Had a little down time at work today, so I filled the hyd system on my 220 with 15w40 Rotella. What came out a couple weeks ago when I last worked on it looked like red ATF or similar. Very watery. I am happy to say she moves just fine now with proper oil in the system. Since I have the seat/mount removed, I was kneeling on top of the fuel tank and she has no problem darn near throwing me off if I get a bit to generious with the speed lever. Now to finish fixing the headlight circuit and find a decent seat off one of our junkers at work. I will worry about the paint next year as she will be my "yard tug" around the house. My 920 diesel Allis is to large to really be usable at home. One reason I got the little 220, pull my yard cart ect. I have the front plate for a mower deck and what appears to be a good PTO clutch. Need to find the smallest deck Case offered for this tractor. I have a gate and shed door opening that the max that goes thru is 47" So smaller is a good thing. Mike

Case had a 44'' deck for it. 

 

Glad to hear you got it running.  Nothing like a little encouragement during the day!

Don't be fooled by the 44" Case mower deck. If you measure it you will find it not fitting between the wheel wells of the pickup truck. Ben should know this, since he bought my Case 222 with 44" deck.
