Found a B250 International. It is pretty cheap Thinking about buying it but a real steal can turn into a real pain if you dont check it out first. Anyone got any advice. Like how dependable is the model. Any weakness in the design like rearend is weak ect. Are parts available where and how expensive. It is a diesel, can the pump be rebuilt today or is it a dead machine when it goes. I think it was sold in Britan But was there a US model that is close. Read somwhere the B275 is the same but is it. Tractor has a front bucket on it is the hydralic system up to using a bucket.

Generally I am a tractor dummy. Know a lot about trucks cars ect but new to the fram tractor buisness. Help Please. Thanks

The designs used for the B-275 and others from this series were used in a joint venture in India between Mahindra and IHC. Many of the current Mahindra parts will fit the B275 and may carry over to the 250. The Mahindra dealer in my area has been in the tractor and cotton picker business for many years and is rather resourceful regardless of tractor color. The dealership is located in Batesville, MS. I believe the name is Delta Tractor and Picker. You can do a yellop page search on Yahoo and find the listing. He could point you to parts sources if you don't find some in your area.

This tractor was the first that came out in 1956 pretty much in the order big diesel describes. They were shiped, primarally into the Canadian market in the beginning. Here in Canada we also had 444 that came after the 414. That 444 is not the same 444 shown in Wendell's book 150 years of IH. The 250 and 275 were built for British climate and didn't fare very well starting in Canadian winters. It was always said you couldn't get them going from Nov. to April. That inproved in the 414 and even better after that. They are still completely rebuildable, my neighbour just did one. The 250 has a transmission driven pto. Its transmission is 5 speed similar to an H, no Hi-Lo. The 275 has a constant running pto., 4 speed transmission with hi-lo. These were durable little tractors as long as you didn't have cold weather. I have also heard tell of that being cured, so I wonder if there wasn't an upgrade could be done during a rebuild.
