The tractor could be equipped with the following engines:

  • International Harvester C-263. It is a 4.3 L, 4,310 cm2, (263.0 cu·in) six-cylinder natural aspirated gasoline/LP-gas engine with 90.0 mm (3.54 in) of the cylinder bore and 112.0 mm (4.41 in) of the piston stroke. The compression ratio rating is 7.6:1 for gasoline version or 8.8:1 for LP-gas version. This engine produced 63.9 PS (47.0 kW; 63.0 HP) of PTO output power.
  • International Harvester D282. It is a 4.6 L, 4,621 cm2, (282.0 cu·in) six-cylinder natural aspirated diesel engine. The cylinder bore is 94.0 mm (3.7 in) and the piston stroke is 112.0 mm (4.41 in). The compression ratio rating is 17.6:1. This engine produced 63.9 PS (47.0 kW; 63.0 HP) of PTO output power.

The Farmall 656 is equipped with hydrostatic power steering, independent mechanical disc brakes, an open operator station, and 125.0 liters (33 US gal.; 27.5 Imp. gal) fuel tank for gasoline or diesel fuel and 147.6 liters (39 US gal, 32.5 Imp. gal) for LP-gas.
