Hello! I'm trying to sell my uncle's tractor for my aunt, and I have a couple of questions about it. It's a 1970 open station diesel. It has the side console and appears to have 2 gearshifts, instead of powershift (I think), but I don't have a shift diagram so I'm not sure which gear is what. Also, and I know this sounds stupid, but where is the PTO lever? I thought it was the parking brake lever, but I guess not.

Lastly, does anyone know if there's a Case 70 loader or any other brand loader that will fit a Case 870 relatively close to Harrisonburg, VA? One gentleman is only interested if he can get a loader for it.

Thanks as always!

I will try,The standard 8 Speed trans.will have 3 shift collors on the right hand shifter 3-4 on the right next to fender,1-2 in center,Reverse on the next one left.The lever next to your leg will be the Hi-Lo shifter.The Power shift willhave the same shifter on the right with ONLY 2 collors,the left lever will be the power shift lever which has Reverse then 1-2-3 shift in a straight line shift.Your PTO shifter should be back of the HYD.levers next to the fender with a T-handle pin to lock in in the off position. IF it is a Standard trans.,I might be interested in it,or to at least talk(learn more about it).Hope this was of some help to you.Post back .

Yes, this was very helpful! Thank you so much! I'll take this home with me so that I can confirm what I have, but I think that it's a standard transmission. I've had 3 people call and say that they were very interested, only to have them back off when they came to see it. My friend who's a mechanic charged the batteries and discovered that the metal brake line and one other small hydraulic line was broken, so it leaks hydraulic fluid ("profusely", as he put it). He says that it will take about $60 in parts and an hour or so to fix it. But the 336 motor starts up and sounds great, so I think the 3600 hours showing is correct. One other guy is coming to look at it tomorrow morning (supposedly!), but if it's still available after that, I'll pay for and post a photo classified ad here on YT mag.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
