Thanks guys ,
A friend who happens to have a 1966 Case 150 told me how it was a rarer more desireable tractor it was when I got it . Also told me if I decided to sell it to let him know . I once owned a 220 Case which my son borrowed about 10 yrs ago and still has , so I know how tough they are .
I'll probably just chean it up a bit and leave it in the faded original paint since it seems to be in mostly unmolested original condition .
Old abe is on the front , but the hood latch seems to be MIA with a small hole where it used to be .
I'd be interested in pictures of what the mower deck looked like , if anyone has any , in case I stumble across one in the future .

Great tractor! Congrats! That would make an awesome restoration project, or just leave it original!
However, how did you come up with 1965 for the year? They where only made in '67 and '68.
I beleave they were only made in the year 1965

I believe they were only made in the year 1965
That is correct! 65 only!

OK , I've got a question about the Case hydraulic drive system used on my case 130 .
I know its only has a 10 hp kohler but the hydraulic drive system seems to draw a lot of power when put under a load .
I was out with the 130 today stirring my compost pile with the 42" snowblade and noticed that it seemed harder for the 130 than I usually experience with my cub 100 . I usually use my 10 hp kohler 100 cub which is a gear drive and also has a 42" snowblade . I know it isn't really fair comparing a hydro to a gear drive .
I once owned a 10 hp Case 220 with a 48" mower deck that came off a 400 series Case and i noticed that it would mow fine till I started up a hill . That's when I noticed that the drive system seemed to draw more horsepower than the oversized deck did ?
I've seen some of the 400 series Case's at plowdays and they seem to do fine , so I'm wondering if its just a problem with the 130 only being 10 hp or do I have a possible problem with the hydraulic drive system ?
I guess what I'm asking ? Is the Case hydraulic drive system as efficient as the Cub hydrostatic system ?
I'm not knocking Case , and I do like my 130 but ,
My first impression is that it isn't .

There are good things about the CASE hydriv system. The most obvious is one pump does it all. Making attachment hookup one of the easiest there is. Time yourself hooking a tiller up to a 125 Cub vs. a CASE and you'll have the garden done with the CASE before the Cub tiller is mounted.
I think it saves wear on the engine since you usually have more power than what the pump can deliver for pulling so it's easier on it.
I like having an oil only link between engine and trans. It saves wear and tear and cushions sudden jolts or stops that would otherwise break something.
A good Hydrostatic is probably better to some degree, but that could go both ways. Both have pressure relief valves so your limited on both anyway.
The CASE system doesn't whine like some hydro's do. I find it annoying.
A 48" deck does not belong on a 10 hp GT. I don't care what system you have driving the wheels it will lack in power greatly even with a strong 10 hp engine.
Lastly a 130 is very old and not built near as good as a 400 or 200 series. Its good, but it just wont compare to a 226 Onan powered CASE GT. It's likely that most everything is worn out to a certain degree from when it was new so it will not function as well as it once did.
My thoughts anyway.

They still made 3 colt models in 65 with the 130 & 180 .
They made 5 models in 65. Colt Rancher 12, Rancher 10, Super H, Super 10, Deluxe 10. Plus the 130 and 180 case. Steve

In 1967 Case dropped the Colt line.
Case acquired Colt in 1965 and they made both lines of GT's next to each other. The Case had a Kohler engine the Colt had a Tecumseh.
I thought Colt went to Kohler power in all tractors for '65? ...then back to Tec in the Colts only for '66 when they did the redesign?
