It appears to have the same engine as the VAC just tweaked a little. It has a VA engine block.dbeiter said:Nice!!!! My dad has one of them as well, great little tractors! :thumbsup:Mjoe7 said:
The story behind the goverened down engine was The then President of CASE, Clausen (argueablly the worst guy back then to run Case) found out the VAC would actually out power the SC and so he had the VAC governed down to keep it less powerful. They had plans and proto types of "Live Power PTO's" for VAC's but Clausen said he did'nt want the VAC to out perform his precious SC and had them scratch the plans. Had he not made such poor decisions especially in relation to the VAC it would have been the "Ford 8N" of it's time, only better.dbeiter said:Yes, the 300 has the same block as the VAC just bigger sleeves, 148 ci vs 124, some of the late VAC14's (like mine) have the 148 in them just with the lower governor settings that only allow 1100 rpm...
