Been trying to get this one from a guy I know for a little while
A 1977 Case 224. A friend of ours and his shop had just worked on it
to get it running for him as a buddy if his gave it to him. They found it
stuffed in a shed with several other brand tractors I am told.
It happened to by the other guys grandpops and left alone for a few years.
Seeing it in the shop just made me want it more. Well two weeks ago I got a text
he was ready to part with it and today was the day. Wife said were you putting that one??
Unphased by her support (bla bla bla was what I heard) I left to get my prize
Upon arriving she didn’t want to fire. Checked spark , yup. Put a little gas down the fire hole
and she tried to go. After doing this a few times I removed the carb bowl. Yucky stuff in there
Cleaned out and had him turn it over nothing. The in line fuel filter was clogged.
We removed that and found a piece of 1/4 gS line to bypass that and we finally had her
running and with the help of the battery charger.
Loaded her up and brought her home.
Stopped and picked up new fuel line,fuel filter and air filter on the way too.
She has received her first bath in years, a little polish really popped the paint back
on the hood and fenders.
Still needs a little love and attention but I’m really digging it already
Thanks for letting me share with you

I did get the mower deck with it also but that’s all Noel.
Wife operates the manual snow removal tool cannot
convince her even to try to learn how. (More play time for me)
Going to clean her up a bit more and get a new seat but it’ll
be earning its keep with that snow blower. Gonna give the 235
the year off from snow duty. With the Case I also have the
122 Cub with the snow blower and the JD 210 with blade and
blower so think I’ll be ok. Also have kicked around an idea for
building a cab for one of the for Winter. That would lead to
more storage issues.

Ya cabs are nice. The one on my ford is the canvas soft sided style. So it’s not air right by any means, but sure makes a difference if your doing removal while it’s snowing or if the wet stuff is coming down.

She is shined up, oil changed and ready for her first show
next weekend. Added fuel filter today and
also made a piece for the front hinge that holds the hood on.
Gotta find a new seat yet though.

Well the Case got her new seat today. Not an exact factory
match but sits well and was priced right. Thanks to my local
favorite man store. Pikeville Equipment.
Had to use a Uni-Bit to enlarge the 4 mounting holes a bit
no harm no foul hidden by the rubber mounts.
On to the trailer and off to the show.
