Antique Power did a spread on them a few years back. Most InterContinental's didn't get too far from where they were built. Never found any in this part of the country.

Thanks for that info. Apparently most were for export, so not actively marketed in the US? I wonder if the builders tried to keep building after the first contract was fulfilled, or did they try to sell in the US as well to keep production going.

Back end is made by Timken. Silverking and Sheppard also used as well as the Ck 30. The F162 was also used for Dc welders. Easy to rebuild and parts not pricey.

I’ve read it was Timken, I have a shepherd and it is exactly the same I just used a cockshutt 30 rearend for a few parts. That is true I have a 1953 and a 1956 Lincoln 200 with the same engine I’m sure it was used in plenty of other applications too.
