Main article: International Harvester

The International ID-6 was the same as the I-6 except for its diesel engine. The 248 ci diesel used the same block as the gasoline engine but was strengthened with a 5-main bearing crankshaft instead of 3. The diesel engine used International's well-known gasoline starting method.
