The Dickinson County Historical Society (Kansas) has 1923 IHC truck Model S. That we have pulled out of long term storage and are trying to get back into running condition.  We are in need of some parts. Head gaskets, headlights, speedometer, owner's manual so on. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Great looking truck. Please keep us posted on your progress. Try this site for people in the know on pre-1940 IHC. I think they even have some manuals for the S and some links to find parts. Thanks in advance for sharing your adventure with us. https://vihtr.com/

I was able to join the IHC pre-40 truck Facebook page. 

Have had very good response. 

One of the issues we are having was inconsistent spark.

We believe that two issues that could be causing this . The coil is going bad or the rotor is so pitted that it's not making good contact.

Glad to hear you are finding help. Yes that rotor could be a problem. Also the grime built up inside the distributor may be adding to the problem.

In cleaning the points and the tip of the rotor don't forget the spark plug wire contacts both inside and outside the dist cap...

And if you have one of the Lycoming motors, probably K or KB, treat it carefully; Lyc parts, reportedly, are quite difficutl to find...

Nash34,  your IHC truck should have a REMY system on it.   Correct distributor is a REMY  366X.    Also the big Delco book does not list the S model in 1923 but rather in 1924.   If you have that dist, I have parts for it also
