'67 1200B Project

Recommended Posts

Wasted no time and got to putting parts back on my engine! Cleaned the oil pump bolts and screen in part cleaner, and then installed the oil pump assembly. Does anyone know what I should do with the two round rear main seals that are sticking up slightly? Do I cut them flush with a razor blade or leave them and put the oil pan gasket over it?

Then took the oil pan and valve covers and pressure washed them. Took my grander with a flap wheel and began to remove 50 years of rust build up on them. Cleaned everything inside and out with acetone afterwards. Should be ready to install and paint now.

Trim the side seals flush with the block , and take note that the 2 bolt holes in the rear main bearing/seal retainer are open holes

and the bolt threads should have a dab of Hylomar or equivalent , You almost got the parts clean enough to chrome !! :)

Awesome, thank you Kevin! I have some high temp thread sealant that I can put on those two bolts in the rear main block. Using rubber oil pan and valve cover gaskets, what is the best to apply to them? Light film of RTV or I have Indian Head shilac.

731, might have a "spare" IH front axle, had to replace all the running gear under my 1200 crew cab, as my son exploded the rear axle plowing snow. I have everything from the front axle rear axle, and transfer case

My 1200 is now running 35's, 3/4 ton Ford running gear to include the springs which gave it a 4 inch lift. Also fixed my fuel pump issue with an electric pump, no problem since then

Interesting...The 44HD I picked up does need a new left steering knuckle. And I would like the change out the 4.88 gears to 3.73. What transfer case do you have?

Almost positive the gears are 373, and as for the transfer, not sure of the model, any help on identifying it?

What's wrong with your knuckle? It's the enclosed ball unit right? Bearings shot? Or is it leaking? This front axle was broke when I frst got it, had to weld and reconstruct the pass side knuckle, it took a bit of welding and grinding to get it just right to put the bearing back into its original spot. Never had an issue with it after the repair

If it came out of a 60's 1200, it is a usable transfer case for my truck. The issue on the drivers side steering knucle is that the king pin bearings are shot, and the someone welded the kingpin cover on the bottom. I could grind it off and tap the holes if I have too. It is a closed knuckle axle that I have. Not having to regear the one I have would be a lot less work though.

Yes, transfer from 65 1200, works fine. As for front, no other welding on it as far as I know. King pin bearings replaced, as was ball wipers, if I remember correctly, that was a cple rebuilds ago

What are you asking for the front axle and transfercase? Any way to verify the gear ratio?

Got the valve covers and oil pan installed today. Just dry installed the rubber valve cover gaskets so I can easily pull them off when I am pre-oiling the engine. Cleaned all surfaces with acetone and then began putting down Van Sickle IH Red tractor paint. I lost count how many coats I ended up laying, but there is a good amount of paint on this engine now.

I am quite happy with how it turned out. Letting it cure up overnight in the shop with a heater on it.

Absolutely, it feels good. Got a box of brackets and bolt-ons that I need to take to the radiator shop to be hot tanked. After that, I can paint them and their bolts and get the engine mostly assembled. Then on to the transmission and vehicle wiring.

I may have compulsively purchased a pair of NOS fleet side/style side end caps for my 1200, as soon as I saw them. I'd like to think that since I'm under 30 and single, that I don't have a use for money lol. Will be nice to be able to spot weld these in just like the ones I will be taking out.

Haha, I talk myself into buying IH stuff by telling myself that I better buy it now while I'm in good health and don't have to explain my purchases to anyone.

A lot of times I have stuff shipped to my shop in town, instead of having it left on my porch. Enough vehicles driving by my place on the county road to worry me.

Yeah, NOS definitely is a special thing that's hard to pass up. Unless it's 3-4X the price of new.

Take my word for it. If you are young and single and nos stuff shows up priced right buy it. It will only go up. About 12-15 years ago I let a bunch of K series fenders,hood skirts,rockers and such still with the tag go dirt cheap at an auction. I was like,I don't have one of those trucks,that stuff takes up a lot of room....DUMB!

I have to watch what IH parts I pick up. I am bad enough to go "Hey, I have these NOS mirrors...I should build a truck to put them on."

Well with work and a few other projects keeping me busy the last few months, I finally completed a task on the '67 1200B. Nothing too big, but I did rebuild the horn mount on the wheel. I picked up the lower ring off of Ebay, with three good rubber fingers that hold the horn button in place. The existing rubber fingers on my mount were broken and didn't do a darn thing. I drilled out the rivets, made the lower rivet holes larger, as well as the holes on my top ring. Assembled everything and riveted it together. Ground the rear of the rivets down so it sits flush on the wheel. Horn fits nice and tight on the wheel now. It's the small victories... I did install new brake lines and proportioning valve last month, but mostly have been stocking up on needed parts for this project such as emblems.

Thank you Kevin. I have a set of tested gauges with 20k miles on them that all match. Plan is to switch out the gauges but reuse all of the dash trim. The dash has this perfect amount of age to it, I just can't bring myself to replace/restore.

Continued digging down to the metal in the cab. Removed the vent cover, hood hinges, wiper blades, windshield, and the rear window. This allowed me to get to the dash easier and remove the metal dash with vinyl covering,
