Neighbor in area has a Farmall 350 diesel, been in family at least 30 years. He is upgrading to newer tractor, wants to sell. Nice paint and tires, nf, runs good, injection pump was rebuilt a couple years ago by the guy that does a lot of my mechanical work, has been switched to 3pt hitch. Just used for bushhogging. He wanted to know what I thought was a fair price? I sure don't need another tractor that size at this stage in life!

The Diesel engine was somewhat of an oddball if I remember correctly and some parts are NLA. Possibly made by Continental?

I had a 350 diesel when I was a teenager 25 years ago. Hopelessly stuck, pour fuel oil down the exhaust and it would drain out the pan. 

Even at that time ANY of the connentintal diesel parts were near impossible. I ended up selling it for $300 to a local guy and thinking I was in high cotton.  Last I checked it's still sitting in his yard and never fixed.

My great uncle had one from new and it is still owned by his son I think. Lots of 350’s in this neighborhood in their day but that was the only diesel. All the rest I know of were gasoline.

I've used "Olson's Gaskets" in Washington state numerous times for obsolete gaskets for my Continental engines. Only have one diesel but two gasoline counterparts and never a problem albeit expensive in comparison to a SBC as instance. Also have two "Hercules Motors" engines, and same thing. 

Monte's Equipment in Chicagoland has a large stock of Continental Engines parts also.

Olson's is good for gaskets.

 

Monte's seems to have ALOT of Continental parts.....except the ones I need.  They had near nothing for a Continental D202 I worked on a couple years ago.

Put right at 10K in mine on 2007 including 4 new firestones [14.9x38], TA, brakes, PTO clutch/brake/seals, main clutch, hyd pump, new radiator, wiring, out of frame OH, pump & injectors, new drawbar, steering wheel,  professional paint, and lots of small stuff like new hood screws etc.  Several neighbors got on my case for putting it to work after that restoration. For the last 15 yrs i have worked it like a rented mule. Big augers, hay rakes, 6 rotor tedders, loaded fertilizer spreader, tandem manure spreaders make it snort.  My reply to them is "show me where i can buy a 45 HP tractor on 38 inch rubber with live PTO, live hyd, 3 remotes, power shift, bar axle for 10k. It can be rebuilt again."   It still runs good but i need to do some head work for long. But it has a lot of use since 07. Monties in chicago had everthing i needed in 07.

You could buy 4020s, 806s, and similar tractors all day long for under 10k back then.  I commend you for actually using your 350 instead of putting it behind glass.

True, but not fully reconditioned, but yes very useable.  Part of the reason i use it is to show em you still can do a days work with them old tractors.  It is much nicer riding in a luxury cab though. My 4020s, 06,56 66 86, &88 tractors have paid a LOT of bills the last 40 yrs,  not sure my 275 will ever "earn its keep"  but it sure is nice.   🙂

I saw one sell last month on the local FB for $3500 in running condition, albeit needing a bit of work. They are somewhat uncommon but even so, I wouldn't feel bad offering $4000 as a starting point. That is, if it was in good shape and I wanted it. I like my 300 quite a bit; the 300/350 was the handiest tractor IH ever built in my opinion.
