Heard about the forum from another scout owner. I told him i was having trouble finding a shop to work on my 1962 80 and he suggested here. I own to scouts a 1962 80 and 1978 800

Hello! I've owned and daily driven my '67 Travelette for about a year and absolutely love it! Was turned onto this thread when I ordered the disc brake conversion kit from IH Parts last week. My truck, Henrietta, is in great shape, but looking to make some upgrades, and diving into this forum seems like a great place to start!

New to the site. Located in GA just below Macon. I've felt alone down here by myself. Glad I found you.
Looking to restore my 68 Travelette 1200C. Right now, I have the wide 6 lug wheels with 16.5 tires. The rims can't be found out there and the 16.5 tires are becoming rare too. Would have to change out the spindles to a different lug pattern. Right now, I'm just scratching my head or something else.

I kept all of the original axles and spindles, had new wheels made from my old lock ring wheels. Then use the old centers and weld them into new 16X8 rims. I can use the stock hub cape too. Here is a link to my Travelette work post. About 1/2 way down on this link you'll find the wheels.

Hi,
I'm an oilfield worker in Alberta, father of 6. About 8 years ago I purchased a 1947 KB-1, which is an ongoing project but now has a SBC 327 in it. I just recently purchased a 1967 bus (Loadstar 1600 with an SV345) that I'm trying to get home so I can start working on it. It's just pure luck that the bus was an IH, I was actually contemplating trying to transplant a 7.3 diesel into it, but after some reading sounds like the SV345 is a solid engine and with a $1500 rebuild might last a long time.
