Belts, Pulleys, and Brackets for International
Also known as NaviStar and International Truck and Engine, International Harvester manufactured light-duty and heavy-duty trucks in the late 1960s and early 1970s. These vehicles were built to last, with belts and engines going strong 30 years after manufacturing. You can find replacement belts, pulleys, and brackets for International to get your truck back to full towing capacity.What are the International Harvester serpentine belt specifications?
While the size of your drive belt, timing belt, or v-belts for the International Harvester truck will vary based on the model year, engine, and specific trim, the average weight is about 14 ounces. The serpentine belt for the pickup truck will have 10 ribs, a width of roughly one inch, and a length of approximately 84 inches.
V-belts for the Harvester will be a little shorter, around 78 inches. V-belts, serpentine belts, and timing belts handle high levels of heat and friction, requiring them to be made out of strong materials. These include neoprene, rubber, and synthetic materials designed not to snap. The timing belts, serpentine belts, and V-belts will last between 75,000-100,000 miles.What materials are in the v-belt pulleys for the Harvester?
The material for v-belt pulleys, timing pulleys, and other pulleys will be contingent on the belt they are using as well as the applications, such as performance. Pulleys that need to remain cool and face very few vibrations, such as the idlers and v-belt pulleys, may be made of synthetic materials such as a special glass. The v-belt pulleys as well as the pulleys for the timing belt on your Harvester may also be made of either aluminum or steel if you drive the truck for heavy-duty work. Their bores may be made up of steel, steel alloys, or nylon. These materials for heavy-duty pulleys are designed to be more durable lasting up to 75,000 miles.What are the specifications for the International Harvesters brackets?
The brackets for your trucks v-belt pulleys, drive pulleys, timing pulleys, and pulleys for idlers will vary based on their applications and need for performance and power. They may be made up of aluminum alloys, steel blends, or synthetic polymers. The weight, depending on the material, will vary between 0.75 to 1.25 pounds. It is recommended to change these brackets when changing the belts in order to ensure a proper fit. However, the brackets for your pulleys can generally last over 100,000 miles. The dimensions of the v-belt pulleys and timing belt brackets are approximately 6 by 4 by 3 inches.
