Can anybody tell me if International builds thier own differential or if Eaton builds it for International?I am curious because the one I have looks like it is Eaton but the ratio (4.78)is not common to Eaton diffs.Where is a good place to source parts,I need a gear set and gasket & bearing kit.

Hello bushmechanic, how you doing buddy?

I don't know yet about what you are talking about.. I hope you already sent message to your friend hoss64? that message will alert him through his email..

I saw hoss64 is a member of the group Drive-train and gearboxes and I gathered that he works at a shop specializing on gearboxes, and I believe he seen all rear differentials known to man..

I was searching the Eaton website and found the differential that I was wondering about,it turned out to be a Spicer diff.So in answer to my own question yes it is an Eaton(Spicer)diff,not International's own make.By the way ROMULO let me help you with the confusion,International is a truck manufacturer like Mann in your area,hope that helps.

You found the answers on your own.. yeah, self-reliance is a good thing, and more satisfying.

we use European trucks and equipments here, I've seen International Tractor heads in my apprenticeship days but never had a chance to work on them.

Hey Bushmechanic,

I believe there is an 'Edmonton Gear Center' still going on around that area. In Vancouver there is 'Coast Power Train' who have pretty well everything you'll need. Not sure where you're located? :)

Hoss64 and schoolbusmechanic thanks for the input but I'm located in Newfoundland so parts from out west would cost more in freight than the parts are worth,I'm guessing.I will check it to see if there is a big difference in price but Traction or Parts For Trucks seems to be my best source here.Thanks again guys. ;)
