IHC Loadstars

A bit of history. My first experience with them was in 1969, in DaNang, VietNam. I was a US Navy Structural Firefighter and we used Loadstar chassis for triple combination pumpers. Tough trucks as we packed about 5 tons of hose and equiptment on them, and sailors drive like wildmen. Just couldn't break them.

Here is some information on the guages in the Loadstar. I am looking to get a tach for mine.

This link is also a good resource on the engines:

I'm toying with the idea of building a higher performance 345 with all the aftermarket scout stuff out there.
