It may be a Cleveland 055
It will depend on the yoke span (length between the ears). Either 2.188, 2.563 or 3.25. Spicer 1310-WJ, Cleveland R55 or Cleveland 055

They come with two sets of clips.
Edit: looks like the Cleveland R55 https://dcjperformance.com/products/spicer_5-3250x




And another "doh!" moment for me...I kept throwing myself because I forgot that inside clip joints are measured for width across the clips, not outside the caps, and I was basing my searches for joints that were 3.625 on both crosses rather than a 3.625 on A, and the 2.563 on B.  Further complicating it by searching for inside clip 1350 joints, which not surprisingly, didn't get me anywhere.  

Looks like all the parts houses keep these 3250X/R55 joints in stock too, and while the Spicers are WHOA! expensive!, I just ordered in a few SKF joints on our corp account at Napa that I'll be picking up this afternoon.  

Thanks much!

On to the next bit of fun with the '59 International B-162...since it's apart, might as well replace u-joints too. I measure the existing u-joints in the driveshaft, and dimensionally, they're a 1350 joint - 1.188 bearing caps, 3.625 width.

But with inside clip caps on the shaft side, like a GM joint would be. My first thought was that it has a 1350 - 3R combination joint in it, but it seemed odd to me there would be such a thing in there...

I was hoping to pick up the joints tomorrow at work, but figured I'd ask here before I pull the joints out of the shaft to measure the other caps..is there a 1350 joint with inside clips out there that I haven't found yet?
