Copar And T70 Pictures.
Posted July 10, 2012 - 09:56 AM
Well, my collection jsut grew by three. I'm up to 17 different Panzers. Yesterday I picked up a Copar, T-70 and a Penn 88.
The Penn 88 pictuers are in a different thread.
The Copar I believe is a Model A. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I found a stamp on the right frame rail. The serial number is 118. The guy I bought it from said it runs, but has governor issues. I said I'm used to that, I'm from Illinois. Lol. He said when it starts, it screams to wide open and he doesn't know why. It also is leaking oil like crazy. I am going to see about the governor concern and then pull it apart, check to see if it needs rings and then throw some new gaskets on. I am excited about finding a good looking and mostly complete Copar. I did not get any attachments for this, but I have a one bottom garden plow from a different Copar I have. The other is unpainted, incomplete and I am looking mostly for an engine for it.
I paid dearly for these, but hopefully they only need minor mechanical work. The hard part is done for me....PAINT! For some reason, I hate painting. I like the outcome, but i hate it!
The T-70 has the 90 degree PTO and what looks to be the original activation control lever on the left side of the steering wheel. It is a super simple design and is actually quite handy. It works very well. I need to rebuild the carburetor and that's about it on this one. It has the turf tires rather than the bar type and did not come with any attachments.
Here are some pictures. Please comment or ask questions. Enjoy.
Here are some pictures of the T-70.

Then if it still has governor issues, then remember that most governor issues are really carb issues. The governor will yo-yo if the carb is not giving a good enough spray to keep it from having to go wide open to keep it running.
How good is the steel on the T-70? It doesn't look like it's even been run since it was painted. There was some stuff on there that shouldn't have been painted, but I'm not going to judge the tractor based on the fact that it was given the ole quicky paintjob.

I got a tube for my "Daily driver" and will have that back up and running for the nephews to mess with.
I did not realize how wide the Copars are. They take up tons of room!

I'm no expert on the early Copar Panzers but I don't think that's a model A. The ID info and pics on panzertractors.com show the drive casting actually having "Model A" cast next to the Laurel, MD area.
Your right. I'm sure its not a Model A. I'm not sure which model it is. I am not that familiar with the Copar's just yet. I have to do a little more research. I've just been busy this last week.

It looks like someone tapped off the muffler and shot the rest. LOL.
Oh no, he didn't tape it off, The back side of it is painted and a little on the sides, just not the front. Oh well, he still did better than I would have. I still haven't painted my first one, which I ot about 5 or 6 years ago. So, kudos to him for doing it.
