• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

D Series Hydroboost/ Rear Disc Conversion


New member
Hello IH Community,

I am looking for information on converting a D series Travelette to hydroboost brakes. I am specifically working on a 1970 1200D. In addition to the hydroboost, I am swapping in a Chevy Dana 44 front axle with discs and I am looking for a rear disc kit for the IH Dana 60 rear. No, I do not NEED rear discs but I wouldn’t mind some added braking power. Also, I know that I could swap in a Corporate 14-bolt but I would like to keep the IH Dana 60 for now.

Anyone know what adapters I need to mount the hydroboost? And what make/model/year hydroboost would best fit this application?

Will any of the Ford or Dodge rear disc kits work on the IH Dana 60?

Thank you,

IH parts America, who also supports this forum, does have one complete hydro boost kit for the scout II's. No clue if it will fit the IH truck's. Best to call them up and find out.
