International 354 diesel

Recommended Posts

I am going to save a 354 from going to scrap. The motor is not stuck, need tires. Where these pretty reliable tractors? I think they was an up grade of the 404.

Hi, the 354 was a later model of B275 and 276, the main power train was built in Bradford UK and put in a crate and shipped to Louisville, KY, USA where final assembly would occur.
Add were wheels and tires, Delco electrical components, front axle and power steering. If Diesel they had UK built BD-144 engine and gas had BC-144 engine. 
They were a very simple and tough tractor.

They are tough old tractors. As said direct lineage from the 414, 424, 444. Didn't have as good of power steering setup as the 424 or 444. Good little tractors, the hired help could tear them up. Hard to keep brakes on them.

I have a 354 with a model 1850 loader on it runs good very reliable. Only issue is power steering, turns left no problem, right turns hard.

Nice looking 354 and 1850 loader.
The PS problem is probably the Valve in the steering cylinder.

Hi, we had a 434 (older model of 354) with 1501 loader and manual steering from 1969 to 1982 then traded on 384 with 1550 loader and PS.
This tractor was used every day to feed silage to dairy cows.
Just don't try turn the steering wheel unless the front wheels are moving.
