The contenental engine is basically an orphan and used for one year in the F-350 and 350U.
I have experience working with and around a 350U.
They run on 3/4 of the fuel of a gas 350 per unit of work. they make 95% of the power when new compared to a gas. The engine uses a manifold intake heater system to prewarm the starting air. It is pretty much ineffective, I will say it is an ether start tractor.
They are great engines other than that.
The parts are generally not available. and when found or made, expensive.
If it has good compression, and a good pump, and good oil pressure it will be fine.
For any non running 350D tractor, scrap price is about all that I would give unless there was way good reason to believe the engine could be brought to life as it is, or a different good engine was available. Jim

I can't believe the 95% power of a gas version. Worked on a SD ranch in the summer of '64, so the 350D was not very old and looked like new. We called it the "gutless wonder". However, you may underestimate the fuel, as it seemed like it ran forever on a tank of diesel. Used it mainy as a loader tractor with a Farmhand 8 bale loader attachment, picking up behind an accumulator, loading, unloading and stacking bales. Ranch had 400 acres of irrigated alfalfa, so we baled a LOT of hay.

In the same field same plow same depth, following one another the 350U gas would need to TA back to avoid the 350UD in tough clay spots. If the 350U gas was leading, the D lost 50 to 75 feet every round in a 1/4 mile field. Jim
