1928 IH Six Speed Special Parts

I am restoring a 1928 International Six Speed Special and was hoping someone here may have a few parts I have been looking for. I am looking for the bottom windshield frame, the radiator cap and a headlight trim ring. These are pretty much the last pieces I need to finish off the truck. Let me know if you have any of these parts available.

If you find a rad cap, show me a pic! The one on my 29 is a threaded piece of stainless tube with a cap on top!

^^Sorry...quoted the wrong reply

Oldtech - that would be great. Thanks

Duey C - I have my original radiator cap but the threads are damaged and is unusable. I can take a picture for you.

What you have pictured is the brass core of the original cap. It would have a hard rubber outer piece. If you enlarge the attached picture you can see the original type of cap. These were used on other makes as well - you need the correct thread size though.

1928 and 29 Model A Ford radiator caps fit a lot of things and have the internal threads. Find an old one and paint it black. If it has a small hole in the center it is a gas cap and won't work -- unless you plug it.

As Jack says. they are just a black bakelite cap on metal . Is your truck one with the gas tank under the cowl or under the seat?

Thats good to know! I didnt know about them being bakelite. The ones Ive seen were always just metal but that makes sense that the bakelite would deteriorate over time.

My truck is a later model 28 with the tank under the seat. According to the serial number its very close to the 29 year production.
