OK, here goes. I have an early '60s Case 530 Utility (not CK) with a type 31 backhoe and a type 42 loader. The tractor does not have a serial number plate but the serial numbers for both the backhoe and loader are in the 1962 range. It has a gas engine, shuttle, dual-range, case-o-matic, and 4-speed trans. When I got it, the shuttle would not go into reverse. The previous owner had traced the problem to a broken synchro and bought a replacement but never installed it. By the time I had the replacement installed, I understood why he never did it, that was one heck of a job.
During disassembly, I removed the small plug and drained the torque converter itself. I assumed it would refill itself when I put everything back together and refilled the torque tube. Was that a good assumption?

I can put the shuttle in drive or reverse when the engine is shut off but get gear grinding when I try to engage drive or reverse with the engine running. The clutch pressure guage reads about mid range with the clutch out but drops to about 1/4 range when I press in the clutch pedal.

This morning I tried to start the tractor with the shuttle in drive and the trans in neutral. When the engine caught, the tractor drove up and over 8" blocks before I could stop it. Why would the tractor move forward with the trans in neutral?
This should be enough to get us started. I have restored old cars in the past, but never a tractor. I may have bitten off more than I can chew :)

first lets work on the trans issue, I will guess you had the trans shifter off when doing the repairs, I am thinking you missed getting one of the shift forks into the shift collar when installing the shifter cover( it is still in gear even though the shifter says its not) easy to do, as to the pressure on the case-o-matic, it should drop to zero when stepping on the clutch pedal, this can be caused by the linkage being out of adjust ment for starters, unhook the linkage from the pedal and move the spool by hand to the detents each direction and then check eachway to see if the pedal is moving it both ways to full detent position, this will give you some thing to start with, I can scan my service manual if we need more info for you let me know what you find cnt
