JD350 thru JD350D Serial Numbers

Post by Stan Disbrow » Tue Jan 29, 2008 12:10 pm

Listing of serial numbers by year for the JD350 through JD350D models

JD350 straight

1965 10001 - 16183
1966 16184 - 42484
1967 42485 - 64992
1968 64993 - 88280
1969 88281 - 102136
1970 102137 - 117499


JD350B

1970 117500 - 121137
1971 121138 - 138708
1972 138709 - 164035
1973 164036 - 191172
1974 191173 - 219507
1975 219508 - ?

Note:

There is an overlap in 1975 where JD350B and 350C models were made concurrently. We do not know the exact serial number of the last JD350B as a result.

The main differences between the JD350B and JD350C are that the C went to a 3/164 CID engine from the 3/152 CID in the JD350B and that the JD350C changed from dry to wet steering clutches.

However, there are some late JD350B's out there with wet steering clutches. The JD350B units would have been produced along with the JD350C until the 3/152 engine stock was depleted, but the JD350B units changed over to the wet steering clutches used in the JD350C when the stock of dry-type steering clutch parts was depleted.


JD350C

1975 219500 - 240367
1976 240367 - 261203
1977 261204 - 287209
1978 287210 - 313955
1979 313956 - 340929
1980 340930 - 365413
1981 365414 - 378065
1982 378066 - 383599
1983 383600 - 388915
1984 388916 - 393400
1985 393401 - End

Sometime during 1985, the serial number scheme was changed and the new range started in the 700000 range. So, there are some 350C units showing serial numbers in the 700000 range prior to number 723603. However, we do not know the beginning serial number in this new range.


JD350D

1985 723603 - 726752
1986 726753 - 732791
1987 732792 - 742866
1988 742866 - End


The source of the data is from a farm equipment quick reference guide that's intended to assist dealers in determining the year and current market value of trade-in equipment.

The guide as such only lists the beginning serial number for each year. I'm making the reasonable presumption that the last serial number for any given year is one less than the starting serial number for the successive year.

Thanks to Digitup for sharing the relevent pages from his guide with us so we can determine what year a given machine is. :)

Additionally, some model numbers contain an extra letter. At some point during the manufacturing of the 350B, they added a letter. Making the model one letter longer. Such as 350BE.

A - Diesel, Loader
B - Diesel, Loader
E - Diesel, Inside Dozer
G - Outside Dozer
J - Drawbar Crawler
W - Wide Track

The meaning of the letters csme from the JD350C manual section 1A3. There was no data on what the difference is between the A and B loaders.

Thanks for putting up the info, I was curious if the 355D had its own s/n batch? Also i have a 350C with a 251xxx s/n (which is a 76' according to the chart) and it has a 3152 in it. Not sure when they switched to the 3164, but i have sales brochures from 75', 79' and 83' for the 350C and they all say 3152 exept for the 83' one. When looking in the parts books all reference to the engines are 3152 engine (engine s/n 329334-590074) was made from 1974 to 1981, and the 3164 engine (engine s/n 590075-621172) was made from 81-83 and engine s/n 100001 was 83' up

Hi,

The 355D has the same serial number range as the 350D. Deere just changed the model number to bring it in line with the other crawler/loaders as a 'x55' vs. the dozers 'x50'.

The 350 and 350B had the 3/152 (64-75), the 350C had the 3/164 (75-86) and the 350D and 355D had the 3/179 (85-88). As usual, expect to find some overlap near the model break points. Deere always has changed things on the run like that. ;)

Later!

A comment and a question. In regard to the 350C series in general, it marked the time when hydraulic reversers were no longer an option - they came as standard equipment. Subsequently, reverse got taken out of the gear transmission.

In regard to 350Bs and a few having wet clutches? I'd like to see some references to where that info came from. I was working for Deere when the 350C came out - and the change to wet clutches was a big deal with a lot of discussion and input from Deere reps. It was also a big headache for quite awhile. I went to several service schools on it, and also met with several Deere engineers on things relating to the subject. None of them, nor me ever heard anything about any Bs being sold with wet clutches.

Hi,

I've only seen one. A friend a couple miles from me has a late JD350B, serial in the 218xxx range, and it has wet steering clutches.

Of course, the information is only as accurate as the printed serial number list itself.

BTW, that 350 is the one I'd really like to buy as it's in great shape, but of course he won't sell it to me!

450 G

Post by mikebehner » Wed May 06, 2009 10:45 am

I was pleased to see your message as I have a 450 B that has a turbo engine. I figured it was just before they had started the C model. I have just bought a 450 G. When I looked at the ID plate on it, I was surprised. It is 450 G H 847350. I believe it is a 1999 which is past the year you stopped on your last post. With the G and H on it, do you suppose that it is the same thing as you talked about and is a little G and a little H model?

Also. I am having a lot of trouble with the stearing clutch and brake. I guess I need to get a service manual. Where would the best deal be found? Is there any special way I need to adjust them and how can I know if the clutches are gone or if it is just the valve? Any help would be great.

There is very little that can be found on the G to H change over.I had last of the Gs and a first of the H s at the same time.The last 450 Gs were absolutely bullet proof and my 450H was a disaster.It was the first H series in Canada the 550H was a lot better made several weeks later on the same line .My son Scott got the 550H keys handed to him from Chad Little ,Deeres Nascar driver at the time Got the photo around some where of that day,There were some big growing pains in that plant right then .I had quite the time when they changed to the 550G series from the 550Bs because of a strike that had previously sent a lot of Deere lovers over to CAT that was our first Asian pussy.Digitup.

So since my model is T4F3D and serial = 038883T then according to this
list "1966 16184 - 42484" my dozer is a 350 straight 1966 .

thank you for listing this it is been helpfull .
Dig in boy !!
J-D 350 straight 1966
model # = T4F3D
serial # = 08883T

Stan or digitup
There appears to be a typo or misskey in the numbers for the 350C crawlers. I found this when I was looking for year built info for a poster on another forum. The last s/n for 1977 shows to be 287209 and the first 1978 shows to be 278210. Stan said the list had only starting s/ns and I am guessing he miss typed the ending number for 77.

Hi,

I just fixed that. Thanks! It has been wrong for quite a while!

We have a crawler loader JD350 ( straight I think )
can't find the year of make , but when I look at the serial
number it doesn't seem to be within the list provided in here


We need to fix it but want to make sure model and year to order parts .

thank you for the help

That is the loader serial number, not the chassis serial number I would bet.

That would make sense as in that era the equipment company's were doing what was called Canadian percentage content so a lot of loader arms and buckets as well as back hoe beams and buckets were made in Canada just to get Canadian content That was fazed out in the early seventy's for Deere,Cat, Harvester,Case etc But for Kubota ,Yanmar,Daedong and the Asian manufacturers it lasted into the late eighty's I had several John Deere backhoes that were a fair % of Canadian content I think it was the same parts just welded together on this side of the border .If you do a goggle earth and look up of a little town in southern Ontario called Dain City Ontario [Deere bought the Dain seed drill works in the 40s]in that town years ago you could see JD green on everything and I mean everything is John Deere green as far as the eye can see there was a area that was yellow that has been long gone and even the green you see is nearly all gone Deere had to clean up there act .Seeders ,air seeders ,drills ,cultivators ,cultimulcher's ,some plows and manure spreaders and the first AMT600s-ATV's were made there just so They had Canadian content .Digitup.
