Don't give me a cignodeal
OK OK OK, It has a hand clutch Don, It's older than both of us. It's nothing spectacular. It's just an old Case DC-3, bad tires, no tires, stuck motor, no seat and the fenders are missing. Out of all the DC's Ive seen this one is a little different. It is a 1939 DC-3, one of 2564 made that year. A pain Jane, no starter, no electrical system, hand brake,(a first for me). Since I was going to go look at it anyways I took the trailer with me. The guy said haul it home it's yours if you want it. The guy even pulled it on for me. I pulled the plugs , 1 and 2 looked good, #3, well I didn't think I was going to get that plug out. It was bad, dry but full of rust and gunk, # 4 had a little rust on the plug but didn't look to bad. I filled all the cylinders with charcol/atf mix and put the plugs back in. Not sure what I'll do with it, it might just become a lawn ornament. Will attempt to post pictures, not much luck latley.
What kind of rails does that DC have on the sides? Looks like you could hang some weights on it.
The sheet metal looks good.
Looks like my LA found another home, it will be joining a fine group of tractors GB LP. 720 LP, FA 350 LP, the guy needed some orange to finish the rainbow!
Don the best way to quite is cold turkey! Good luckarmy
Mike and Mcloud,
I don't know a lot aboutthe tractor. I suspect the reason for the cement weight is it may have been used for plowing. They may justify the one weight. The brackets or irons are the remains of some type of loader. I asked the guy about it and he said it was there when he bought the place. The way the froont end was in the goround it looked like it had been there for some time.
Glad your LA is going to a good home Mike. It's always nice to sell to someone that is willing to take care of it. When ever I sell a tractor(which isn't often) I like to know what the buyers plans are for it. I will pass up a sale if I know all he is going to do is scrap it out. Hope the new owner enjoys it.
