I was out at a farmers place in the spring deliving some product.  In his Dads shed was an dust covered 448 with tiller.  We had a chat and I picked it up tonight.  Hasn't run in 5 or 6 years steering is shot.  Its all there, under the dirt and dust.  Some clean up and TLC should be good.

Photo as I found it and at home on my trailer.


How do you rotate the photos?

Nice model. Should be easy fix, but might have to tear down a bit to get whole steering shaft out if need to replace a gear on it, or the shaft. Some grind the end of shaft off below the gear and slide it off, with shaft still in tractor. Worst part is getting the steering wheel off most times. Kinda humorous how all the sod/grass is still stuck on tiller from last use. Put away Wet then? heh!

I have a good steering shaft left from a parts tractor if that is a part you need. I did already sell the sector gear. I do have the whole plate that bolts to the frame.

It runs.  Hooked up the booster cables, primed the carb.   :dancingbanana: It fired after couple of cranks and after a minute of priming it cought and run on the gas in the tank.  5 year old gas.  It was still strapped to trailer.  It spun the wheels both forward and reverse and will lift the tiller.   :dancingbanana:

It does need a good cleaning, oil leaks repaired.  General TLC Think has good potential.

awesome little tractor. I never seen too many GT's when I lived in AB, but there sure was a lot of bigger Case farm tractors to be seen.

A lot of times the steering shims need moved. In the Case operating manual is instructions on how to do so. Shims are there in the form of washers. Just a matter of moving them from one side of the gear to the other. That's of course given nothing is stripped.
