D-301 diesel engine

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

a question about an engine model.

IH built a six cylinder diesel engine called the D-301. It was used in the "15 series" combine harvesters and I have just discovered that it is actually listed as a truck engine.

Does anyone know what truck models it was used in?

My understanding was that the D-301 was related to the D-282 tractor engine.

Regards from Michael H, a "tractor guy"

Michael,

In the 60's the D301 diesel was optional in the 1600, 1700, and 1800 Loadstar and related models and was also available in the 3/4 ton and 1 ton pickups. The D301 was also optional in some 1970's models but I don't know exactly when it was discontinued as an option.

The U S Army Corp of Engineers had a couple of crew cab 1200 4 x 4 pickups with the D-301 assigned to the Vicksburg Waterways Experiment Station in the 60's or 70's. These trucks and a couple of 1600's are all I ever saw in person with the D-301.

If I could find a like new 1956 International S-120 4 x 4 and put a International D-301 diesel engine in it, I would have a real truck. Just dreaming.
