    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. Replace points, cap, rotor, condenser, and plug wires. I've never seen the tractor or a 350 for that matter and I need to know...

    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.

    Pickup (tire size) question

    JD 110 Wiring

    I bought a K181 (8hp) engine off of Ebay to replace and identical engine from the 110 JD. The difference I ran into is the engine I am replacing with doesn't have the 12 volt coil that the original had. The wiring harness to both engines is the same connection but something is different within...

    KK carryall

    I took a KK carryall and built a carrier out of Unistrut to haul wood with and carry various items (chainsaw, tools, etc.) I bolted it to the carryall which made me buy an additional KK carryall to carry pallets of firewood with. Looking back, I would have built the carrier to set on the...

    F20 and F30 Farmall

    My mother has two old Farmall tractors, I believe one is a F20 and the other is a F30. Both were in running condition when my Dad died 8 years ago but haven't ran since-although I'm sure they will run. Mom would like to sell them, what would they be worth and how should I go about selling...

    Tractor arrived

    My tractor arrived yesterday morning and I have it stored inside my shed. Raining here so I didn't get to play with it much. It's called an Ag King 2840 LE, the only difference I can see from the posts is that it doesn't have the electronic dash. It has the same gauge arrangement as the 254...

    Jinma tractors & parts

    Does anyone have a ballpark figure on how many Jinmas are in the United States at this time? Just curious as to how many parts are available and if a used parts network will be cropping up in the future. What do you feel the EPA laws will do to the future of importing Jinmas? Mine will be...
