Title: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Mick_Marsh on July 15, 2012, 11:31:48 PM
Introducing 170-862

I've been looking at Inters for a little while now. I like the simple, agriculturalness of them.
I didn't really want to buy one at this point in time. Nowhere to put it.
A fellow, not too far from me, advertised one on another forum. I emailed the seller offering to post up photo's for him. When I saw the photo's I thought it was quite a nice looking truck, reasonably original and almost complete.

(http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w406/mick_marsh_AULRO/Inter/DSC_0747.jpg)
(http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w406/mick_marsh_AULRO/Inter/DSC_0746.jpg)

About a month later, the seller emailed me. Apparently I was the only one showing any interest in it. Well, this Inter clearly needed saving. Well, this was a big thing for me and I clearly needed help, so it was off to see Alien. After the Series III saga, I'm surprised Mrs Alien still lets me in the house. Alien was particularly enthusiastic despite Mrs Alien stipulating "It's not parking here."

So then we went down to look at the truck.
It was certainly original and almost complete. We took it for a spin. It drove quite well but had no brakes. Alien by this stage was getting quite interested in it. I was also interested in it and we (the seller and myself) agreed on a price.
So, probably the worst kept secret, I bought myself an Inter.

Well, last Saturday Alien and I went to pick it up. A big thanks to Alien for this because I would have found the task nearly impossible. And thanks to Cookey who sent me a spare brake booster diaphragm just in case. It drove very well to where I was thinking it was going to be stored temporarily.

I had no idea how short a time "temporarily" was. Alien has stolen it.

Let me elaborate.

I drove to Riddells Creek today. In the hybrid.  There is a very nice fellow there who has lots of Landrovers. He and some mates used to go to the army auctions and buy whatever was going. Well, he had some hood bows he didn't know what they were from. "I think they're from an Inter" I said. "You can have them" he said. So Nigel and I (Nigel, a non-Landrover friend, wanted to come along for the drive) went to collect the hood bows. The nice fellow from Riddels Creek gave us a tour of his collection, we loaded the bows and headed for home. Now, Nigel was unimpressed when I told him I had bought the truck and on the way home I confessed I didn't know why I bought it.
So, on the way back, I drove past where it was parked last night AND IT WAS GONE!
Driving around to the back gate, there was Alien, locking the gates and about to drive it to his place.
He was sprung.

Alien has quite taken to, and is very enthusiastic about, the truck. I suspect he will be wanting to buy it off me soon. If Mrs Alien gives permission.

Oh, by the way, Nigel was very impressed with the truck. He reckons he knows why I bought it and has promised to explain it to me one day. He even wanted Alien to drive it round to the tennis club so we could show it to Nigel's wife. What the!

And the hood bows fitted.

So, now it is sitting in Aliens driveway, with the Series III a certain person should buy to drop a whopping great V8 in. Mrs Alien is all smiles and offered me a cuppa. Welcome not worn out there, yet. All is right with the world.

Now on to the serious stuff. What to do from here?
I would like to get it on to a club permit ASAP so it needs a roadworthy. All advice is gratefully received
- The rust in the cab needs to be fixed. Any recommendations?
- The seats need fixing. I think a local motor trimmer can do that
- New windscreen glass. A fellow in Ballarat can do that. I know one who did a good job on the Landy and Mercs.
- I need a shear pin for the winch and perhaps a couple of spares. Anyone know where to get these?
- 12.00x20 bar treads need to be sourced. I have a local tyre dealer looking into this but any leads will be helpful.
- The front brakes are binding. It appears the adjuster may be adjusting up when they're applied.
- Drivers side door window to be sourced. Anyone know where there are some available?
- Drivers side quarter vent window to be sourced. Anyone know where there are some available?
- Two hinges for the roof hatch to be sourced. Anyone know where there are some available?
- The lights need sorting out. Half of them don't work. I can fault find that. Probably just blown globes.
- The indicator switch needs a good clean and check.
- The carby needs a good clean. Plugs and points replaced too.
- Seat belts need replacing
- Two or three hood bows to be sourced. Anyone know where there are some available?
- Canvas canopy to be sourced. Anyone know where I can get one made?

