Suspension Feedback

Hi guys, I have a 4x4 truck (an International D1310 - circa 1973) which runs 8.25x16 14ply rubber. It has spilt rims all round, and has tubes. I am looking for a reliable h/duty air compressor that will easily inflate the tubes, so don't need a huge boost of air to set the bead on rims. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Reply via email is great.

I think you only need a huge boost of air to seat tubeless tyres, in your case wouldn't the tubes be doing this job? You could use a hand pump -:)

I use a typhoon,,, see this link,,,

CAUTION mine was 3 times this price 3 years ago,, make sure it's not a cheaper version that looks the same. Check reputable 4WD suppliers.

Mikee5 have you ever put 70psi in these tyres with hand pump,,, might be ok for 20 year old footy player in his prime and good old fashioned pump,,, but not me,,, never again

cheers Baz

Something like this

and an air tank. For a air tank you could use a truck air tank as well.

Hi all, WOW 3 replies so soon!
1) Hand pump - not for this little black (65 year old) duck! Will look into the various options mentioned in your reponses.
2) normal pressure is 65 - 75 psi, so will need a
powered unit.
3) do I really need a tank as they are tubed tyres, and most compressors cycle quite quickly.
So, for now, thanks and keep em coming.
Mike

Hi stumpytwo, I am sure that was the vehicle we used in the Army...what have you done to help in the steering department I can remember if you hit a pot hole the steering wheel went berserk, bloody rip your arms off. But could they go places, was the same motor as we used in the 6x6 Inter with out the twin carbs and headers.

Hi Bruce, Stumpy2 is an Inter D1310M - originally with a straight six 318 and carb (petrol); 2 owners ago needed more oomph: fitted a Navistar 6.9litre diesel V8, put in a Ford 5 speed, and lifted the whole lot up quite a bit. So it is now a 4x4 with serious ground clearance.
Steering is still original (though recently installed a 2nd hand steering box as original was like stirring a rice pudding) does not have power steering - may look into that when I get original box reconned.- believe original is a Ford D400, or 4000 - an English steering box?
Have not had it off road yet - still fitting out the motor home part and looking to put in much heavier duty clutch soon. Then off we go.
And yes we have had strangers come up to us telling us they went to school in ''one of those'' it was originally a country Qld school bus. And yes the forces did use them, as did many freight carriers used the Metro version - slab sides, no windows and a sliding door to get in and out.
Cheers for now, sorry can't upload any pics this way, but send me an email and I'll send some pics that way. toozoff@hotmail.com
Mike.

Bruce, forward Mike's photo's on to me too please.

Mike as a dirt magnet many years ago, my folks dragged me round the countryside in a couple of old AB110's. You will be getting lookers and comments where ever you go with that meaty burble eminating from that beasty rig. Half your luck.

Regards, Trevor.
