I’ve got my eye on a Case 448 that needs a ton of work/parts. If I bought it I intend to build a loader for it. It’s missing the hydraulic pump so I figured why not beef it up so it could run the tractor AND loader. My question is what size pump came stock on this machine and what type was it, i.e. vane, gear, etc? I’m trying to estimate how much I’d have into it and if it’s something I want to take on. Thanks

My 155 has a gear pump which is smaller I would imagine, its a Borg Warner Wooster div. pump and is pricey if  you can find one. Even used their not cheap with no guarantee it will last, the most daunting task would be to find a new pump with the inlet and outlet of the same size's in the same position. Then there is the control valve and the motor to be concerned with, a repair manual and parts list are a must. I'm not trying to discourage you just pointing out some facts, their great tractors.

I’m just trying sort out how much I’d have into it, it’s missing alot, needs to get completely torn down, sand blasted, paint, tires, new motor (was gonna use one of the HFT 22 hp Honda clones), the works!

In my humble opinion, I would spend the money on one that's up and running.

Way better to find a 600 series with a loader . The 400 series frame is not heavy enough for a loader.

This has been done a few times and work but like others have said, you'd be money ahead to find a 600 series Case. They were built with loaders already attached. The 448 frame is heavy for most GT duties but not really FEL work. The stock pump is plenty big for a loader. I use a Case pump mounted to the front of my 1655 to run the loader. It's even the Case pump mount since Case mounted the pumps to the Pto side of the engine. As for capacity, I'm only using about 40%. Case pumps are capable of 2200 psi at 12gpm+/-. My loader relief is set around 800psi.
