Re: Considering buying an International S-1800

First...be aware that this thing will NEVER see the high side of 10MPG!

What is the gear ratio & what is the tire size? Alternately, what RPM is it spinning at 60MPH? That is the vital information. A gear swap isn't that tough, unless the front axle is an oddball.

It's the gears...a 345 will push a 12' high box truck to 60 if geared properly.

And your F-100 has SERIOUS problems...that should top 20MPG, never mind 10!
