• 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.

I recently acquired a 68 1100c pickup witha 344 and automatic transmission. the previous owner has ran a fairly large gauge wire from the taillight straight to the starter. after crawling around underneath the pickup searching on the transmission for the NSS I was unsuccessfull. I'm at a loss what am I missing?

I can't tell anything from the pictures, however a heavy wire going from the starter to the back of the truck is usually going to an RV trailer plug. Some RV's do have backup lights, so a short in the RV plug might cause this.

That year of truck should have a Borg Warner 8, which IH referred to as a T-28 and listed as code 13028 on line setting tickets and service literature. It does not have an NSS mounted in the trans housing as does the Chrysler Torqueflite 727 units that IH used in later model year vehicles. The NSS for the BW8 is actually attached to the lower portion of the steering column and is actuated by your column mounted shifter. It is IH p/n 261902C91.
