Sorry I didn't make that clear. PU-8 is the title to the International Harvester publication that covers the UD-6 engine. PU-8 stands for Power Unit #8 and is the call letters that you would order that specific manual with.

PU-8 would be the earliest printing of the manual,
PU-8B would be the second printing,
PU-8C the third printing etc.

As you move further down the revision letter list more features change in the book. Could be as simple as a bearing or bolt change all the way up to a crank, head or block change to increase metal thickness for strength or the material used for the piece part.

Yes . Thanks for the advice! Any idea on the model of the roller itself ? I could really do with a manual for it .

So my engine manual arrived yesterday. Iím compiling a list of parts I need . Any sources or ideas appreciated. Living in Ireland the postage costs are horrendous. Iím hoping to get them shipped to a friends in Florida and then try to get a better deal on shipping them all together. What Iíve identified so far are
A head gasket , magneto and distributor, generator or dynamo as we know them over here , a regulator and a starter motor. Maybe you guys have some ideas on where I might start to look for I guess refurbished parts . I have found a magneto on eBay . But not bought it yet in case I can get a deal on a lot of the stuff together. Is eBay best in America or should I be looking on a more specialist site ? Also still looking to identify the roller itself . Any help or ideas much appreciated.

Hi
Hope itís ok to bump this thread up again . Still have not identified what roller it is or found any parts . Contacted Steiner tractor parts who had no info on the engine based on the serial number .