This list will grow

All the pictures I have taken are here. The last ten are from yesterday.

I thought they should be aware of what is being registered through their club.

Hi Mick,
what a great looking truck!!   You are very fortunate that it is so complete and hasn't been modified or messed around with.
The rust issues don't look all that bad (even remembering that rust is almost much worse than first appears). They are pretty tough panels so don't be afraid to take to them with a grinder and clean them up, that's the first step. Cut out any rusted (holed) sections, make up some new sections and weld them in. Anyone competent with an oxy torch should be able to do this. Finally, clean up the welds, apply just enough filler to obtain a nice smooth finish, prime and paint.

The 1200x20 bar treads can be both hard to find and expensive. The later NATO pattern radials (Mack) are a great alternative. They are also much safer to drive on. Used ones are often on E-bay at less than $100 each. (I recently bought 8 complete with tubes and rust bands for $300)

The front brakes binding may be due to rust in the drums or sticking wheel cylinders (not returning fully). I replaced all cylinders on my Mk3, cleaned the drums with emery paper, re-adjusted all shoes, and the brakes are now excellent.

I can possibly help out with the 1/4 vent and door windows. I use a Unimog canvas on my truck. Fits as per photo's without any modification. Check out Cookeys Shed.

Regards,
Cookey

A thanks from me to Mick for letting me play with him on this project.

More for the wish list...
Dimension for the passenger seat base wanted.
The base of the seat has a clip so assume a seat clips off when using the roof hatch.

What do folk do for wiper blades, needs two.



And a few quetions for those in the know...
Is the rocker cover gasget a cork job?
If so hopfully it'll come of as one to do the tappets.

How is the winch cable suppose to be attached at the front for traviling and when rear winching?






Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Mick_Marsh on July 16, 2012, 08:55:49 PM
I think Melton Autobarn has the wiper blades in stock. They're similar to vintage car wiper blades.
I'll pick some up on the weekend.

Oh, another thing on the wish list, a horndraulic trailer.
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Alien on July 16, 2012, 09:00:47 PM
The winch cable normally travels in the front position and is unlaid if you need to winch from the rear.

The usual practice is to tie a cord through the end and onto the other side of the brush guard.  This way if you accidently engage the winch the cord will snap and the cable winch through.  If you use a chain you are likely to break a sheer pin in the winch mechanism.

There is no hook at the end of the cable just the eye.
Could you explain the unlaying please.
My thoughts where  the cable would be shakled of to a point at the front a rear pull of 2->1 would be done via a snatch block.
Or does the cable get feed out the rear for a 1->1 pull?


Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Mick_Marsh on July 16, 2012, 09:19:47 PM
I thought the winch was 1:1 out the back and it was fed round the pulley just to bring it out the front.
There is a diagram in the book.

Oh, yes. I forgot. Thanks for the book John, if you're on this forum.

Update:
I've booked in for a Heavy Rigid non synchromesh course.
I'll legally be able to drive the thing from September (assuming I pass, of course).

Post by: cookey on July 21, 2012, 06:56:54 PM
Hi Mick,

in NSW you only require a Light Rigid (LR) class licence to drive a Mk3 (up to 8 tonnes GVM).

This licence also allows you to tow a trailer of up to 9 tonnes GTM.

The Mk3 does not have a non-synchro gearbox, only the F1/F2 (6x6) had the crash box.

Good luck with your test.

Thanks for the information ree the winch, I think I've got it worked out now :)

Droped the rear brake drums off via the hub bearings as the drums wouldn't move off the hub >:(
One wheel bearing set was freshly greased, the other very little and all dry.
We found a small splined shaft that had been twisted to shear point, I think it's an axle end.

Rear brakes are off, the expander and adjuster units will be cleaned and re-greased before it all goes back together.
The wheel cylinders have been removed for refurbishing,they will go with the front ones and the master cylinder when removed.
Brake shoes look hardly used so they can go back on keeping all the adjustments for the bell cranks ect..

