Default International 8-16

Im working on a 8-16. From my understanding, there was 3 different engine combos. Not sure which one i have. Im looking for a exhaust manifold and a source for parts. Tractor is complete and was told it has ran recently but i have not had it running yet. What should be looked for to figure out what engine this machine has. Attached is a picture of manifold. Its broke in 3 spots, 2 cracjs and one complete break. Any info would be much appreciated, Thanks

1918 series VB has a chain drive oiler on right side of the engine. Mid 1919 series HC did away with the oiler and added a water wash air cleaner. 1921 series IC bigger engine 284 cu in. Until end of production 1922.
Difficult to find parts as there were 3 different engines in 4 years. A handful of Stackers have 8 16s including myself. Search this site quuite a lot of info.
You may be able to fabficate a manifold until a corre ct one can be found.

By these pictures, would there be a way to identify which model this is? This way i would have a better idea of which manifold to look for.

I believe yours to be a HC model as it looks like my HC 1054 sn the carburetor intake is all the same, best of luck

There should be a boss right by the mag with ID No. but to me its an HC. Ealier models had an oiler later models exhausted out he side of the hood. Later models also had the fuel tank bracket solid not strap steel like yours

I have repaired manifolds that are worse than that. find someone with a nickel powder torch that knows what they are doing and it can be repaired. Nice tractor by the way!

Repair it. I, like another person have repaired castings worse than this. I used stitch pins from Lock-n-stitch. They are somewhere in California and provide the supplies and assistance to use the product. It is a little spendy ut the process sure does work good. My last repair was on a cylinder head that froze nearly breaking the entire end off the head. it was on a 1944 V-12 engine that was very tough to find parts for (at least nothing that wouldn't cost less than several thousand dollars) so I used this process with excellent results.

We fixed worse manifolds than that one the old fashioned way: gas welded with pure gray iron rod.

Is that a truck manifold? I think I remember seeing something similar on a truck engine at some point but I won't swear to it. We have some new castings but they are not the same carb mounting. The manifold we used to make the pattern and core boxes came off of a '21 tractor.

Do you have any other parts for these tractors? I need a gas tank with the mounting bracket, radiator and a hood. Do you or anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks, Paul

Unfortunately, we also need a radiator and shroud to finish the pile of parts for another 8-16 tractor project.

My 8-16 as previously posted, is SN HC1054, my question is, the SN plate has a letter B stamped just above the SN. Any ideas?
I checked with the IH museum folks, but they (or he) had no idea
Thanks for any info
Dennis

is anyone remanufacturing the brass SN tag for the fender for the 8-16? The tag is approximately 3" x 6" it is for a HC model.
Thanks
