K and KB's at Daytona Turkey Run

At the Daytona Turkey Run at the Speedway there was a few K and KB's there to represent IH. There was a nice R model too with an old Harley in the back. Here are a few photos, enjoy. Well I guess my photos are too big to directly upload, so I will try something else.

This was in the cars for sale, a cool chopped S series, I didn't ask the price.

Re: K and KB's at Daytona Turkey Run

The bad news of my trip back home, I was 36 miles away from my daughters house in Asheville, NC and lost the outer front wheel bearing on my truck. I was left stuck on the side of I-26, called AAA for a roll-back and had her dropped off at my daughter's. Swiped her car and drove 563 miles home to get my Dodge and the trailer. Made a 1206 mile round trip to haul her car back to her and fetch Rusty. When I got it back to my shop and tore it down, I now have to replace the spindles and rotors because the driver's side got wasted. Oh well, all in the name of fun. All said and done I drove over 3500 miles on my trip, now back to work for a needed rest, LOL

Bill, That was quite the trip. :shock: Let us know if there is anything we need to look out for on our own trucks. :? If the spindles are as old as the truck, well we all get a little broken down as we age. ;)

Re: K and KB's at Daytona Turkey Run

Thanks Lloyd, it was just junk Chinese bearings, no warning growl they just imploded, two loud bangs, a squeal then the wheel started shaking, no brakes, just coasted to the side on the parking brake. The outfit I got the IFS from loaded it up with the cheapest parts they could get. When I checked the other side, the bearing cages were rusted while still coated in grease, they were well lubed before the trip. I figure the rollers had very little hardfacing and just exploded. I ordered all new spindles, rotors, bearings and seals from an American manufacturer, today.

Are you sure you weren't driving in the surf for fun? That'll rust things up in a hurry!
