Help understanding International 240

Postby Hubnut » Mon Jan 19, 2015 11:28 am

I've located a 240 that I'm interested in buying. It's a functioning tractor for $1800. I noticed that only about 4000 of these were made. Is this a good tractor? Also, are parts easy to get? Seems like they might be difficult to acquire. Apologize for possibly placing this in the wrong area. Please direct me to the proper subforum for the 240.

Are we talking an International or Farmall version? I am not really super familiar but I would think it would share a lot of parts with the Super C/200/230/404. Tune-up parts and the basic stuff you will need should be easy to get regardless.

Correct. Both the Farmall and Utility versions share their basic design in common with the C/Super C/200/230 family of tractors. Many parts will interchange if you can't find the exact 240 parts you need.

Basic tuneup parts are the same as any 4-cylinder IH tractor with an IH distributor, including the Cub.

I owned a 230 for several years and it was a very good tractor. It was used mostly for plowing snow and did a fine job . I would not be concerned about the non availability of parts as others have stated.

Thanks for the help. Tractor smoked pretty bad so I passed on it.
