'De wife not happy

Stopped to look as a Case tractor sitting on main street in our small town. It looks like an old RC Case. Seems like most parts are there, but definitely not running as both covers are missing on the right side of oil pan and head is sitting on top of block, up enough so tops of pistons are showing. My wife thought I was going to buy it--no room and enough expense trying to get my SC going. Anyone interested I can get the phone #. Advertised price is $650.00 or BO. I haven't told by wife yet that I'm not interested. I think I'll stop again and look, just for the excitement. After all Roger Welsch titled a book,
Everything I Know About Women I Learned From My Tractor"--I wonder if this would fly if I told her I was just trying to understand her better?

when it comes to buying a tractor or tractors or combines... the list goes on...

1. have a plan know the answer to key questions like... "what are you going to do with that?"

"where are you going to keep that?"

"you have one how many do you need?"

"how are you going to move it?"

2. Remind her about the numbers shoes, sofa's... she has...

3. Plan ahead get the honey do list down to low level, and catch her in a good mood.

4. When she is brought in for the looking have all the details worked out...

5. And always be ready to sleep with the equipment until the storm settles down...

Hey Gerald,

Was the RC "Styled" or "unstyled"?

I have to say that the sunburst grille in Flambeau Red sure is a pretty sight...

It wasn't until I got my Case tractors buyers guide that I had a chance to see a unstyled "R" as well. That little casting with the splayed ribs sitting below the sunburst grille made it look even cooler than the styled RC!

This one has no grill, just the radiator and "Case" in raised lettering in the metal. It is gray in color on rubber with flat spokes in the wheels. It has the large oval radiator cap and old style right angle fenders. I note in by service manual that 1936 through 1938 the RC was of the "unstyled" vintage.
