Check by putting some modeling clay on top of the domed piston then set the head on and turn engine over as early heads wouldnt allow some hi-dome pistons to clear. What is the cast code on the head. I dont have the parts book rite now. It also depends on the dome as RED POWER ones have a tall dome.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I used red power domed pistons Gene. My head and block were both milled. After putting the sleeves in a micrometer showed that the sleeves were just a tiny fraction out of spec. I can't remember but it was a teeny tiny number out of spec according to the service manual. Deck a d head were shaved and I has no clearance issues. I don't know the exact number, but I took a pic of the high spot when we measured. I'll try to find it.

To the OP. All the heads RTR mentioned is correct, but I will add in the rare chance you come across a 240 that will work too. I can't remember how many different valve train kits there are for the 113/123 c.i. Engine, but to piggyback on what Gene said, there is more than 1 kit out there.

I used a 130 block and a Super A head. 3 angle valve job, domed pistons and a shaved block and head. I might have only 20 horsepower, but man does it have good compression. With the exception of the freeze crack forming on the block these are really good engines.

BTW Ed, NC has a strong network of International Harvester fans. I go to the IHC 37 plow days when I can. There are salvage yards all over NC. I know where a bunch of heads are on the eastern side of NC.
