New member - 86 International S1800 9.0

Just came across this web-site, kudos to whoever thought it up. I have been in the process of converting my "white whale" only for a short time, but things are coming along smoothly. Getting a lot of good ideas from reading all the various posts.

If anyone needs a service manual for an International Bus with a 9.0 and AT545 tranny (not a real popular combo judging from several posts I've read here) I have a service/operator manual in pdf format that is about 17 megs in size. It covers anything and everything about this vehicle (from a total rebuild to fixing the fiberglass). If you want it, and your email server can handle a 17 meg file, let me know and I'll ship it out. It's acutally a military manual for a firetruck of some sorts but its all the same in the end.

I have been pleased with my 9.0, good mileage for a diesel and it has enough get-up and go for me to cruise at 60 on the highways. This was a previous US Navy bus, so I don't think they did any mods on it. I have all the maintenace records since she was a pup and with only 82K miles for $1300 bucks, I think I got a good deal.

Looking forward to being a part of the board.

Richard (Moby - the white whale) You'll see what I mean when I post some pics.

Service Manual

Hey, Moby!

I'd sure be interested in having that manual! I'm about to buy a 1985 IHC 9.0/AT545 (if I can get the insurance to come together.) My e-mail is cevonk(atsignhere)aol.com Thanks for offering!

Some questions for you:

How many seats is your bus? What kind of mileage are you getting with that combination so far? What is your top speed?

Welcome, Moby!

I'd like a copy, too! I don't have a diesel, but a lot of the other stuff may apply to my '82 International.

My e-mail address is: mailto:griffgrumbein@yahoo.com

Thanx a bunch!

Sounds like a great deal on the bus. I personally like the 9.0 it is not the most powerful engine but it sure is good on fuel.

Hey there Moby! We are getting close to finishing our build and I have scoured the net for a manual to no avail and then I ran across your page. Unfortunately this link you have posted to the manual no longer works. Any chance I could get the file?
