Its been a while since I've posted anything. Figured its time for a little update. Last weekend I did a little trading and ended up with this '74 444. She is a basket case, no pun intended. Someone mounted a b43 on it but luckily only cut the hood for fitment. I have a kohler to go back in. You all will notice on the rear, the real reason I went for this. Low and behold a PTO valve and a sleeve hitch. The hoses are actually in good shape. Can't wait to get at this thing. The Nelson muffler is intact. I have a friend who thinks he can remake the original pipe out of the pieces I have there. I also have another Case chassis that just so happens to be an Onan frame. Guess I will have to see if the Onan is any good.


Ps: also came with one glass headlight LOL. Anyone wanna trade me that one glass for a couple plastics? I will probably never use the lights so it doesn't matter to me.

Darn..........When I saw the heading the old lawenforcer in me kicked in and thought I was going to solve a big case.......Seriously nice tractor. Hope you can get it back in action soon.                                                                           Roger.

 Looks like a fantastic project! The hydraulic pto is a nice feature, and one that I love on my 74 444. Look forward to watching your progress. :thumbs:
