International AR-110 Information
27.05.2009 at 19:57:35
 
Can someone please help me with some info, I recently have come into possession of a international AR- 110 flat bed truck.
My intention is to resore it, but I would love to no if any one can tell me any thing about this truck, including the year of manufacture.
Where I can source parts for it would also be helpful.

The AR was produced between 1952 and 1955.  By Mid 1955 they had a new cab with a one-piece windscreen.  

Mechanical parts were used by International for years until the late 1970's so not that hard to find as later models will often fit (eg distributor - the original dizzy caps are almost impossible but a later 6-cylinder distributor will fit and the caps are easy to get)

Body wise parts turn up on eBay and I have also got them at Bendigo Swap Meet.  May I suggest you join a club as their members will normally help fellow members out.

The first six letters/digits of the engine number will tell you the sort of motor eg ASD220 means Australian Silver Diamond of 220 cubic inches.  SD220 is the Americam equivalent.  


All silver diamonds need to have their tappet adjustments at specs or they will cause exhaust valves to burn out. I can email you a scan of the page from the manual. if you are interested pm me your email address.  

The manuals cover all AL/AR series trucks and pop up on eBay every couple of months at prices ranging from $50 to $300.

I hope that starts you off

I was told that Clark Rubber had them,  A friend also recognised the chrome runners between the quarter vent and side windows as being the same as his mum's HQ monaro (Whether they are identical or just append to be similar I don't know

Guys
Scotts old auto rubber can only supply one of the door rubbers and Clarke rubber in Perth only stocks new car rubber.

Any other Australian suppliers would be appreciated.

Also, can someone who has an AR-110 make an imprint of the AR-110 Series emblem on the side of the vehicle and send it to me so that I can make up two new emblems.

When I have made imprints I cover the emblem with glad wrap and press premixed body filler over the emblem and leave in place until the filler sets. When dry you can easily remove the filler because the glad wrap lets go.

If the emblem is still on the vehicle you need to contain the filler in a container such as a cut down toilet roll and keep the container firmly pressed against the car body until the filler sets. I wedge a piece of wood or similar against the toilet roll to stop it moving.

My address is 6 Lincoln Road Morley. Perth WA 6062

Thanks
Graham

I bought some other rubbers from Restoration Specialties in the USA when the dollar was a bit healthier. They had rubbers for the pop up front vent etc. They also do repro gloveboxes.

I have a copy of the Restoration Specialties catalogue which doesn't have two of the rubber profiles that I require and have just received some information from John's Classic Auto Replacements in Tasmania that looks promising.

That sounds promising. May need to look into the same thing in the distant future. Had a look around my AR120, no headlight rings. As for the badges, I can only do an  AL110 mould.If you are looking for the INTERNATIONAL badges, there are 2 on Ebay in townsville at the moment.

I have some headlight trim rings in the  warzone called my shed from when I bought a new grill panel.  They are covered in crappy red paint and I don't thnk there is any chrome underneath but I have never looked.  

If anybody needs them to finish a project then let me know via PM

Coupeute - thanks for the heads up re the International badges but I am looking for the AR-110 badges. I might have tracked some down in Tasmania and if that doesn't come off, I will see if you can supply a AL 110 mould which would be easy to change to AR 110. I will get back to you on this.  Smiley

Pbaro - have sent you a PM re the trim rings  Smiley

Good for you, from the photo in the restored cars mag it looked good for the asking price. The other inter trucks there looked a bit rough.  All the best with the resto. Dave
