Are international 6.0 engines entirely the same?

I am looking at a really low mile VT365 engine to use in a superduty. However there seems to be several different models, A175 A200 A215 and A230. Are these all the same mechanically and just different ratings because of the computer etc? Will the long block itself interchange with ours? Are the injectors the same? Thanks

The main difference i know is that international uses mechanical fuel deliver and power steering is driven off fuel pump. I believe everything else is the same but am not 100% sure and you say low mioes how many engine hours?

If i use the basic bare long block it should swap over with all of my components (intake, front cover. rear cover, etc) correct? Where does international mount their fuel pump?

I dont want to tell you yes or no because i work for international and just swapped a 200hp 365 for a 300hp and had to change things over but evrything there was interchangeable. And they mount fuel pump were the starter is in your 6.0

is this what you are talking about in mounting the fuel pump? The gear shown is why it was changed out, i was trying to figure out what went there instead of the starter. What would cause that to happen? Also the engine in question is A 175 but if all the cams are the same then i would think it would be good to go by just swapping over my external components, or am i missing something?

Yes thats were the feul pump mounts and thats the idler gear that drives it. It looks like you may have to swap rear covers in order to get your starter mounted up

Any idea what would have caused that to happen? Thats the only reason they pulled it and just replaced it rather than mess around with it.

Ive seen it happen a few times mostly occurs from gear on fuel pump or fuel pump itself coming loose

Ok, thanks for your input. I am not sure of the total hours on the engine but the paint isnt all burnt off of the exhaust manufolds yet so it cant be to many hours. THanks
