I have an international C1600 4x4 which has not been used for about 15 years.

I am going to get the truck going and roadworthy over the next year. The brakes need doing. Can wheel cylinders, drum shoes and seals be purchased new?

Also, does a Perkins 6.354 or Phaser bolt up to the 4 speed original gearbox?

Thanks,

You can fit a Perk 354 to the 4 sp,but most go for a T34 with OD..........Ive done quite a few,but over 30 years ago,so the memory is hazy......,never reuse the 11 " clutch,it will slip .12" min IMHO............get the brake cylinders relined with stainless,and have them refit new bits,and get the shoes relined,if they need it,......You will probably find the Vh 90 booster is frozen too.....Also ,sump needs a bit of alteration,but you can get away with just jacking up the front axle a bit and fitting stops to the spacers at the same time......Although its surprising how long the sump lasts as a bump stop.

Thanks for the info.

Does the T34 marry up to the transfer case?

Thanks

I remember seeing somewhere a bloke used a Cummins 6Bt. Does anyone know how much work it was to have it fit up ok?

If you get a motor with a gearbox attched,its not too difficult..............although I think a 6Bt is too long for the space.................a Perk is a very short motor ...............one motor that will fit is the GM4/53.....but you still need a gearbox.

An LS would fit nice and the 4L60 can be mated to the transfer case via an adaptor.

I have thought about an LS as they are easy to get and not too expensive.
I guess I’ll just get it up and going and worry about swapping the engine out once it’s roadworthy.

That’s what really stopped the truck being used. Too gutless and thirsty!

Firing the 281 up on Sunday. As it’s been sitting for 15 years... I was going to squirt some WD40 or some oil down the plug holes and leave for a little before I try and start it. Is this all you would worry about doing before starting?
It’s been shedded the whole time.
