Went to WI this week-end and picked up a Case 222 project. Have had a Case 210 in past, but this will be my first Hydraulic drive one. Pretty rough, needs steering fixed, carb back on, tighten up some stuff to see it it will even run. Seems to be a little diff than what I'm seeing normally. The fenders are two piece, not one, and attachment is odd . PO gave me frame stub to use for quick attach that could be welded on if wanted to use modern attachments. He claims this is an "in-between" model that old attach won't fit and new won't fit. It had it's "Own" type??? What you think? I'll get it unloaded and pix later and numbers off tag if there is one. This is sand and orange color, not sure the year yet. Is this odd enugh to keep as is, or not? I wasn't planning on restore to stock unless it IS more rare model. Tag on back of seat says PK Power (something), never seen that on one before. Small foot rests, but diamond plate. Gas tank under seat. Will get back with you with pix.

Congrats on a great find. I think you will really like the hydraulic drive. The 222 was made for many years. Since you have tan it is probably early 70's.

Went out in dark to try to read plate. Kinda dirty/worn. Decal on back of seat says PK 222 Performance King First I've seen one of those.

Model 222
Serial 9631249

Engine K301A E002295 Not sure on OO, speciall second one, was scraped over.
Spec 473068

Not sure what A is for on K engine. My K book shows engine with A = Special Oil Pan. E in number is 69 year. Has starter gen on it.

Could be a 69 or maybe 70 model tractor then?

From what I gathered it is a 1969. 1969 was the first year for the 222. And only in 69 did they use the pk label.

Was in Northern ILL actually. About 290 miles and then up to WI for total of 325 or close. Paid $100 for tractor and the cost of gas was about $150 there and back, plus meals. No lodging needed. Never worth it, but neat to do. This is my second run this summer, almost same trip, just diff cities. I'm from WI orig and visit while going. Wife goes along then too, only time she wants to do the "road trips" involving tractors!! :D

:ditto:
P.S. Congrats on the 222, their is a chart that lists what attachments work on the early 222's

So, where do I look for this "chart"? I have found manuals for several models together, but they seem some diff than this model. Would like parts manual for the early 222 then. Owner's mans too, but will be buying the later if nothing is found for this early model. Was checking on epay and Case manuals seem way high compared to other brands I've bought. What's with that?
