You were saying parts are non existent and you had no idea if they are or not...they are available....the engine parts are most of the rest of it.....an option is one thing....there were 1800 of these ih branded tractors made so they are somewhat rare....but that in itself is not an option..it’s a reality, a fact...

I was saying parts are not as plentiful for those as normal tractors which goes to reason since they were not sold for many years if all you wanting is servicable parts you'll probably be ok but cosmetic parts will be much harder to find

I hate it when someone responds and has no clue what their talking about 

I don't understand your rude response either the locality also matters and there's none in my area and I live near a large tractor salvage yard and never see any of those tractors here

I’m not trying to be rude.....it’s a matter of replying with helpful truthful statement ..... a statement that you had no idea if it was true or not....just because they are not in your area doesn’t mean anything at all....they are not in my area either....if people reply with answers that are not researched then it misleads someone.....out of respect for people who want to get real questions answered please don’t answer with a statement of fact if you are not for sure....that was all.....

I have many good communications as you can see and got much help about this machine, in 2 different threads here ......now I know that I can get some parts, and the hydros are not repairable, and sheet metal obviously can’t be ordered new....but the engine was used for a lot of Mitsubishi tractors and the Case IH models after the buyout, and per Pitt Auto Electric in PA the engine parts are available.....

I wish you the best in future parts searches for your tractor I was only indicating that some parts are scarce on some of those models and I was stating facts on seeing those tractors in my area  iH's parts are laughable at best for Old stuff I

Yes they are....at only 1800 branded IH these may be collectible or at lease a neat machine to show off.....maybe someday......

I have a 234 Hydro with a 48" Woods belly mount deck.  It is great little tractor.  I use it for grass cutting and rototilling .... works well and is really easy on fuel.  I always really liked the 50 Series styling that they used for these..still looks really good today.  Case introduced the 235, 245, 255 in 1986 - same tractor just different tin work.  They looked like the 85 utility series.  Some parts are still available through Case-IH.

The serial number breakdown for the 244 is as follows:

1982....8001

1983....8460

1984....9089

1985....9716

Thank You! As I never exactly knew what year mine was!  I always thought it was a 1983, I think mine is 87XX I need to check.

Ben, some Cub Cadet dealers might have engine parts for them. After CaseIH gave up the Mitisibushi tractors Cub Cadet sold them for a while.
