I don't necessarily need the exact original but I would like low back Case seats. These are not going to be show tractors. They are going to get worked. I'm actually going to sell at least one JD. How well do the Case's mow? The deck is a beast lol. It has all new bearings and blades. The mule drive is in great shape and the idlers spin freely. Oh and I don't know the exact year. Is there a serial number lookup?

In good shape, a Case deck cuts better than a JD of the same vintage, in my experience. Real comparable to the 50 deck on a 318, imo.

I never intended on buying a mowing tractor but I couldn't say no after driving that 226. The deck just kinda fell in my lap (not literally, those things are heavy). I love the way my 212 with the 47 deck mows but if this is comparable, it will probably get replaced. We will see. I need to keep a Deere for my tiller and front blade. I'm also keeping my 140 for the sleeve hitch. I know the 200 series Case's are 4" too low for the 3 point to bolt on but has anyone built one to fit? The seller said I was welcome to take pictures and measure his 3pt on his 446. I would love to find or build one to work on the 222. Also will the snow blower work on either tractor?

Also, he has an Ingersoll 4018 with 48" deck for sale. He was talking 2200 for it. There was another 222 with a 44" deck that ran great for 450. I tried to buy the 446 with 3pt but he wouldn't budge.

I'm thinking the big differences between the 212 and the 226 will be the 226's big advantage in turning radius and the bit more power it has.

 

Word of warning, though. The first time you aim down a big hill with the Case, make sure the coast is clear. The retard function is something to get used to before you need it.

Alright back again. Now I have the 222, deck, and mule drive. Also got the operator's manual with some great part #'s written on the front. Mainly I was concerned about the deck belt so I'm good now. Here are a few pics. I will post more tomorrow when I get them both out to play.uploadfromtaptalk1364602426889.jpg

Anyone know any info on these mufflers? He told me they were tough to find. They are Nelson brand mufflers. Are they original? Thanks.

Eric - Congradulations on your new to you Case LGTs. They both look like they're in real good shape and I think you got a gret deal.

 

Yes, the muffler on your 222 is the OEM Nelson muffler from the factory and Yes they are NLA so finding one either new or used if indeed you need one will be a challenge to say the least.

 

One additional bonus. Your 222 has the hydraulic lift verses the manual (armstrong) lift. Typically when that series tractor (Low profile 200 series) where shipped to the dealers they were all manual lifts unless the PO ordered the tractor with the hydraulic lift making your 222 a special order tractor and a little more rare than the standard manual lift 222.

 

Before you start calling out colors on your tractors your 226 is all Power Red with a black frame of course. Your 222 is the J.I. Case colors Desert Sunset and Power Red. NOT Tan and Orange.

 

Below is a picture of my '73 J.I. Case 222 with hydraulic lift. What you see on the back is the rear PTO for running hydraulic attachments such as a wood splitter as you had mentioned you'd like to have. You'll need to try and locate one [rear PTO] before you will be able to utilize rear hydraulic driven implements (wood splitter). I don't want to be discouraging and I don't want to post a price here but they can get pricey.

 

My 222 is all original. The only thing I did was to replace the seat with a taller backed seat and I removed the original rear rims that have the original Goodyear turf tires on them and purchased a used pair of rims, painted 'em Power Red and mounted a set of Carlisle TruPowers and I did some fender repair otherwise the tractor is all, yes including the paint, original I did not restore the tractor.

Thanks a bunch for the colors. I've read that a TCV can also be used for the rear PTO. If so I will be in good shape. Otherwise I will go back to hunting. I didn't get a chance to sort out the belt PTO yet due to Easter. I will get more time this week. I'm meeting someone next Sunday to get 2 Case seats, TCV, brake band, lift cylinder, and a few other miscellaneous parts. He wanted some of my many JD parts in swap so I'm happy to do it. Getting tired of stepping over my extras. Heading to the IH Case dealer on Wednesday to check on paint and the neutral safety switch. Oh and your 222 is a beauty.
