Hi all, new guy here. Its great to be here. Very first post ever on a Forum. I'm looking for info on a Case 222. And after lookin around here, great sight by the way with lots of superb information and I have learnt a whole bunch, But I cant locate a owners/ operaters manual with info about the travel selector. I picked up a 1982 Case 222 tractor the other day and am trying to figure out the answer to a dumb question. What is the "Retard" on the travel slector for and whats it purpose. Is it a hydrolic term that I have never run across in before my lifetime.

montana, Welcome to GT talk, I glad you found us. I don't know much about I/R-Case tractors. Someone will be along shortly to answer your question. I wonder if its like some of the big tractors had a retard valve to allow you to control the timing of the hydraulic valves. Like I said, I don't know about the Case machines. Sorry and Welcome...

Welcome to GTT,

See Item 5, page 13 of the operator's manual (Note 12) at the link below where it discusses your "Travel Cushion Control Lever" and says the "retard" is used when operating at very low speeds or on inclines to prevent the tractor from overriding the oil flow and running free. It is recommended that the engine RPMs be kept at maximum for most effective retard.

Hope that helps you!

Here is a link to your operator's manual...

Hi Montana222,

The link that I gave you above is to your tractor's operating manual. Just click on that link and it will go to a pdf file that you can then save to your computer and then print out.

I think you're on the right track by changing out and replacing all the fluids (crankcase, transmission, hydraulic reservoir) just so you know what's in there.

Don't worry about it being presentable. I posted pics of the LGT 165 in pretty poor condition, as bought. Poor thing. But she is happy now.

:welcome: to Gttalk!

Glad you have been getting the help you need already.

As for the pictures, that's not dirt... It's patina. We love pics of them in any shape LOL.

Welcome to the forum, I too have a Case 222 and even a Case 444, great tractors, just wish I had time to make mine greater than they are but I have too much stuff. Be smart, less than 5 tractors is easy to maintain and fix up.

Welcome. From one new guy to another, you've found the place to be. I've been around the block and this is hands down the best GT forum I've seen.

Ok after reading manual... I always read the manual first! The "Retard" position as I read it, is to slow the tractor from freewheeling down a hill or maybe offloading from the trailer for example. But is the tractor suposed to actually have powered movement in a real slow motion while in the retard position? Is that position something like a deep under gear? Or is it only for hold back? Mine does not have any power to move the tractor in that position. And I did get the manual downloaded so I can completely read it now thank you so much. Im in the Bitterroot Valley by the way.
