If you contact an IC Bus or Navistar/International Truck dealer they can run the Line Setting Ticket for the chassis of your bus.

The database may or may not still have your chassis in the system.

The LST may still be on your bus. It was stuck on in one of several places and it still might be there.

One place to look would be on the hood. If you tilt the hood forward down by the hinge on the curb side you might find it stuck on there.

Or you may find it by looking on the kick panel to the left of the driver's left foot.

The LST will only tell you what was used in making the chassis for your bus. To find out more about your bus you need to let us know what kind of bus body you have.

IIRC that is on the firewall on the curbside just below where the hood rests.

Look on the hood itself just above the hinge on the curbside or on the kick panel to the left of the driver's left foot.

My parents purchased the bus 18 years ago and we stripped the seats to use it for a storage shed.
It hasn't been touched since.
Last week I put a battery in it and unhooked the fuel line and stuck the line in a small gas can poured a little gas in the carb cranked her over and she came to life! Did not expect that to happen!

those old International 345 and 390 engines were TROOPERS... they drink the gas but boy do they last and run!! the 345s were used in the Scout II's.. theres a decent following of scout II owners still so could be a good source of parts and info for that 345.. (most likely what you have)..

I rode to school on the international chassis in a couple different busses.. a 1979 Superior, and a 1979 Wayne..
