In Reply to: Case model SC posted by PMESECK on July 23, 2008 at 10:15:56:
Last night I pulled the valve cover off. to see if the valves where sticking. on cylinder 3 and 4 both exhaust valves had stuck and bent the push rods. :x At first I thought about pulling the head and rebuilding it but my uncle (77 years old) had told me that this wasn't that big a deal and that Case tractors where known for having alot of play room in the head for the valve lifters. So I pushed the valves down with a hammer (everyone cringe) to there max depth. Moved the rocker arms and pulled the lifters. I then used a hammer and anvil to get them straight. While the lifters where out I had plenty of room to work the two valves free. using transmission fluid to work them loose. when they finally freed up so that pushing them down they wouldn't stick at all I put the lifters back in and set the gap to .015 on all the rockers. I then capped it, put the plugs back in and started it up. You should have seen the carbon shoot out the exhaust. lol. two minutes later it's purring like new. In second gear I can get the front end off the ground again.
My uncle told me that if I put half a quart of transmission fluid in the oil I would have the issue with the valves sticking ever again. Anyone else ever hear about this?
Also I'm converting my SC to a 12 volt system. I have an original generator 6v that came on the tractor. Does anyone know how much I can get for it? it's the original as stated that you have to oil the bushings when it start squeeking. It does still work i think because: I was running it and I touched the battery feed from the generator to the tractor and saw sparks, I do not have a battery on the tractor right now so It couldn't of been a backcharge.
