I recently bought a 20 hp Ruggerini air-cooled diesel, and I'm looking to put it into a GT. I've put an ad in the local classified hoping to find a nice Bolens Large Frame for it as it's kind of tall and won't fit into most GTs without some sheet metal mods.
I've not had any luck finding a Bolens nearby, so I'm falling back on using my Case 444. Problem is, it's an earlier model and doesn't have the holding?? valve, that keeps the tractor from running away from you on a hill. (Hopefully I got the name right).
My question: What does it take to put a holding valve in the tractor, and do I have to use a specific valve from Case/Ingersoll, or can another valve work?
Also, I want to put a 3 pt hitch on the tractor. I doubt I can find an OEM hitch, has anyone made a hitch for the Case 4xx series?
