I have one and love it. It's a low powered 300 or 350 utility. I rake hay with mine and plow neighbor hood gardens with a mounted 2 bottom plow. it it has power steering and it works you have a real handy little tractor

I believe they were put out to compete with the very popular 8N. about the same HP but a lot easier to work on and with fast hitch.

The 330 was the forerunner of the 340. IH was not yet ready to introduce the 340, so put the 340 engine, a C135 (same basic engine as the C123) into the 350, along with some other changes, and called it the 330. When the 460U was introduced as a replacement for the 350U, there was a large power/size gap between the 240 and the 460. The 330, then the 340 were meant to fill the gap -- at least that is my understanding. I think there was some overlap between the 330 and the 350, also. Someone with more knowledge of the situation can correct me.

We have one that we restored. I think IH marketed them with loaders and backhoes. Does anyone know the correct steering wheel is for it ?

I believe the 330 and 350 were available at the same time. I remember one that we sold that was used for a loader tractor.

The 330 had the 350 trans/rear end and the 340 engine. not sure what it had for a loader but we sold quite a few Superior loaders. They seemed to be a little better than the IH loader for the 300/350.

I don't know anything about the engine sizes or what tractors they went into but I was led to believe that the 350 was a descendent of the Super H and the 330 was the descendent of the Super C.
Git-R-Done with a 2 way plow, one way plows are for show, parades, and plow days.

IH Equipment; '68 656D, 642 4 Bottom Rollover Plow, 535 3 Bottom Semi-mounted Plow, 540 4 Bottom Semi-mounted Plow, 12' 370 Disc, 18' 470 Disc, 18' 45 Field Cultivator, and 12' 2 Section Spike Tooth Harrow. Also lots of IH Toy Tractors.

Also have a black sheep; an AC 7045 and it stays in the shed.

I would call the 330 a hybrid. It really has more similarity to the 300/350, same configuration along with a TA and 5 speed transmission. But, the C135 is an upgraded A/B/C through 240 engine.
