So i am surfing around the net this evening and I happen across this picture. http://www.ukrainetzauction.com/2008-sa ... 0_3407.JPG

It caught my eye that this tractor has flow control installed, but that it is on the left side. I have never seen this configuration before and it looks as though it has factory steel lines. Hmmm?
I have seent the manual and parts diagrams for the flow control, I believe they are even posted here thanks to our great site admins. So can anyone offer any explaination of what we see here? the pic isn't reversed or anything since the lettering is correct. So What Gives???? Is this something one off or was this an option from the dealer?

EDIT***
By the way, I believe this tractor will be sold very soon as it looks like it is in an auction. Our own Stewart might be close enough to grab this one up if it is indeed something unique. I put it here instead of the classifieds because it might invoke some opinions and disussion as to its origin and possible scarcety.

EDIT EDIT*****

Okay, twice in one night, I found another just like it, so what is the model number and years this was available.

where are you seeing that manual? what is it listed under, I cant find it under FCV's I would love to see what it looks like, thanks

nevermind, just found it, that's pretty interesting, another variation for collectors to consider, thanks!

EDIT** after looking at that diagram again, I am pretty sure this is looking at the right side mounted FCV, in other words, just like all the ones i have seen up til now. I did see that there are several manuals listed but haven't popped up, perhaps one of these is the type we are seeing these pictures.

I guess I missed that, I was looking at the blue links on the left side that listed dates as upcoming october.

Still, I think it's funny that all this time ('bout three years) of looking around the web, these two machines eluded me for this long.

My next question would be, would a right hand side FCV fit on one of these early tractors as well? I am looking at a early 400 series that I might put my FCV on. I am guessing yes, it's just a different configuration around the same platform. We''ll see if I end up with the tractor.

EDIT
After looking again, I see there IS a 446 for sale in an auction coming up this sunday at the same auction place. So maybe something for Stewart after all. :thumbsup:

As always, the true answer to your question lies in the parts manuals. You would have to look at the manual for the PIN of the donor tractor and the manual for the PIN of the recipient tractor to see how they are plumbed. Keep in mind that Case made changes to the hydraulic system several times over the years. The FCV's used a special steel line with a Tee in it that ran from the travel/lift valve to the oil cooler. The steel "dump" line from the FCV was bent in such a way to line up with the Tee. In addition, the dump line for the FCV on the right side had to cross over to the left side of the tractor and not interfere with the pump and other objects. The lines were also bent so that they would connect to the rear PTO valve as well as the INLET of the Travel/Lift valve and not interfere with other parts. Careful study needs to be done FIRST to make sure this can be accomplished. :thumbsup:

Thanks KD :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :goodpost:

The tractor that sold in June was only 8 miles from me but the auction this Sunday is a 500 mile round trip :headscratcher:

I won't be going to the auction this Sunday. :thumbsup: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

Now if it were a 224 or a 226 then I would likely make the Drive :thumbsup: :trink:
