Afternoon guys, I am going to pick up a Case 222 Hydro tomorrow for $100 obo off craigslist, guy says last time it ran before he parked in the back of his machine shed it kept fouling the spark plugs. Any tips on what might cause that. I will post some pictures once I get it picked up. See what kind of condition its in maybe I can talk him down. I know the Case rear axles are valuable to the custom guys since they are hydro motors rather than a transaxle hydro. anything else I should look for?

 

Thanks in advance 

 

Jon

That's  a good deal Jon it could be a simple carb adjustment or not . I'm sure more suggestions will come along let us know how it goes. Hank

Fouling the spark plugs is either one of four things:

 

Incorrect spark plug.

Too much fuel.

Too little compression, so the oil is fouling the plug.

Bad ignition components giving a weak spark.

Thanks for the replies. I got it picked up today, got it for $80. Motor is free , doesn't have a battery so not sure if it'll crank, Need to drain the fuel first anyways and get some clean hydraulic fluid & oil into the tanks. 2 tires are junk the other 2 aren't far behind but the deck is super solid and the sheet metal on the tractor is relatively straight. Couldn't be happier, If nothing else i'll part out and keep the axle and hydraulic pump for a future project.   Ill get the pictures up in a few min

Use 15-40  motor oil in the hydraulic system.

Will do thanks. got some wiring gremlins to address but that shouldn't take long once I grab a diagram, only 5 wires on it anyways. getting the motor running is the key, if I cant i'm probably not gonna sink a ton into it and most likely part it out and keep the hyd pump and the drive axle for a project but honestly dont like that idea because it is so straight, virtually no rust and no dents or bends just chipped paint and peeled decals

Also the previous owner said he does know the hydraulic cooler has a pin hole leak in the bend- question is , what kind of pressure is that? should be on the return side so pretty low correct? I'm wondering if I was to find a aftermarket transmission cooler about the same size or really any cooler for that matter? this one looks to be aluminum and not sure how to repair that aside from epoxy or sending it to a radiator repair shop but trying to keep it low buck for now

Just for a test run you could loop the lines or just run it and watch for a leak then you at least know where its at

Yeah I was just gonna bypass it to give it a shake down run before I decide if I'm gonna sink any money into it. Probably do that Monday.
