Default Re: IH Parts Americas 1-Ton Travelall

Being end of June and just a couple weeks away from the Binder Bee I was down to some of the smaller tasks. A fuel pressure regulator was installed as well as a firewall vent for both the transmission and transfer case.



I wanted to make sure that the charging system was going to be more than I need so a mr. Amp alternator from our friends at performance distributors was installed. Although not a direct bolt in the time needed to modify the case for install was well worth it.



I also got some rare and hard to find parts from my brother Isa. With these last couple parts I could fix the rear tailgate and mount my visors.



Along with the beefier alternator a 2nd battery was installed for all the accessories.



And with the 2nd battery an isolator was installed along with a remote solenoid for the starter.





With the removal of the old hideous truck bumper I spent a few hours and put together this simple 2"x6" bumper.



After getting it back from being powdercoated it was installed.



Well nothing is ever easy. After putting a 60 mile round trip on the Travelall it was becoming evident that the engine wasn't in as good a shape as I thought. Although it ran well enough I could not keep the engine from blowing oil out the dipstick tube and no way was I going to drive to oregon while putting a fresh coat of oil on my fresh drivetrain and undercarriage. I had run into this type of problem before and after making sure the pcv system was functioning properly I threw in the towel and called in and ordered up a fresh 392. I knew it had to be done eventually but with two weeks to go before loading the family up and heading north the timing was cutting it close.



After a few hours I had the engine out and on the shop floor.



Yup! Looks like your typical 40 plus year old IH engine with 100k miles.

Since the engine was out and I had a few days to wait before the new 392 would be here I went ahead and took the time to detail the engine compartment.









After getting the engine compartment washed it was ready to be taped off and painted.









And after a fresh coat of paint. Looks much better now!







While I had easy access I went ahead and swapped out the old worn out steering joint and shaft for a borgeson style setup. These same borgeson parts ares available on our online store as a kit.

I also went ahead and installed an original am radio and uncut cover plate as I wanted to keep the dash looking as original as possible. I also tossed in a carpet dash mat to keep the dash pad protected in our California sun.



Still waiting on the new engine so I got a bunch of the engine parts ready.







What seemed like an eternity some 6 days after I had placed my order my new 392 showed up. Got to give props to my engine company who promptly got a core rebuilt and shipped to me(2 states away) in record time.



I immediately tore into the wrapping and got to work.







Working well into the evening I got the engine ready for install. At this point the engine had been in my possession for about 6 hours.



The next morning the engine was put on the hoist and the last few parts bolted on.

Chad stopped by to give me a hand in setting in the new 392.



And after a short while the 392 was in.



With no time to spare I literally jumped in getting everything installed and hooked up. It was now Wednesday, July 4th and I was leaving in 6 days.











By the afternoon the Travelall was running and camshaft broken in. After a nice break in run around the block(my around the block is about a 12 mile trip)yet another problem reared its head.



The original york a/c compressor blew up!



There was no way that I was going to pack my family in this Travelall in the middle of July without a/c so myself and Darren tore into the hvac system to see what we could do.





The original evaporator was in real good shape so it was flushed out and a new expansion valve was installed.



While I worked under the dash and on the evaporator box Darren got to work on fabricating mounts for the new modern condenser and receiver/drier. Fortunately we had just about every part we needed in stock to make the conversion work with the exception of a couple connectors.



After picking up those last couple of connectors that we needed from a local supplier Darren cut and crimped all new hoses and installed in a new modern a/c compressor using one of our CPT conversion brackets.

Default Re: IH Parts Americas 1-Ton Travelall

With the a/c all buttoned up and blowing cold it was time to deal with one last thing.



It was now July 7th and I could see the home stretch. The Travelall was still looking old and grimey as it hadn't been washed in years. There was no way that I was going to roll into oregon looking ragged so a thorough detail job was in order.



All the emblems and lights were removed with the exception of the side trim. Without knowing if the clips would break if I removed them(and not having any extra clips) I left the trim on for now.



Anytime I need one of my IH's cleaned up I always call in my good buddy Mike.



Mike put in some hard hours that day getting the Travelall all polished up.





Even my son zaed jumped in to help.







With a fresh coat of wax the rusty patina of the hood was looking good as can be expected.



I'm sure it had been many moons since this Travelall shined so bright.



With the removal of the passenger side tank it left a void where the fuel filler neck once was. A base cap off of an old IH air horn worked like a charm.



Working once again late into the evening the Travelall was ready for its next test before taking the journey up north.

