I'm going to be going and looking at (from the photo from the seller) what looks like an H90 International Payloader from lates 70s or early 80s. It is powered by a Navistar DT466 and has a leaking air brake valve under the brake pedal. Anything I should be sure to look at or know about? The price is right and so I thought I'd buy it, fix the brakes, service the heck out of it, use it to knock over some trees to make a building pad and relocate 40 yards of t'was beaver lodge and then sell it going into the fall for a profit. Or so goes the plan.

I know nothing about these machines. Am I about to step on a pile of rakes?

I cannot share the seller's photo, but this Houghs looks just like the machine I'm going to go look at.

If everything turns out to be what I think it is when we replace the batteries and start it up after the snow melts, I'll be purchasing an International/Hough H80 Payloader. The machine looks just like the one in the video below but the one I'm buying has a rebuilt turbo Navistar DT466 engine (preferred) rather than the crank-ticking (what looks like a) Cummins in the video.

I'm told that the one I plan to purchase is a '78, so a Houghs H-80B. My immediate problem (especially since I must bring stuff to the machine, and not rework the battery trays) is finding the right 12v 7.7" x 8.5" x 19" pair of 4D batteries on the cheap. I did find a cross-reference battery brand table on the internet. I'm going to call my local battery, Fleet, Fleet Pride, and local Napas stores on Monday to see if I can find a pair of nice maintenance-free batteries.

Those aren’t 4D dimensions. 4D batteries are 9-7/8 high. If you really need 4DLT batteries Tractor Supply is about the cheapest around for them.

Now that I know of a source for the pair of 4D batteries, I want to turn my attention to one of the known issues. The H-80 loader uses an air over hydraulic braking system. One of the valves (Parking brake?) under the lefthand foot pedal tends to leak air requiring a long idle time to build up pressure. After an odyssey of phone calls to Case Construction USA, and two local Case Construction dealers, I found out that the parts "books" had been sold to Kamastsu and so parts for these older loaders come from Kamastsu dealers these days with some potential for cross-referencing back to Case Construction. My local Komatsu dealer is emailing me copies of the relevant parts pages so I can puzzle out what I need.

Documenting on the internet for the benefit of the next guy.
