The IH Comanche was a powerhouse four-cylinder. Using half of IH’s industrial-strength 304ci V-8, it displaced 152ci and made 93hp (gross, net was 87). A little later in Scout evolution, it was turbocharged and cranked out 111hp. When the 304ci V-8 engine was phased out, a big-bore 196ci four-cylinder was taken from half of the IH 392ci V-8, making it the biggest four-cylinder of modern times, beating the early ’60s Pontiac Tempest 194.5ci “Trophy” Four (half of a 389 V-8) by a cubic inch and a half.
