Welcome to OldIHC.org, the world’s largest web site specifically dedicated to the older IHC trucks. The Old International Harvester Truck Special Interest Group fosters the enjoyment and fun of restoring antique IHC trucks. Through the OLD IHC SIG, IHC truck restorers, owners and other interested parties can exchange information while maintaining the camaraderie and good fellowship of an on-line, Internet-based truck owners group.

How time flies.  It feels like it was just yesterday when I started OldIHC.  10 of the guys on the old Binder Bulletin forum decided that we needed a website of our own. Looking at the our traffic shows that we have had 1,260 page views last week. (Feb. 16, 2015 through March 3, 2015)  And it started with only 10 of us.

Today (March 4, 2015) I published the first version of the OldIHC droid app. I didn’t do this just for myself, I created it so that others who wanted to view the sites via the droid phone or tablet could.  Now, you have good access when you need some information on the fly.  You can download the droid app at https://play.google.com/store/search?q=OldIHC&c=apps

    I’m glad and happy to see that old K 5 on the top of the Site page. It ‘s a tradition for a site that is about OLD International trucks. I think that it should remain there as a symbol of the oldihc.

  2. Hay Y’all, Thanks for letting me join this site. For the past 7 months I’ve been working on a 47 kb2 pickup truck. I’ve spent all my free time on it, its all original except I’m missing the box for it. Its in pretty good shape, and I’ve found myself completely in love with it lol. I paid 300 bucks for it, the owner at the time didn’t know much about it,just wanted it gone.I’ve got everything unceased on it,and it’s turning over and backfiring,I can’t seem to get it to run tho. I’ve got good spark and fuel going into the carb, points and timing seem good. I was really hoping to get the old green diamond running again, but I think maybe something internal is wrong with it. I’ve been using the internet to learn about it and what to check for. So I decided to join this site, because from what I’ve read throughout these forums time and time again. You guys are the masters of the old stove bolts and old stuff in general,any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

    It sounds like to me with the information provided that the following problem may exist:
    1: The relationship between the camshaft (which opens and closes the intake and exhaust valves) and the crankshaft (moves the piston up and down the cylinders) is out of sync, this is known as jump timing and occurs when the chain that goes around the crank and cam gears stretches to an amount that allows the chain to jump a tooth or too.
    2; You didn’t state whether the backfire occurred thru the carb or if it was in the exhaust. This would be important to evaluate this possible problem It is possible that one or even both of the intake or exhaust values are not setting or part of the valves are burnt away causing an improper sealing of the combustion camber.
    3: If you are using the old sparkplug wires they maybe allowing the spark to jump from the intended plug wire to another wire therefor having that cylinder fire when one or both of it’s valves are open .
    4 this same effect could come from the dist. cap or rotor in the cap look for what can be best describe as white or gray lighting marks on the inside of the cap, on the rotor look at the where it slides on to the dist. shaft for same lighting marks also look at the tip you’ll notice two blocks of material where the metal contact leaves the rotor one may be broke or missing.

    Hope this helps you find your problem. Other suggestions in general would be to add a little automatic trans fluid into the engine oil and pour a small amount into the carb ( this is best done once you get the engine running but can be done with it not running) if you do it with out it running you’ll want to crank the engine several times to get the oil distributed thru out the upper cylinders and let it sit overnight, what this does is automatic trans fluid is super high cleaning as well as a fine lubricate as your motor has been sitting for a long time the ring maybe frozen and therefor won’t seal correctly. The trans fluid well allow them to free up and give you better compression.
    Good luck.
