Post Ed's 64 IH 1 ton body swap
Time to swap the beat up body on my truck, found one in a self serve wrecking yard last May. It's at the sand blaster now.

Started taking the cab apart to get ready for the new one to go on.
Image

Image

Door hinge bolts, only one broke off out of eight removed so far.
Image

Fender mounting.
Image

I believe this damage was done by the tree that fell on it.
Image

Image

Wanted to have a reference for where I have all my doodads.

How excited were you to find one of those in the junkyard? The new one is rusty but it doesn't look terminal. Any other upgrades, mods or do-overs planned while things are apart?

Post Re: Ed's 64 IH 1 ton body swap
Excited enough to know that I needed to jump on it, especially with the condition it's in. The floorboards are surface rust, the only deep rust I saw was two small spots, one on each side of the front of the cab under the hood when closed. The old one is a lot worse in those same spots.

Will be reinforcing the cab in spots I already know to be problem areas, the back cab mounts and the back of the door jambs crack under the pressure of flexing on the trail. The main thing will be to make everything functional again, the doors don't close and stay closed very well, the windshield opening is damaged and leaks.

Having everything apart will mean it's serviceable too, won't be 50 years of rust to fight. I will be putting new pins in the door hinges, mine are sloppy. On the new cab two hinge pins were already broken, I found a source for new pins and already started drilling out the old ones.

Nice, sounds like a good project, and like you said a great time to address other things when the drivetrain is easily accessible.

Yeah, I plan on cleaning it and looking everything over good. There will be areas I can't see otherwise, I plan on taking pictures of the dual transmission set up too. Right now the doors and fenders are off of both sides, will start taking the stuff off the front of the cab tomorrow.

Will be able to clean and work on the frame easier now.
Image

Image

Removed steering column.
Image

Removed parking brake.
Image

Image

This shows what I had to do to accommodate the 5 speed, the tc shifter originally came out of the round hole in the side. There wasn't room to do that with the wider transmission, so I made a hole and brought it through the floor.
Image

Since the new cab is 2wd I will reference these pictures to make this hole.
Image

This shows how the elongated hole had to be lengthened to allow for the second transmission.
Image

Image

I am going to add plate to the frame where the steering box mounts, this will be much easier now.

Looks like there's some frame repair in your future! What motor is in there? IH? 345? For some reason I thought you had a SBC in it but the port spacing is wrong on the exhaust manifold (among other things).

Yes a couple cracks in the front of the frame, not too bad.

345, I'm not a fan of swapping in non IH stuff.

Yeah, 345 doesn't look anything like a 350 .
