red diamond

Hello all, I just agreed to buy a KB11 this evening. I am hoping someone can tell me what the KB and 11 stand for. Also I believe it has a red diamond engine. Any info would be appreciated. Greg

Designation of the models by engine color.

KB1-KB5 are green diamonds. (214-233 cubic inches)
KB6-KB7 are the blue diamonds (241-260 ci)
KB8-KB12 were the red diamonds (318-400ci)

Let me know of you want more info.

Thanks, Rick, for the info. I know next to nothing about these trucks. Anything you can tell me about them especially the KB11 is appreciated. I see that the diamond engines came in different sizes. Is there one displacement that would have gone in the 11's or was it an option. The truck isn't in my possession and I won't see it again for a few weeks but where is the engine ID located? Thanks, Greg

KB-11?

That is an eighteen wheeler. You just bought yourself a true BIG TRUCK.

The engine will most likely be a Red Diamond 450 or 501, in other words HUGE.

Red Diamond engines were produced by IHC till 1974. There is an excellent article in the latest issue of Vintage Truck Magazine about the Blue, Super Blue, and Red Diamond engines.

We are trying to build a database of information here on the IHC 6 cylinder engines, pics and so on are most welcome.

This KB-11 wouldn't happen to be on HWY 219 on the way to Hillsboro and currently a guys yard ornament would it? It is the only KB-11 I have seen in Oregon.

Keep on Binderin',

John

I don't think of it as an 18 wheeler. I'll check out the engine closer the next time I see it but I didn't think it was huge or strike me as such the last time I saw it. The exhaust comes up through the hood, I wonder if that was factory. Its not the one in Hillsboro but I'll look for it next time I'm out that way. Greg

Borders Books, or you can get a subscription from thier website.

To answer your other post, I do not believe a stack going through the hood was factory supplied. I looked through my Crismon book and didn't find any built that way in the photos in there.

Perhaps someone else has more information on that?

Binderin',

John

Can anyone tell me how to ID a KB 11? What makes a KB 11 different than a KB10 or 9 or 8. The serial # starts with RED361 that is on the engine also. I thought KB11's should have the RED 450 or could other engines also be an option? Thanks, Greg

Sorry. The kb's all look the same but just gets bigger. RED361 the standard engine but in smaller trucks like the kb8.
126 hp
at 3000 rpm.
282 ft pds.
at 1200 rpm.

The RED 361B is the motor in our club's WWII-vintage deuce and a half in Brooks. I would like to know where the serial numbers are supposed to be on those trucks. Is there any chassis number or other identifying marks or stamps on them? I have looked in the engine compartment, cab, on the cowl, on the firewall, and elsewhere, and have not yet found it. I would be curious to know where yours is.

Near the front of the engine on the drivers side is a raised flat area where those #s are stamped on my engine. I have another international engine thats a little older probably a 41 or 42 that has the same pad in about the same place. It says UHM 5573 it was a stationary engine. I would like to find out the specs on it also. Anyone? Greg

Soooooo......... What's the latest on this truck. Have you identified what it is? Have you actually got it in your possession now? We haven't heard anything in almost six months.

And could you tell us what year it is?

Yes its a KB8S with KB11 badges, and no its still in central oregon. I'm dissapointed I don't have more time for it. I haven't even seen it since july. It's ready to run but it hasn't yet. It needs a seat. I've been looking for an original seat without any luck so far. Greg

Greg,

I know where there is an L-Series seat. You don't happen to know the dimensions do you?? Who knows, maybe it will fit? Jim, if he can't get his dimension, maybe when your out with yours next you can throw a tape across it.

Thanks

Carl
