    1950 IH 350 tuneup

    A friend has a couple of old tractors, I got his 1948 2N going (with a great deal of help from this site) and now he would like me to do a tune up on his 1950 IH 350.

    Sad day, sold my 284 Jinma

    I bought a new 1533 Mahindra in Oct. I planned to keep my Jinma because I really loved it. Wife bought a new pontoon boat and needed the room in the shed. A guy from work bought it, I will surely miss my first tractor. I spent many enjoyable hours with it.

    Jinma 284 no front wheel drive

    I don't have any front wheel drive, I haven't checked it out at all, there doesn't appear to be any unusual noise. Is there a shear pin somewhere? Where should I start looking? Thanks
