Newbie in Naches Wa

Hello guys. My name is Ryan and I bought my first International last weekend. I have always had classic vehicles but this is my first International.

I just picked up a 1955 (or so the title says) R-162 dump bed. It shows 47K miles on the odometer and I was told I am the third owner. first owner was from new to about 2003 and the second was 2003 to last weekend who used it for a mobile dumpster for his construction company. It is running, driving, and dumping. It was even registered up until a month before I bought it.

I recently moved to the Yakima WA area from northern California for work and have purchased 10 acres to build a new house and shop on.

I have already spent hours reading on this forum and others to learn what I can about the truck before buying and I am excited to keep learning and contribute myself.


I will upload some pictures of the truck here shortly.

here she is loaded up on the trailer to come back from Clarkston to Naches:

the trailer was rated for 10K and weighs 2500 empty so I was a little over but she handled it just fine for the entire 200 miles.

here is the door tag with the model and stated that the orgiional motor was a BD264. I scraped the dirt and oil off the motor and confirmed it does still have the original BD264 with the original serial number so this was a good surprise vs the 240 the previous owner said it had.

Thanks for the pics and welcome to the site!

Looks like you've got a nice, straight truck there.

Welcome,
I know exactly where Naches is. Have hunted that area for years in the past. I also have a R series truck. Keep posting. I would be interested in the heater hose hook ups on the engine. Enjoy the ride.

Thanks for the welcome guys.
Dennis,
I will need to do something with the heater hoses soon. right now everytime the engine warms up I get steam coming out of the heater vents so I am assuming the heater core has a leak so I will need to fix that and make the heater fan work as it currently is not functioning.

Hi Ryan,
Somehow I missed your reply, sorry. Good luck with your project, looks like a good one to start with.
Curious how wide your bed is. My R150 doesn't have one, so I am looking or maybe have to build one. So that is the reason for the question, I would think yours would be the same as what I would need.
Have fun

Re: Newbie in Naches Wa

I will get you some measurements. I haven't measured it yet but I do know it is skinnier than a modern flatbed. If you end up building one let me know. I am not that far away and am pretty decent with metal fabrication.
