Nice Case! I just brought one home recently. Hopefully, you can get the Onan running again.

I had to clean my garage out because the tractor were outside in the rain and the garage was full of junk. The cars, well they can sit out in the rain. LOL

Started on the tear-down of the tractor to get the motor off. AND there is plenty to do. I will need to do a bunch of cleaning and then hose replacement when I put it all back together. I also learned why it was running on 1 cylinder....some power loss, don't you think?

Yikes! That first picture looks like it might have hurt. How do the cylinder walls look? Nice finds by the way, looks like they both have good potential.

cylinder wall is good, journal for that side needs a little work. Fixin is cheaper than replacin.... I got a great lawnmower guy here in town that is helping me on this one.

My wife would agree with your wife. Should I just tell her she's been parking in the driveway for 30 years, why change now? Probably not a good idea.

A ya I tried that...it is NOT what they want to hear :) But good luck, everybody needs a bigger "toy box" as my wife calls it.

Hard NOT to be a Case fan, when looking at how they built their tractors. REAL tractors...

These rods have "windows" in the beam next to the rod journal end. Weak area. It's best to use 18 or 20hp rods in them, as they have no window, and the I-beam of the rod is much beefier.

Packed up the Onan block and sent it away for a rebuild. It will come back in a few weeks as an 18 hp. My 'I always wanted one' Case is getting expensive.....in the meantime, I picked up a couple of more tractors. 316 and 318 are their model numbers. The 316 is a '78 and the 318 is a '84. Both run, need some work. I have the 316 in pieces in the garage. Fix, paint, and sell it to help pay for the case onan rebuild. The 318 is my first ever 318. What a beast of a tractor! 18 hp onan, power steering, dual rear brakes, electric pto front and back ,and a 3-point hitch. Smokes just a little on start-up, I might get lucky, may just need valves adjusted. 46 inch deck, works fine. No attachments. Oh, and one more item....BOTH cylinders are working on the J. D. onan motor. Lol!

Sounds like your tractor collection is growing big time. Some real nice GT's as well with the Case and the 318. Those would both make good working tractors. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun!

That CC Original looks like it's in really good shape, other than the paint.

Originals are getting hard to find since all of the CC folks seem to want one.
