After acquiring my 446 project in a trade, I was driving down a small county road that I use for a shortcut while working. Low and behold I see a Case 446 just like the one I bought on the side of the road for sale. Got the number and called. Here ya go. Got another 446. This is a '79. The motor has been replaced with another Onan. Runs great. Has a spin on oil filter on the side unlike my other Onan's. Gonna have to check the numbers to see what this one is. Came with a 48" deck. Not real pretty but just a paint/decal job away from looking great. As you can see I'm already putting her to work.uploadfromtaptalk1367281471123.jpg

Good for you, which motor does it have? Some B43, came with a filter, just not a Case B43 spec motor.

I will post the numbers here in a bit. After doing some major clean out and loading my trailer for the scrap today, I'm relaxing on the back patio drinking some coffee. Is there a serial number lookup for the year and type?

Too my suprise, this has a P216G. Considering the Toro on the tag, I'm guessing this is out of a Wheel Horse. Anyone know which Horse had this engine? I'm guessing its a 16hp. Runs great although the muffler has a hole in it. I'm thinking of converting to duals with mufflers pointing down like the older 446's had. I may try to find some car mufflers small enough to work. Any other suggestions on exhaust or other general stuff about this engine? Better yet, how hard are the mufflers for this engine to find?

Edit: I found that the WH 416H used this engine. Seems valve seats popping out are an issue. Looking for tips to prevent this.

One major observation on this is the starter. It is on the opposite side of the engine than the B43. Which in turn get in the way of the lift point for front attachments. The lift rod for my snow blower would hit the starter which means it will not reach the pin. Anyone have a 446 with a P series engine? I was hoping to put a blade on this but it will require some mods to the lift system for it to work.

There are a few websites that I belong to where I can look up the #'s for you if needed. But I think you can also find it here

I don't know what mufflers might be available for the WH application, but you may find something suitable that way. The old Case mufflers with one outlet are history, AFAIK. The pipe bends to get the exhaust out of the Onan are hard to find and expensive to get made due to the short radius of the bends. I have seen several old Cases that used pipe fitting street ells to screw into the block (it is threaded in all of my Onans), and then used small tractor mufflers, oval shapes, from there downward.

I have read that someone is fabbing new mufflers for these, but they are a bit pricey. Don't know the source, but maybe someone else here knows it?

Hope that helps some.

I may consider these. I think in order to run the duals out each side, I will have to modify the hood for clearance. The early 446's (power red and tan) with the duals from the factory had a cutout for clearance. Considering this is a Horse engine that also opens the possibility obtaining a muffler off a WH also.

idk if this works with onans. but on briggs with valve seat issues u can use a punch on the edge of the seat to fold the metal on the head around it. such as this.

I have used the cub cadet mufflers on these Case 446s and they work good and sound great and are reasonable. Make sure you add a strap over to the engine to help support the muffler. 190forklift
