Changed the oil and filter, yanked the dizzy and primed it for about 5 minutes... Not I didn't rotate it or verify oil to the top end... :devil: restab and advance it a couple of degrees by eye..

Squirted for fuel in the carb and cranked it up it fired immediatly. Ran it at 1500 for about 2 minutes to get oil around good. Had a very slight tick but a few minutes later it sounded like the video attached. Yes really that quiet... Not a sound..

I ran it for about 15 minutes. Drove it back and forth to see that the clutch was ok.. Its a gem... Ac compressor even engaged and the fan blew strong...

Got the line setting ticket..
Odd that I see no mention of the rear bed. Was this truck delivered bare backed like with no bed?
Also I know for a fact that the front axle is the hd large closed knuckle fa 18 yet the LST says fa-16 and the vin tag shows only 7000 gvw yet with the fa-18 it should be 7400..

See what you can make of it...

If I read the ticky right it came with bucket seats and a console??? Ain't got that now... Its about 3/4 down the list..
Oh and my fault that I wrote that it was a 67. I knew better that it was likely a 68 with the headlight trim it has...

I believe the truck would have been ordered with no bed. Then shipped to a company to install the utility bed. Stahl was a popular contractor and I believe did the conversions on the medium series loadstar. I May be totally off my rocker too. It happens. Too much liquid courage :crazy: makes the night go faster.

Good lookin rigs Robert. Feel free to sell them to me any time. I'll be happy to relieve you of such a burdon

The bed has a manufacturers tag and I recall moorly or something similar from Pennsylvania. I'll sneak a peak this weekend when I visit them..
The truck was shipped to IH in anaheim so makes sense that the conversion was done locally..

Thatd be kinda cool if the IH dealership used it as an IH service truck. My grandpas 1300 was a service truck that did on site repairs for farmers. Lots of tires got pulled behind that truck.

The truck body was made by morysville body works in pa. The bed is late 60's vintage same as the truck.
Another very degraded label reads "distributed by kpk los angeles California".

I do believe this is the original configuration of this truck. The guy I bought it from told me that he purchased it from the original owner and that the camper was on it at that time.

I also believe the hd Dana fa was original to the truck or installed by the dealer. On the LST it is not possible to distinguish the whether the fa is the fa-18 hd or the fa-15 small knuckle. The fa-18 is in it so I guess that clears up the LST. Only the max gross vehicle weight does not read right on the data plate.. Who knows :confused: a couple of pix and a better video of it running.. http://youtu.be/1zku9bxw0oo

While poking around the t-ette I found two tags tied to the front and back seats. Dated feb 24 1970 and appear to have an IH part number on them 377546-c1-a. Tells me this thing was updated/altered near to 1970. The LST clearly stated "bucket seats w/console" an odd change but this is probably when the camper was added. I am guessing on this detail.... :rolleyes5::icon_razz:

I hear that on many IH trucks they glue/stick the LST under the dash some where. Where would that be on the pickup/t-ette? Would be cool to find it..

To the fiber jockey box liner. I've also seen them glued to the passenger a-pillar. Talk about a horrid location. No chance for moisture contamination there...oh no never.:out:

Re: 1964 Travelall and 1967 Travelette All Wheel Drive's
 
I tried to feel around the box but not able to get good access to the top. Would you expect the LST to be on the top? If so I'll see about looking.

Re: 1964 Travelall and 1967 Travelette All Wheel Drive's
 
I wouldn't rule out the top or back surfaces of the box, Robert. I hope you find it. Good luck.

I've found them on the top of the box on d series pickups.

Those are 2 very cool rigs! I have found the LST on the back of the glove box in all my d series trucks as well.
