You won't find any reviews either, KAMA/TaiShan were not aggressively imported until the late 90s. And the 2007 EPA mandates have already stemmed that tide. The majority TS models imported recently were 254 and 354 models. Some of the parts may be interchangeable with your 304.

Can't say about the engine though, you'll have to tell me what it says on the engine plate for that.

Wow, 1986? the tractor is over 20 years old. wonder how many hours. This tractor likely has a 2 cylinder SD2100 engine. we stock a few parts. some parts are not easy to get. anythign the chinese changed over 20 years, the old parts generally will not be available, they don't stockpile spares when they stop production of a certain design. fortunately they change designes very slowly. this tractor is probably almost same as current home market production, so there is the possibility of ordering parts from China (this process can take 2 to 3 months or involve expensive air fright charges) The biggest change is the front axle, front drive assemby, the main chassis is very similar to current produciton. the engine is still in production in China (last I checked) but has not been imported to the USA in several years. If it is cheap and works well, it could make a good tractor, heavy and strong chassis. If it needs repairs now, might be better as a parts tractor. Same basic tractor sold as McConnell, Dragon, and a dozen names I can't think of now...

thanks for the info, i was afraid if i bought this i would not be able to have it repaired or find parts. just curious do you know what a oil filter cost or air filter. thanks
i do know that the engine is a 2 cylinder, thats about for now.
after i see it i will get more data to get your advice on the engine.
this tractor comes with front loader and a grader blade.
