I have road this tractor since I was 3 years old and I am now 41. Dad overlooked the wash and at 82 the stiff clutch it has always had could not get mashed fast enough. Needs pivot brackets and one spindle. The power steering pump started leaking last week also. Deciding whether to let her die or not.

on our 970 the bottom half of the front pivot had broken off and nobody knew it. The story my cousin gave was he was culimulching (probably faster than he shouldhave been) and was pulling up a steep end of the field. With the front end lite, it hit a furrow and the front end folded up underneath the tractor and down she came. All I saw was the aftermath which looked similar to yours in a way. The oil pan got a hole punched up through it, and I'm pretty sure we replaced the front and rear pivots.

Unless you've been looking for a reason to part with it I'd think it would be worth fixing?? It might not be cheap, but if nothing else was broken up I'd have a hard time calling it quits on the old girl.

We jacked it up last night and took a look at it. A spindle and a front bracket will fix it. Might replace the back one just because. Dad thought about getting rid of it because of the clutch. The clutch has always been very hard to mash. I put a new one in it last year but couldn't find a way to help it. People seem the love these ole machines and I am partial to it but the clutch, brakes and gear box has always been crap on it. He bought it new in 1972. The engine is great on it though. No idea as to how many hours are on it since the meter quite in the 80's. He row croped about 120 acres for around 10 years and since then just hay hauling and bush hogging about 100 acres . At this point we have decided to fix it after finding so many parts online last night. I still have to check with Case about power steering pump seals.

I'm near Tupelo, MS. Dad is fine but the axle came close to him and left a dent next to the air filter 3 feet in front of him. This site has the spindle and a pivot bracket but it doesn't say if it is front or rear.
