Default International Harvester LA LB

hey everyone, i'm on my third/fourth hit and miss restoration right now. Both international. One i know is an international LA. The other has no tag or head OR mag . the one without a head however does have the throttle lever with the detent positions on the side cover, any info on when they came out with that? But to get to my real question, does anyone have any leads as to where i can find myself the appropriate head and mag, maybe even a valve cover? I can't find those parts on hitnmiss enterprises or enginads. thanks!

Also, might be a dumb question but are the LA and LB heads interchangable? And also to clarify i know these aren't "hit and miss", they are throttle governed.

Hi, The la and lb heads would fit on each other but the lb is setup for the oiler pipe/trough from the crankcase while the la just has a oil cup on the end of the rocker shaft.The LB head is bigger and more squared off at the edge for the bigger valve cover.The easy way to tell between the two is the La doesn't have a pipe coming out between the push rods.Parts for both do come up on Ebay from time to time.Rob
