Thanks everyone! The hyd hoses for the tiller are in excellent shape with no dry rot or cracks. Plan on having a garden this year. Didn't have one in 2012 due to being busy. The tiller is heavy especially when you try unloading if from a truck. 


Hoping to work on the 66 chevy soon.

Nice Case GT.  I think you will find it to be very rugged, capable and easy to repair.  The hood scooped models are very popular.  The hydraulic system does NOT use hydraulic fluid, it uses motor oil.  Most popular is Rotella 15w40.  Download an operators manual to familiarize yourself with the unique aspects of these tractors.  There are many well built accessories available for these tractors.  Take extra good care of that Onan.  They can be very expensive to have properly rebuilt.  Good luck.

You've got yourself a great tractor. Have fun with it.

At my age, I regret having to say this, but I used to do wheelies with a 444 and a tiller, back in early 70s.

If I'd had any clue, I'd have taken better care of the old beast.
