Hi Everybody! I am trying to get my truck ready for the National Show 2011, and I am having trouble finding parts for my 79 IH Transtar 4070B. I am trying to keep it original, but I can't even find some aftermarket parts either! Anyone have sources they are willing to share? I sure would appreciate it. I am looking for a driver's side exhaust mount, overhead chrome clearance lights, and other small misc. parts. NOS is ideal, but I will consider anything. Thanks for the help!!

I've gotta right side exhaust mount from a '77,anyway you could use it on the left side,or were they different?

I know on the 9670 it can be used on either side.  The mount for the cab jack will be backwards on the left but you can cut it off or just leave it.

Frank,  what style cablights are you talking about?   Are you talking about the ones that are just like clearance lights on fender of a w900?

The lights that I'm looking for are the bullet type. Not to get off the subject, but congrats on your new find and i have been waiting for more you tube stuff from you. I love my 4070 but the Emeryvilles are great old trucks.

Thanks Frank
