Had a gentleman contact me through Facebook. Told me he had a Case tractor he wanted to move out. Its an Ingersoll 448. I have not looked up the year yet. PO said it had a bunch of hours and wouldnt run right. He parked it few years ago. First thing I checked was the hour meter. Then asked if it was the original. This thing only has 391 hours. I just think some normal maintenance and she will be good to go.

Since you didn't disclose the purchase price, I would guess that would be in fear of the local PD showing up at your door.........?

 I'm sure that will be a very welcome addition to the family, and with only 391 hrs, she's only a baby! Nice Find! :thumbs:

Nice find. Did you see anything else interesting in that garage? You never know what else he might be interested in selling.

He had a wheel horse ztr with an Onan on it. Said it burnt a valve. I don't have much interest in it as it looked like it had hours. He was planning on rebuilding it. Other than that and a couple chickens that tried to come home with me nothing else worth looking. He just called and said he had the manuals. Gonna run and get those. Haven't had a chance to work on it other than put a battery and crank it. I have good even compression on both cylinders. Getting fuel. Just no spark. I'm gonna pull the tins and check the wiring after I tie up a few other projects. One thing at a time.

It runs! Finally got some other projects completed. I gave a little wrenching time to her. After replacing the plugs and sanding the points, I cranked it over. It fired up like it had never been parked. Now I need to replace both the throttle/choke cables and get things adjusted. Also an oil/filter change. I'm hoping to put it to work this weekend.

I went out last night just to see if that was a fluke. It fired almost immediately so I'm gonna say she is good to go and finish everythng else.
