Don't ask me why but i wanted them. The 155 is actually very complete. It was being used to mow with (i am told) up until it had problems causing it to die after it ran a while. So he parked it and left it sit out back. The 220 had engine problems,he pulled it out years ago and never got back to it,so it was left out back too. Not real sure what i will do with them yet but most likely will get them going when i get to them. Does anyone know if the 220 should have a holding valve ? The pictures aren't very good ( they are bad ),we unloaded in the rain while it was getting dark and stuffed them in the shed.

Look at the potential they have not the present condition. They would both be very nice tractors when restored!

You are very right Brian i always see potential in any old iron. The 155 is very complete,even has its side panels and came with a deck. The 220 is a hydro lift tractor and is complete except for an engine and came with two different sized decks. The 155 is the last of the original style Colt/Case tractors and is a late 68 model ( it has out board disc brakes).

The 220 could have a holding valve, don't think it was standard(maybe later dates) but again it may have one, as it was able to run a tiller.

I could solve your space problem and come get that 155. That is a nice score. I've always liked those old 100 series.

Hi

I'm looking for a replacement deck for my 155, preferably a 44" but 38 may have to do.

Does anyone know where i might find one??

Thx

The holding valve being built into the TCV became standard in late 1985.  Yours did not come from the factory with one.  You can purchase either a TCV with holding valve built in and drill new holes or find a suitable holding valve and install it.  About $200 - $250 either way you go.  It is usually best to learn about the different models of holding valves and the different tubing they used so you make sure and get the correct one.  Fortunately, many if not all of the tubes have been reinstated into stock very recently.  New tubes are not cheap, but if you could find a valve for the right price it would be worth it.  Maybe you could find one for sale without tubes real cheap from someone not aware new tubes were recently reintroduced.  If it does have a holding valve already installed, you will see a relatively small rectangular steel device right in front of where the tubes attach to the drive motor.  There will be three very tightly bent tubes connecting things.  I feel a holding valve is necessary unless you have very flat property.  Racing downhill can be frightening.  It should have a "retard " position on the travel control lever which acts as a holding valve.  To use it, the throttle must be wide open and the lever must be properly adjusted.  Refer to your owners manual for info.  

  Contact Brian Hildreth for info and prices on tubes.

   I don't see why you say they are rough, all the tin looks good and straight and all the parts are there. just a little surface rust, overall nice find.  I have a 155 here and love the way it looks.
