I have read in Teachers' grammar books- like Martin Parrots " Grammar for English language teachers"- that the infinitive is not a part of the tense of a verb.
Isn't a continuous infinitive like " He seems to be finding the pressure of work too much" a part of the tense?
Could someone clarify please.

I wouldn't necessarily be so nit-picky with something like this. Keep in mind that there are organizations like the Modern Language Association that decide what does and does not constitute proper grammar, punctuation, citations, etc. and they can and do change their minds from year to year.
