So Peter, Did Chris pick up that JB yet? We are waiting on pictures of him loading it up. :thumbs:

Pete is still undecided if he is going to sell it or not. But... I took a Wisconsin TRA 10D as hostage while I was there Yesterday! He thinks I am just talking it to fix it for him. :dancingbanana: :rolling:

 

JK Pete, I wouldn't do that to ya :D :watch_over_fence: :biting_nails: I must be careful he'll sick the dogs on me! And I'll drown from them licking me!! :rolling: :bigrofl:

Figured Id update, I gutted it & rewired it. Got her to run & she runs great!

Steering wheel is cracked and came off. I need to replace it, but the nut on the steering shaft is rusted solid. I have the torch & hope heat will help remove it.

That's all for now.

Update:

  

The steering wheel I was able to free with a torch. The nut finally came off last weekend and today my friend Jon JB welded the steering wheel together for me. It works and I'm overall happy with the repair Vs buying a $90 steering wheel.

 

I got my wiring all tightened up and took her for a spin. Well sort of.

 

As you get to know me, you'll see that in almost every GT or item for that matter that I own, something is wrong in some way shape or form.

 

After priming the fuel line from sitting for so long, I got her running, when I put her in low gear, she took off in reverse. 

 

Thankfully I planned for my misfortune and moved my F150 so I had a clear path to ride out of the garage. As I continued to ride the Case in reverse, everything felt fine except the F&R shifter. No matter what I did, I would continue to go in R. 

 

When I came to a flat spot of land, I was able to take it out of Low, and she would idle fine. But still no Forward.

 

I was able to back her back into the garage and examine the linkage on the valve under the tractor. The valve on the drivers side isn't moving at all in or out. It seems to be stuck in one position, leading me to believe that it's in Reverse position currently.

 

Now, what can be done to correct this?

Well...congrats on getting the wheel and nut off! not sure about the Case trans? On the JBII I removed the rod going to the valve, soaked it with PB Blaster then was able to work it back and forth till it was free.

 

Before I forget I have the piece you need for the choke cable on the BIG Case (446?)

 

I would come up tomorrow but I promised my dad I would help him tomorrow.

Chris,

    I'm heading up to northern CT tomorrow and going to try to do yard work if the weather works in my favor. I completely understand.

 

If you get done early and want to come by, you're more than welcome too!

 

I hit it with PB blaster but oddly enough, if I look close enough, it looks like it's moving slightly, but something is holding it back.

 

And thank you for that piece for my 444.

You're right up the road, come over tomorrow Matt! I'll send you my number!

 

I did check that rod with the spring, it's in the slot, but flops around when I try to put it in F or R. It doesn't move with ease like it does on my 444.

Sound like TCV spool is seized you can take end cap off and give a look see may give idea whats going on if all rusted up you could try pb blast to soak for while. tapping loose dry could damage spool and lining. Thing is if stuck in rev your lever should be in rev if not your linkage is likely bent.