Default Re: IH Parts Americas 1-Ton Travelall

It was now Sunday, July 8th. I was two days from leaving for oregon and had yet to even try towing anything behind the Travelall. I hitched up the travel trailer and made a trip down to the parents house about 30 miles away to get a feel for things.





Monday, July 9th. After a successful test drive with the trailer in tow the day before the Travelall and trailer were packed for the trip.





The trip to oregon went fairly well.







After a couple months of hard work it was nice to really use the Travelall and even play with it some.



After getting back from oregon I did have one major issue to contend with. On the long uphill grades when I was working the engine the hardest the rear differential would start spewing out gear oil.





When I built the exhaust system I ended up mounting the mufflers a little to close to the rear differential. When mostly floored running uphill and all that fuel through the exhaust system naturally it was going to heat up. That extra heat would get the axle hot. So I had to redo the back half of the exhaust system.



With the mufflers being moved the tail pipes had to be redone.





With the mufflers closer to the floor I didn't want all that heat transferring up through the floor boards so a simple heat shield was fabricated.

On July 24th I packed the Travelall up again with a bunch of parts and the family and this time we headed east.



This time we left the trailer at home and drove to fairplay, Colorado for the annual rocky mountain IH rendezvous. We had a great trip stopping along the way at a museum in green river, utah.



I didn't take any other pictures that trip except for this one. I couldn't believe how hot it was as that picture was taken in rifle, co(6000 feet elevation) shortly after 6:00 pm. The Travelall a/c worked awesome the entire trip.



For the next few months I did nothing but drive the Travelall around.

Default Re: IH Parts Americas 1-Ton Travelall

One complaint that I was getting from my passengers was how hard it was to get into the Travelall so in early December I decided to put on a set of rock slider like running boards.



To install them I found it was easiest to drill all the needed holes into the frame first.



Next the sliders were mocked up and everything was tack welded together.





Next everything got welded up.





I then sent them out for powdercoat.



Once back it was time to install the aluminum treadbrite that I had cut for them.





And this is how they look installed.









While I had the Travelall in the shop one problem that I was having on occasion that I wanted to resolve was vapor locking of the fuel system. To get better protection from the heat of the exhaust I moved the fuel line to the outside of the frame rail and installed a new hi-flow mallory fuel pump.



Well that wraps up the story of this project(although the project is never done). I have since been driving the Travelall quite a bit more as it really cruises down the highway well and has lots of room when hauling parts or people.

The only other change I have performed since is changed out the edelbrock 1405 manual choke carb for a more modern edelbrock quadrajet. For those curious when I went to Colorado I did average 11mpg for the trip which isn't bad for how big and heavy this vehicle is(and for how fast at times we were driving). But the 1405 kept giving me trouble with boiling over when shut down. I have yet to perform a fuel mileage check with the new carb but I hope it is only better(and my hot restart problem has been solved).

The nv4500 transmission is always a pleasure to shift. Even with 4.56 gears and the near 35" tall tires the rpm's at 65mph are only around 2000 when in overdrive but still decent enough for towing.

I especially like the license plate. It's the peanut butter & jelly truck. It looks like you used blueberry jelly though.

Man looks great. I had a boil over issue with my 14 bolt in my travelette. I swiched to amsoil and it went away. Also man I would swap to TBI it made a world of difference in my 392.

I have been really interested in the nv4500 swap. What shifter is that?

How much for a rebuilt 2wd nv4500?

Any more details on the swap itself?

The rear diffy boil over issue was resolved when I redid the back half of the exhaust. I hear you on the fuel injection and agree it will probably be better than the carb but for now I'm happy with how it performs.

The shifter is from advance adapters. We sell reman nv4500 transmissions already converted for IH input starting at $2500.

Inspiring!!!! I am interested in the leaf springs you installed on your Travelall. I have a '72 1210 that was a 2wd from the factory, but was converted to a 4wd, with a Dana 60 front end. How much are those springs??

This is an awesome build! It gives me much to consider and look forward to, in building mine. I am curious if any of these parts will become available to purchase? Those sliders and the bumper are awesome! And I'd be interested in a pair of those front spring mounts you made.

I'd also like to ask about that fuel tank. I've thought of installing one there, and having the stock tank feed into it, or maybe a separate filler. Not sure exactly just yet. But I'd like some more info on that tank and the install please.

I'm sure there's more, but I'll have to go through this posting again. Oh twist my arm! Lol!
