Thanks Ben. Next comes moving my other crane onto an International Crew cab... I need the whole back half of the Hino including drive axle, but front half of the International. May be a splice job.
Yes, the International has that problem
Still contemplating what to do and how to do it. The Hino engine is blown up and parts are so expensive I'd say it would be over $10000.00 for a good overhaul. I want the crew cab. International parts, used engines etc are cheap. The International differential is a light duty 2 speed. The Hino is a very heavy duty 2 speed Spicer Axle. The Hino will be scrap when the changes are done. On my phone now. More details later.
In Burma, every other truck is a Hino. Parts would be easy. Here, very few. That particular engine is not brought in by the importers and the only used engine was advertised by a confirmed fraud engine website on the internet, so I decided to get away from it. I want the large International crew cab for emergency sleeping quarters when arriving at a job late or leaving one late. The International engine is also known to be super reliable and before 1993 California doesn"t make me smog the truck. The International engine only has 146000 miles and should go up to 1,000,000...even less is ok. It was just a short range use service truck.
