I'm parting out an old IH Loadstar dump truck, gas powered v8. It has a Browning 4/4, I ran the truck and played with the gears. the Browning seems to work fine. I have ideas on using it myself, but would like to know what it's worth if I should sell it. Anyone know? Thanks. Dan

Reason: correcting the title
I Haven't seen or looked for tags or labels up under there. I do know that when I put the primary tranny in 1st and the Browning in 1st, it creeps pretty slow. Going through the range, It rather stalls in the tall gear, too high to start out with the front tranny in first.
I'll play with it some more before actually completely disabling the truck. Thanks for the input. Dan
It's on an International Loadstar. I'm guessing early 70s. No VIN, tags. builders plates, nothing. I don't know the engine size, other than it's a gas V8. The truck is a big heavy one, tandem rear and 20 inch rims. Note the cobbed on Mack rear suspension, axles. You can see that it originally had Hendrickson setup by the marks on the frame.
The 4/4 may have been a later mod too, as the mount for it is home made looking, with cutting torches edges. I'll post more later when I can get a good look at the Browning.
Anyones guess is as good as mine on the engine size. The firing order info stamped into the valve cover indicated it could be used on this V8 as well as IH 4 cylinder.
I have plans for the hoist, for sure! Also, I put some fluid into the power steering pump reservior, and the PS started working. I hope this pump can be adapted to my Ford C-700, it's PS doen't work, and MAN is it a bear to steer unless it's moving along.
Not sure yet. Could sell it, but I have a few ideas too. My brother put a Cummins 5.9 in his Ford F-250, plus one ton front wheels, hubs and a dually rear axle. The cummins has a 3 speed auto + OD, (as in Dodge) I wonder if this Spicer could have a practical application there. (I'm supposed to be getting that truck).
A friend told me I ought to hold on to the IH engine too, sez they can be worth something even as rebuild cores. Anybody know anything about that?
