• 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.

Hi! I have had classic vehicles my whole life but I just aquired my first IH. I bought it from a fellow in Richmond a couple days ago. I work for calfire during the summer and will be logging the next couple winters. I was looking for a vehicle to use as my "logging truck" as I didn't want to beat up my daily driver Tacoma. I had no idea what I was going to find when I started looking for a 4x4 pickup. I was looking for something classic and stumbled upon dodges and Ford's but as soon as I saw the 1210 I knew that it was the one. I've got a few things to address before winter and I will try my best to document it. Thanks!

Just bought my first Scout!
1975 Scout 2 w 392.
Looking to buy new front and rear seats(have some in mind) but want to get an estimate on reupholstering the old seats before I pull the trigger. Any local recommendations

Hello,

I have a 1969 IH 1200D with the 392 in it for about a year now. I was referred to this site by a friend of mine. I live in the San Jose area. Are there any local people around here? I don’t get to see too many IH trucks. I’d certainly like to meet up for an event with other IH enthusiasts and learn more about the IH brand.

So far I’ve had very little issues with my truck. A few gaskets needed to be replaced and a new gas tank. But otherwise this thing runs like a top.

Welcome. Nice truck. Looks fairly solid. There are a few IH owners in san Jose, Fremont, and Hayward. I'm up in Richmond, Ca. Check out the BABS club section in this forum. For the gaskets, along with your other IH needs, IH Parts America, who run this forum, has what you need. There's a link to the store at the top of this page. Who knows, we may meet in passing sometime