The owner (who didn't want to get his hands dirty :P) started on the brake/tail light issues.
I think he has more patience for this fidily work than me :D

A bit more looking at the seat revealed something interesting.
The base of the drivers seat is held on with TEC screws ???
It has a clip at the front and one dowel pin and a spare hole the same size.
We think they line up for the top of the left seat, looks like we need to make up a drivers base now.

(Time to extract myself from the couch and go play with the grease, cheers)

The passenger side seat was originally set up to remove the seat cushion, and then stand on the seat base to use the roof cupola, I have seen later models including the 6x6's where they did away with the removable cushion and seat was fixed, there is a bloke on the sth west coast in vic who has the fixed cushions nos ex army stores for sale. If you are interested PM me and I will dig up his phone no.

G'day Mick

My guess is that they were cut out so that the indicators can be seen whilst the tailgate is in the 'dropped down' position.

Heres a photo of another Mk3/4 in a shed on a farm. Same cutouts.

Thanks for that Tommy.

The next tasks I have been assigned is to drop off the wheel brake cylinders for refurbishment. That's Saturdays job. I plan to swing by Ballarat and organise some protec paint as well. Will you be home, Scott?

I also have to get the headlights re-silvered. Does anyone know how to get them apart?

The axle end was on the rear of the truck when Mick and I picked it up, we didn't know at the time what it was from.

For the axle nuts I have borrowed a tube spanner.
One of the fellows I work with had a butterbox of his own and bought this for himself.
Stampings are..IH symbol(he bought it genuine), 29230HB.
The nuts are close to 3 1/4 inch and the tube spanner is about 1/8 inch bigger(although not an exact hex).

re your last question, it is the holder for your trouble / wander light. you might still be able to source brake pedal rubbers from old international dealers like Taigs, the hole in floor shown on photo doesn't have a rubber grommet, it is just covered by floor rubber, Geoff at Apollo Bay has some NOS if you need them, I haven't been able to source the rubber grommet which goes in the large floor drain hole at rear of floors.

Mick,

I think these catches are similar to the Landrover type (and the Champ jerrycan bracket) and they appear for sale on the Landrover UK ebay site occasionally, though there must be plenty of them about here in Oz.

Quick update.

I had a new rear brake line made up. I picked it up today.
It's the one that goes around the rear diff.

I also cleaned out most of the rats nest behind the switch panel. Dried rat urine is all over the switches.
I was going to wash it out with water, then contact cleaner, then a protective coat of silicone spray once dry.
Comments please?

Thanks Diana.

Had fun with it on Saturday. Looked at the winch.
The shear pin was broken. It wasn't a shear pin. It was a ground down metric bolt.
Whilst talking shear pins, I'm going to use another bolt. What grade would people recommend and why?

Anyway, the winch. I wanted to re-spool it so we wound it out. It's slow. The air actuator wasn't working (as we discovered later )  so we had Mrs. Alien in the Disco dragging the cable out.
The cable is long. When Mrs Alien was almost up to the neighbour over the roads front door, we put a snatch block on it, doubling the cable over, and continued unspooling.
When it was almost out, we discovered the faulty actuator.
We spooled it back in. It looks much more respectable now now that the cable is not wrapped around the front bumper half a dozen times.
I can hardly wait when we use it in anger in the forest. Can you get big tree protectors?
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Mick_Marsh on September 17, 2012, 07:41:25 PM
The cable spooled in fine. The faulty actuator prevented the drum from unlocking so we had to unspool it with the motor driving the drum.
The cable was well greased. At least the length closest to the drum was.

Many thanks to Alien, the brakes have been refurbished. There is no fluid in the system so I have bought some DOT5 silicone brake fluid.
I don't know if anyone has followed the thread on the other forum, but, will I be making a mistake using this in the braking system or do I have the blessing of all?
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Mick_Marsh on September 19, 2012, 02:07:33 PM
No idea. That's why I'm asking.
Ron rekons that is bunk. It works well in his 101.
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Alien on September 19, 2012, 06:24:45 PM
The major reason to use DOT 5 fluids is the high temperature rating 500 deg F, however I doubt you are going in the V8 supercar series in a Mk3.

