Yeah.. a little work with a ball pein hammer should take care of it

I'm going to pull the hood off today also and try to get the majority of that dent out. I will have to fine tune it later with a hammer and dolly.

It's hard to get a good looking girl that close to an ugly old truck like this, so when it happens you have to take a picture to prove you didnt imagine it

Back to work...

I missed the exciting part of the game. Was working and we had a call.
Found out something interesting today about SAE bellhousings for your diesel
conversion. 1 is the bigger size 3 is smallest. The diameter of a 3 is not much bigger than an OEM bellhousing in a light duty truck. They are all round though.

The '56 is in its new home now... I loaded it up and took it to the new shop today, along with my buggy, machines and tool boxes.

It's nice to have it out of the driveway.. and it wont be subject to the weather anymore.



It's a little dark inside right now, were working on rewiring overhead strings of lights. Here it will sit until the shop is finished/usable.

Shops are never finished, so get started and the shop will find its way

I'm not any sort of 4x4 expert but I do have 4 of these international s-120s which I have kept original, 3 of them are parts trucks and through the years I have built up a network of contacts and resources for parts and would be happy to help save you some of the pain and suffering I have gone through working on them.

So far everything on my main truck is stock accept for a few modifications I have made to the eletrical system, If I wanted to lift it 3 or 4 inches, what do you think would be the best way to proceed? I have a few different ideas but I would greatly value the opinion of somone else who has worked with these trucks, thanks.

The cheapest and easiest route would be to have your stock spring packs rearched and rebushed. Make sure to check all of your chackles, hangers and brackets for wear and damage. They are kind of flimsy.

The best way to do it would be to replace your antiquated stock spring packs with some new, softer riding leafs. You will probably have to go with a wider spring and therefore have to change your shackles/hangers and spring pads to accomodate them. This option will be a lot of work, but should ride and flex better.

I still have my stock S-120 axles and stuff from the swap. Let me know if you need anything.

Thanks guys.. I have been pretty busy with the shop build and other things lately so it has been hard to find time to work on the truck. As soon as I find some time I will work on getting the front driveshaft built, front shocks on and start on the sheetmetal repair (floorboards and hurricane damage..)

Good eye

Yeah.. the whole interior floor is pretty bad. the pass side is paper thin up near the front. I will probably end up replacing the whole floor. I need to fabricate a trans cover also.

I'm also looking for a 10 bolt PTO to fit the transfer case if anyone knows where I can find one.

Yeah.. I think most of these trucks were used up in the Northwest. The majority of the ones I've seen for sale have all been in that part of the country. Mine came from Washington state.

Luckily the only major rust is the floorboards and part of the tailgate near the bottom. The bed is solid but looks like they used it to haul logs, the floor is beat up pretty bad.

Trying to seal a deal for a 6v53 Detroit Diesel with 5 speed trans and PTO out of a '77 GMC dumptruck right now. If I can get it for a decent price it may come home with me this weekend.

Wow! How big physically is that? The way it makes the trans look small, I'd guess it's pretty big. Is that for the pickup? Will it fit?

Yep.. it's for the '56. I took some preliminary measurments a while back and it should fit. I will more than likely have to redo the steering due to the width, but I was planning on that anyways. It is hard enough to turn as is with the 36's on it.. not to mention once I get this heavy bastard installed.

I was able to strike a deal with the guy, so I'm heading out later tonight to pick it up.
