Largest cube IH gas tractor engine?

Recommended Posts

So I was looking at a 650 diesel add the other day and got to thinking. The 650 was the big dog of its day for IH. It was a 4cyl. After the 60 series came online we had 6cyl engines. The 650 gas had a 5.7L 4cyl according to tractor data.   That is 350 cubic inches which is a fairly large displacement 4cyl.  

Question: What was the largest cube gas engine that IH used in a production tractor? 
 

Just for fun, I looked up a 766 gas and an 856 gas which were both smaller in displacement and 6cyl engines.  Thoughts?

   the WD40 which was 461 cid before the super wd9's to 650's 350 cid . , they turned slower with a longer stroke and were definitly more powerful than the 350 cid which ran faster. the the newer tractor were running faster yet to get their h. p.

It’s not gas though.  Would the gas-start diesel 1091 count as a gas engine?

Ha-Ha. Yep, that 1091 Cid 6 cyl was biggest diesel OR gas.   Guy around here has one mounted on an older IH running gear he tows around to fairs and tractor shows.

30-60 Mogul 1885 c.i.d.

I figured someone would come up with a rather early, slow turning, BIG engine.

Dad had an old IH road tractor with a big gas engine. Don’t remember much about it, but it was much bigger than a 345

I know there was a 549 V8 and without looking possibly another larger one maybe?  I wasn’t really thinking about a road tractor but those would also be interesting.

650 had the 350, 600 had 325 , I didn't know anything about the older ones than that. 806 had 301 in the newer tractors is what I recall

Not to change subject but I have always been fascinated by those big old gas truck engines. Hall  Scott had a big over 1000 cubic inch 6 and a bigger v12. The 6 cylinder made over 1300 lb ft of torque and 400 hp for back in 1940. They would outpull any diesel of the day. Over head cam and Hemi chamber also

It’s related discussion and that’s what we are here for. Carry on! If you were my neighbor I’d be trying to talk you out of that 😊
