1950 LA. She's missing a couple small parts, but all in all she's in good shape, and she'll run with a little carburetor work. We got her to bump off on a little ether, as old nasty gas was pouring steadily out of the bottom of the carb. I'm gonna get her running right, and leave her the way she is. They look better in their work clothes. This is my first Case, I've got 3 other antiques. A MH 44, a McCornick W6, and a JD A. I can't wait to see how it pulls. I'm just gonna put a clevis on the drawbar and go to the track. By the way, I've already got a carb kit, an I&T manual, and an owners manual on the way. I hate jumping in without any information.

My 49 LA was my introduction into the World of Case and couldn't have been a better choice! The LA's are tough old beasts. They work best when lugged down. Hook her up to a heavy load, drop your rpms, and she'll squat and take right on off. When you get ready to work on the hydraulic brakes, there are 3 or 4 of us that have lots of part numbers written down. I just did mine last summer.

I'm in Culpeper, Va. My shop is in Bealeton, Va. That's where I work, and where I keep all my tractors right now. At least until I get my garage built this summer.

She will pull a lot more than you think! The LAs are very strong old beasts. We had a 47 I think I remember and she would pulled an 18' AC turning plow in central Texas black jumbo soil.

Is it late enough to have differential turning brakes? I can't tell from the photo as the twine obscures the pedals but I could tell from the serial number as the changeover is shown in my parts book. I see it does not have factory hydraulics which our 1951 did not have either.

It has two brake pedals and hydraulic brakes. Is that what you mean?

No, the brakes I was referring to were disc brakes on the differential shaft. However, if you need to redo the hydraulic brakes, I have Wagner-Lockheed cross reference numbers written into my parts book.
In my opinion, the differential brakes were superior in performance and much easier to work on as you did not have to remove the rear wheels to access them.
I kind of suspected hydraulic brakes as I see a lever for a parking brake near the tool box.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
