International Harvester TD5 Crawler Finally Running after 15 Years
This is a 1959 McCormick International TD5 crawler. The poor thing hasn't
really been running in about 15 years, but was stored inside or covered up
for most of that time. The engine was rebuilt about 10 years ago but never
ran. The injector pump and injectors were rebuilt about 5 years ago. The
main clutch and steering clutches were done, too, but it sat so long
everything rusted solid. It took me several weekends (and one new set of
steering clutch fibers) to get her moving again. The hydraulics are
finished now and all that's left to do is install the grader blade and
loosen up some seized pins!

hour to lower the tow hitch.
Part 1; Installing new muffler on a GM PD4106 Bus Conversion
Part 1; After installing a new, higher HP Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine, I
determined that the buses original muffler with it's 3.5" outlet is too
small. It was designed to be quiet, but it doesn't flow enough for this
new engine. Part 2 will show the new muffler installed!

This is just a short video of a walk around of my 1974 4070A International
Transtar and a cold start-up of the truck. The truck had not been started
for a few days and the temp is about 65 degrees the day of this video. The
ole truck starts just as easy @ 20 degrees as it does @ 80 degrees. It is
powered by an 8V71 Detroit Diesel or more famously known as the 318
Detroit, 13 speed Fuller, spring ride reyco suspension, no power steering.
I have a lot of fun in the summer months in this ole truck and is one of
many old Ih cabovers in my collection.

Serial Number Location Series V71 Detroit Diesel Engine
We have produced this video to help locate the Serial & Model Number on
6V71, 8V71, 12V71 & 16V71 Detroit Diesel 2 Cycle Engines. The Serial Number
is important because it gives the record of parts that were used to build
the engine when it left the factory.
