Hey every one just wanted to know if any of you want a running case 130 or should I buy it and restore it? It is missing the fan for the radeator and some sheetmetal on one of the front sides other than that it is all origional. It comes with the deck which is is GREAT shape he is asking 400 any buyers? Last where can i find a replacement fan or is it not entirely essential?
That's a reasonable price for a Case 130. They are not easy to find. That was the first Garden Tractor with the Case name. Case bought Colt in 1965.
A replacement fan will be plastic and it's available new for around $35.00. Otherwise look for an original metal fan from a Case 190 195 155 or other similar model year Case with the same fan. Look up Steve Guider for any parts he may be able to help you.
The fan is essential if your going to use it as a worker. The fan mounts on the front of the engine and pulls heat away from the oil cooler. On a tractor that is hydraulic drive I wouldn't operate it long or work it hard without one.
Does it have the rear fenders and tool box under the seat?
Where is it located? It's hard to say if I'm interested without a location stated.
Good luck with whatever you do.
