1976-80: In­ter­na­tional Scout II, Trav­eler and Terra

Diesel World - - Vintage Smoke -

For 1976 In­ter­na­tional in­tro­duced a diesel op­tion to the Scout lineup. The Nis­san CN6-33 6-cylin­der diesel de­buted at the same time as two long-wheel­base Scouts, the Trav­eler SUV and the Terra pickup. The en­gine came from Chrysler-nis­san, which was a joint dis­tri­bu­tion ven­ture be­tween Nis­san Mo­tors of Ja­pan and Chrysler Cor­po­ra­tion. This agree­ment lapsed soon af­ter the IH agree­ment and dis­tri­bu­tion re­verted to Nis­san. The Nis­san des­ig­na­tion for the 198ci NA six was SD33 and it was one of a fam­ily of four- and six-cylin­der diesels used in a va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions. From its in­tro­duc­tion in Scouts through the 1979 model year the SD-33 was nat­u­rally as­pi­rated and rated at 81 horsepower. For 1980, the last year of the Scout, an up­rated 6-33T tur­bocharged ver­sion was of­fered and rated at 101 horsepower. The diesel was a rel­a­tively pop­u­lar op­tion in Scouts and the en­gine cre­ated a stel­lar rep­u­ta­tion for re­li­a­bil­ity, even if it wasn’t a pow­er­house.
