Hey Bob,

Happy Birthday!!

The 350 turned out great, and those new tires are the finishing touch! I really love the two tone paint scheme on that model. Are you going to put the loader back on eventually? Tractor looks so good you almost hate to put the loader on and cover all that beauty!

Thanks Paul
The loader U- I sold to a friend who has a 300 utility w/power steering. Crazy, this 350 utility had no P/S. Everything else IPTO, Fasthitch, TA and traction control. Why not Power I can't grasp that. Without power steering, steering was tough. Big weakness with these machines. I rebuilt the manual steering box. Was lucky, it was good shape even with a loader on it. The pin was galled and had to fix that. The one that guides in the worm gear. Steering is nice now ih- Cubcadet-man The old style diamond cut tire is neat.
Like everything else lets see,take a look at the tie-rods (made in China) Nice job. Tubes (made in Korea) look ok to me.Ever see anything made in USA ? I was in New Jersey this weekend paid 3.72 for gas. Maybe the last time I paid that little On the Island it is 4.13 today. Filling up the 5 gallon can is a :shock: Maybe I should just go :mrgreen:
Thanks, Jackman I think that was IH answer to the popular "N"
