    I just purchased a 1958 Case 420b with loader/ backhoe. I like advise on getting parts, what to look out for as far as problems they have, and would like to get a 18" or 24" used bucket for it, where would I find one...Any advise or info would be appreciated...Thanks..David

    First of all Welcome to the Tractor Forum!:party:

    Second I am not familiar with that model so I won't attempt to comment on it quirks and problem areas. Caseman D is one of our resident Case experts. Hopefully he or one other the other Case experts will pop up here soon to help you out.

    Keep us informed on how you like your "new" tractor.

    Hi David,
    The 420 is considered construction, tractor parts could be purchased from most any Case dealer if they haven't been discontinued. Used parts you may try Don Livingston.

    He is good on the case side, The loader and hoe are probably will be a challenge unless you have a parts manual. Your industrail Case dealer may have information on buckets. With out knowing what the hoe model is it could be tough to find a bucket. That hoe is the same age as I am so it's getting antique status. Don L may be able to help. He has helped me find some parts for an old hoe. Good luck with it.

    Re: Thanks Caseman

    Ask away David. I think I forgot to mention you may want to try going to www.caseih.com , you can get into parts manuals to look for parts. I also have an old JI Case part number cross reference for old number changes.

    420b Gas engine

    Does anyone know if and what other tractors and the years they were used by, the same gas engine that is in my 1959 420b backhoe/loader. Thanks
