I bought this last year - never used it ..Had two cylinders rebuilt and tonight after a couple
beers I decided to go the barn and put some gas and get her going. It’s headed to a guy in my area who works on case stuff for a much needed tune up and maintenance . I’m excited for a summer full of digging holes and moving stuff!
Looking for a grill if you happen to have one let me know .
Thanks guys- I enjoy this forum quite a bit.

A whiles back, I thought the vendors sold a fairly close front grill for these. I purchased it and It's close, would need a bit of work, like 1/4" wider if memory serves me correctly. Since I had the old one, I ended up repairing that instead. So, in saying all this, if you're into doing a few slight modifications to a front grill, (I'm sure it could be done without really knowing what was done to it), you could check with our vendors. If you go that route, just post it on here to confirm,,

Hi Mlinn67...that 646 B looks familiar....my son bought one from a guy in lockport a few years back and got it running and i'm just wondering if you bought it from somebody in western ny....here's a pic of the one my son had....complete with a kubota bucket mounted to the case fork bracket which looks like the setup you have....and his hydraulic tank was also yellow like yours....if it's the same tractor; i guess it's a small world....that thing will do a lot of work....

mconway I live in Lockport, NY and never saw the one your son purchased come up for sale. Did your son sell his recently?

Mconway-

Hi Harry....i remember you telling me that when i first posted about this....he traded for a 446 with some attachments but he put the d100 hoe to some good use while he had the 646b....hope all is well with the craziness in the world....

Mlinn67....here's the first thing that caught my eye....top pin in the bucket....that fork mounting bracket is apparently a much sought after piece and that one isn't cut and welded as the kubota bucket is bolted on...also it's a lot heavier than the original case bucket so without the hoe or weight on the back it doesn't push dirt very well....

Mconway-
Great history and pictures! The information you provided really fills in some holes (literally) for the background of the tractor !
I’m so glad you saw this post!
I wonder what happened to the original case bucket?

just a heads up....the flywheel key is one he had laying around...NOT the correct one....guessing the two cylinders you rebuilt are for the boom....
