condition: good
make / manufacturer: CASE
model name / number: HYDRIVE 220

MODEL 220-78, WITH HYDRAULIC LIFT,HYDRAULIC DRIVE,ELECTRIC START

38-INCH MOWER DECK; MODEL J-40-77
38-INCH SNOWBLOWER; MODEL L80-78
38-INCH PLOW; MODEL H-5076
KOHLER ENGINE; MODEL K241AS, 10-HP

TRACTOR WAS WORKING WELL UNTIL THE CONNECTING ROD IN ENGINE BROKE.
TRACTOR WAS BOUGHT IN 1978 FOR OVER $2800; ONE OWNER, WELL MAINTAINED, ALWAYS GARAGED, NO RUST

 

 

I emailed about it last night and he called me this morning. He had a lot of calls but I was the least hassle for him(no B.S., pay in cash, and immediate pick up). We had a nice 2 hour conversation and I came home with it and some extra 12" tires that I bought. Now I have to clean it and pull the engine.

Atleast it didn't throw the rod. The crank may be saveable.

 

It has what looks to me like homemade rear wheel weights that are lead that was cast into a 10" castiron fry pan. What an ingenius idea. Good Luck, Rick

This is my first Case. It is a little dirty but it has lived inside all of its life. It came with the three attachments in the ad and all the manuals and tire chains. I need to get some other projects out of the way before I can work on this. I want to find a tiller attachment for it. Good Luck, Rick

Congratulations! I just picked up my '76 220 not all that long ago, and I really like it. Looks to be in physically fine shape, plus you got some attachments.

I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. And on top of it the engine is toast! If you can't pass that dud off on any one, let me know. I'll help you make up part of your loss.

Yeah that's a nice one. I got an early 220 and the same 3 attachments in storage. Someday it will get the restoration it deserves

great tractor you picked up.  won't be too hard to repair or replace that motor.  You will put that one to good use.

I've owned Case 222 and 444. Good tractors, sold them both for other tractor ventures. Then bought the 222 back to repair and resell again, and the second time it went to someone with money and brains, right Ben? :poke:
I sold the 444 to a friend, and it had some issues, which I made him a good deal and aware of EVERYTHING I knew or thought was wrong with it, and helped him work on it after the sale (at least the first three major repairs).
The sold the 222 to a guy up the street that I had to wait two weeks for him to have money and about 3 months later I bought it back from his neighbor who traded for it after the idiot blew a head gasket and continued to use it.... (plug blew out and when he bolted the repaired head back on he did not understand torque values or torque patterns). I bought it back for what I sold it for in non running condition, let it sit for 6 more months until I bolted a new head and gasket on it, and it started up on the first try after all that. I miss that tractor sometimes, so reliable. I wonder how Ben is making out with it these days...

That 10hp should be an easy rebuild, crank can be turned undersize if its scored up to bad.  The Case version of the Kohler engines have a special length crankshaft for the Lovejoy connector to the hyd pump.  Other cranks you would have to shorten them.  Unless the crank is busted, it should be ok to just get turned undersize with a matching new rod.  My older desert sunset 220 is my go to tractor for smoothness when operating.  My '64 Landlord is much nicer but not near as smooth to operate as the hydrive Case 220 is.  Cant wait to see you get that one running again.  Mike
