Default Re: IH cutaway engine?

I would guess it was made by IH for display at the auto shows when that model engine came out or when a new model of truck came out that used that particular engine.

See all kinds of neat stuff like that at the Chicago Auto Show, and where-ever the other big ones are located around the country.

Before I looked at the pictures I was guessing either that, or possibly a cutaway model for use at auto mechanics trade schools, which it could still be, but with the clear molded plastic valve covers and other parts I'm still thinking it was factory made instead of something that was cut open at the school for demonstration purposes. I don't know if the factories supplied engines to some of the bigger schools themselves or if there may be an aftermarket company out there that specializes in cutaway units like that.

Some of the bigger new car lots used to get cool stuff like that too, that many of the smaller low volume dealerships didn't.

Is it Iron, or is the whole engine lightweight molded plastic?

In any event.... It's a neat piece to have.
