Could a Mod move this into the Case forum?

 

Done.

That was a STEAL!   Even if the engine is shot, you made out like a bandit.  :rocker2:   Hope it all goes well from here. 

 

I've seen Kohler mufflers on fleaBay, and any dealer has them, AFAIK.   Not so lucky on my tractors with Onan's, whose mufflers are non-existent now.   Have to fab my own. :ah_shoot:

I can't wait to see this equipment after you have time to get it all fixed up.

I will get the serial number when I get home, read some of the manual and found where to find it. Yes pot bellied, and rotted out right in the middle. Thank you for the warm welcome to the club!

Ha! I'll take photos likely tomorrow. It's going to need two front tires. But this is going to be a fun project! I need to find a mower and plow for this. Anyone have the correct model plow and mower that would go with this?



Its tomorrow. ......... :p

Sent from my 416-8

With the sleeve hitch adaptor on the 3 point hitch, you can use a sleeve hitch plow that is much easier to find than a suitable 3 point model.   I use Brinly's 10" plow.    http://www.homedepot...-51BH/100609655

 

This is important: 

 

When you hook up your plow, the top link needs to be in the BOTTOM hole on the tractor end of it.   That makes the plow lift higher when you raise it for better ground clearance.   In the down position, adjust the top link to plow properly,  and the side-to-side location, which will probably be in the center hole of your sleeve adaptor.  Tighten and loosen the clamp bolts in the sleeve hitch adapter until the plow properly "tracks" the tractor.   That keeps your tractor from pulling to one side.   Plow should be level to slightly tipped downward in front, to make it dig in a bit.   Adjust that with the screw adjustment link atop the plow.

 

I just bought a second plow like this for $100.   The going rate around here is up to $150 for a used one.

There's a guy that reproductions of these mufflers. I sent you a PM with his information; including his email address. Anyone who would like his email address and would be interested in it send me a PM and I'll forward it to you. I've emailed Steve about price and such and I'll gladly let you know what I find out once I hear back.

 

[Just heard back and he sells his reproductions for $80 + shipping.]

 

Here's a pic of the muffler:

Hope this helps.

Looks like it's a 444 model by the ID tag.

That Case trailer is probably worth twice what you paid for the lot of it.  :thumbs:

Looks like it's a 444 model by the ID tag.

And the 14 hp Kohler parked in there, also. It must be a very early 1971 model, between the serial # and it having the snap fast system. Disregard any reservation about a 48" deck, that 14 will handle it fine.

Got a 4 prong new key switch and going to fix the ends of the wires tonight, hopefully to hear her turn over by key. I jumped the solenoid last night and she turned right over!

I am still having issues with this. I turn the key switch to the 3rd spot where it's supposed to turn over and the headlights only turn on. I checked the wiring and getting no luck. I'm pretty good with wiring, but this one is getting under my skin. I followed the attachments wiring diagram & I rewired everything. Still the same issue. I'm wondering if possibly the solenoid is bad.
