Here is my restoration of my 1986 Case 220. This tractor was bought new by my dad in 1986 and used for the next 15 years. The tractor sat outside unused for about 6 years until my dad gave it to me as a gift just after I bought my own home. I began the restoration about a month ago and have been trying to get it done before the snow arrived this winter. I replaced a LOT of parts on this tractor with NEW parts from Salem Power Equipment. I also replaced the 10hp engine with a 14hp engine.

The tractor is still a work in progress. I rewired the entire tractor with a high strain count medical grade wire and insalled new gauges. I will be making new hood decals in the coming months. The engine will be getting a makeover in the spring. I just didnt have time to do it now because of the snow.

Wow. Very, very nice work. I bet your father is proud of that tractor. :clap: :thumbsup: :clap:
My father has not seen it yet. I need to get the trailer out of his yard so I can get new tires put on it in case I need to go to his house and plow snow. Thats when I will surprise him with the tractor. Thats when he will ask me for the keys back. :grin:

Rs of now, the only things I need to finish on it are the hood decals, lights, and move the seat back a few more inches. My fat ass cant fit behind the wheel where it is now. I MAY make some wheel spacers if I have time to kill and make a thread about it since a lot of people ask about them from time to time. As for the lights, I am going to try to install H3 bulbs in the stock housing and see how well it works with the plastic lens'.

I will also be rebuilding the mower deck in a few months and then paint it along with the plow. Im taking a break from it right now though because I am playing with my new Christmas toys

First one on a tractor using a single stage paint system. I do have a lot of experience painting though so it did help.

Very nice! I love seeing things restored and put back to work. Great job. When things look nice we tend to take better care of them.
