I ordered a parts manual for the 1952 L-110 from Binder Books. On there site says $20 bucks for line tickets. They looked into for me, reply was no tickets avaiable for any trucks from the 50's. So image Cdn truck info doesn't anymore. The 1950 that came from John R has American serial number, tried it also.

Post your line ticket or the codes you'd can't figure out, maybe I or others on here can help out.

I have been attempting uploads of my line setting ticket all day. Several different ways. I'm getting error codes and a message "post is to short" or "you need to post a message" and also a "you are not permitted to load this type of file" message. Hmmm....cleared the cache, rebooted and still having issues....

I'm hopeful that you will be able to click on the thumb nails and see a close up to read the information.

thanks for any help....

Those are pretty readable, what are some of your questions?? These trucks can really be changed over the years, but it started out as a 171" wheel base with a 19500# GVW rating. FA60 front axle, T31 5 speed direct in 5th transmission, and RA130 (Eaton 13600) 2spd axle, 6.33/8.81 ratio.

It appears to be exactly that what you state. What could one expect for a top speed with that ratio you mention...seems it is geared very low. Although there are 10.00x20 on the rear and 9.00x20 on the front now. Also I read that it is a low compression V345....International exported this motor and was capable of burning kerosene? The odometer reads just over 44k and the guy I bought it from says it is accurate so there is no sense in doing a major overhaul on this motor. Any thoughts on these questions?

The 12110 code is the standard code for the 345 in the early days, so I'm pretty sure what you have is standard compression and not the low compression for export one.

According the some online gear ratio/speed calculators I looked at, with the 10.00x20 tires and the 6.33 high gear ratio you'll be 60 mph at 3000 rpm and about 65 at 3400 rpm.

There is not much information out there on the T 31 transmission. I'm wondering if an overdrive 5th would be adaptable in place of this direct in 5th?
