The old International were good trucks no doubt about it. If you have the build sheet you shouldn't have a problem getting parts, With out it it could be a problem. I had a 68 1700 Load Star and I didn't have any problem getting wheel cylinders or brake shoes for it(it had Rockwell Axles). A good parts man can find them. The days of a goose neck and a 1ton are about over. I had to pass on a IH 1700 single Axel city tractor 345 5&2 that I wanted to pull my goose neck trailer with and would have handled it mighty fine. The funny thing was when I checked on insurance for the IH (GVW of 32000lbs) was cheaper than my 1ton. He said 26000 to 43000 is considered a medium duty truck and is cheaper than a light duty and heavy duty trucks, Go Figure! Bandit

That is good to know. Looking at the generic specs the 1700 is rated for just about where I want to be. I"m thinking of going to a 35" tandem axle with dual wheels which ought to give me a payload towards 15000lbs. I like the looks of the old IH trucks and that is what my tractors are so it ought to fit well. It currently has a 304 and I"ve no idea what the transmission is. It also has hydraulic brakes. Many thanks, Sam
