    Couple of things...forget about soda. I think that was just a fad. Everyone I have talked to who had something soda blasted says it was a mess and they would never do it again. Right now, it looks like the trend is to go lots of media volume with a lower psi. I spoke at length to a place doing whole car bodies using black magic using the high volume lower psi route and they say they can sandblast a whole car body without warping. Now these military trucks will take more abuse. They might hold up to any psi and volume from anything but it might be best to go the high volume lower psi route too. I'll see if I can dig a link up to that place. If you can , recycle the black sand. It only gets better with age. I'd suggest blasting inside a shipping container.

    Well 2 days ago I tried to turn it over and the motor locked up on me. I pulled the plugs and shot some atf in the cyls. I was busy yesterday so today I went over and tried to start it again. No luck. I pulled the compressor section off the motor and figured out how to turn the flywheel in reverse. Once that was accomplished, I hooked up some jumper cables and she turned over and over and over! Woohoo, free spinning motor. Next I cleaned the plugs with a wire brush and installed the wires. Sprayed some starter fluid in the carb and hit the button. Motor turned over but didn't fire. Check for spark, no spark! I tested the coil, it had no juice supplied to it. Jumped a wire from the coil+ to the jumper cables, sprayed some starter fluid, hit the starter button and she fired up!. Now I have to find that coil wire and fix it right, then hook up a fuel tank and plumb it in. Once the motor runs for a few min. I will go ahead and hook up the compressor part. Things are looking good for a cheap GOOD blasting settup.

    sounds like you are making good progress on the compressor. A running motor is always a good thing to have!!

    Gimpy,

    The International motor probably is a 196 cu in 4 banger. I had one in a old International Scout 800A.

    They use the same crank, connecting rods, cylinder head and pistons as the 392 V-8 engine. Just about all of the International gasoline engines shared some parts.

    If memory serves me, there should be a plate running the length of the block where they sawed the other half of the block off..

    Yep, that's it.

    All of the internal engine parts and the cylinder head should be the same as a 392 V-8.

    The 152ci IH motor is half of a 304ci IH motor.
    The 196ci IH motor is half of a 392ci IH motor.
    The 345ci is most common though.

    Try a scout forum for info on the engine.

    Thanks for the link, I got it running with help from the guys at Binderbench.com. Just needs some fine tuning.
