"I'm looking for some input and advice as I am new to this type of vehicle. I'm purchasing a 99 international 4700 with a dt466, 210 hp with a fuller 6spd, and 34,000GVW (yes heavy specs for a 4700) it has 115k miles and is a penske box truck that i'm having a dump body installed."

Those aren't necessarily "heavy specs". You can get a 4700 @ 35,000 GVW and you can get a 4900 lo-pro @25,999 if you want. The numerical value of the model (4700,4800,4900) doesn't necessarily determine the GVWR.

"I've heard many good things about the 466 and this is mainly how I made my choice. I will mainly be hauling construction debris with the occasional lod of stone, dirt, asphalt and towing a full size backhoe occasionaly, will the 210 hp be enough? and are there any good international web sites that can help me with service and repairs.

That's the same thing I do. Yes, it's plenty of power. I did the same thing with a 180HP Ford 6.6L diesel for years. The 210HP DT466 was set-up to do exactly what you're intending to do, right from the factory.
It's a wonderful engine that was built to be run hard all day long and do it for 1/2 million miles with little cost to its' owner.
