Just got back from picking up a 2414 project. Trans is stuck and didn't roll, but mostly complete. PO had hood and fenders painted at B-shop, real nice. He threw in a better tire, one was shredded bad for the back. Even thru in a Case frame and some wheelhose trinkets with the deal. Nice haul. Pix later, was dark and very foggywhen I got home, so didn't take any. Think I'll be taking tunnel off on trailer, open trans and see what goes before I can roll off trailer. Might think of making loader for this one. Not a PK one, but homemade. Be a long time project. First issue to see if it will run and drive some.

Congrats! I am looking forward to the pictures!

I hope the trans is an easy fix for you, I am not familiar at all with what type of trans they have. But I know you'll get it up and running in no time. Good luck! :thumbs:

Congratulations on another buy! I can't wait to see the pictures! I hope that it is just jammed in gear and not rusted!

Well,got some pix tonight. Trans was full of water. Came out the side fill port, then tried the bottom drain and trickled out there too. Poked with driver and gushed out for a second and not much oily stuff at all. Hmmmm! Sprayed PB in holes and shifter tower best it will take to let soak. Kinda hard to get good shot in tractor. Some say you can reach in side port with tools and push gears back to align if slipped out of shift shafts. NO WAY! You can't see anything but the main gears in front way I see it. Tin's still on, too cold to work on now. Supposed to be sunny next few days, maybe can get out there again. Found a patch in gas tank to re-do. Brake rods broken off, but PO gave me new clevis's for that fix. Hood and fenders are painted real nice. Took them in house to set around and P/off the old lady looking at them! Heh! :smilewink: Seems the front wheels may not be PK? No weight holes and spaces in them. Check out pix. What you think? Has optional "vented" seat. Serial on tags is gone, but got a shadow off them with dirty finger rub. Cn't see the center number on either. 42?62, should be a 77. Seems right to a 76 brochure I loooked at, cept mine has the adjustable three point links, not ones with adj. holes like brochure shows. Small brake pedals, but large clutch pedal. Steering shaft tube spins like many. Has a tab on it, like it was on tractor with brace?? Steer col and box, diff color, so think was changed once.

Even with the things wrong you listed it looks like a worthy candidate to me for a restor! I would have bought that in a heart beat.

Nice rouged looking unit! Good luck with her! :thumbs:

Sorry I can't help you on any of the question! I just haven't had one of those yet :(

Looks like the start of a beautiful project. Lot's of whistle tubes in the seat for sure. You'll have that up and running in no time.

Awesome tractor and congratulations on a fine rescue. It just burns me up when I see such fine equipment abused and left to rot like that. If your not using something, or don't have the room, for crying out loud sell it while its still worth something!

Looks to be pretty nice shape . One of the PK I bought was like yours and that the trans was rusted up ,even if you have to put in new bearings it shouldn't be too bad . Al
