It is actually designated as the A125 engine. The bottom end is the same as the 126 c.i. engine found in the 200B series. I have one in running condition from a "66" tobacco harvester.I will try to get a picture of it today and post it for you. I also have the parts book for the A125. Their weak spot was the bearing on the axial fan, that was not replaceable. If or when it failed, the engine would totally destroy the fan and shroud. 25 years ago, I could find quite a few that were on swathers, balers and combines. It has been quite a while since I have run across one.

Hi Case Nutty 1660

Interested to see your comments re the "CASE" tobbaco harvesters - as far as I know there was only one of these sold here new in the Nelson area of the South Island,of N.Z. where a lot of tobbaco was grown commercially. I never actually seen the machine, however somewhere here in my collection I do have a press article and a photo of the machine away back some time in the late 1950's.
It was powered with the "CASE" 124 cubic inch, "A125" 4 cylinder air cooled engine, this was basically the same engine as the "VA" tractors had only it was air-cooled. That engine was also used as an option on the "CASE" model "77" towed combine from the late 1950's.
Hope that you find this rambling of interest.

Unfortunately, Tom, it ended up being fact, i salvaged the engine as it was being cut up. The harvester was bought new by a Mr. Alf Arner, a tobacco farmer who also owned the Case dealership at Essex, Ontario. Unfortunately, he was stricken with either Lou Gehrig's Disease or M.S. shortly thereafter. The dealership became a company store and the farms were rented out. It took him about 20 years for the disease to kill him.His equipment at the farm sat all that time. Another tobacco farmer then bought the machine,added a tank, spray boom and pump and used it as high clearance sprayer for 10 or 12 years. it then sat likely another decade or so outside before being scrapped. Yes, it was an oddball. Being 3 wheeled, it was pretty tippy w/ the spray tank mounted on top. Ground speed was controlled by a manually controlled variable speed pulley. It would be interesting to know how many (or few) of those harvesters Case built. I would hazard a guess that that was the only 1 sold in Canada.Perhaps guys from the Carolinas or Virginia would know of others.

hey cnt ,, my brother has a tobacco harvester that is not case ,, it has kohler motor,, go -kart style clutching and dinky wheels.. probably not what you are looking for,,anyway, you could harvest sitting or standin , 2 people worked best for spearing ,,chopping height was done with a foot operated constant circle saw ,the saw also worked a automatic steering senser with manual override, pretty cool outfit ,complete with a striped beach style umbrella ,,, but really a find operators was like finding painters for tom sawyers fence ..
