IH 282 gas engine

Does anyone have any experience with the IH 282 gas?  I used to run a 503 combine that had a factory 282 gas, that was repowered with a 301 diesel out of a 715 combine. The 301 is real similar to the 282 diesel, and was wondering how similar the 282 gas was to the 282 diesel. Were they the same block?  Did any other IH machines have a 282 gas?  All the 282 diesel powered tractors that I know of did not run the 282 in the gas version of the tractor.   I think the 706 gas had 264’s and 291’s in them.  Was just curious about a 282 gas since I’ve never actually seen one.

The 282 Diesel and 282 - 263  Gas were basically the same block , just minor differences I know the oil pans on either gas or diesel  were the same on the tractors combines may have been different than tractors they usually are

The C282 used in the 503  and 403 combines is a sleeveless engine and uses a 3 11/16 piston unique to that model. You might be able to bore it out to a 291.  I don’t think it was used in any tractors.

Thanks for the replies. So it seems like the C282 is kind of its own engine. I think it would be kind of neat to find one.  Not sure what I’d do with it since I like to keep things original. Maybe transplant it in a 706. It would probably look fairly normal. I know of a salvage yard in KS that had a 503 and a 403 gas, but they succumbed to the crusher a few years ago. I wonder how hard the C282 is to find anymore. 
What got me wondering about all this, is the 503 combine I grew up on is being sold on auction in March 2023. It was originally equipped with the C282 (or so I was told) and I helped the owner transplant a D301 out of a 715 into it. Had a parts diesel 503 combine to help with changing it over. I used it all that year in corn, and then it was put away in a barn since 1997. It will be fun (maybe a challenge) to wake up the D301 after a 25 year sleep in March!

Hello all.

I'm new to the site and I think I have one in a 460 Wheatland utility. I removed it from a '60 IH combine 20 some years ago. Still use it. Actually why I am posting looking for a carb kit or carb seems hard to find the right one. Anyone have any ideas you could through at me. Thanks in advance.

We had a 503 with a diesel, I think it was the 282.I shelled hundreds of acres of corn a year with it.,Switched heads after that to do 200 acres of beans.The next summer was into couple hundred acres of wheat, barley and oats plus custom combining.No AC ,100 degrees air temp,90% humidity I would close the door,turn the fan on and sweat.I was a teenager and early 20's and it wouldn't bother me.My dad would let me do all the combining and now I know why.

He didn't want to.

In the 60s I custom combined small grain with a 101 combine with an aftermarket cab where the ventilation system was the roof was hinged to open about 10 inches in the front to let air in that got miserable some days.

Welcome to the forum.

You probably should start a new thread with your question. As you see by the replies after you posted, people are replying to the original post from January 7th, and completely missing your question.
