310B newbie owner questions

About a month ago, I bought a 310B backhoe/loader. I am looking for:

1) How to identify exactly what it is that I have?(I know there are several different versions of the 310) I'd like to order a manual, but I'm not sure exactly which one I need.. I don't think this is a construction king, but I'm not sure how to tell..

2) How do I identify which ignition system I have? (I've seen notes about two different systems)

3) A good supplier for tune-up parts, hydraulic seals, etc....

4) The backhoe came missing the hood and grill, and the dashboard has been replaced.. If I could locate an inexpensive hood/grill (in whatever condition), I'd be interested... Are the hood/grill the same as on any other Case? (I've seen a tractor with a very similar looking grill/hood)..

5) I'm also looking for an exhaust manifold, as the one on the backhoe is very rusted and cracked..

6) Any info on replacing the seals in the rams? The hydraulic ram on the right side used for lifting the loader has a leak (I'm not sure if I'm using the right terminology) Any good suppliers out there?

I've also been told by the seller not to use detergent hydraulic fluid, as it will be squirting bubbles out of everywhere... Is this something to worry about?

Thanks in advance!

You can obtain the seals for the rams from you Case dealer. They are still available.

I purchased a 310B-H a few months ago. I will answer the things that I have learned.
1. There should be a number plate on the left hand side of the sheet metal below the steering wheel. The serial number for the loader is on the right hand side pillar (I think). I do not know where the backhoe serial number plate is located.
2. Remove the distributor cap and compare the shape of the dust shield to the parts list. Also compare the rest of the electrical system. I need to do this also so that I can find the correct generator.
3. Regarding parts... Some parts are available from a Case dealer. I went to them so that I could get the springs for the governor/throttle control and know that I was trying to make the correct parts work, rather than re-engineering. This was the expensive route but fast. I have found that the carburetor was common to many brands of tractor, so when I needed a choke fly spring. Looking through the archives, old postings indicated that this spring was not available for this tractor. I purchased that spring from a Ford parts supplier online for 65 cents plus $10.00 shipping and handling! Needless to say you must get creative and combine parts into one order, if you are going to do online ordering of small parts. This site sells very few parts that are specific to this tractor. They do sell copies of the manuals (the one you want is the 300B series tractor manual. The 310B is a subset of that tractor series).
4. Give Don L a call. He can find sheet metal. Search the archives for his number. The height of the side panels and grill screens should be 14 for the 300B series tractors. The 400B series looks the same but is taller. The instrument panels look to be made of unobtainium. There are resources for having the instrument cluster restored, but you may need to find one before getting someone to restore. I am starting to work on my instrument panel myself just for fun, but I will probably have to go to a pro for the paint and graphics. Check the archives for resources, using instrument panel and gage cluster as keywords. I have not contacted anyone yet regarding this part of the project.
5. Try John Saeli. They are available as brand new! I have seen both the manifold and the elbow for sale on eBay and other places, but I would seek first from this site, next from frequent posters that also support this site with their knowledge (such as Don and John and others).
6. I have not reached that part yet. I just got the tractor running well enough to drive it one mile to my folks place last weekend. Next weekend I plan to begin putting the loader on and making it work. Next I must wait for the budget to be able to handle the purchase of a heavy duty box scraper (my tractor does not have a hoe) for counterweight.
7. I do not know what the reason is. There are probably two reasons: 1 the seals may not be compatible with the additives 2 the junk that has accumulated as sludge may get picked up and cause more wear and clogging.
Have fun!!!

Thanks! Will do... Just had to rip the carb off and clean out many years of crud... it was plugged so that no gas was coming in... A week or two ago I had to take the gas tank off and clean out the many years of rust floating in the bottom cloggin things up...(the prior owner had added a fuel filter....but didn"t clean out the crud)..

Sounds like you are going through the same things I am. My tractor sat for six years partially re-assembled from a clutch job, before I purchased it. Pack rats or mice had filled the air cleaner with acorns. I did not know this until I went to clean out the rust and dirt in the carburetor and found an acorn inside. I tore the gasket when I took the carburetor apart, so I ordered a rebuild kit, put the carburetor back together and ran the engine. When the kit came I took the carburetor off again and there was another acorn! At first I was thinking that acorns were falling out of the intake manifold, but then I remembered that the tube between the air cleaner and the carburetor was not in place when I brought the tractor home. The acorns were getting sucked out of the cleaner and into the carburetor! Meanwhile I had lost the choke fly flapper spring when I pulled the first acorn out and the kit did not have one. That is when I had to get creative and find the spring at a Ford parts supplier.
Next up will be putting the loader on. I am hoping to get to it this weekend, but it may have to wait until after the turkey day thing next week.
