Anybody Familiar with International 354?

Postby T-Mo » Sat Jul 04, 2020 7:06 am

I saw an International 354 on Machine Finder. My research shows it being made from 1973 to 1974 and was made in the UK, with both gas and diesel versions built. Hp is in the mid 30s. Anyone ever ran across one or know any details about them?

I'm assuming from the "no response" that no one here has any knowledge of this tractor model. I was thinking it might be a model that may not be as popular as other IH tractors.

Oh, I would suspect there may be a couple people on here that knows something about them, but perhaps they haven’t seen your post yet.

Did you check the Wisconsin Historical Society page?

The transmission and hydraulics--basically from the flywheel back--is an IH B-414, 424, 444, etc. From Tractodata, it looks like the engines, etc. are 100% British. (The 424 and 444 built for the US market used front axle, sheet metal, and gasoline engines at Louisville.)

Should be a good tractor, my only concern would be parts availability. I don't know anything about older, small British gas and diesel engines as far as parts availability goes. Check the hydraulic system carefully, some parts and especially people that know how to work on them are getting scarce. The hydraulics on these tractors are very tricky to work on.

Edit: Mahindra built clones of these tractors for a while. It's possible a good Mahindra dealer could source parts NLA from caseIH.

We had one MANY moons ago...decent little machine but my uncles beat the poor little tractor to death, Gramps ended up trading it in.

Those British made tractors have been decent, even the current Case International machines from EU. If you are considering one, just look into parts availability before you buy

Thanks, guys. From my research, there were a few posts, videos, etc, on steering problems - I don't know it that was a common problem or just a few guys sharing their misery with an unusual issue.

It looks like you can still get some parts from Case/IH. I'm not sure how much of the parts are available, but it looks like some - I believe some of the design may be share with older IH designs.

Dealer sent me a short video. I do see some considerable rusting around the valve stem area on the left rear rim.
