You made out verry well . the 350 diesel is my favorite Farmall tractor. I farmed with one for years and may even be able to offer hints and advice to help out with yours a bit may even have a few 350D parts laying around here..wish I had mine back but in a moment of weakness and poverty I sold it. I still have plenty other Farmalls to work on so all is not lost. you will love that tractor if you ever get it fixed to suit you.
