Hey group, Been a long time since I posted last. I've got this International L130 49-52 (not sure of the year.) 1ton. I've been thinking of putting in a dodge motor & drive train in it. Just wondering if anyone would know what might work?
What's goin on? I found a guy to do my fenders. He's probably gonna do the rest of the body work too. I picked up a Plymouth Gran Fury (mid 80's). Paid $400 for it. I'm gonna use the suspension and motor and some other stuff. Every thing is at my cousins shop so he can do some tear down and other work while I'm out on the road. Hopefully most of everything will be done by June or July.
Check here. Call Riff and tell him Steve from Indianapolis sent you. If he doesn't have one he may know where to get one. He may be able to set you up with fenders as well. Not positive he goes back that far but he may. I know of another place in AZ that may be able to help. I will have to find their info though.
Yea! I asked gearhead (webmaster) to get the sort order right on the forums, it worked! Thanks Gearhead!
I spoke with Ididit today, they pointed me to Vintage Air, and yeah, they got something that'll work. And they have a local distributor.
On the Ford IRS, Saturday, I went down to a friends place, he has two trucks in his shop he's put them in. One his '53 Ford PU, and an Econoline PU. The Econoline he put the one I originally had and chopped up the front mounts on. He'd taken a piece of 2x4 Square tubing, inserted the mount in the ends, and welded it to the top part of the sub-frame, where it goes over the differential flange. It pretty much puts it at the same level as the rear mount, nice and clean. The `53 he mounted one unmodified in. Both nice.
I'm rebuilding the Lincoln front end and found something (not to) interesting. You can't get just an upper ball joint for them, ya gotta buy the whole upper control arm. Lincoln want's $273 for it, Moog, only $63. hmm.... All together though it's a little over $200 for new bushings, tie rods, ball joints, etc. not to bad (I think) to rebuild the whole thing.