"If silicone is introduced into an older brake system, the silicone will latch unto the sludge generated by gradual component deterioration and create a gelatin like goop which will attract more crud and eventually plug up metering orifices or cause pistons to stick."   

DOT3 and DOT4 will absorb moisture over time and therefore require fluid exchanges.  Silicon fluid doesn't absorb water which may be an advantage until water gets in and then it will not absorb but remain as a globule sinking to the lowest point of the brake system rusting pistons etc.

Of interest "The only major user of silicone is the US Army. It has recently asked the SAE about a procedure for converting from silicon back to DOT 3-4."

 from: http://importnut.net/brakefluid.htm (http://importnut.net/brakefluid.htm)
In referance to Diana's second paragraph I doubt there would any sludge as this truck sits now.
Thanks to Mick's running around...
Refurbished wheel cylinders.
NOS refurbished master cylinder/booster assey fitted(New ruber to booster, master striped,inspected and re-assembled).
New rubber lines X3 after blowing steel pipes out with compresed air.
New RHR steel pipe also(from "T" to wheel cylinder).

In addition to the above we cleaned and greased all the adjusters and expander units.
Brake shoes where hardly worn but some of the bell cranks needed freeing up.

I would stick with the dot4 Mick, because the other disadvantage of silicon fluid is the price of it and the difficulty in finding some, when you need it after an emergency repair in the middle of nowhere,

Thanks for the advice Charlie.
I was surprised how reasonably priced silicone fluid is. It was easy to find. Plenty in stock. The salesman didn't bat an eyelid when I said "Five bottles please." All five bottles were sitting in front of me within a minute. All this within the hour I had for lunch. Tyres won't be here before Christmas. Hope I don't get a puncture.
In reality, this vehicle will never be in the middle of nowhere. I couldn't afford the fuel. If there is a breakdown, with five bottles of the stuff, I think if I have a brake fluid supply problem it would be the least of my problems.

Good-oh then, about the price and availability! :D

Let us know how you get on with it Mick and thanks for letting me know,

I was just thinking about the shear pins.

Try contacting Allen Mulder (Red Rocket) in Qld, I'm sure he had some a couple of years ago.

Diana
Allen got back to me. He just ground down a bolt. The broken shear pin that was removed from this winch was just a ground down bolt. It seems everybody just grinds bolts.
What grade bolt should I be grinding down?
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Chazza on September 27, 2012, 07:55:36 AM
The original shear pins had a hex-head with a thread close to the head and a plain shank below that, which did the shearing.

I think it would be wise to contact the manufacturers of the winch, or to consult a mechanical engineer, so that they can calculate the shear strength, because the pin must shear before anything else in the system does. The thought of the rope breaking terrifies me!

Well, after two days of driving around the industrial areas of Melbourne, I think I have finally tracked down someone who is prepared to make hood bows / tarp supports for the Inter.
It was a right pain. The manufacturing industry in Melbourne must be going gangbusters. There are a lot of businesses out there who don't want work.
Title: Re: International Mk3, ARN 170-862
Post by: Chazza on October 10, 2012, 09:08:48 AM
Good work Diana!

Another way to test hardness is to make a Schlor schleroscope, which is a glass or plastic tube about 6mm in diameter secured to a ruler and placed vertically over the test piece. Drop a steel ball down the tube and observe how high it bounces on the ruler scale. The test pieces should be flat and smooth to obtain an accurate comparison and the ball round and polished.

Your work probably has some useful tube you can borrow :D,

Just had a thought - I have a lathe; if you can send me a sketch showing the dimensions of the shear-pin, I can make some for  those who want them.

Information I will need is; the grade of bolt; thread size and form (UNC, etc); distance across the flats; length.

I can make a jig and waist the bolts into a shear-pin and buy the bolts over here,

I've had to have some hood bows made up.
One guy quoted $600 each. This guy did an excellent job at bending the tube. So far, $600 for ten.
I still have to weld on tie loops, paint and cut to length but I think a good job so far.

The canopy from Red Rocket should be arriving soon.
