I found some time to assemble a few web pages that show a few of the steps involved with my first full on Case restoration. Purists be warned.... I did some modifications LOL !

The 448 pages start here > http://www.data-cut.com/projects/case448r1.html

In the creation of these pages, I also did update some other pages and made them available on my "projects page".

The bulk of that is Case related, so you may enjoy looking around there too.

Grummy,

After reviewing your work I can see that you have finally mastered these tractors to the point I will be comfortable letting you work on mine. I'm going to start loading the trailer to bring you a few new projects! :trink: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Very Sweet Grummy

How are the Sno-Hogs ?

Stewart
I have mixed feelings. First, note that they are filled with washer fluid. Next, sometimes, in really wet sticky snow, I think that they tend to impede forward motion.... in other words, their "rolling resistance" is noticeably higher than the smoothies or my tri-ribs. Where this kicks in is when your on glare ice out back and the front is in sticky stuff.

With normal snow (dryer), I like them. The front seems to steer quite well, but then again, so did the tri-ribs. I think it will eventually get the tri-ribs for year round use.

Now, if that front axle was powered..... then they would be nice.... of course then I would run AG's though....

Grummy all your work looks very good. I want to thank you again for helping me out a few months back when i had no way of hooking up a snow plow to my old 1969 444. You knew from my post what i needed and fixed me right up. You got me off the SHOVEL and in the DRIVERS seat. Sometimes its hard to describe a problem to others, but you seen my post and jumped right in.My only son is 18 and at the age where cutting grass or plowing snow is farrrr away from his mind.GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS wasnt it nice at that age!? Again i thank you! Toadroad

Hmmm, 2 beers per hour? I think I can handle that.

Thanks for the comments fella's.....

Seeing how Orange County Choppers seems to be defaulting on their payments, maybe some of you guys could chip together and buy me a real shop to work in ? You've seen the falling down shack I gotta work with, think what I could do with some real equipment !... LOL !

Maybe we could get a TV show ? I won't run out of ideas anytime soon.

H'mmm... Orange County Power Red Tractors....... awwww... that aint gonna work........ Doesn't roll off the tongue.

Chris,

You need to retrofit one of those Gruman vans as a rolling work shop and travel around like the pickers guys except perform on site mecahincal upgrades / retorations for one of the cable channels. :grin: Mill or lathe might be tough but ......

Somehow, we got to get on TV with it... Someone has to pay for it all. Step vans dont get very good mpg's !

Hi Grummy;
Where did you get those 8-12" long hydraulic cylinders? The shortest one I have been able to find are 12" retracted. I do see the case ones on e-bay they look like perhaps $30 + another $30 shipping at least. It might be the type of thing to buy a few new ones at combined shipping prices. Internet shipping is the clincher when you have to ship out of the US.
Thanks
Chris
