I've been looking at this for a while and took the leap of faith today. I traded a Sears GT 19.9 for it with a deck. I got the Case 444 and 3 homemade attachments.

There is a few problems with it. It needs a new solenoid and something to do with the fire (points, condenser or ignition coil).

The only reason I got this was because I was tired of lifting implements manually (yes I'm lazy).

Looks like a pretty good tractor. Smart move on the lift (not lazy).

Home adapted implements maybe, but not home built pieces. Looks like they did a decent job fitting the hood.  Home built 3pt lift for sure.

I started another post but I guess I should have posted it here. I took the points out and this is what they looked like. ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21370644985.519471.jpg

Anyone have any idea what could have caused this?

It's possible the engine caught fire once upon a time.

Nice looking setup you've picked up,I know the Case purists are cringing but that hood looks right at home on there.

I am indeed looking for another hood. I am going to return it back to what it suppose to be. I didn't have a lot of money in the Sears so I can spend a bit of money and still be safe.

What are you talking about. That is a rare Case/MTD tractor.

I got a 1864. If you need a hood I got a spare. That metal hood probably will last forever though.

Everybody that sees it in person likes it, so, I guess it will stay a 128-1861, LOL

As for the points, I would say voltage as in a lot of it.

 

As far as the hood, %*!@% ....................... :D
