Re: AMC 401 in an International?
IH had a 196 4 cly, 304 v8, 345 v8, and 392 v8. They also used the AMC 258 I6. The IH engines do not interchange(99% sure). You wouldn't want to anyway. The IH v8s weigh a ton (around 785 pounds)and very little in the way of aftermarket performance parts are available for them. They are good motors(long mileage life and reliable) , but as a swap choice going with a more common motor such as a chevy v6 or small block or a Ford 302 makes better sense. If you are loooking for some info on IH v8s, there is an article in the june 96 issue of Four Wheeler.
