I'd like to say hello to all the members. I live in Jim Thorpe, PA. that's at the foothills of the Pocono Mountains. My family has been self employid in the Excavating business since 1978. We also own and operate Sand Spring Trout Hatchery on our property. My first tractor a 76-446 was purchased used from a friend of mine to use at the hatchery. It got abused and forgotton until last Spring when a friend of mine saw it under my carport. His remark was, "that's quite a tractor". That lit a fire under me to bring it back to life. It's been an ongoing mission since last May. It's about an hour away from firing the engine for the first time in quit a few years.
In the meantime, in December, I stumbled upon a 72-222 at a used tractor shop. the owner turned the key, and it fired right up, not an ounce of smoke!. You guessed it, it's now in my garage. It needs some sprucing up, but it's in great shape for a 1972. That leads us to a trip to a local outdoor power equipment shop to purchase points and condenser for the 222. I told the owner it was for an older Case. He replied, do you want to see an old Case? Hmmm! Let's go!!!
We walked out back to the same place I scoured to find Speaker lenses. There it was! A Case 150. My eyes lit up. It has alot of surface rust, but the sheet metal is incredible. Well, we picked it up Saturday. Took it to my buddy's garage and within 10 minutes or so, we had it roaring back to life!
I'll keep the group posted on my progress to make them presentable. My goal isn't exactly to make them look like new, but to make old tractors look like they are well cared for.

Though we've already spoke,Welcome! Guess I don't need to tell to look through the site. The guys over at the Yahoo group made some comments about your pics there. They said you ought to breed the 446 and the 222. Told you already have, but you would have to tell them the outcome. :sidelaugh:

Hi Billygoat, I typed a detailed explanation of where I'm at with the tractors to date. I just ordered points and condenser for the 150 along with an air filter. I had some questions about the hydraulics and the mower deck on that one. I looked at the ingersoll site and didn't find a mower deck that looked like that one. I took the tractor to my buddy's house, so I didn't get a chance to look over the hydraulic lines to see where they came from and where they went to. I did notice the absence of a hydraulic tank.

Welcome to the forum.

Considering the tractors you have in your collection so far, you might want to spend a substantial amount of time reading the FAQ's section here at the site as well as checking out all the manuals that cover your tractors in the Tech Section.

One FAQ that may interest you right now is the one that outlines how to change the hydraulic oil in all of your tractors, including your 150.

Hi Hydriv, I have the 446 and 222 procedures etched in in stone. the 150 is where I need the experience and knowledge. I haven't had it long enough to know much about it. I glanced over the 150 Parts catalog, so I'll be heading for the owners and service manual. I didn't see anything in regards to that mower deck though.

You will find the 150/190 Op manual and Parts Manual in the Tech section. Very soon, the complete 150/190 Service Manual will be there as well.

We have manuals on all the mower decks starting with the C-series used on the 130/180 on. The correct deck is the D series for your tractor.

However, decks are a "wear item" and previous owners have been known to do whatever it takes to adapt a different deck to their tractor so that they can keep on mowing. All I can suggest is that you look at the parts manuals for the D, E, F and G series decks to see if one of those matches the deck you have.

Welcome Nolan. Nice variety of tractors. I believe that Manual G6E3 which covers the '66 Colts would also show your mower. I know we have it as I just scanned it this weekend. That should help until we find a Manual covering the D Model as Tom suggests. Any questions, please ask. Jack

I know I'll be back! The Case Tractor addiction keeps drawing me in deeper and deeper. I've been running Case Backhoes for just about 37 years now, and all we've ever owned is Case Backhoes, Dozers and Track Loaders. I think I am truly a certified Case man.
Regards,
Nolan
