Jason is a member here and yes .....you did butcher his name....... badly. :sidelaugh:

It's Kozlowski.

jason's interest in Case GT's waned considerably and that's why he had that auction. He and his father are deep into full-size Case ag tractors and implements. Jason has continued to try and find buyers for some of the pieces at the auction that did not sell. Currently he has a brand new 4118D Ingersoll for sale. Jason says that only 38 of these were made.

The auction was well attended but a lot of items went pretty cheap, much to Jason's dismay. I highly doubt that Jason would ever be a regular poster here but I asked him to drop by and join so that he could bookmark the site in the event that he needed to post something.

How are those tractors doing? That 226 came to me with the engine in pieces, it had a bad oil pump and it spun a crank bearing. That was an early 1983 226 too, it had a J.I.Case plate, not an Ingersoll Case plate. I really liked that tractor. That tractor was personally owned by the Case dealer In Bethel, PA. He paid his own shop to fix it once, but they actually put the bad oil pump back in and it spun a second brand new bearing! That's when I offered to buy it.

I mowed with that 1977 446 for one summer. It used to run like a top, then it started to get tempermental. I think I had it running pretty well for the sale though.

BTW, yeah, I lost big on both of those tractors! :facepalm:

Jason, Sorry for the butchering of the last name... Well, I sold the 226, that thing was the most tempermental tractor I had ever owned... The Onan would run great for about 1/2 hour then it would quit, so I changed the points and condenser... still no luck, so I had the carb and fuel pump rebuilt (by a Ingersoll dealer) nothing changed, it still would run for about 1/2 hour and quit, SOMETIMES I could choke it and it would run back to the shop..Once it cooled off it was fine, for another 30 mins or so. It just acted like it was vapor locking, so I bit the bullet and put an electric fuel pump on it and sold it, I hated to since I really liked the tractor, It was SUPER CLEAN!!! I think I sold it for around $700.00.

Now the 446 dad still has it and loves it!, he had the carb rebuilt and he uses it every once in a while to mow just to keep it going..

You had a really nice collection and I hated for you to see the stuff going so low...

Thanks for the e-mail

Dave
