international inline

A guy I work with found and purchased a 1954 International RV. It's a converted school bus from what I can tell. My question is can anyone send me a brief description of the inline six engine that is in the bus. Before I saw it (the bus) I'd guessed it might be a 225 Chizzler but it's definatly larger than that...I mean tractor material. Also it's cupped up to a 4 speed manual (looks similar to a modern allison) with 2 gear sets like an old Ford farm tractor. Bear with me here I'm pretty virgin to this old school heavy equipment dealings and I'm only 25 years old.

International built em tuff/heavy. The engine is "Binder" made. The trans probably a Clark.. I know for a fact that a big block Chevy with 400 turbo weighs several hundred pounds less than that six with manual..

Most likely it's a 262 ci. International made bigger ones all the way up to 501 ci. I have a fresh 57 262 on a stand, waiting for a new home, factory reman.

Rebuild Watchout

Back in the early 70's I had a Binder six
I transplanted into an Army 6x6.

It was a little small for the job, came out of like a ton & 1/2, or 2 ton truck at the most.

Nontheless, HECK of a stout, torquey motor. Rebuilt it and it ran real strong for what it was. I think it came out of maybe an early 60's, and seem to remember it was a 264.

I was told by somebody that used to work for a road contractor that when rebuilding those things, put in NEW valves, don't grind the old ones. Well, I didn't have the cash, so ground the old ones. Sure enuf, after a couple months of really hard use pulling that heavy deuce & 1/2 around off road, with a 7 yard dump box on it, a head came off of one of the valves at "high" rpm (I had a straight stack on it like
an 18 wheeler, no muffler, MAN did it rap nice! You could hear it for 1/2 mile when it was under heavy throttle)

THAT didn't do the piston & cylinder
any good!

Well I'm just going to jump into it and mic the bores once I get it apart. He definatly wadded up a connecting rod (literally...looks like chewed gum). In any case thanks for the replies and tips. I was able to find a shop online, in the San Diego area, that will assist me in finding parts.
The stacks exhaust might be rad though!

The term "Black Diamond" comes to mind now that I think of that engine some more.

Also, the next bigger one (like 308 or something like that) may have been called Red Diamond ???
