    hi everyone.
    i just stumble across your site here and i must say very nice site..:rockin: ok my question is i got a older case tractor or so i was told. im really new to tractors..i would like to know how i can find out what year and model it is so i can get parts for it.. i got it running and have been useing it but the guages didnt work so i replace them and now i find out it wasnt just the gauges, i dont have any oil pressure. when the tractor first starts up it has like 10 pounds of pressure but withen a few mins it drops to nothing..are case oil pump like JD, where you can adjust the pressure? and where do i look for it? i pulled the oil filter screen out and it was loaded with sludge..(who knows how long the oil has been in it LOL) no water or mosture in it. so im going to also change that but i dont know what weaght oil dose it take? ill try to get some pics of it today and post them. it has a narrow frount end and also has a home made push blade on the frount..ive dont some clearing on my land with it and it is a real beast almost unstopable.. im just the kind of guy who likes to know as much about what im running as i can so any info on this will be apperacated very much guys.. Thanks in advance for any help to this matter. and again great site..:tractorsm

    Welcome to the forum, am on lunch break and thought maybe I might pass this along. If the tractor is flambeau red it souns like a S series tractor. I an attaching a picture of the serial number location for the D series, it works the same for the S series exvept the id tag on the S is to the right and D series is under the battery box, will post more when I get home tonight.

    Hi Caseman-d,
    well i did some work on it today and i got the oil pressure working again. and the id tag is long gone. the only number i could find on it were on the shifter cover #5648A and on the rear end #5650A and on the head #A5617A. it is a 4 cylinder with a 4 speed tranny. hand leaver clutch. the dash looks just like the one above except that i took out the push button and put in a key start. my guess from these # it is a 1956 model A ??????what weight oil do you run in the engine? i put 10-30 in it after draining the sludge from it. ive never seen oil so thick LOL but at least now i got oil pressure again..here is a pic of it. and again thanks for your time caseman-d

    hi this thing runs great.. i pic it up from a friend who said he couldnt keep it running.. i played with it for a little while and track the problem to it kept burning the points. so i put in a new sets along with the condenser and it fired right up. i rebuilt the carb also. the thing on the front is a push blade. i guess for pushing snow but ive been useing it to clear out some of my woods and it works great.it has a externil pump to lift the ram. im trying to figure out a few thing about it like the year and such. and yea the oil must of been in this thing for years and years...

    Dan,
    Look on the engine flange behind the air cleaner. There should be a 7 digit number and the letters S. From the picture it looks like the Model SC. Case put the serial number on the engine flange and by the gauges, Good luck

    Well if caseman is right its a 1948 model. He wrote this awhile back and if hes right which I'm sure he is its a 1948.

    caseman wrote:

    Now to explain the serial mumber and how we came up with a year of 1946. In 1938 case switched to a 7 digit serial number. For most tractors built through the 1953 year, the year of manufactre can be determined by a two step method. In the first step, the first and second number (5003490D) are combined , as per sample 50, in the second step substact 4 from the first step, 50-4=46. Another example would be if the serial number was 4805220S, we combine the first 2 numbers 48, minus 4 = a 1944 Case S tractor. The serial number should also have letters at the beginning or the end of the serial number to Identify the model f the tractor. Hope this explains it for those that didn't win this time. Hopefully the next quiz will be a bit tougher. Thank you all for playing.

    Dan,
    You subtract 4 from 52 = 1948 model. There were roughly 4438 SC's made in 1948. They are a handy little tractor. I had a 44 SC but I sold it to a guy in Texas for 300.00 and the guy had it listed on ytmag for 2000.00. but he put a lot of work into it.
