Default 1965 D1100 4x4 driver/project

Hello, I've admitted to my self that I may be SLIGHTLY over my head, and so I've come here. This is my 1965 D1100 4x4, I aquired around two years ago (you could argue this is my first car as its still the only one that runs), I love every minute of it. This thing has great bones, looks amazing from 50 feet away or more, however its far from perfect. Judging by the wad of receipts I found in it, it seemes the previous owner aquired it from a pick n pul years ago. I found it on craigslist for $3k, decided to go see it, fell in love and drove it home without any issues. Did I over pay? Who knows! But I liked it too much to risk the guy coming after me to snag it. Since then I've had some work done, and encountered a couple strange issues, but nothing I couldnt handle. Now I'm looking to really start working bugs out, and improving things, and here is where I may be a bit too deep. From this point on consider me a noob to most all things IH. I think I know a few things, but if anything I post isn't right, let me know, I'm trying to learn as much as possible here. More to come, so stay tunned! Next post will be whats in it is as it sits(also build sheet) and my "laundry list." Shortly thereafter should come an install/impressions of a reproduced wiring harness from XXX with possible red neck/gunsmith headlight switch repair! Also if they dont work here I will try to get pics in... Im not extremely computer savvy and only just joined... It only took me two hours to get this far also maybe somebody can tell me if Im right in being paranoid or not about posting pics of license plates?

Right, the pictures apear to have worked, now to the details. Truck as it sits has a large open knuck D44 front axle, rear is an old D60 (6 bolt shafts) with open diffs front/back, 4.10 gears and 8 lug hubs all the way around. Nice Warn locking hubs. Unknown T-case, maybe the original np 202 (T141 on build sheet)? I'm no expert but the cross member doesn't look original lol see pic. Original T98A 4 speed with lefty pto(have the pto but not installed) and also original 12100 E100 V304 "low comp. export"(?). It has about 1.5-2 inch body lift, consequently an out of place rag joint column from what I assume is a Scout2. IH looking power steering pump(not factory), unknown box.

Factory build sheet I recovered through Super Scout, and basic overview is D44s front and back(small closed knuck front/pwr lock rear) np202, T98A w/lefty pto, "HD FRT SPG"?(heavy duty front springs?), standard Ross manual steering gear, speedo-tools-misc?(would love a "factory" tool kit), 12 inch 12 spring clutch, V304 "export", 19 gallon tank, reg cab, 7 foot box, extra visor, US tubular(?smudged looks like tusular) tire carr(missing and needed), white cap white.

Has what I think is either factory or dealer BLOODY MASSIVE winch bumper and ramsey #8000 pto winch. Have the drive line and 2 winch, one original(bad shaft) one refurb that came with the truck. Was told it had some kind of front crane for standing up telly poles but who knows.

Currently the wiring I refer to as "the great ducttape massacre" and the gauges work off and on, amp gauge isnt hooked up(has a gm one wire 90amp, may have coocked some things), back lights dont work, signals and wipers used to work, headlights are FUBARed into what equates to maglight D cells from the late 90s. The brake switch seized up and I was an idiot trying to mash the pedal to unstick it, consequently the main line poped and the brakes bled out. I experienced making new lines on another truck, and not finding diy apealing trailered it to a local shop. While it was there I opted to remove the PTO in favor of twin pipes(the old exhaust hung from a chain). Ultimatly I got hosed. It took them 9 months to fix and almost half of what I payed for the dang thing at the end of it all they forgot to replace the switch so diy happened. 2 months later I took it to a show that my church hosted and noticed it sounded.... How can i put this... enthusiastic? Both pipes came unbolted from the headers and were sitting on the front axle. On the upside it sounded great for the show.
Anyways shortly there after it developed a noticable amount of lifter noise and I stopped driving it, I know it needs new oil, havent had time so far but it will go in with my new wiring in the next few months.

Anyways, out of time for now, more pics to come. Feel free to chime in with any comments. Info about the build sheet codes where noted would be greatly apreciated.

More pics. Odly seems to only allow me 6 at a time, last here is of a faded/old looking "arrow head" shaped sticker in the windshield, if anyone can tell me what it is, or post a pic of another one I would apreciate it. A bit of history also, the LST apears to have originated in Oakland CA, and shipped to Valley Truck & Tractor in Yuba. I happen lo live less than an hour from there and the store exists to this day however in a different location but the old building is still there as well.

And a few pics underneath, as you can see in the previous post, this truck is very capable off road, aparently to the poit where its upside-down!

Also a couple of the t-case. Np202? I havent been able to find a tag on it, but then again I didnt have time to remove muck when it was on the lift.

Cool truck. The axles are 3/4 ton running gear from a 1200 or even a later 1210. The PS pump/res unit is consistent with one that would be found in a full size platform rather than a Scout II. I would suspect then, but cannot confirm from the pics, that the steering gear box and column/shaft would likewise be from a full size pickall and not a Scout II. Your sob story about the work performed by the shop is an all too common refrain these days. Sadly it seems there are far too few shops around that truly have the desire and the know how to take on a vintage vehicle and perform the required work in a satisfactory and timely fashion. They're more used to working on more modern vehicles that are able to essentially tell the tech what is wrong via onboard diagnostics. In other words, no one wants to work on our rusty, old junk. To a large degree, this leaves us to our own devices. If the wiring really is as bad as you say, you'd probably be money and time ahead to gut it in favor of a universal kit, rather than attempting to bubble gum and band-aid the existing spaghetti mess back together.

True that on the "all too comon". I thought otherwise since the shop owner was a second gen IH dealer AT THAT LOCATION.(boonies near my house) he had an un papered 1966 1200 in his yard that I bought for parts and liked my truck, even drove an old r series himself. I kinda wish he charged me less but in the end it was semi worth it, he got alot of nostalgia from it and passed sadly earlier this year. Dont know if you can see in the pics but driver side of my truck on the lift was his "parts cabnet" a 1963 split window vett on blocks XD. Anyways somebody already tried on patching the wiring, Im going to replace most of it with an oem reproduced harness made custom for a 10si. The factory bundle is already been replaced for the rear lights and the oem from the starter downward is good enough to make minor repairs to. Everything else is getting gutted. Thanks for the info on the 3/4 ton axles, was wondering about weight rating (7/8ish ton was what I concluded). I will try to snag a pic of the column tomorow; have an original top half of a column from a cut up truck in idaho, was thinking I might build a rag joint type column out of it and get the nice 60s steering wheel back(4 spoke). Every one told me I was nuts for buying this thing and that I would never find any parts, but I havent had any trouble so far, more so figuring out what I actually need. it has a butt ton of stuff for me to do, so Ill update as I go. Absolutly no regrets, this thing is an absolute tank, with an incredible turning radius all be it only one direction(fix to come for that). I'm liking the color for a Gadston flag on the doors
