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
